One-Michelin-starred Duddell’s from Hong Kong opens its first outpost in London’s Southwark, near London Bridge.

The artsy restaurant known for serving up modern Cantonese cuisine fits right into this locale, the home to some of London’s most iconic arts institutions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe.

While soaking in the atmospheric surroundings of its venue at St Thomas Church, a historic Grade-II listed building, savour Duddell’s Hong Kong’s signatures such as Dim Sum Symphony and Peking duck served with eight condiments. Executive head chef Daren Liew, formerly from the Hakkasan Group, will also be whipping up other dishes such as smoked Black Angus ribs with red wine soy and baby peach; and Rhug Estate lamb with shishito pepper and eryngii mushrooms.
