Perfect For: Adventurous Eating Drinks & A Light Bite

Not content with franchising their successful Bao restaurants around the city and retiring on a huge pile of gold coins, the owners behind the ridiculously popular Taiwanese small plates concept decided to follow it up with Xu (pronounced ‘shoo’), an upmarket take on the aforementioned cuisine. The dining room’s apparently set up to resemble an old-fashioned Taiwanese tea parlour, and they’re serving sharing plates of food like egg drop crab and short rib and marrow pancakes. From first impressions, when a dish is good, it’s fantastic (like the marrow dish), but by and large, there are more misses than hits, and the experience - from the service, to the layout of the restaurant itself - feels stilted and awkward. Watch this space.
