The Gold Mine’s plain frontage & sparse, white-walled dining room suggest that it’s a quick-fix refuelling stop rather than a place to linger. The menu touts a bewildering array of dishes, but
most people are here to sample the Cantonese roast meats – especially the lacquered ducks that can be seen hanging in the window. Chopped up & piled on to plates of steamed rice, these gamey,
deliciously fatty birds are immensely popular with the Chinese crowd who frequent this garishly lit eatery. If you’re in the mood for something more esoteric, try braised chicken with pig’s liver
& Chinese sausage or go for the chilli kick of sizzling aubergine with minced pork. Service can be brusque, so don’t be afraid to wave your arms around to attract the waiters’ attention.
Whenever there’s a family occasion of sorts, whether it’s Chinese New Year, a birthday, an anniversary or even because someone suggested a catch up, food is always involved. Essentially any hint of a reason to eat. One of my family’s restaurants of choice is Goldmine in Bayswater. Away from the sometimes arguably westernised Chinatown, Bayswater offers a hub of chinese restaurants serving traditional chinese food. Whenever we’re here, we always go to Royal China for dim sum or Goldmine for dinner.
