I can't believe I had never thought of eating at the Mandarin of all the times we were in Knightsbridge. I'm so glad I decided to give it a try because its a perfect lunch spot and a good break from the crazy shopping!
£23. Eating at any fast food joint would easily cost more than that. To start there were 3 choices and from the salad and pork head cheese terrine I picked butternut soup. With pumpkin seeds, caraway marshmallow, pain d' epices, it was probably the best butternut soup I had had.
