26/6/2013, off to Nottingham we went…
We visited University of Nottingham and had some ice cream there from Mr. Whippy ice cream van. The soft serve ice cream was not bad, smooth and milky. Don’t remember how much was it.
The signature tower of University of Nottingham.
Next, we went to see the statue of Robin Hood.
Then we went to have lunch at China House (154 Alfreton Road, Radford, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, NG7 3NS).
Left: Rice for 6 people with unlimited refill. No idea how much for per person.
Right: We were given with Chinese menu instead of English so I’ll try to translate the dish’s name into English *LOL* Stir Fry Green Bean with Dried Chili (Â£8.80).
Left: Steamed Pork Belly with Mustard Greens (Â£12).
Right: Gosh! I don’t remember what’s this. There’s century egg, white cabbage, and luncheon meat.
Left: Salted egg with tofu (Â£8.80). My favourite of all!
Overall the food was above average, portion was great and prices were reasonable, we ordered a bit too much for 6 people. Not a bad place to go.
Done with Nottingham, we drove to York.
Basically we walked around York.
Left:Since it’s already evening, shops are closing. However, the Haunted Walk of York would start soon. Interesting… Didn’t join, no time for it and not with the right travel partners.
Right: Pork! Lots of them! Didn’t try any because we had too much leftover from Cambridge to clear.
Bettys CafÃ© Tea Rooms (6-8 St Helens Square York YO1 8QP, United Kingdom) in York. So many people! Had to queue and we didn’t have the luxury of time for it as we need to go on another 1 1/2 hours drive to go to our final stop of the day, my sis’ place, before the sun went down.
Goodbye York! That’s the end of the trip for the day.
