In this new feature we ask why good and simple Chinese things that should be available in London are not available in London.
1. 烤红薯 Baked Sweet Potato
Sold by a man, on a street corner, by weight, from a steaming barrell, this delicious treat requires no additions and can definately keep you filled up til tea. Selling for about 50p on dusty roadsides in cities Chinawide, I see no reason why these should not be a common sight on London’s streets throughout the 2011/12 winter. RRP £2.
