Chinese Laundry

This morning, my husband and kids were all out doing their various things so I took myself to Chinese Laundry on Upper Street for brunch.  I’d tried to go yesterday but my husband wasn’t all that up for it.

It’s often a bit funny going out to eat by yourself.  If the place was rammed with groups of people having a wicked time, I probably would have slunk off feeling like a complete Billy.  However, there were just a couple of Chinese foreign students sitting in the window so it was cool.  I hung my bright pink Landsend mac up on the hook and sat at a nice little table right in the middle.

The inside is cool, very retro without being too kitsch.  It’s the sort of place that would be very admired in Brighton (where I grew up).

I had a latte and something called Egg hug dumpling (or something a bit like that).  It was basically an omelette with a load of beef dumplings in the middle and was delicious. Basically exactly what I was in the mood for.

They weren’t super quick but that was okay as I had Diary of a Provincial Lady on my kindle.  I was introduced to this by another blog, Mrs Ford’s Diary, which is well worth a read.

It wasn’t even expensive.  I absolutely recommend it.
