BAYSWATER | W2
There is something very gratifying about a Chinese meal, and Gold Mine in Bayswater is known throughout London as one of the best places to go for a Cantonese-style roast meat fix.
They are particularly well known for their roast duck. Soft, sweet and succulent, you can get a portion on a bed of steamed rice, along with their salty sweet hoisin sauce, for £7.50.
The fragrant meat was delightful and rice fluffy, soaking up the juices from the duck to create a heavenly plate. You could also go for half a duck for £10.50, plus a couple of rice bowls at £2.50 each, and share between two.
The waiters can be pushy, focussing on getting as many people in and out as possible. But forgive the small failings in service in favour of a delicious and authentic Cantonese meal.
