Tang is a hidden Fitzrovia noodle bar in a’blink and you’ll miss it’ spot just off Tottenham Court Road, where Head Chef Chen Ng creates unique tangs.
Meaning’soup’ in Chinese, the steaming bowls are lighter than ramen, punchier than pho and fuse together influences from across the entire Asian continent. Healthy yet hearty, they’re the perfect blend of flavour and tradition.
Each bowl begins with a broth of Asian spices including ginger, star anise and mandarin peel Ã¢â‚¬â€œ ingredients typically used for their restorative qualities in South East Asia. Combinations include tiger prawns, beansprouts and a soft-boiled egg; roasted and poached chicken with ginger sauce; or salted vegetables with tofu and shiitake mushrooms.
Small plates include Korean-inspired fried soya milk chicken seasoned with homemade hot sauce; crispy black bean tofu in a white miso sauce; and cold wheat noodle salad with Asian pear, cucumber, pickles, goji berry and a soft-boiled egg.
Homemade gluten-free baos come filled with the likes of fried chicken with pickled bok choi; braised beef with cucumber; and crispy tofu with salted egg yolk sauce. Big flavours are perfectly balanced with pickles and citrus creating that’ying and yang’ characteristic of Asian cooking.
All dishes are dairy free, organic and halal, changing throughout the year to reflect the best seasonal produce available across the UK. Pop in for lunch and enjoy your chosen tang and a drink for just £10, Monday-Friday, 12noon-3pm. Alternatively, all dishes are available to takeaway.
Complement the spice with a Chelsea Blonde, Bohemia Lager or Paxton IPA from The London Beer Factory, based in West Norwood. Red and white wine are both available alongside juices from Owlet in Kent, Karma Cola soft drinks and Lalani & Co Oolong Tea from Taiwan.
