Suckling Pig @ New Fortune Cookie, London

3 months in the making, 9 of us visited the New Fortune Cookie on Queensway Saturday night to eat a whole suckling pig plus other courses. We'd been talkig about eating a whole roast pig since May but logistics were complicated.

The pig came out first to much acclaim, unsliced, and was left on the table for two minutes... it was then whisked away and 15 minutes later was sliced up into hundreds of little pieces. The meat was fantastic, tender and soft, with excellent crackling. It was a lot of fun sharing, eating and chatting away and the quality did not let us down.

Even though we were all stuffed there were seven more dishes to come

We followed up with steamed scallops which were excellent although the sauce was a little heavier than I would have liked.

Finally six more dishes were brought to the table:

- dry shreded beef
- asparagus with scallops and shrimps
- dover sole wrapped with bamboo shoots soya buds with garlics
- brocolli with ginger
- shrimp cake with garlic hearts
- lotus wrapped sea food and rice

I loved the lotus leaf wrapped rice adn the dover sole

It came out to around £30 a head and was a great, great Saturday night.

  1. Seriously, thanks for this recommendation.
    I've been in London for 5 years now and have never found good Chinese food.
    I'll give this a try asap!
