41 Kingsland High Street
E8 2JS

Rain ruined our day trip plans with F&C so we ended up doing a little tour of East London instead. We went to a vintage jumble sale at The Victoria, then ambled along Columbia Road and saw the flower market, and ended up at Shanghai for their happy hour dim sum (most dishes are 1.90 between 3pm and 5pm on Saturday and Sunday). Long list of dishes: har gau (steamed prawn dumplings), steamed pork dumplings, char siu buns, spare ribs in black bean sauce, chicken feet in black bean sauce, pan-fried turnip paste (pictured above), roast duck congee, chicken and chinese sausage rice pot, prawn and chive cheung fun, BBQ pork cheung fun. Most of it was quite good - I'd skip the spare ribs next time though as they weren't as good as the rest of the dishes. All this plus tea for four and service came to 28.50, which I think is a pretty awesome deal for a dim sum feast.
