Lunch at Burwood


We had lunch at the ' All people Chinese restaurant ' at Burwood, a suburb not far from the city. It was indeed a very sumptuous meal and I must say  that the lobsters we had were value for money.  We discovered later that they cost  very much less than what was being offered at the restaurants in the city's Chinatown.


Ginger and spring onions lobster noodles.





We enjoyed the lobster noodles so much that we indulged ourselves and ordered another one.
A dry version ..... Salt and pepper lobster, at their recommendation.





Roast duck which had a crunchy skin, soft and tender meat... very tasty!


Pea sprouts fried with garlic.


Pei Pa bean curd served with Broccoli.

We left the restaurant with a full belly wholly satisfied!

Today, being the last day of 2010, I take the opportunity to wish


All my readers and friends, far and near,
A very Happy, Peaceful, Harmonious and Stress-free
New Year!

  1. Oh you are in Melbourne. We must catch up if you have time before going back to Melbourne. Great Chinese meals are better in the suburbs these days, Chinatown has definitely lost it's shine.

    Yes, all of us enjoyed the lobsters. We had another lobster meal, not as good and more pricey.

Assam Prawns ~ 亚参虾

Assam Prawns is a popular Malaysian dish which is not difficult to whip up.  The two main ingredients in this dish are the prawns and tamarind paste or what we call, 'assam'.  Tamarind does pair well with seafood, they complement each other and prawns cooked in this way is incredibly delicious and appetising.  Yum is the word for it!

Cherry Loaf Cake ~ 樱桃蛋糕

I baked this old-fashioned Cherry Loaf using the Marble Butter cake recipe but adjusted the recipe as I only used three eggs instead of four to fit into the loaf pan.   I remember that when I was little, I was attracted by the red cherries as any other kid and would gingerly take them out and eat them first.    The cake was secondary.  This cake is soft and moist infused with the sweet glace cherries giving it a lovely combination of flavours.
