I regularly get invitations to new restaurants opening so I can write about them for my blog, some I go to and some I don’t. It all depends on if I have time or if the theme of the restaurant meets the story of my blog. However, last week being invited to a new restaurant of ‘Lab Grown Meat‘ piqued my interest. I mean, Vegetarian friendly re-newable meat.
Readers will know how much I love the food and culture from my native Northern Ireland and also how I often travel to China to present TV and launch food products for Great British and Northern Irish brands in China. What a surprise when I stumbled upon a Northern Irish restaurant in China. A Home from home, I was even greeted at the door in my mother tongue of Ulster Scots with a big smile by Eddie the Chinese owner who lives in Belfast now saying in broad Belfast tone ‘bout ya’, slightly different to the ‘Ni Hao’ I have been greeted with the past 10 days. Welcome to the land of BT8 in Shenzhen, just above Hong Kong.
