Jen Cafe – Chinatown

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. Two portions of the vegetarian dumplings were ordered. One portion was steamed…

Royal China – Bayswater

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. But by the time we left, there was a…

Yo Yo Bar & Restaurant – Shipley
