Beijing Dumpling

 This restaurant is famous for their xiao long bao. They serve pork and chicken dumplings and some other choices I can't recall. First, the skin is not as thin as Din Tai Fung... but it's considered OK since we're talking about chinese food in a western country. I have no idea why pork in London tastes different. It has this really bad smell and so the pork dumplings that they serve has that "smell" too (this has nothing to do with the skills of preparing the xiao long bao...). The soup in the pork dumpling is too thick. The chicken one tastes normal. A bit too dry, as we already know xiao long bao should have a small spoonful of soup in it. The chicken one don't really have much in it actually, not even half teaspoon. Overall I would say that it is average. I wouldn't rate this as one of the "best" in London, but definitely not below average. It's average. But I wouldn't go for it unless I really miss chinese food.

 Sweet and sour pork. 

 Some chicken dish, can't remember what was it.

Eggplant / Aubergine / Brinjal, whichever this is...
