Interesting article in today's Guardian on underground restaurants

I know it might seem a bit lame having your second ever post on the subject of someone else's writing, but I think that this article warrants it. Seems that the phenomenon of Hong Kong's 'private kitchens' (which I read about in Fuchsia Dunlop's recent memoir) are spreading around the world...


  1. I read the article too. I liked best its point about how you need to feel a sense of occasion while you're in an underground restaurant, otherwise you're just, you know, eating for money in some stranger's living room. Does sound fun though. Have you been to any yourself?

  2. I haven't! But if I end up in Hong Kong again I will be sure to check them out, and will definitely have to go to a London one when I'm there in the summer.
