Chinatown的美麗陷阱?

思鄉病。叻的英國留學生,不一定會有homesickness,因為適應力強,好快群到鬼仔玩。不過就算留學生幾有grit,一提起香港美食,叉飯、雲吞河、譚仔、西多、媽咪靚湯,留學生都難免心有戚戚然,想喊出嚟。

 

三五香港同學群埋一齊時,總會喜歡傾下大家在香港時的生活。往往在這時候就有個講起香港美食,其他人就會附和說「不如weekend去London Chinatown食野吖!」

 

有去過Chinatown搵食的你,都會明白走過大街小巷,總會見到一些好Tempting的名字,但原來都是「標題黨」:小洪樓(英文叫Little Hong Kong)、九龍酒樓、新龍鳳大酒樓、喜洋洋中餐館之類的lame爆名字。

然後就出事了。十一二鎊一位的all you can eat自助餐,配上每家「中菜館」都有的sweet and sour pork,spring row,炸冬菇,雞翼等九唔撘八的中菜,都是Chinatown中菜館的常見畫面。然後你探頭看看四周的食客,十居其九都是食得津津有味的鬼佬,你會慨嘆,又啱嘅,幾奇怪都好過餐餐食麵包薯仔……

還未夠說服你嗎?上一上Trip Advisor,睇睇Chinatown的餐廳review。你就知道,所謂的「香港餐廳」,只是掛香港的名字來氹遊客落撘的tourist spot。

 

不緊要,你還有文興嘛!對的,之前提過的文興,撇開是不是正宗香港風味不說,味道卻是最好。皮脆肉嫩的烤鴨連我這位小欖仔都爲之瘋狂,螞蟻上樹爽口香辣,配飯一流。飲飽食醉,盛惠九十鎊。唔貴!香港味道嘛,唔貴,唔貴……

如果你像我一樣,經濟上無法餐餐去文興,食到御用飯堂咁,那麼Chinatown的港式士多仔就是留學生的聖地。各式各樣的合味道、出前一丁、熊仔餅、李錦記,仲有仲有……各位觀眾!熱!浪!

 

最感動的,是價錢合理,杯麵都是七、八十pence一杯。不過,這種true Hong Kong taste,就算五鎊你都會捨得買。而每次見到合味道,我都一定會買多幾杯,送俾食神George,話佢知,傳承香港飲食界的驕傲。

我明白,我真係明。就算Chinatown中菜幾有伏味,自助餐幾九唔撘八,我間中都會幫襯。不是為了食餐好的,只是每次食完,都總會再次懷念香港有幾好。或者,Chinatown就是我們這種番書仔最好的美沙酮。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
