Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Stack keeps it simple with the focus on freshly made dim sum in a wide variety of flavours. From silken, steaming, translucent globes of spinach and scallop, to crispy fried spring rolls of Chinese black truffle and vegetables, the choices go way beyond the usual pork and prawn varieties. Dishes arrive through the kitchen hatch fresh from the steamer or fryer, allowing diners to mix and match from a choice of more than 30, along with a selection of rice or noodle dishes. The décor is simple and the service brisk but friendly. But with the kitchen taking last food orders at 8.30pm, this is a place to eat and leave rather than linger over a long and intimate meal. It’s a small, homely space and almost always busy so it’s worth booking ahead too. And with the emphasis here on quality ingredients rather than quantity cooking, don’t be surprised if the most popular dishes sell out.
