Well, we're now officially on our way to Singapore, but not without a quick pit-stop for refuelling purposes in London. We managed to hunt down Covent Garden's best coffee and largest Brigadeiro at the cinnamon-inspired Portuguese/Brazilian cafe 'Canella' and tried a bit of Hong-Kong Pho-ey at the all-time favourite 'Wong-Kei's' just off Gerrard St. All the usual suspects were present: deep-fried crispy seaweed, a quarter spicy Peking-duck, crisp chilli beef and Szechuan praws. But wait for it, there's a new Vietnamese soup and noodle bar opened in Frith St called NAM. And in anticipation of our visit to Hanoi, we went for a massive bowl of Pho. Yes, pho (pronounced 'fir')which is a sensational noodle soup.
So the cullinary journey is already begun!
