Elevating Cantonese cuisine, Duddell’s London, the first international outpost of the celebrated Hong Kong brand, opened in London in November 2017.
In Hong Kong, Duddell’s is the premium destination for classic and authentic Cantonese cuisine. Located in the heart of the city, since 2013 the Michelin-starred restaurant has inspired diners with its modern interpretations of iconic Cantonese dishes. Continuing this tradition, Duddell’s in London Bridge will showcase authentic Cantonese dishes and hand-crafted dim sum, using only the freshest, premium ingredients sourced in the UK and abroad.
Housed in the historic St. Thomas Church, Duddell’s London will celebrate long-held cooking traditions and the complexity of Cantonese cuisine in a relaxed and convivial setting.
The classic-meets-contemporary menu showcases the founding principles of Cantonese cuisine where carefully sourced produce is either steamed or stir-fried to the chef’s exacting standards to create bold and delicious dishes. Head Chef Daren Liew has spent time in Duddell’s Hong Kong and will be serving favourites from the restaurant including their signature ‘Dim Sum Symphony‘ as well as new creations exclusive to the London menu.
Previously Executive Sous Chef with the Hakkasan Group, Daren brings with him over 20 years of experience in Cantonese cuisine. The menu at Duddell’s London starts with small bites such as ‘Spicy Almond Soft Shell Crab’, ‘X.O Beef Shin with Sea Vegetables’ and ‘Smoked Black Angus Ribs with Red Wine Soy and Baby Peach’. These can be enjoyed alongside main dishes such as Duddell’s ‘Supreme Lobster Noodle’, ‘Truffle-roasted Black Cod’ and ‘Rhug Estate Lamb with Shishito Pepper and Eryngii Mushrooms’.
Staying true to Cantonese tradition, Duddell’s also offers a Peking Duck feast as one of its signature dishes. the Duck is carved tableside and served with an array of different condiments including a fennel sugar to sprinkle onto the crisp skin and aged mandarin sauce.
Duddell’s Hong Kong was conceived to create a cultural and social destination for people with an appreciation for the arts, providing an inspiring backdrop where people could meet, eat, drink and socialise. The London restaurant follows suit and reflects this in their menu with ingredient-led dishes that highlight texture and technique, showcasing the origins of Cantonese cuisine.
