The husband and wife team behind Bun House are back, and this time it's personal. Taking over a two-storey plot in Soho, Wun's Tea Room & Bar is bringing a flavour of 1960s Hong Kong to London, with dishes and drinks inspired by wife Z's childhood in the territory. The ground floor will emulate HK's open air cafes (known as dai pai dong), with street tables and folding doors, while downstairs, the vibe is much more sultry, with a nod to the area's infamous nightlife scene with neon signs and velvet furnishings.

The food and drink menu has been personally devised by Z, with dishes such as sour braised plum duck taken straight from her own grandmother's recipe. Other nostalgic Cantonese dishes include XO bone marrow with fried mantau, skewers and sticky sweet Hong Kong egg tarts. Cocktails will be available, mixed using unusual Chinese spirits and ingredients; think a spicy plum and coke, which combines sour plum-infused baiju, liquorice, sour plum tea and five spice syrup. For beer drinkers, the restaurant is working with small scale local producers to bring a taste of Asia's craft beer scene, as bottles from Monzeen and Young Master will be available.
