The Five Mile Menu at LANG Café and Wine Bar, Shangri-La London

The Five Mile Menu at LANG Café and Wine Bar, Shangri-La London


The LANG Café and Wine Bar, located on the lower ground floor of the Shangri-La London, has been a favourite of mine to pop in for a cheeky Signature Hot Chocolate every now and then, the temptation increasing significantly as the temperatures in London drop. It is a great meeting spot and the name LANG means ‘Pathway’ in Chinese. I love how much of a relaxed casual spot it is and how you feel at home and welcomed there.

Being in close proximity to the station, as well as to lots of businesses, it is an ideal location to go to for a drink and a quick bite to eat, serving pastries, cakes, lunch and now, a brand new evening Five Mile Menu, which prides itself on using ingredients sourced from within a five mile radius of the luxury hotel. This menu is available from 4pm.

This includes produce from nearby Borough Market, which I absolutely adore, and Bermondsey Street. I love that they are supporting local independent producers, especially as they are practically neighbours. Having purchased ingredients from Borough Market myself, I really admire the artisan sellers and also the top quality of the ingredients they sell. I can never visit Borough Market without buying something!

LANG is open till 9pm and so it is perfect for quick drinks and some food to graze on. We tried the new menu, paired with a glass of wine each, and opted for a glass of Tempranillo for me and a glass of Chardonnay for my dining partner. The wine was excellent and I love that they are serving Wine now as it is such an ideal venue to meet my friends for an evening drink.


We were given some lovely bread to start with, which were crispy and delicious, which we shared while we caught up on the past week.


For our nibbles we shared a plate of Mini Beef Sliders with Smoked Applewood Cheddar and a plate of Sweet-and-Spicy Chicken Thighs which came with a delicious Kimchi Mayonnaise. The food is very casual and ideal for sharing or to have to graze on with drinks.


I would have loved to see a mini cheese board though, as I absolutely love the cheese that can be bought from Borough Market and it would go so perfectly with the wine. Hint hint 😉

Other items available on the menu, which we didn’t get a chance to try on this visit, include a Jumbo Hotdog, Cannon & Cannon Beef Sausages, Canon & Canon Platter, which does include Neal’s Yard Cheese and which I will try next time, Brindisa Gorcal Olives, Oysters & Ponzu and a Pulled Pork Bau Bun. There is also the option of combining this with dishes from the lunch menu, such as the Cheese Toasties.

For dessert you can (must) tuck into one of the amazing pastries that are always available at LANG. They are really delicious and you cannot leave without trying them!

I love packing my bags and going off on adventures as one of the best things about travelling is the ability to just get lost in it. To set aside the maps and itineraries and just see where the road takes you, learning and evolving and living in the moment along the way.

It’s my goal to get swept off my feet as often as possible.

    Nibbles are perfect for sharing and when you are having a catch up with friends and it would be rude not to accompany it with a glass of wine or 2! xxx

    I’ve walked passed LANG so many times but never been in. I’ve been to GONG and TING but not LANG. I think its because it doesn’t have the same views lol but you’ve convinced me to visit xxx
