Opposite Chelsea’s epicentre, The Bluebird, is a casual restaurant that could not be less like its shiny phoenix of a neighbour if it tried. This place is casual, cheap, and a pretty spot for dining solo without anyone presuming that your kind of famous friend got caught in traffic after their Missguided ambassador meeting. They’ve got a big menu of Chinese classics, from pan fried dumplings, to braised beef clay pots, to kung po chicken.
