I appreciate that this may just look like a shiny mess of yellow and green things, but I found it quite exciting as it’s the first time outside of China that I’ve had an authentic version of one of my favourite dishes.
It’s called ‘North East people three fresh vegetables of the earth’, or dong bei ren di san xian – potato, aubergine (eggplant to all non-English speakers), and bell peppers, covered in a dark gravy-like sauce. Sounds lovely eh?
Eaten at My Old Place near Liverpool Street, which was like stepping into a canteen in China. Their egg and chive dumplings were also very good.
