Dim Sum At Oversea Chinese Restaurant, Chinatown, London

SECOND MORNING IN LONDON WAS SPENT IN CHINATOWN AGAIN!  It was recommended that we must taste the Hongkong Dim Sum in Chinatown while we were here.  So once again, we took the subway from Old Street to Leicester Square where the Chinatown is.  We were pretty excited to see what they have in store for us.  In fact there were so many restaurants which offer Dim Sum among other varieties and we did not know which specific to go into.  In the end we settled for the one with more people going in.... More people means good food, right?
Old Street is the nearest station where our hotel was located... 
 Reached Chinatown within half hour.... 
We chose Oversea Restaurant for our Dim Sum brunch.... 
Nice ambiance with three levels...
Ours on the ground floor and there is one upper level and one basement for customers...
I let my kids did the ordering... and they ordered 7 different varieties...
Here are six varieties... the one I left out was the custard pau... 
I saw the 7th  one in this photo here... 
Come Let's EAT!
And the total for the Dim Sum came to 26 pounds... 
 Oh oh.... my girl wanted Polo Bun again!!  This time she got it at a different shop...
Chinatown Bakery and the bun cost 1.2 pounds... 
After our hearty brunch, we moved on to the next itinerary.... 
British Museum at Holborn cos it has free entrance!
LOL...

  2. The last picture is lovely.

    If your hotel is in Old Street and you are into Vietnamese food, make a beeline to Kingsland Road, Shoreditch (not far from Old Street. Check the local buses), now affectionately referred to as the Pho Mile. Viet restaurants lined both sides of Kingsland Road.

  4. Generally, dim sum is more or less the same anywhere in the world, give and take a bit here and a bit there - especially if they are all from Hongkong or Shanghai. Nicer than the ones in Ipoh? The prices sure would be, that's for sure. :D

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
