Discovered Min Jiang Chinese Restaurant next to Hyde Park. They had many really good reviews regarding their excellent and exclusive quality Chinese food, especially Beijing Duck – a must try! It is weird that I work at Hyde Park … Continue reading →

Karolina is my working colleague, and we bond to each other so quick after few months working. She loves Chinese food more than I do sometimes. Both of us are seafood’s lovers, and normal I always invite her to my place, so I can cook good seafood for her. In the past few days, we had the most amazing Karaoke, German sausage nights together, and she decided to cook Polish food for me today as well.
She told me that they don’t do lunch, and normally they eat breakfast at 11am, then have a late afternoon big dinner, then have a small sandwich at night. This is Polish food culture. It was quite weird, but weird because we get used of three time meal system.
Karolina cooked a slow-cook beef with wild mushroom with some polish rice, and drink was butter-milk (sour yogurt) together. It was beautiful and they normal eat with a big portion as well. It was lovely to try some real Polish food without travelling there. That’s why I love living in different places, because you always meet some wonderful people from all over the world.
I am a lucky girl who always meet gorgeous people. It was the best few days in Leeds with all my friends together.
After the business exam, Vicky, Miwa and us decided to have some dimsum as a reward after my hard revision. We chose famous Pingpong restaurant in Liverpool Street to have an unlimited dimsum. It means that you spent 17 pounds and eat whatever you want.
The restaurant environment is modern and stylish. John and I order some lychee drink, friends ordered some Wulong tea. The menu has about 15-25 choices for you to choose. Dimsum’s flavour was quite authentic. However, we all could tell that they were slightly westernised. Unbelievably, we ate 30 dishes in total, and I ate the most.
Overall, I think it’s worth trying and definitely worth 17 pounds if you can eat a lot like me. I will still recommend it for you to try the Pingpong Dimsum. Some more delicious dimsum pictures are here.
I met some new friends in school and we planned to eat dimsum on Friday night. John suggested Yauatcha, a famous top dimsum restaurant in Broadwick Street, Soho. Previously I’ve tried Shanghai Blue and Royal China in Canary Wharf. Royal … Continue reading →
As a dimsum lover I ate a lot of delicious dimum while Guangzhou; it’s one of the main things I love about Guangzhou. As a new visitor in London I wanted to see what the dim sum here is like.
I read Shanghai Blues is one of the better dimsum restaurants. As well as serving dim sum in a luxury Chinese and Western style decoration they also serve Gongfu Tea and have live Jazz music every Friday night – everything I could hope for in a restaurant! The dimsum is about 5 pounds per dish, normal evening dish from 15 pounds.
Dimsum and food is 3.8 of 5; environment 4.5 of 5; service 4.5 of 5. I am sure I will return there again.
