We were in London during half term and walked along Oxford Street marvelling at the gorgeous Christmas decorations all around. Soon we were hungry and headed towards Soho street and stopped at our favourite restaurant deep in the heart of Chinatown. We didn’t waste much time and straightaway ordered their speciality; Crispy Roast Duck on a dome of Sticky Rice and Crispy Seaweed as a side dish. I asked for chopsticks as I wanted to test if I had got any better at it since my last visit. The meal was served and with a dribbling mouth, I clicked away!
I quickly realized the point of chopsticks. The clever Chinese had invented the chopsticks (in my perspective) to stop indigestion. Really!
When eating with chopsticks, you are forced to pick a small amount of food and eat slowly, allowing you to enjoy the taste and allow your long-suffering stomach to digest the delicacy!
At one point I took this too seriously – I ended up with this!
I strongly recommend this restaurant with its amiable staff, great hygiene rating, and incredible food. When you visit Canton in China Town, London, remember to opt for their Crispy Roast Duck and rice meal and test your skills with the chopsticks! To wash all down, do not forget to sip their aromatic green tea.
Have a meal you will never forget!
And when you are finished and you’re dreading the long journey back home, pop into the bakery right next door which sells delicious cakes, warm crusty varieties of buns and pastries and all the tea time snacks you can ever dream of! It also sells little fish-shaped buns made of custard pots and allows the public to see the epic machinery that makes them!
