Review on Wing's Restaurant
A hot new arrival on Manchester's thriving Chinese scene, Wing's occupies a prime city-centre site (once home to The Lincoln restaurant). Inside, it's as immaculate and swish as the address might suggest: the interior is now defined by blond woodwork and specially commissioned murals depicting the Hong Kong skyline, pandas and The Great Wall of China. Pass through the sliding patio doors if you fancy a comfortable al fresco meal.
The list of dim sum is not as extensive as some in Manchester, but there are a number of unusual items and everything is cooked with precision: look for steamed beef dumplings with ginger and spring onions, prawn 'envelopes' with mayo dip (yes, the Chinese love it, too!), deep-fried chicken and sesame cakes, and spring rolls stuffed with shredded duck and beancurd.
Cantonese and Hong Kong-style specialities dominate the 150-dish menu, which covers traditional roast meats, a few 'clay pots' (belly pork with yams or stewed beef brisket, for example), plus a strong showing of seafood including stir-fried scallops with mangetout, salt-and-pepper squid, golden king prawns with salted egg yolk, and 'yin yang' Dover sole (one half steamed, the other half pan-fried with soy sauce).
The wine list also makes really appetising reading, suggesting that Wing's is throwing down the gauntlet to long-established, big-name Chinese venues in the city.
