Well before Covid decimated trade in London's Chinatown, longstanding New China restaurant on Gerrard Street suffered its own catastrophe. A fire ripped through the well known restaurant back in September 2019, leaving most of the restaurant seriously damaged.
But now, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the restasurant has finally reopened its doors. Over the last 20 months it's had a full refurb inside as well as a new paint job outside.
Right now they're operating a 'simple' menu which still runs to four pages of dishes that cover most of regional Chinese cooking. And, in a few weeks time, that'll expand to their full menu of 83 dishes covering everything from crispy shredded beef to fragrant and hot duck necks alongside Chongqing marinated chicken and edible tree fungus salad.
Still to come as well is the basement floor which, when it reopens, will focus on hotpots.
