night we hit up the Courthouse by Doubletree for the annual Tsingtao Legacy of Taste competition to find Britain’s favourite Chinese restaurant. This year the competition was feirce with three very different restaurants in the running. Two of the three finalists were from London including newcomer Grand Imperial and Michelin star Kai Mayfair, the third finalist was two time winner Yang Sing from Manchester.

The winner is selected after a judging panel lead by Ching-He Huang visits each of the restaurants and marks them on various aspects including food, atmosphere, decor etc. Last nights winner was the brilliant Kai Mayfair and although we haven’t been there yet from the look of the food we’ll certainly be giving it a go.

We also got to try the new Tsingtao 1903 beer which is pretty good stuff – not available in the UK yet but watch this space!
