Yú hé shǔ tiáo
Funny item on BBC news this evening about a chippy in Brighton. Over the last two years The Regency Restaurant on the seafront has seen ever increasing numbers of Chinese diners. The confused yet grateful Cypriot owners, Robert & Emilio Savvides, set about trying to find out the reason for this upsurge of interest. Apparently, someone posted a favourable review on Renren (Chinese facebook), with the result that the Regency is on everyone's travel itinerary. Not sure if they do sea cucumber or hairy crab though.
