Four Seasons Chinese Restaurant (文兴酒家)

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Chinese Food|United Kingdom

Sorry for not updating for quite some time, we have been quite busy these few weeks. Anyway, here’s a post on our 1 day trip to London. After we done enough of shopping in London, we took the underground to Bayswater to the Four Seasons Restaurant – the restaurant known for its legendary delicious roast duck.

Within minutes, we arrived at the Bayswater Underground Station.

The restaurant is only a few steps away from the underground station, very visible and easy to look for. There are quite a number of souvenir shops located in this area, a nice place to buy or just take a look at gifts.

It was only half past four when we arrived at the restaurant. We were early because we wanted to avoid the crowd and also simply because we were hungry after the rather unpleasant breakfast which we had in Chinatown, which we will post in the future. The restaurant was considerably small but clean and pleasant.

The various types of chili which went perfectly with the roast duck!

Priced at £10.50 for half a duck, the Cantonese style special roast duck (粤式烧鸭) was superb! It was simply one of the best roast ducks we have had so far, and it was quite hard to believe that London is the place we had it, instead of somewhere else in Malaysia. The skin was so nice and crispy while the meat was so sinfully delicious, very moist, flavourful and chewy. The sweet sauce complemented the duck so well, and the thick layer of fat beneath the skin of the duck was the hidden treasure. Every bite was sensational!

Priced at £6.80, the hot and spicy bean curd with minced pork (麻婆豆腐) tasted very good too! It was originally served with minced beef but we changed it to pork since I don’t take beef. The dish was moderate spicy, but very delicious, flavourful and aromatic! Very nice to go with white rice, we wiped the plates clean as we did the same for the roast duck.

Service was a little below average and it takes quite a long time for food to be served. Fortunately, food was excellent and authentic. If you really want to try good roast ducks, this would definitely be the place for it. Very highly recommended!
