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

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
