The acronym stands for ‘Tai Pai Tong’, a type of open-air food stall popular in Hong Kong in the 70’s. Appropriately, the food is fast and good, and thankfully the surroundings are comfier than the folding tables and stools. Authentic Chinese dishes are on offer, which were typical with this type of food stall.

Myself and Mr Debs were visiting London and were after some dumplings, so figured the best place to get them would be Chinatown! We have a fantastic place in Glasgow for dumplings (Dumpling Monkey, check it out if you're ever up our way) and after seeing a photo of the ones here we decided to try it out. The...more
Mediocre Chinese food. Everything we ordered lacked a "wow this is actually really good" factor.
I had the roast duck + bbq pork over rice, and it was better than expected but not great. The duck was a bit on the leaner side, but it was well seasoned. The bbq pork was moist, with a sweet and savory kick. They also drizzled the rice with a black sauce that tasted of Chinese all spice and soy...more
