If the constant queue snaking down Shaftesbury Avenue is anything to go by, this Hong Kong-style tea house is the best restaurant in Chinatown. The Eight isn’t quite that. It’s a big, pine-heavy, canteen-style restaurant that has an air of Muji about it. But you don’t come here for another LED diffuser, you come here for eggs. The whipped volcano egg—a whirling, swirling, mound of eggs with curry on the side—is as aesthetically pleasing as it is flavour-wise. Other things, like roasted meats and noodle soups, are decent enough, but you’re better off going with the pineapple bun.
