Chinese Desserts in Norwich

When I first moved back to Norwich after a long stint in London as a chef, I have to admit I was less than happy about the food choices in Norwich. The only place to find sushi rice was Waitrose, there were no Okobassi restaurants, no Vietnamese, no Dim Sum and certainly no Bibimbap! So …
