Yes, we hear you: why would you bring Chinese to your team when you can get it from 27 different places within half a mile of your house. Don't feel bad, but Chinese food is no longer the easy way out. With greater culinary diversity in London comes a better understanding of China's huge range of cuisines – regional variations in spicing, ingredients and techniques make your menu much more interesting.
The staples are still there, so if you want to grab the usual crispy duck or chow mein, you can. But there's the chance for your team to try something new, and bond over a cuisine whose variety might surprise you all.
