Royal China Fulham Review

Top 10 things you need to know about the Royal China Fulham:

1) Sometimes I feel like a detective, a greedy Sherlock Holmes with high cholesterol. Festive overindulgence and a misestimation of the time to stop drinking beer and cycle home mean that I am left piecing together clues to make sense of my meal at the Royal China.

2) Clue #1. The menu is extensive. There are the staples but also dishes like eel with spicy salt to excite foodie detectives in investigating flavours.

3) Clue #2. THE Carluccio is sat at the table opposite looking dignified; surely this is evidence of culinary wonder?

4) Clue # 3. The waiting staff are quick, at times too quick. We are asked four times within the first ten minutes of arriving what drink we want.

5) Clue #4. Eventually we choose (every detective story needs a blonde, mine a brother-in-law and wine connoisseur) South African Chenin Blanc that’s dry and pleasingly cold. It proves to be an elementary accompaniment to the spiced dishes.

6) Clue #5. Steamed chilli pork dumplings are deeply savoury and there is juice laden meat within. Doused with vinegary dip, they are moorish.  

7) Clue #6. Soft shelled crab is crispy but soft and fishy inside. The portion is small and the chilli scatterings could be hotter.

8) Clue #7. The mains arrive quickly: aubergine stuffed with minced prawns and black bean sauce is an interesting mix of textures and the quality of the ingredients is evident.

9) Clue #8. After much investigation there is no evidence of any preserved vegetables with the stir fried duck, only onion and pepper. The sauce has a uniform flavour that is savoury but not distinctive.

10) Clue #9. The Royal China needs a second trip on a Sunday - those dumplings lead me to conclude that the dim sum would prove to be excellent and the roast pork spied from other tables seems crispy-skinned and fatty (in the best way).

What does this trail of clues lead me to deduce? Firstly, that the ideal fuel for a long distance cycle is not a lot food and German pilsner. Secondly, the Royal China is a good place for Chinese food. It won’t blow you away but it serves a neighbourhood that want to eat their favourites made with fresh ingredients and if it’s good enough for Carluccio, it’s good enough for me.
