The neon sign puts you in a film noir set in vintage Chinatown, but Bao Bei is totally of the moment – it’s taken this long to get such a fun take on Chinese dining. In the kitchen, chef Joel Watanabe (of Bin 942 and Araxi) spins ingredients from close by with flavours from far away, irreverently and intelligently reminding us that comfort food doesn’t have to be whitebread.
