Here's three of the works, go down to see them all you won't regret it!

So if you dare to try a more authentic Chinese cuisine, head to Baozi Inn, specialising in Sichuan and Beijing streetfood, its a fast food delight! Baozi - from the chinese word for bun - is a steamed bun like dumpling, filled with either ground pork or vegetables and at a measly £1.40 for two its a perfect way to start. <a href="http://holidayclubrecordings.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/21.jpg"><img src="http://holidayclubrecordings.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/21-e1288650307649.jpg" alt="" title="2" width="574" height="382" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-70" /></a> Cold spinach in ginger and orange juice is amazingly refreshing even if it doesn't instantly attract. <a href="http://holidayclubrecordings.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/3.jpg"><img src="http://holidayclubrecordings.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/3-e1288650338253.jpg" alt="" title="3" width="574" height="382" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-71" /></a> Dragon wontons in chilli oil and garlic sauce: <a href="http://holidayclubrecordings.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/4.jpg"><img src="http://holidayclubrecordings.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/4-e1288650371348.jpg" alt="" title="4" width="574" height="430" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-72" /></a> Tender pork rib noodle soup served with pak choi: <a href="http://holidayclubrecordings.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/51.jpg"><img src="http://holidayclubrecordings.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/51-e1288650440912.jpg" alt="" title="5" width="574" height="382" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-74" /></a> Fragrant hot &amp; spicy pork noodles: <a href="http://holidayclubrecordings.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/6.jpg"><img src="http://holidayclubrecordings.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/6-e1288650479242.jpg" alt="" title="6" width="574" height="382" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-75" /></a> Baozi Inn has a great amount of charm; from its red hanging lanterns, dried sichuan chilly adorned walls and dark wooden tables to the great atmosphere generated by the intimate setting and young chinese populating it. <a href="http://holidayclubrecordings.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/7.jpg"><img src="http://holidayclubrecordings.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/7-e1288650517580.jpg" alt="" title="7" width="574" height="485" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-76" /></a> Don't expect the greatest service - a poke in the arm was administered to indicate i should order - but when you take into consideration that a two course meal for two with chinese tea costs a mere £20 your in for a treat. Take cash as they don't accept card. 25 Newport Court, Chinatown, London, WC2H 7JS</p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tag field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/blog-tags/travelvisit" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel">Travel/Visit</a></div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-date field-type-datetime field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><span class="date-display-single" property="dc:date" datatype="xsd:dateTime" content="2010-11-11T10:15:00+00:00">Thursday, November 11, 2010 - 10:15</span></div></div></div> Mon, 01 Nov 2010 10:16:22 +0000 holidayclub 12 at http://holidayclubrecordings.co.uk http://holidayclubrecordings.co.uk/post/baozi-inn#comments
