Chinese Laundry Brockley, London, UK
May 23, 2019
Full-time
We are a modern Chinese food concept, run by two Chinese girls. We used to be a small and very cute restaurant on upper street. Unfortunate events happen, we lost the restaurant, ever since then we have been 'no mad' in the big London city.  Now we reside in SE4 London, Brockley to be exact, an ex-takeaway shop. A even smaller and more intimate space than any of the sites before. We only have 16 seaters, with a weekly changing, family style, ' hidden' menu. The space is very limited, but not the food. With a space like this, it actually gives us more flexibility to do more.There are so much food culture and techniques in Chinese food are unexplored. We are always curious to find more and the historic reason behind them.  At the moment, we are opening from Thursday to Sunday for dinner.    Menu here is always inspired from our food memory growing up in all the different places around China, from street food night market to grandma's kitchen. Staying true to the food that gives us emotions, at the same time we are trying to source our ingredients from the best suppliers available, stay seasonal, stay local.  For us cook with full respect to Chinese cooking methods, which truly respects the nature, is the best way to share our food culture. And that’s what we think of being authentic- it’s always the word only comes in when justifying the approaches and motivation.  To be able to cook all the food we had in our childhood, there’s still too much to learn- for thousands of years, Chinese people have dedicated to food and it’s a massive system relating universe, agriculture and food for human, full of wisdom. And it’s a shame for it not to be understood, celebrated and appreciated. All the oily, msg, sweet& sour concept that relate to Chinese food well known across the world are not about the food we are eating in our daily life in China. We are more than happy to introduce and share the delicious and tasty food we love with as many people as possible.
