[Brisbane] Landmark Restaurant, Sunnybank

Sunnybank Plaza
Shop 101
Mains Rd
Sunnybank 4109 QLD

Dinner with Big King's colleagues at Landmark Chinese Restaurant at Sunnybank Plaza Shopping Centre.

Do not be put off by Chinese joint located in a suburb's shopping centre. This place is very popular with the locals with queues forming even on a weekday.

This place serves yum cha and lunch and dinner. Though I must say it's not my favourite place for yum cha even with the novelty of trolley carts.

We had the mudcrab/lobster set menu for six persons. Lobster was chosen for ease of consumption.

I have never had pickled olive leaves before but they tasted nice with the fish.

The above were default dishes for the set menu for 4 persons. For 6 persons, you get to choose two more dishes from a choice of eight (bottom menu pic). If you can't read Chinese but want to order from the menu, do ask the wait staff to explain.

We chose to have clams and pork.

I like this dish the best, the clams were sweet and plump and the vermicelli was very tasty as they had soaked up the sweet juices of the clam.

Pork ribs in OK sauce@Landmark

Now I haven't a clue what this OK sauce is, it tasted sweet and savoury. Scattered round the plate was some canned fruits. Weird.

The meal ended with a fruit plate (watermelon soaked in syrup) and a sweet soup (sweet barley soup with eggs). I find the idea of eggs in sweet soup off-putting.

Hi, arranging a birthday lunch, the group suggested yum cha so thought of Landmark. Is it in the main Plaza or on the outside?
Any clues appreciated!
