A very special lunch @ The Wilderness

Bloggers Banquet @ Chung Ying Garden 


Events, restaurants

I have a confession: before the Blogger Banquet event recently I hadn’t actually eaten at Chung Ying Garden.  I’ve walked past it a million times over the years as I’ve trundled through China Town, (usually on my way to Nightingales after too many adult lemonades) but had never made it through the bright red doors.
