Uncle (and auntie) Wrinkle

I had a nice dream a couple of months ago… It was about a cosy place somewhere in London where not just I was surrounded by beautiful potteries and beautiful people, but where I was also being served authentic Chinese food (a lot of food actually) at extremely cheap prices!

I spoke about this dream with my friend Namiko and when she told me that place does actually exist and that is owned and managed by two really good friends of hers I kindly told her to shut the f**k up!

Here’s Namiko! She likes pork belly!

She took me down to Uncle Wrinkle in New Cross that very same night! And since that day I now have faith that sometimes dreams actually do come true!

Kwan and her husband Patrick are specialized in:

  • Ceramics >> My opinion on Kwan’s potteries (even if I’m not an expert on this subject) is that  are designed to make people happy and that they have a perfect combination of beauty and simplicity.
  • Smiles >> A lot of them! And all free of charge!
  • Noodles >> Especially the Singapore style vermicelli.
  • Pork belly >> Yep, you read that right. Pork belly! The best I’ve tried in London by far!

I think I’ve already used too many words… I’ll let the pictures do the talking now!

The final touch…

Uncle Wrinkle is located just outside New Cross Gate station (299 New Cross Rd, London SE14 6AS) – Go and say hi to Kwan & Patrick… I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
