It's time for a yum cha post.
'Why start with little known Hong Kong Cuisine?' You may ask.
Well, no particular reason, but as always I will save the best for later. You get the picture.
Shopfront in 'Little Africa', Moorooka
Before you wonder what is a Chinese restaurant doing in 'Little Africa', you should know there is at least one Chinese restaurant (proper one not takeaway) in every suburb or our neighbourhood.
HK Cuisine interior
Thick garish red carpet, fish tank (but this time it's for pets not dish), tacky chairs with Chinese New Year greetings *weird*.
The air-cond was just switched-on when we enter. We sat through a 'sticky' dim sum meal.
Worst first-time dining scenario.
We were there because of their ad in the local free newspapers. They claimed they do dim sum wholesale to restaurants around the city.
I feel sorry for the patrons of those restaurants they 'wholesale' to.
Okay, moving on, Landmark was the first restaurant we chose to have our first dim sum meal in Brisbane.
Reason? There's always lots of people cluster around the entrance waiting to be seated. When there's queue, restaurant will give out numbers to control the queue. So no 'I cut queue so what, I am thick skin enough, who dare to stop me' scenarios can happen like back home.
Yes, it has happened to me in Lucky or Phongmun lots of time. In these old-school places, only the 'sharpest eyes' and the 'fastest sprint' win.
Mediocre fare but I can understand why it is popular. With a location like Sunnybank Plaza with ample parking, it has its advantages.
