Lahpet Is Going South of the River With a Third Site Opening in Bermondsey

The hot Burmese joint is expanding once again

The founders of one of London’s few Burmese restaurants are gonna be building up the cuisine’s base in the city as they’re planning on launching a third site soon. Lahpet originally opened in Shoreditch in 2018, introducing many of us to its eponymous dish, a tea leaf salad popular in Myanmar. The restaurant now has two locations in London – with its second opening in Covent Garden in 2022 – and is gearing up for a third.

The newest addition to the family will be coming to Bermondsey in July and will be called Lahpet Larder, after the area’s historic nickname, ‘London’s larder’. The menu here will centre around sharing plates and bowls, with dishes set to include the likes of:

  • Pork with pon yay gyi
  • Rakhine salmon & papaya salad
  • Dawei Mohinga (regional fish noodle soup)

As for desserts, expect rice flan with coconut jam, Burmese milk tea ice cream and housemade sorbets. The drinks list will feature a few signatures, with highlights such as a lime leaf and lemongrass spritz, a tamarind and jaggery sour and a pickled tea oil martini. All you south London Lahpet fans, get excited.

Opens July 2024
