At last!

After much wandering around, I finally found some of the food I was looking for. I have been living here for over a 6 years and I have searched in vain for something apart from standard Malaysian and Chinese food. Well last night I found the answer to the Chinese food puzzle. It is a bit embarrassing. I found it in Hurstville. I have visited the place so many times over the last 20 years. Yet I never visited the shopping center and never found these eating places. I found a restaurant that specialised in Shang Hai cuisine. Not that I was specifically looking for that, but now I know where to look. The mistake was not to look in these suburban locations. I found this one on my mobile phone. It was just like eating in Shang Hai, as I did only in the last month. And the owner was happy with our orders and how much we liked the food. At last!

Keat and I had jelly fish salad and duck on hot rocks. It was excellent. The menu must have had over 100 items. So it will take a while to get through it all. And I do need to find a Hakka restaurant.

The place is the Shang Hai YangZhou restaurant.

Unfortunately I did not think to take the photo until after we were finished and I did not have my proper camera.
