There’sanother new restaurant in the Dalston ‘hood and the opening has gone slightly under the radar. Fan Tang cooks, by their own admission, mostly Chinese food.
It’s small but nicely decked out with simple decor, small tables and a little bar – great for fast dining but a little uncomfortable for a leisurely dinner, however given the size of the menu we doubt you’ll be in there for the long haul.
We ordered most of the dishes and liked them all, the best however were the pork and prawn wontons with black vinegar and house chilli oil and the sichuan spicy pork with cheung fun. Both CRACKIN’. Lightly battered salt and pepper green beans were perfectly crisp and the tender braised pork belly was full of meaty flavour.
The Gong Zai Mein, a little like ramen was a rich broth and filled with meat, lots of meat and packet noodles, which they aren’t afraid to state on the menu. All in all a great little edition to the Dalston scene and that’s without even mentioning the donuts with salted caramel sauce and ice-cream…
