Chinatown – In the heart of London Chinese district there is a little gem that caught my attention.
I discovered Opium browsing up on internet and when I went there for the first time it turned out to be beyond my expectations.
A nice and cozy place with chinese decors where red colour prevails. Situated on three floors, it is sophisticated but not formal and on its website we can read “our home is your home”: I can confirm it as the staff is extremely welcoming and friendly.
The drink list is not too long but really interesting, with both classic and signature cocktails created by professional and expert bartenders.
Drinks can be accompanied with delicious dim sum prepared by an authentic chinese restaurant below.
There is also a “secret” room (with a different cocktail menu) called Peony.
You should go and see with your eyes what Opium offers and hides!
My favourite cocktail:
- Opium #6
My favourite dim sum:
- crab & samphire dumplings
- lobster dumplings
- seabass & fennel dumplings
