All I can think about at the moment is dim sum, which makes it even more irritating that much lunch is a sodding "Innocent Vegetable Pot". I have spent the morning being envious at Ken's trip to Tim Ho Wan (here are someone elses photos), but a lot closer to home is Penninsula, by the Holiday Inn in North Greenwich. (Whenever I think of a Holiday Inn, I start singing "Holiday Hymn" by Vic Godard, which I constantly mis-sing as "Holiday Inn" which is amusing if you like that sort of thing). I have never been, but gosh they have lots of dim sum. I think I should eat it all, or alternatively, get married there as they appear to have some offers on. If you book 20 tables they throw in a wedding dress, karaoke and a suckling pig, marvellous. Anyway, back to the dim sums, and Kake, here you go:

They say: "The traditional accompaniment to all this food is Chinese Tea; we offer a selection of different leaves, with dark, intriguingly musty Bo-Lay, a flavourite alternative to the ubiquitous Jasmine and Shei Sin."

Suspect intriguingly musty = we found it down the back of the sofa, watch out for mothballs. Yummy!
