Restaurants, Chinese Chinatown

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

It’s unlikely to win any design awards, but this cosy restaurant with blue velour chairs and not-quite-matching carpet is one of the friendliest pit stops in Chinatown. We can even forgive the soft rock radio soundtrack when the congee’s as good as this: just £4.10 will get you a nutritious, belly-filling (melamine) bowl of fragrant jasmine rice porridge with ginger, juicy slices of pork, flecks of salted egg and finely sliced spring onions. A few pence more allows mandarin and fishermen’s versions. Look to the rice dishes section of the sizeable menu for other one-plate bargains, such as rice topped with braised eel and crispy pork, squid, or barbecued pork and scrambled egg.

The noodle dishes tend to be good too.
