Chinese New Year London Celebrations
China Town London
It's very sad to see it rain again for Chinese New Year but that didn't stop me from going to China Town. It was really busy, damp and cold just like last year. Lots of tourists come in to the West End especially for the celebrations. I got my two packs of snaps and we headed for the food stalls but then decided to try out Jen a small Chinese cafe for Linner ( lunch & dinner ) just on the corner of the square next to Tokyo diner. I was with my mum but my dad was going to join us. They seemed to be really busy and sat us down quickly. My mum ordered some Beijing and fried dumplings then was told she was only allowed to order once so maybe it was better to wait for my dad to show up. We decided to order anyway because my dad was taking too long. But as soon as we ordered they slammed the bill down on the table and asked for the money up front. My mum explained that my dad was coming to eat and pay the bill. My mum said that if Ryanair had a restaurant this would be it. Which I found hilarious. It was very stressful just sitting there and feeling pressured to pay. When we finished eating my dad arrived and ordered himself more dumplings, white rice for my brother and a bubble tea similar to the one he had in Thailand, Peach & Honey. It was good food, well priced but a bit too strict.
