Restaurant review: Xoong, Mt Eden

3.5 Kim Knight for New Zealand Herald 24 June 2018

The main thing to know about Xoong is that, in my opinion, it's the best food currently on offer in Mt Eden village.

We had a couple of absolutely outstanding dishes, starting with the cold-cut chicken ($18), which you might not be immediately inclined to order in the depths of winter, but should.

Think Hainanese chicken (succulent, poached white meat) in a pool of unusually flavoursome and quite fiery sauce, which we slurped by the spoonful.

The press material for Xoong advised diners to expect food influenced by Chinese, Japanese and Vietnamese cuisines, peppered with "fragrant flavours from other parts of Asia". I read this and thought the potential for it all to go student-flat-on-a-Sunday-night was huge. Luckily that busy kitchen knows exactly what it's doing.

Restaurant Review: Xoong, Mt Eden

4.0 Jesse Mulligan for Viva 6 June 2018

I ate here with the Herald’s Simon Wilson, an occasional food writer himself, whose journalistic instincts are so strong that even at a restaurant he is fearlessly committed to uncovering the truth. We were eating at some fancy place a few years ago and I said: “I’m pretty sure the lock in the toilets doesn’t work”. He said: “Well, you can’t write about it if you’re not sure. Let’s go and find out.”

And so, diners at that particular fine dining establishment would have seen two grown men get up from their table and head for the toilet. They would have heard some bumping, shaking and unlatching and then a satisfied voice say “see, I told you it doesn’t work” before the two men returned to the table, sat down and moved onto their next project: vigorously sniffing the scampi.
