The Year of the Rooster at Yauatcha

Every year, around Lunar New Year, I get a little sentimental. It’s the one holiday my family used to celebrate enthusiastically. My mum would decorate the house in red, we’d prepare traditional dishes for the day and a stop by the local pagoda was a must as well. It’s a shame I’m not able to celebrate this special time with my family, but I’m happy I was still able to have Lunar New Year food again at Yauatcha City together with Emma (bloomzy). I had such a great time last year, so I was looking forward to our celebratory lunch.

Liberty Cheesesteak Factory Review

Liberty Cheesesteak Factory* | Sandwich Shop/Fast Food | Website Menu | 6 Lamb Street, E1 6EA London What’s cheesesteak? I like a good hearty and warm sandwich, especially when it’s oozing with cheese. So shame on me for not knowing cheesesteak beyond Subway’s offering. Cheesesteaks sandwiches are made from thinly sliced pieces of beefsteak, melted cheese and optional onions in a long hoagie roll. Though, it seems like it’s not been really a big thing in London yet, so I was more than interested when Liberty Cheesesteak Factory invited me to try out their cheesesteaks.
