Hunan

Hunan is one of my favorite Chinese restaurants in London.  What I like most about this place is that they don’t have a food menu and you are left to the mercy of the chef- which isn’t a bad thing. All you get is a massive book which is full of different kinds of wines and sake.

After a point I lost count but honestly we must have tried at least 25-odd dishes. Despite there being 8 eagerly waiting hungry souls, I did manage to squeeze in some shots of my favourites.

We started with the lettuce wrap. I love the contrast of the crunchy lettuce with the soft mince chicken. Great combination.

No turnips for me please! However I did give it a try and was pleasantly surprised. I think I might have had 2, maybe more than my share.

Hero of ’em all. I couldn’t exactly guess the ingredients for the batter but it was very light and had a lot of garlic. We ordered this one a few times until the waiter actually said ‘are you sure you want another one?’

There wasn’t much left of the spicy chicken sauce.

Lamb seemed to be the preferred meat on the table and rightly so. The crispy lamb with the orange jelly was a hit.

A Chinese meal is not complete without noodles and not just any noodles but the hawker style crispy Chinese noodles.

No introduction needed. Fried banana with heaps of vanilla ice cream. Simply delicious and doubled for the table.

Signs of a good night. Even the waitress seem to have enjoyed the sake shots. Definitely recommend the lychee flavored shots. Sorry I forgot to take a picture of the bottle but I am sure they would know if you ask for lychee flavored sake.

If you are a foodie its a great place for a date night if not then please take a group of friends but do go to Hunan. They don’t encourage walk-in’s so please make sure you book in advance.
