HOT: Pearl Liang 8 Sheldon Square Paddington
It's a luxury to have yum cha available 2 minutes from my house. This undergound restaurant is decorated in dark purple and cherry blossoms and was comfortably full with a half Asian, half Western clientele. The wasabi prawn dumplings were great, as was the sponge cake with custard, but generally it fell short of Royal China's standards on some other dishes, including the egg tarts. A bargin at £11 each but I think I'd rather walk the extra 10 minutes to go to Royal China in future. I might try them for dinner another time.
