As a new expat on a tight budget, I find Time Out London's list of 'Cheap Eats' to be a godsend. I read about Yum Cha Silks & Spices, a cheap and cheerful Chinese restaurant which offers 50% off dim sums from Monday to Wednesday nights. It is close to the Stables Market in Camden (closest tube is Camden Town) and offers a wide range of Chinese dishes.
We didn't even bother looking at the regular menu - we were there to eat half price dim sums! We ordered exclusively from the dim sum menu.
Here are the pics of what we had - descriptions as they appeared in the menu and prices pre-discount
I have noticed that eating out casually in London can get quite pricey, especially when compared to eating out in Sydney. I would be happy to come back to Yum Cha Silks & Spices! (on a Mon-Wed night during the half price deal)
