London: Leung's Legend - no please no!

Visited at the end of June.

Oyster pancake - what a joke. I've had this countless times growing up in Taiwan and at least 5 times when visiting Taipei last year. This was not supposed to be: a) lack of gooey cornstarch, b) lack of small white napa cabbage, c) containing satay sauce. It was supposed to come with a red sweet and hot sauce, it did not.

Shu mai - not sure what the obsession with satay sauce was, but this was the first I've had it sprinkled on shu mai. Just tasted fatty.

Beef noodle soup - the noodles lacked texture, just mushy. There was a lot of beef FAT, which was not welcomed. The soup had some flavor but was salty.

We were ordering a few items to start, but after these we decided to stop ordering.

Don't get your hopes up for decent Taiwanese food, sorry to say.
