East Meets West

Last night I dined at East Meets West in the Wing Yip Centre on Purley Way, with nou and pals. Everything was very tasty, even (thanks to the transformative powers of deep-frying) the aubergine. I had a couple of treats which were new to me: preserved eggs (much like regular eggs but blue) and deep-fried lotus root (like a deep-fried thing). The staff were lovely, the place wasn't crowded, and I would eat there again without hesitation.

Since I was in the area, I seized the opportunity to visit IKEA and came away with a tenner's worth of random tat including a pineapple-scented candle and a dragon tree to replace the one that keeled over as soon as I transplanted it from Bromley to Forest Hill.

NB: I've just had to create a 'food' tag, although I already had 'cider' and 'gin'. Priorities, there.
