Christmas in Chinatown London

The festive season has arrived, and the West End is in full Christmas mode, with lights and sparkles in abundance. While Chinatown London may not be the first place to spring to mind when considering Christmas destinations, there’s no better place to stop by for hearty dishes, late-night cocktails, and a spot of shopping for unique and quirky finds.

Plan your visit – whether you’re seeing the sights, gift shopping, or exploring the Christmas lights of the city – you’ll feel the winter chill in the air. Chinatown London has plenty of warming dishes and delicacies, from steamy soups to hearty hot pots, lavish laksas, and cosy cups to keep you warm.

This Christmas, many of the talented bakers and chefs in Chinatown London have been working hard to bring you the ultimate festive cheer with Christmas-themed goodies, which you can pick up from Chinatown London. This year, Santa’s Sleigh has landed in Bun House, leaving behind a delicious gift. Tear open the edible gift sack to reveal three festive buns in an assortment of flavours: gingerbread caramel, dark chocolate orange, and white rabbit candy cream.

When in Chinatown, it’s hard to resist taking a stroll down the iconic Dessert Alley, home to a generous offering of sweet treats, boba teas, and hot drinks. In winter, it’s especially tempting, with a wide selection of delicious warming drinks. Pick up a warming ube hot chocolate from Mamasons Dirty Ice Cream, topped with whipped lilac cream and finished with a cookie crumble – the perfect drink to enjoy with a side of Christmas shopping.

If it’s big bowls of piping broth you’re after, head to Kung Fu Noodle and slurp up some soup noodles. Grab a spoon and brave the heat at Zhang Liang Malatang or lap up the finest Malaysian laksa in Chinatown at C&R Café.
