Rasa Sayang is a great Malaysian-Singaporean restaurant in the heart of Chinatown--we loved it and ate there twice.
They had all the traditional food including chicken rice, roti canai
(with curry on the side) and char kuay teow
We also tried Wagamama, a Japanese noodle house
The grilled fish lunch at John Lewis, a local department store, was especially memorable and a welcome oasis amidst the shopping at Oxford Circus
And of course, I was most excited about London because of tea time. Scones and pastries galore were provided for us at the Le Meridien club lounge each day from 2-5pm. B started to get suspicious when I'd suddenly have to go back to the hotel during those hours.
I did try to eat my weight in pastries and found a new favorite--raisin au pain. This version has some sort of custard in between the layers to keep everything moist and extra delicious. I would trade one slightly naughty puppy dog in exchange for a raisin au pain right now!
