Dinner at F.east at Walcot, Bath

On the corner of Walcot Streets lies a very unassuming restaurant, F.east at Walcot, focusing on Hong Kong and Chinese cuisine. Having recently opened in May, their aim is to bring fresh, home-cooked and authentic food to all in Bath. We couldn't wait to try it!

Chicken Satay 🍗 [£6]

The chicken was tender and juicy and it came with the most delicious satay sauce.

Salt & Pepper Squid  with King Prawns 🦑 [£8.50]

The squid and prawns were lightly fried and tasted both fresh and light. It wasn't greasy in any way and was spicy yet not overpowering.

Apologies for the dark/yellow photo - our flash was acting up!

Mixed meat crispy noodles with oyster sauce 🍜 [£12.90]

We really liked this dish. It had a nice mix of meat (chicken, beef and signature char sui pork) and was packed with lots of vegetables. It was definitely a far cry from the heavy, greasy Chinese food most of us have previously experienced. We also loved the different textures in the dish with the crispy noodles.

Crispy duck and belly pork  🍖 [£12.50 each]

This was all delicious, but the duck was the star of the show which isn't surprising considering that HK roast duck is one of their specialities. It was so yummy, succulent and so tender. It's a must-order from us.

Steamed rice 🍚 [£2.50]

The perfect accompaniment to the wonderful meat dishes.

Strawberry and toffee dumplings served with vanilla ice cream 🍓 [£6]

These were surprisingly light and refreshing. The perfect palate cleanser after more savoury items.

🌟 F.east at Walcot's interior is basic, but their focus is on providing fresh, authentic Chinese & Hong Kongese food which it does incredibly well. It's a very clean and relaxed atmosphere filled with students, couples and solo diners. They have created a space welcome to all. They offer discount and loyalty schemes to students and have a lunch menu which is perfect for office lunches. They also do takeaway and, of course, are perfect for a casual evening dinner or substantial lunch.

🤵🏻 The restaurant provided excellent service and staff were very attentive throughout.

🌿 The menu has a huge variety and they have an extensive dedicated vegan menu.
