New Mayflower - Chinatown, London

I've been trawling through Flickr and came across these photos from a meal I had yonks ago at Mayflower in Chinatown that I never got round to posting. Mayflower is still one of those old favourite's that is so worth visiting for a good Chinese (Cantonese) meal.

Vegetables for a Crispy Aromatic Duck Pancake Wrap - Mayflower, London

Stuart's 'must' dish' - Crispy Aromatic Duck with pancakes, spring onion, cucumber and hoisin sauce

Braised Belly Pork with Preserved Vegetable - Mayflower, London

My 'must dish' at Mayflower - Mui Choy Kau Yoke (braised pork belly with salted preserved mustard green). A hearty Hakka dish that is lusciously beautiful in every way. More Chinese restaurants should put this on their menus.

Sweet and Sour Pork - Mayflower, London

Sweet and Sour Pork - one of the best versions I've had in London with the pork encased a crisp batter enhanced with the addition of cornflour, just like they do it in Hong Kong

This is not a good post to read in the middle of the afternoon whilst stuck in the office with no food to eat!

I'm now starving and majorly craving ALL the dishes you photographed!!
