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.

Peach Resin Snow Fungus Dessert ~ 桃胶雪耳糖水

The scientific name for Peach resin is Prunus Persica which is resin secreted from the Peach tree and form like crystals which are stuck to the tree.  Originated from China, the composition of peach resin is collagen, amino acids.  The rich collagen helps to improve the complexion, nourishes and helps to prevent dryness of the skin.  It also helps to improve bowel movement.  In short, this is an inexpensive substitute to the highly expensive birds nest.

Kaya Slice ~ 咖椰片

I've tasted vanilla slice before but not Kaya Slice.  My first taste of Kaya Slice was at a fusion cafe in Perth and the combination was truly wonderful.  So when I returned from my vacation, I just had to give it a try with my homemade kaya and believe me, it's real yummy especially if you are a kaya fan.  Serve this as a dessert to jazz up your reunion dinner during this coming Chinese New Year!
