Black charcoal bamboo fried chicken bun & sweet potato fries at Bull in a china shop ShoreditchAn exciting new restaurant from brothers Stephen and Simon Chan, owners of The Drunken Monkey, is launching in the heart of Shoreditch in early April. Bull in a China Shop occupies a Dickensian fronted pub opposite the Tea Building which will offer an all-day dining concept and whisky bar with a subtle hint to the Orient. The menu offers stand out dishes such as free-range Chinese spiced, whisky glazed rotisserie chicken, black charcoal brioche buns and vibrant superfood salads with breakfast time offering bao buns, fruit and vegetable smoothies and sweet and savoury congee (rice porridge) as well as breakfast classics such as sausage and eggs muffins and eggs Benedict.

The restaurant will be open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a takeaway option available throughout the day for the fast-paced local Shoreditch clientele. By night, the atmosphere will become more intimate with a full dining menu available and a polished copper cocktail bar serving over 30 choice Japanese and Scotch whiskies - including some very rare and special editons bottles - with a three-course set menu option that will run from Thursday to Saturday including two whisky pairings. Sundays will be all about brunch and a classic Sunday roast offering.

Chai Wu, a new modern Chinese restaurant, is just opened on the fifth floor of the world-famous luxury department store, Harrods.

The restaurant is an opulent space that can accommodate 90 guests. Chai Wu is set to be one of the most anticipated restaurant launches of the year.

The menu at Chai Wu was created by Chef Jason See Meng Hwa, who specialises in Chinese cookery, and overseen by Ian Pengelley, Group Executive Chef, one of the UK’s leading experts in Asian cuisine.

Together they have created a diverse menu incorporating speciality and luxury ingredients. Starters include soups, dim sum and small dishes such as Chilean sea-bass dumplings with gold leaf, and a Wagyu and black pepper puff. For mains, diners have the option of à la carte dishes or fresh meat, fish and vegetables grilled to order, such as poussin with spicy chilli-lime dressing. Signature plates and specialities will include Beijing duck, Alaskan king crab with soy glaze, and lotus root and lily bulb in a spicy toban sauce.

The restaurant concept and interior design are inspired by the five elements in Chinese philosophy: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Harrison, the restaurant’s design firm, has integrated a blend of traditional and contemporary Chinese culture.

Incorporating natural elements throughout the space, finishes will be a mix of marble, leather and timber. There's a theatrical charcoal grill in the centre of the restaurant; the dining bar surrounding the grill will offer guests a prime view of the chefs at work and a glimpse into the excitement of the kitchen.

Bruce Langlands, Food Director at Harrods says, “We are absolutely delighted to be collaborating with Eddie Lim on this exciting project. Serving a range of fresh and vibrant dishes, the restaurant will provide customers with the best of Chinese cuisine in a theatrical yet elegant setting. A fantastic space for entertaining, Chai Wu will no doubt be one of the top dining destinations in London.”

Owner Eddie Lim is thrilled with the new addition to his restaurant group. “We’re really looking forward to welcoming customers to all that Chai Wu has to offer, and providing them with first-class service – as expected in Harrods," he said. "The food at Chai Wu will be exotic, colourful and incredibly tasty.”
