I first discovered Kowloon Restaurant, smack in the middle of London Chinatown, because I was drawn to it on impulse; who can resist that dazzling array of Cantonese pastries and buns displayed in the shop window of this massive restaurant cum bakery?
I brought Judith here for a quick snack during the Winter break when she first arrived in London.
These crispy custard buns (just £1.00 each) are best served piping hot from the oven; break them apart and savour the taste of the sweet, warm custard enveloped in a crispy pastry skin – melts in your mouth! Be warned; a single bun is massive, so have plenty of friends to share the goodness with you!
