The Crow had a great idea yesterday: How do you fancy a trip to Royal China on Baker Street? How could I say no? The thought of eating something that didn’t consist of roast, or sausage or richness, as per everything else we’ve been eating this past month was a definite driver. Apart from the fact that I love dim sum whatever the weather, especially when it comes from Royal China. We turned up a little later on in the day – around 3.30ish and it was actually a lot more civilised. The staff were far less harassed than normal and the wait to be seated took a fraction of the usual time. The food was hot and fresh and tasted so good that each dim sum morsel was pretty much woofed down as soon as the bamboo steaming basket hit the table. Royal China on the weekend is pretty much full from 11.30am to 4.45pm when they stop serving dim sum and believe me, there is good reason for this!
