[Friday 2nd March 2012]
Chie wanted to eat Chinese food tonight. We briefly considered our usual stalwart Kym's, but eventually decided we were getting a bit bored of always having more or less the same things, so decided we should try somewhere else. We had a think about takeaway, and I was reminded how surprisingly devoid of takeaway places Pimlico is.

So instead we decided to try a place in Westminster called Firecracker, which I'd read about a short while back, and sounded like it might be OK. I think they probably do a better job of starters and small dishes - maybe because a large part of their focus is catering for large groups (they have a few karaoke rooms) - so I really enjoyed the hot and sour soup and the spring rolls. The main course wasn't bad - we had a sort of tofu and enoki hotpot, with a side dish of kailan, but the portions seemed a bit small. We usually order far too much when we go out for Chinese food though, so it was probably a good thing to not leave the restaurant overstuffed.
