A Stroll to Chinatown

[Monday 19th March 2012]
Following the long running tradition of Chinese food on a Monday, and given that it was a very pleasant evening, I left work "early" today (at 5:30) and took a stroll past Buckingham Palace, through St. James's, and over Piccadilly Circus to Chinatown. For a change I went to the Loon Fung supermarket, rather than our usual haunt (See Woo) which meant I found a few interesting and different things we wouldn't normally buy. I still find Chinese supermarkets rather fascinating. I took the bus back from there, and managed to get back to the flat just after 7, and started cooking.
So for dinner we had mock crispy duck pancakes to start, followed by two dishes for our main course. One was ho fun with vegetables in a black bean sauce, the other was choi sum with tofu in a garlic, ginger and vodka (instead of the usual sake) sauce. It all came out pretty well.
