Beijing---Best Xinjiang food in Beijing?

Thanks, I was curious whether there was an update

Beijing---Best Xinjiang food in Beijing?

Hey, I'm looking for an authentic Xinjiang (新疆) restaurant in Beijing. Does anyone know of the best places to go? The best things to try?

Tarte au chocolat in central London---anyone know a decent place?

Well, a report on my progress so far:

The one mentionable place is Paul Rhodes in Notting Hill.
http://www.rhodesbakery.co.uk/

The tarte au chocolat's chocolate was superb, the tarte itself a bit too hard---it's possible it was in the display case for some time, or perhaps that's the batter they're using for tart crusts. So a positive review, though it could be better.

They're flourless chocolate cake though is to die for...

What to eat with bangers/ bramley apple bangers? [moved from UK/Ireland]

Well, I've tried a few of your suggestions with bangers and bramley apple bangers:

I get it now. Bangers and mash with a large helping of beef and onion gravy is superb. Divine, some may say (with a pint or two). I haven't explicitly sauteed onions to eat with said bangers and gravy, but that feels like a great combination, particularly with the bramley apple bangers. I had them with Yorkshire pudding...if that's not "traditional" it should be...

Now, don't laugh, but I previously just assumed that bangers would go well with Dijon mustard (meh...) or maple syrup (unlike other pork sausages, mine were simply not salty enough). HP sauce is certainly a no-no.

I'm not convinced (yet) that cutting them up and putting them in pasta is such a hot idea; surely one would rather use a sausage with more spice (as opposed to sublime porkiness). This is regards to pasta with any sort of tomato-based sauce (e.g. general marinara). Bangers should work well with a big of parmesan (I must try the gnocchi recipe!).

Any great recipes for bubble-and-squeak and champ?

What to eat with bangers/ bramley apple bangers? [moved from UK/Ireland]

Hi. Just moved to the UK, and purchased bangers at Tescos, a pack of original British bangers and a pack of bramley apple bangers.

Question: What do you eat with bangers? HOW do you eat bangers?

I mean, my first impulse would be to fry the bangers and eat them with mustard. But bramley apple bangers? Should I eat them with, I don't know, maple syrup?

What should I make with bangers? (Mash, I know, I know...but the issue is, solely bangers with mash sounds awfully boring...)

So, requests for any side-dishes or any other sauces (types of gravy? HP sauce?)
