New Idea: Wong’s Pop-Up Restaurant

11 Jul 2013

For film buffs and food afficionados alike, this new pop-up restaurant, in a disused Citroen garage no less, looks set to be a real treat. Transporting diners into an authentically-styled 1960s Hong Kong locale, inspired by Wong Kar Wai's seminal film In the Mood for Love, Wong's will be serving all manner of Chinese comfort food, with a weekly-changing menu, whilst playing Chinese Jazz long into the night. They'll also be offering a varying roster of cooked-up Oriental cocktail concoctions, for which you can also BYOB to be mixed. 

Sounds tantlising, right? Not sure how close it will come to the film's brooding intensity or the chance of pathetic fallacy-fulfilling rain, but make sure you catch a table there before their last night on the 28th of July. 

Where? 133B Upper Street, London, N1 1QP

When? Wong's is open every Thurs-Sun until the end of July. 

How much? Tickets for the five-course set menu range from £25-35. 

How do I book? You can book tickets here.
