Jen Cafe is a casual eatery of the no fuss kind of a place. The star attraction of this cafe has to be the handmade dumplings. These can be seen being made in the front of the shop and in the shop window.
Sundays are a great time to see friends over a spot of brunch. This time it was brunch with a difference – a dim sum one! Royal China is a popular place and luckily as we had got there before noon, we didn’t have to queue.
Asian fusion cuisine can be a bit of a hit or miss situation. But Yo Yo had nothing at all to worry about with the taste and quality of their food.
For Chinese New Year this year, we were lucky to have our family member from overseas in town for it. To make it an extra special celebration, we went to Alan Yau’s Michelin-starred Yauatcha restaurant in Soho. This finally fulfilled yet another one of my dreams and that was to go and dine at a Michelin-starred restaurant.
Originally, Soho was our place of choice for a Sunday lunch and meet up. But the eatery that we had in mind happened to be closed on Sundays.
Just before the Christmas holidays, we were lucky enough to be taken out for dinner by our friends from Digital Tribe. It was a fantastic evening at Ping Pong filled with amazing food, good company and a great atmosphere.
Tucked away in one of the side streets behind the busy Upper Street in Angel, is this fantastic noodle and dumpling bar. It’s nothing short of great fresh tasting food. I really liked the simplicity of New Culture Revolution.
Dim sum is always great but it is better going with a group of friends for a weekend lunch. It means that you get to catch up with everyone and also share lots of different dishes.
We originally came to this restaurant just for tea but then decided to have some dim sum as well. It has a nice location opposite the Stables Market in Camden. There was not a great range of vegetarian steamed dim sum but we did have the vegetarian Thai spring rolls. These were crispy and not at all oily….
