Baozi lnn, the popular Cantonese dim sum restaurant whose Soho opening last year was followed by a successful expansion to Market Halls in Victoria, has announced that it will launch a third site, a three-storey 120-cover “flagship” on Southwark Street, opposite Flat Iron Square, at the end of June.
The restaurant which has developed a significant following and Instagram popularity — many of its dumplings integrate bright colourings — serves all-day Cantonese dim sum with Hunan and Sichuan influences: the menu includes dumpling as well as dan dan noodles, skewers, and buns.
The new site in Borough will launch with a range of Cantonese roast meats, inspired by the restaurants of Hong Kong. Executive chef Francis Law’s menu will again take cues from a range of regional Northern Chinese street food, but items, such as barbecue roast duck, crispy roast pork belly, and caramelised barbecue roast pork will be “given a welcome kick from the fiery tones of Hunan and Sichuan spicing and influence.”
The new restaurant will open at 34-36 Southwark Street, London SE1 1TU, at the end of June.
