Mr. Meng Chongqing Gourmet: the soul of breakfast in Chongqing

In 2019, Meng Fei, a famous host from Chongqing, opened Mr. Meng Chongqing Gourmet restaurant on Charing Cross Road in London, bringing the delicacies of his hometown to overseas diners. The restaurant offers noodles with meat sauce and thoroughly boiled peas that can be easily mashed. Hot noodles absorb enough condiment at the bottom of a bowl and, with only a little soup, are mixed with the toppings. 

The two gourmets will taste a bowl of Chongqing noodles during the visit. The noodles are compact and spicy, showing the candidness and enthusiasm of the Chongqing people. Its companion is the refreshing brown sugar cold cake. The soft and delicate cold cake is paired with authentic brown sugar. It is like visiting Chongqing in summer, you can unlock more kinds of Chongqing's signature dishes there.

Bar Shu: a journey of food treasure hunt

With a history of 12 years, Bar Shu is a time-honored brand in London. It brings authentic Sichuan cuisine to the UK and makes many westerners fall in love with the Bashu flavor.

These treasures make up the famous dish. The crisp, saucy, spicy chicken is so addictive that you always want to find the next piece. The fun of the dish lies not just in enjoying the delicious chicken but also in the pleasant surprise of finding chicken in many chilies. This coincides with the theme of "EXPLORING YUMMY". During the visit, the two guests will start a journey treasure hunt and enjoy the pleasant surprises of Chongqing delicacies.
