Located in a brutalist city centre square, the elegant Chinese restaurant Wing’s is owned by Wing Shing Chu – but it’s found fame through the patronage of famous names like Wayne Rooney and Chris Evans.
White tablecloths and mahogany-black dividers stand to attention beside walls of plates signed by famous footballers, and in a hushed setting, discretion is all. The space is tranquil, the cooking is upmarket British-Cantonese.
Quirky salt and pepper squid are recommended thanks to a highly seasoned crunchy batter encasing squid ‘cuddling’ a core of steamed king prawns in garlic, soy and coriander. The roast duck, shredded tableside and served with plum sauce and tiny pancakes, reminds you why this is a classic.
Cooking is delicate, light and finessed and, despite the restaurant’s celeb demographic, the wine list is accessible. Particularly recommended is the spicy Gewurtztraminer and a party-tastic ‘private cellar’ section, packed with the likes of Chateau Lafite.
