Yipin China Restaurant in Islington is one of London’s latest and best exponents of authentic Hunanese cuisine, a particular culinary heritage from southern China that has a dedicated band of devotees among Chinese food connoisseurs. Sharing scintillating spicy bases with its neighbour, Sichuan, Hunanese cuisine is distinguished by its widespread use of regional smoking and curing techniques that make it a unique – and delicious – segment of Chinese cuisine. Yipin China Restaurant (found on Liverpool Road among the Angel’s hub of global restaurants) puts this special cuisine on show – for an authentic taste tuck into the soup of stewed spare ribs and bitter melon, get your spice fix with the fragrant chicken on a bed of chillies, and above all try their trademark ‘dry wok’ dishes, especially the one of pig intestines if you want a true regional Chinese specialty.
Never dissapoints and delicious food as always. The egg fried rice is some of the best ever eaten and the stir fry vegtables are crisp and tasty.
Really authentic tasty Chinese food. Staff are efficient and always love coming here. So happy I finally found top quality Chinese food in London!
This place is not cheap but the food is excellent with so many exciting dishes. Lots of veggie options too. The cuisine is Hunan and Sichuan.
