Andrew Wong has already made a name for himself on the London restaurant scene with his first endeavour, A. Wong. This was opened in 2013 on the site of his father’s Chinese restaurant in Pimlico and has been a great success for the past five years.
Wong’s cuisine has always focussed on getting the best out of the many different cuisines found in China’s different regions. Kym’s, named for his father’s aforementioned restaurant, will follow a tapas-style of dining with small dishes such as Yunnanese lemongrass salad, peanuts, lettuce, chilli, and lime; sharing platters of crispy duck and pancakes; and slow-poached soy chicken with ginger relish, and rice.
Those expecting the dim sum the chef has become famous for will be disappointed. Do not despair, however - according to Wong himself, “some of the flavours will be instantly recognisable and even hark back to the nostalgia of the original Kym’s menus, with sweet and sour elements and more rice-based dishes. Like so much of Chinese gastronomy, it’ll be deceptively simple food with a big emphasis on the ancient craft of Chinese ‘roasting’ meats — and that includes poaching,” Wong said.
