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.

Chocolate chip banana bread ~ 香蕉巧克力蛋糕

This is an easy peasy recipe where no mixer is required.  Method is more or less like making muffins.  The texture of this banana loaf is soft, moist and there is a perfect blend between the aromatic bananas and chocolate chips.

Topo Map Cake ~ 地图蛋糕

I think it is more appropriate to name this cake just as 'Topo map cake' for the layers in this cake really look like a map.  Layering this cake can be quite challenging as a great deal of patience is required.  But patience and endurance do pay and after the cake is baked and once you sliced it up, you'll be so pleased to see the pretty layers and the colour combination.  Not only does it look awesome, the texture is good too, soft and moist.
