Top 10 food and drink trends for 2018


While London has already gone wild for Vietnamese steamed buns rammed with pork and peanuts at Bao in Soho, where you’ll still find queues snaking round the block, we believe 2018 will be the year where the capital goes mad for dumplings.

Spearheading the movement is London Bridge newcomer Duddell’s – a sister venue to the Michelin-starred Hong Kong original, which is already charming diners with its adorable goldfish-shaped dumplings.

Also set to cause a stir this year is Taiwan steamed dumpling institution Din Tai Fung, which will open its first site in the capital this year, adding to spin-offs in Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan.

Meanwhile, Chinese/Japanese fusion restaurant Mei Ume at The Four Seasons in Trinity Square serves a sublime dim sum platter, including one prettified with gold leaf, and all-day dim sum teahouse Yauatcha in Soho is the queen of steamed delights.
