My First Trip of 2012 to London.. Part II


London, United Kingdom

I am going to rave about this Chinese restaurant that we visited on our second day in London. I really appreciate it when I can have authentic Asian food in European countries.  I do not believe in the combination of eastern and western way of cooking because most of the time, they serve you crappy food that taste really weird.

Roast Meat
Steamed Eggs
I love to have my table full of food! 🙂

I am really touched to have such great and delicious Chinese cuisine and even more so to have my food served pipping hot in this chilling weather.

Here is the restaurant’s details:

Gold Mine Restaurant
02 Queensway
London
W2 3RR.

You can alight at Bayswater Station and is within walking distance to the restaurant from the station. The total bill comes up to about 84 pounds for the 7 of us which is only 12 pounds per person. An affordable and very satisfactory meal! Two thumbs up! 🙂

After our lunch, a few of us went to visit the Sherlock Holmes Museum.

Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson lived at 221b Baker Street and here we are in the house at the real address. You can alight at Baker Street station and it is approximately 5 minutes walk to the museum. Admission is 6 pounds per person.

If you’re wondering if Sherlock Holmes was a real person, he was a fictional detective created by the author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I will wish that Sherlock Holmes was a real person cos he was a brilliant genius in the story!

Here are the photos of the interior of the house..

The souvenir store was right beside the museum and here are some of the photos that I took.

And as we walked out of the museum, we saw the London Bus with the advertisement on the movie Sherlock Holmes! Wow! How coincidental!

The movie advertisement poster is also found in the tube station!

Have you catch the second installment of Sherlock Holmes yet? I hope I could catch it soon. 🙂
