What they say:
Red Farm is a new Dim Sum restaurant opening in Covent Garden, run by the same foodies behind New York's famous Pac Man Dumplings. The venue will be based a short stroll from Covent Garden station and will follow the footsteps of its American sister venue by taking traditional dim sum recipes and twisting them into new, quirky plates. Details are thin on the ground at the moment, but keep an eye out on this page for the latest updates.
What we say:
The opening of a venue like Red Farm is bang on point with the current dim sum-mad trend that seems to have intoxicated London's restaurant circles. Over the past two years, Covent Garden has seen a number of bao, dim sum and dumpling restaurant open, all promising authentic experiences and inventive flavours. Red Farms quirky dishes will undoubtedly help it stand out. But key to its success will be if the chefs can maintain this creative edge and continue to offer new angles in a pretty over-crowded market.
