Launched today (September 13) in the Food Hall area of ââthe North London development, the new site follows the success of the brand’s original siu mei kiosk near Liverpool Street station, launched in 2019.
Childhood friends and chefs Cheong Yew (Uncle Lim), Pui Sing Tsang (Uncle Sidney) and Mo Kwok (Uncle Mo) specialize in homemade Cantonese roast duck chopped to order, crispy pork belly (siu yuk) and char siu pork.
Two traditional Hong Kong dishes will be added to the existing menu; Aunt Jun’s char siu sou (handmade by Uncle Sidney’s cousin who is famous for his sweet oven-baked BBQ pork pastries) and Curried Fish Balls (traditional Hong Kong-style fish balls served with Uncle Lim’s Secret Curry Sauce).
âRoasted meats are the star of the show, but for our new launch, we’re very lucky to have convinced Aunt Jun to make Char Siu Sou for her, flaky on the outside and tender and meaty on the inside, like it should, âsaid Uncle Sidney.
âSiu mei brings back precious memories; Growing up in Hong Kong in the 70s, we visited the famous roast meat cafes near Wan Chai market and watched the skilled chefs cut delicious pieces of roast duck and char siu pork, âsays Uncle Mo.
âSiu Mei remains one of the most popular types of food for everyday Hongkongers, but in London you can really only find it in restaurants in Chinatown, so we can’t wait to keep releasing this food around. the streets to make it accessible to everyone as you would find across the Far East.
