Joe’s Oriental Diner: It’s a Dive

Scott Hallsworth of the critically acclaimed Kurobuta is back and this time he has taken inspiration from the dive bar subculture of the Orient where people come together to eat and listen to music and has created Joe’s Oriental Diner.

Opening today on the Kings Road, the restaurant which seats 38 will be serving up pan-Asian, bare bone recipes which originate from dishes eaten in the ports of Asia dishes. So expect to find the likes of fire cracker chicken, crunchy sweet and sour fish, coconut short-rib Rendang and slow cooked duck red curry with lychees.

Drinks will include Frosties – no that is not some cereal/alcohol cocktail hybrid, they’re actually frosted beer tankards, as well as Chinatown teapot cocktails. For those in the know there will be a secret ‘Den’ bar upstairs as well which will sell all manner of obscure spirits and libations.

Joe’s Oriental Diner: Opens 6th March, 251 Kings Road, SW3 5EL
