HOT: Baozi Inn, 25 Newport Ct, Soho WC2H 7JS
This cheap and rapid-fire resto serves spicy Sichuan and Chengdu dishes in dark wooden surroundings and to the soundtrack of cheery proletariat warbling. Huy and I were closeted in a teeny corner table and chowed down on some naughty carbs - large egg and pork baozi (steamed buns), dragon pork dumplings with chilli and garlic sauce, dan dan noodles and a spicy beef noodle soup. All that food, plus two soya bean milks, was £21.40.
