Blogger extraordinaire, Food Feels, snaps some Chinatown magic moments

Orient London Chinatown

From bubble-waffles to bountiful dim sum, discover what culinary delights blogger Food Feels unearthed when he took a trip to Chinatown London.


Aussie food blogger, James Thompson (aka Food Feels), has clocked up almost a hundred thousand Instagram followers – no surprise given his drool-worthy snaps of restaurants, cafes and food markets over the world. In fact, so talented is his eye for what makes a good pic, James is setting a new brand and influencer network called Sweet P Social.

As he’s now residing in London, we invited James to spend a day in Chinatown to capture some of its finest foodie moments on our official @ChinatownLondon Instagram account. Check out what his lens spotted here…

Dumplings Legend on 15-16 Gerrard St

“I partnered with @chinatownlondon to spend the day visiting some local restaurants. Beginning the day we started at Dumplings Legend. Situated in the heart of Chinatown, Dumplings Legend offers key dishes such as Pork Siu Loung Bao on their all-day lunch menu as well as a range of steamed dumplings. I even met the passionate owner Geoff – thanks for having us!”

Orient London at 15 Wardour St

Orient London was definitely one of my favourites. I’m a huge truffle fan so I quickly spotted their Crystal King Prawns with black truffle and X.O chilli sauce. Their Cheung fun is also some of the tastiest in town.”

Bubblewrap on 24 Wardour St

“If you’re on social media then no doubt you have seen the hype around Bubble Wrap the last few months. A line out the door from both tourists and locals trying to get their hands on the latest viral sensation. Freshly made egg waffles filled with ice-cream, sauces and all the toppings.”

Le Hanoi on 4 Macclesfield St

“My go-to meal in London is Pho and Le Hanoi does it extremely well. I tried their Ox-tail pho, rich and tasty. Try some of their sides and depending how hungry you are – try their Char-grilled duck!”

The ShanState on 100-102 Shaftesbury Ave

“I haven’t tried Burmese food before, it made sense to try The ShanState on Shaftesbury Road, full of hearty dishes and soups with a nice kick. They’ve also added a pretty out there dessert menu so have your cameras ready.”
