Review on Alisan
A multi-storey glass structure opposite the new Wembley Stadium is the prestigious location for Alisan, flagship restaurant of the Aroma group. The name refers to a mountain in Taiwan, and the interior draws inspiration from the region: traditional Chinese patterns and artwork blend with contemporary design features, fibre-optic lighting and swathes of steel, leather and wood in the cavernous dining room and mezzanine cocktail lounge bar.
Dim sum chef Mr Wong made his name at Michelin-starred Yauatcha and he is responsible for a fascinating array of eye-catching daytime morsels with more than a whiff of cosmopolitan fusion. The 100-strong list is stuffed with esoteric ideas such as crispy duck rolls, sticky green mooli dumplings, steamed spinach cubes with black bean sauce, fried prawn and date dumplings and curious crossover desserts like chilled mango pudding or cold rose gingko nut pannacotta.
Head chef Mr Dai gained his spurs at the Mandarin Oriental in Singapore and his menu challenges with deep-fried soft shell crab and egg yolk, stir-fried razor clams with garlic shoots, and whole aromatic chicken in red beancurd paste. You can also feast on gutsy Cantonese hotpots, casseroles, noodles and more familiar items like roast duck with ginger and pineapple.
