Wei Guirong, the chef behind London hits Xi’an Impression in Holloway and Master Wei in Bloomsbury, picked up the Observer Food Monthly’s “best newcomer” at last night’s award ceremony in London. Renowned author Fuchsia Dunlop, who profiled Guirong and Xi’an Impression for Eater London, presented the chef with the award.
