Southbank Theatre Bites – A London Guide 

London’s Southbank is home to some of the world’s best theatre, with iconic British venues such as the Royal Festival Hall, Shakespeare’s Globe and the National Theatre all following the curves of the river Thames. Here are the best spots to grab some food before the curtains open…

1. Bian Dang 

Housed in an airstream, introducing Bian Dang

Located directly outside the National Theatre, Bian Dang’s chef Tristan Lee Son serves up Taiwanese rice boxes and steamed Bao. Dishing up ‘twisted’ chicken that is marinated in a supreme garlic soy sauce and then dipped in sweet potato flour (for a crunchy bit), Bian Dang has come a long way since the concept opened in 2015. Oh, and the fried oyster mushrooms and zingy pickles…

Where? National Theatre. London SE1 9PX.
