Delicious Guotie 锅贴 from London Chinatown on 8Jun2017

cooked guotie 锅贴

we all like the frozen guotie锅贴 iin london. somehow they seem much more delicious than the CP brand i get from singapore sheng shiong.

we don’t bother to eat much in singapore but in london, this very useful to have.

 

frozen guotie锅贴 from chinatown

so after our excellent £29 3-course express lunch at l’atelier joel robuchon, we walked over to chinatown.

wife bought a packet each of the frozen pork & chicken dumplings (guotie 锅贴).

cooked guotie锅贴

so this evening in addition to enjoying the really nice four seasons roast duck, i made some guotie 锅贴.

this very easy to do-

just take out the frozen guotie 锅贴. put some on a non-stick pan. add oil AND water. turn stove to high heat & cover.

so as the water evaporates, it cooks the guotie. after water evaporated, the oil browned the guotie 锅贴 to produce very delicious crispy guotie 锅贴, with the tasty broth still inside the dumpling!

simple & truly super treat!

Best Ever & Best Value £29 3-Course Lunch @ L’Atelier De Joel Robuchon on 8Jun2017

beef medium rare – main course 

l’atelier joel robuchon at covent garden is serving a £29 3-course express lunch.

i was here last month when traveling london/wales with my 2 RI bros and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

it was supposedly 45mins express lunch, and hence you have to prebook & pre-select each course online, rather than choosing from the menu at the restaurant.

chefs at l’atelier joel robuchon 

wife had been here several times on previous occasions but not for this express lunch, so we booked this lunch here today on 8.6.2017. ^^

l’atelier joel robuchon 

i booked the entire restaurant!

sad that they are serving these fabulous food & even with this £29 promotion, there are very few patrons…must be making lots of money elsewhere?

only 2 other customers came during the entire lunch!

chefs at l’atelier joel robuchon 

the atelier (workshop) concept is you can see the chefs preparing your meal. more interactive? not really…maybe participative?

beef medium rare – main course

it was not the best cut of beef (very decent already for this price), so it’s not in the prime portico or top steak restaurant category…but it was ery good class for this beef cut.
