For those who aren’t aware Duddle’s is officially one of the hottest new arrivals to the culinary scene of London. An export from Hong Kong originally founded in 2013 takes up residence in St. Thomas Church in the heart of London Bridge, a stone throw from Borough Market and The Shard, Duddell’s London serves up authentic Cantonese cuisine with a fresh interior backdrop.
The interiors offer City Luxe and Asian Influence in perfect Ying and Yang. Designed by London-based architectural practice Michaelis Boyd who actioned the restoration of the 12th centrury church sees this Grade II listed buildings architectural history and design respected and translated into an upscale, fine dining eatery.
Duddle’s Cantonese menu is run by head chef Daren Liew trained in the art of Cantonese flavours and in the kitchens of Two Michelin-starred Hong Kong spot Duddell’s. Renowned for its Arts going crowd, the location of its London branch is a little more City goer than Hipster.
The menu on offer is nothing far from extraordinary, The restaurant comes equipt with dim sum kitchen/ bar and upper floor seating overlooking the vast and colourful dining room. We opted for a selection of Chef’s Recommendations, Ribs were glazed to excite and duck spring rolls were shredded, skewed to sophistication and can be paired with the houses array of international wines and artisanal cocktails.
The price tag here is not for the faint hearted but in comparision to what the area and Duddle’s has to offer and its contributions to supporting the Arts, you feel alot less guilty.
