Four Foodie Reasons to Visit Chinatown this Winter
Whether you’re after healthy or indulgent dining options this new year, we’ve got it covered.
Tired of turkey, OD’d on After Eights, by now you’re either slowly still coming out of your Christmas food-indulgence coma or are well in the throes of a healthy new year eating regime. Why not make one of your new year’s resolutions exploring the food and drink delights Chinatown has to offer and tanatalise your senses with new food and drink experiences. Here’s four of its finest eateries you must visit this winter.
It’s always snowing at Shibuya Soho. We’re talking towering piles of shaved ice generously stuffed with Oreo, strawberry and azuki bean fillings. Known as ‘bingsu’ they’re a popular Korean dessert which will put a smile on your face from winter through summer. If you’re on a health kick why not tuck into Shibuya’s sumptuous sushi, otherwise you can’t go wrong with a hearty, warming katsu curry.
W Does Brunch!, The W Hotel – Sunday 22nd January 12pm – 5pm
Shake off those cobwebs from the night before at the W Hotel’s oh-so chilled out Sunday brunch. Hosted in the super-chic W Lounge, expect a scrummy selection of breakfast favourites and Sunday lunch staples – all washed down with many-a Bloody Mary. Sound-tracked by DJ Anna Greenwood’s tunes and accompanied by comfy slippers and newspapers, what more could one want for a sublime Sunday?

It’s virtually summer all year round in South East Asia so bring some sunshine into the colder months with a cheery visit to Malaysian spot, Rasa Sayang. Chow down on a classic nasi lemak or a flavoursome beef rendang, all washed down with their pearl milk tea.
A newbie on the Chinatown block, Butifarra arrived in 2016 bringing its cool take on Peruvian cuisine to the West End’s streets. Their specialty? Ceviche and plenty of it. Think: sea bream, king prawn, octopus, scallops all of which come with their homemade tiger’s milk. Sound healthy enough? Let’s not forget their cold pressed organic juices. Your body (and taste buds) will thank you.
