Very useful blog - maybe you could ask James for a link from the review section. You've reminded me to go to Dragon Castle again - excellent restaurant but due to its location, you do need to be reminded from time to time. For some reason, I started thinking of Bleeding Heart before getting to it on your blog - probably due to the EC1 sandwich bar and getting my head into Clerkenwell mode, where we used to live - and was pleased to see it there. Cicada is also another EC1 favourite.
Eileen: The last time I went there were four of us - and I didn't pay - but I'd estimate two could eat very happily with wine for £30ish. Does this sound accurate, others who've been recently?
Of course, as with all Chinese places, it depends how many courses you have etc, and whether you got menu fright like I do and order everything in sight.
Emma: glad I've jogged the memory on Dragon Castle! There's some great places in Clerkenwell: I work up that way so that tends to be my other orbit. St John is a favourite, but haven't been there for a while: good lunch spot in the winter, though.
I haven't tried Arancia, but the website looks good (expect the hideous wine glasses - although I'm increasingly aware I'm the only one with this particular hangup) so I'll have to check it out.
