I read the Kevin Kwan ‘Rich Asians’ trilogy recently and the following quote amused me, describing the Singaporean group’s favourite places in London:
‘The Holy Trinity are Four Seasons for the roast duck, Mandarin Kitchen for the…lobster noodles, and Royal China for the dim sum”
I think it still holds true (though I’d swap out Royal China for Bright Courtyard)!
My friends and I went to see Wonder Women at the cinema in Whiteleys shopping centre and afterwards we felt brave enough to try the queue at Four Seasons. We were pretty lucky and got a table after 5-10 minutes; not bad for a Saturday night.
Of course we had the duck, the real highlight of the meal, succulent and crispy and not overly sweet. Otherwise it was soothing standard Cantonese food, including sweetcorn and chicken soup and king prawns in rice. Mmmmm…
