I had such a wonderful experience visiting the Richmond local market (Part 1) and then strolling along the Thames River (Part 2). The heat and hunger drove us to leave the place. We didn’t have a lot of time too. So there the food-hunting adventure begun. We needed food! I really hoped to find Chinese food. As we walk around Richmond town, we were really happy to find one, The Miso shop. They have quite a few chains in London.
Then shop was big and clean. We ordered fried rice noodles. It looks impressive. The presentation was good. Chili oil comes on request. It was free unlike the other Chinese shop where we have to pay 80p for half a small bowl which is too much for a plate of the noodles. We also ordered the pan-fried Chinese dumplings. Well presented too. Both the fried rice noodles and the Chinese dumplings tasted very good except that the dumpling skin was slightly sticky. I presume they added n some glutinous rice flour to the dough. Well, chili oil is important for many Chinese dishes, especially for the noodles. It gives you the punch.
You can take have a look at the fried rice noodles at another Chinese shop here which didn’t look and taste as good., only slightly cheaper. I think I still prefer my own homemade Chinese dumplings which you can learn how to cook it yourself here.
If you like to eat Chinese or Malaysian food in London or other parts of UK, you really have to scout around. Certain shops or restaurant are only good in certain dishes. So, it really depends on what you want to eat. As for me, I just love the one dish meal
Do share your experiences eating Chinese food or Malaysian food in UK or other countries. The best is to learn to cook. I have some recipes for you here on my blog. More will be coming. So, do come back often. Just keep learning and keep smiling. You can only become better in what you keep doing and enjoying.
