Andrew Wong is Chef Patron of A.Wong restaurant in Pimlico and Kym’s at Bloomberg Arcade in London.
Born and raised in London, Andrew’s path into cheffing was far from typical. He studied chemistry at Oxford University and then transferred to the London School of Economics, where he studied Social Anthropology.
When his father - who originally ran the restaurant in Pimlico - died, Andrew enrolled at Westminster Kingsway College culinary school with a view to helping out in the kitchen. During his time there, he made the decision to expand his knowledge of Chinese cooking and spent a year in China working in the cities of Beijing and Qingdao and studying at the Sichuan Culinary Institute just outside Chengdu. Returning to London in 2012, he took over the family restaurant and after a refurbishment and rename, he launched A.Wong.
In 2018, Andrew opened his second restaurant, aptly named Kym’s, at Bloomberg Arcade.
