Chai Wu Launch at Harrods

I knew the headache this morning was inevitable!  Last night we were quaffing champagne and whisky cocktails at the rather glamorous opening of Chai Wu.  Owner of Mango Tree and founder of Pan Chai, Eddie Lim has opened this stunning new restaurant on the Fifth Floor of Harrods.

The interior, inspired by the five elements in Chinese philosophy, fire, water, wood, earth and metal, are complimented by marble, leather and timber to make for a beautifully decadent setting in which to eating some rather fantastic Asian cuisine!

Canapes included warm purees of potato and wasabi with creme fraiche and beluga caviar, foie gras cones with yuzu and champagne jelly and absolutely delicious smoked duck tubed with crab, asparagus, caviar and crispy duck on top.  Mouth-wateringly good!

Dessert was also divine - especially the white and dark chocolate mousse!

Mmm... white and dark chocolate mousse!

We mingled with Gok Wan and Lizzie Cundy and were also lucky enough to hear talented London born pianist Ji Liu playing Chopin on a gorgeous grand piano.
