Tai Ka Lok

18 Gerrard Street

J and I were going to see a movie in the Chinatown area so decided to eat dinner there. Tai Ka Lok had come recommended by another blogger so we gave it a try. Prices are very reasonable - around 5 quid for the roast duck and crispy pork over rice, and 6 quid for the Chinese mushrooms with seasonal vegetables. However, you really get what you pay for - the duck had very little meat on it and was incredibly fatty, and 'seasonal vegetables' meant napa cabbage and carrots. While it all tasted fine and the crispy pork had very crispy skin indeed, I think I'd actually be ok with paying a bit more to get better quality dishes. Still, there are a lot more places to try in Chinatown so onwards ho!
