These are a few pictures taken while wandering around London’s Chinatown area, and the first one is my new favorite snack, TaiYaki. We first ran into this snack while hanging out in Second Life, but had never seen it in RL until we found a little bakery in London’s Chinatown that seemed to be making 70% of its sales from fish waffles. Most times of day they had a line the length of the store queuing up to buy them.
They may look like fish, but they taste like lightly sweetened Belgium Waffles (the real ones that you can buy from the street vendors in Brussels) with just a dab of creamy custard in the center.
I think of Tori’s as the gateway into an area, but the one in London’s Chinatown is a good two blocks in.
I never did find out exactly why this representation of the Monkey King was hanging out on this building, but I found it interesting so I am including it here.
