XU, London

Time is running out in 2017 and I’ve realised that there are quite a few places that I visited, and loved, which I haven’t shared any words or pictures. These pics and menu descriptions come from two meals that I’ve enjoyed at Xu – for me, the opening of the year in London.

We’ll be dining with Xu on New Year’s Eve and hope to return as often as possible in 2018!
