Shuang Shuang

This Chinatown restaurant specialises in hot-pots, with boiling broth pots sunk into tables and the ingredients to throw in snaking around you on conveyor belts.

"I’m told a literal translation of Shuang Shuang is “feeling good with a little bit of oh yeah”. Whereas I’m left feeling baffled with a little bit of “Oh my!” and “Oh dear”." READ REVIEW
