Review on Mr Kong
Back in business after a fire in 2007, the Kong family's Lisle Street restaurant remains one of the reliable fixtures of the ever-changing Soho Chinatown scene. It looks tiny from the outside, with only a few tables on the ground floor - although there's extra space on another level; the trappings are a motley assortment of yellow tablecloths, prints and catering-style green chairs.
Over the years, the kitchen has established a reputation for rock-solid Cantonese cooking, with a big emphasis on seafood. Here you will find mainstream specialities involving lobster, crab, king prawns, scallops and sea bass, plus more esoteric delicacies like fried cuttlefish cake with garlic sprouts, braised eel with roast pork, stuffed fish maw with baby clams and prawn paste, and such like. Meat-eaters with a taste for the unusual can order deep-fried pig's intestine, duck's web or spicy pork knuckle with jellyfish; more conventional palates might prefer beef with ginger and spring onions, or chicken in black bean sauce.
