LONDON – DAY 12 (CHINATOWN & PATISSERIE VALERIE)

Our last full day in London – finally our last full day in London. Tomorrow we will be leaving to Frankfurt, we started our trip there so have to leave from Frankfurt – flying marathon!

Ok, I have to admit, I was super craving for Chinese by day 12 … so we headed to London Chinatown this morning. For some reason, Chinatown seems bigger this time. I guess last time I was visiting Chinatown at night, can’t see much. During day time, it seems bigger.

We stopped in Wai Chai Corner for breakfast, I was so happy to have some dim sums! At first I thought the place was kind of small, but realized that they have 2nd floor. Anyway, we don’t mind sitting at 1st floor. We ordered so much food, the people there probably think we just came out from jail!

The food was not bad, portion was decent. For some reason I always thought the food in Europe are smaller portion, but I guess not Chinese food. Oh there were only 3 of us.

My must order every time I go dim sums, salty egg runny bun … but this one is lack of salty egg flavor and not so runny.

We had a little walk around the SOHO area shop around and a little Piccadilly. We stopped in Patisserie Valerie for coffee break. I was here last Jan 2014 and had a Full English Breakfast 🙂

Very nice and grand entrance, this place was packed around 3pm.

We each ordered some cakes … I ordered a Mille-Feuille it was a little too sweet to my liking but with my Latte, it was ok.

My co-worker also ordered Strawberry Cake and Black Forest … both commented the coffee was good.
