3 Shuang Shuang
While London has a seemingly limitless supply of quality Chinese eateries, very few have mastered the art of the hot pot. The signature Chinese staple comes as a large pot of hot stock, which you will then use to cook a variety of delectable treats. From beef to veggies and shellfish, there is something to satisfy any palette. If a boiling hot pot is beyond you, opt for their delicious and traditional snacks.

You might’ve tried the popular Lucky Chip pop-up somewhere around the city. Their notorious success has lead them to finally open a permanent location in 2016. The new venue will allude to an American steakhouse from the 1908’s. On top of their serious burger menu the new Lucky Chip Burgers & Wine restaurant will concentrate on fish and steaks. That’s if you’re not going there just for their impressive repertoire of 120 wines.
