Fen Noodles is from the Dumpling Shack family and has spots in Spitalfields Market and Canary Wharf. The hand-pulled noodles are amongst the best you can get in London, but it’s up to you whether you pair them with slow braised chicken, potatoes, and peppers (AKA big plate chicken), pulled lamb, or garlic and aubergine. There are a couple of murger options and custard buns too, but it’s the noodles that you should be paying most attention to.
