I aways love catching a glimpse on the telly 😉 of New Scotland Yard (const. 1886–1906) where I worked in 1993; it had been repurposed as Parliamentary offices in 1967 and renamed as the Norman Shaw Buildings. The stone used on the facade was quarried by convicts in Devon. New Scotland Yard proper is now a non-description office building nearby.

Shanghai-style food in NYC #Chinatown. Tiny steamed soup #dumplings with crab & pork; Kau Fu (a.k.a. kao fu), which is a type of braised wheat gluten served cold and with a sweet sauce (it was magnificent!); glass noodles and bean curd puffs in soup broth with onions; "lion head" meat ball #casserole (the pork meat ball is capped by a dark mushroom head and the arrangement is vaguely reminiscent of a lion's head complete with its mane). #chinatownnyc #MottStreet #foodporn #chinesefood #chinesecuisine #steameddumplings #soupdumplings #NYC #icapture_nyc Kel asked the waiter for bowls for us—"Westerners use plates." ☺️
