asparagus season I’d be surprised if this asparagus were British, but even if it’s Spanish it’s at least a decent nod toward seasonality.
Wings’ chief speciality is its renowned sea bass dishes priced daily according to going rates and weight.
The Yin Yan Sea Bass worked out at £30.90 which wasn’t horrendously expensive but perhaps more than it should have been.
As the name implies its fillet cooked two ways: one steamed, one fried.
It’s a great way to show off the fish even if the chef choose to leave in the dark meat.
The sauces lacked punch and were a little vague and wishy washy for my tastes.
That said the quality of the sea bass shone through.
As you might expect in a ‘celeb-haunt’, the wine list is somewhat decadent without appealing to those of us who may be a little more financially embarrassed than Premier League footballers.
I hovered over the listing for a Lafite Rothschild 1999 (£1,199) and decided instead for a Tsingtao (£4.40). At £80 for the entire meal including five beers, I’d say there’s much better value Cantonese or indeed Szechuan food elsewhere.
