Food House is a comfortable Sichuan restaurant on the corner of Gerrard Street, serving chewy noodles, hot pots and, most importantly, a portion of 30 dumplings for under £20. That last point is an important one. Because, 30 dumplings. And also because they’re tasty boiled pork dumplings that - combined with a friend or two, some chilli oil lamb belt noodles, and an undying commitment to eating 30 of anything - make for a deliciously good value meal.
