The Chinese Laundry Room is owned and ran by chefs Peiran Gong and Tongtong Ren. The pair are bringing their rendition of Chinese family food and lesser known delicacies from their native China to North London. The restaurant which opened in November 2015 offers London’s first all day Chinese breakfast/brunch alongside a separate dinner menu.
The Chinese Laundry reinvents our perception of Chinese cuisine. Peiran and Tongtong are paying homepage to dishes best remembered from their childhoods. Both were heavily involved in food from a young age; Peiran grew up in a coastal town in Northeast China and was taught by her father to fish and forage ingredients. Such lessons led to her firm understanding of the importance of fresh, locally sourced produce. Whilst Tongtong was taught traditional Chinese cooking skills by her parents. Combined with Tongtong’s interest in preserving food via curing, smoking, pickling and fermenting methods, this has allowed the duo to create a menu using the best of British ingredients, while bringing originality to the London dining scene.
