Chef / Proprietor - Andrew Wong 

Born and raised in London, Andrew's path into cheffing was far from typical. He studied chemistry at Oxford University and then transferred to the London School of Economics, where he studied Social Anthropology. When his father, who originally ran the restaurant in Pimlico, died, Andrew enrolled at Westminster Kingsway College Culinary School with a view to helping out in the kitchen. During his time there, he made the decision to expand his knowledge of Chinese cooking and spent a year in China working in the cities of Beijing and Qingdao and studying at the Sichuan Culinary Institute just outside Chengdu. Returning to London in 2012, he took over the family restaurant and after a refurbishment and rename, he launched A Wong. In the past three years, A Wong has not only gained critical acclaim for their inspired and diverse menus, but also been rated one of the best Chinese restaurants by The Good Food Guide, received 1 Michelin star and three AA rosettes.

Andrew now launches his second restaurant 'Kym's' at Bloomberg Arcade, in honour of his family and the original restaurant.


DESCRIPTION


Andrew Wong has named his second restaurant Kym's, after his grandmother. In the heart of the new gastronomy centre of the Bloomberg Arcade the impressive building reveals an elegantly simple interior with natural wood, subtle Chinese decor and bare plaster walls, made warmer by the use of pinks and plum tones in the soft furnishings. With its large glass frontage, during the day it is bathed with natural daylight and at night, the lighting creates an inviting and intimate ambience. 

The centrepiece of the restaurant is the beautifully traditional Cherry Tree, surrounded on one side by the sweeping staircase to the restaurant Mezzanine, and on the other by a stunning copper-topped bar. Perhaps the highlight of the restaurant, if you get the chance, is to take a seat at the open kitchen bar where you can really watch the masters at work. 

"Focusing on the ancient craft of Chinese roasting, our menu pays homage to the many gastronomic regions of China and the creativity and craftsmanship of London's Chinatown." Andrew Wong.
