Light beefy soup with springy hand pulled noodle. Slow braised beef shank cut into thin sliced required no jaw exercise. However their soup had too much MSG for comfort. .
.
I would recommend their dumpling inside. Packed with meat and the crisp green casted away any heaviness. For $5 each, I found it very value for money.

Nice silky congee packed with flavors and ready detailed prepared ingredients. The liver was cut in just the right thickness which gave it a “crisp” texture. No foul smell from any of the ingredients. Initially I found it a little under-seasoned but as I get into the bottom of the bowl, the taste was just right. Every hint of sweet was felt. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 .

100 over years old cafe operated with perfection (with WiFi). The beef melt was awesome but their vanilla puff was their signature. Their bakery still baked their puff pastry with their 120 years old wood oven without thermostat. Everything was done by experience. The vanilla was light as air and well balanced. Highly recommend!!!

Famous for their fish and chips and daily catch. The place had only less 6 table with 15 seats. .

Their pizza was surprisingly good. Thin crisp with flavorful sauce. I love the combination of sauce meat and mushroom. .
.
But for the fish... look good on the outside but undercook in the inside. The fried fish has a good crust but lacking in taste. So overall speaking, I would recommend their Italian food instead.

Excellent view but the service was somewhat missing. .
.
The mains were beautifully plated. Everything was well balanced but not outstanding. However, the view made up for everything. .

I highly recommend to try their dessert. Scenic and tasted good too. The chef used the acidity to counter the sweetness. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

For a longest time, we were told that Australia had one of the best viet food. Finally we had a chance of Aus viet food. Visited by many locals. Two giant menu with English translation. Sitting shoulder to shoulder with strangers. Signs of a good AISAN restaurant - long Q outside during lunch, old people willing to Q up and super tiny tables. .

Now let’s come to the broth. Sweet light and savory. It tasted so so good. Right amount of beefiness right amount of savoriness. The constant flow of customers ensure the good quality meat. I highly recommend THE SPECIAL! .

I found pho in both viet and melb. Because of the cheap and high quality beef in Aus, this place surely served way better pho.

Farm to table concept. Everything from the bread to the pickles were made in house. I highly recommend to give cheese toast and their counter dessert a try!

During the weekdays, they generally only serve drinks and some snacks. Over the weekend, they served main. Even before the chowder arrived on our table, the smell was OMG. Buttery aromatic captivated our appetite. The crisp toast soaked up the savory seafood stock. The roughly chopped up veg and big chucks of seafood made the entire dish so rustic and matched the theme of the apple shed. If you want to taste what the real apple pie should taste, this is THE place.

The food was excellent. Crisp pan fried fish skin, savory seafood chowder and GARLIC BUTTER LOBSTER. The chef pulled out the flesh and cooked the lobster meat separately. Some of the sweetness in the meat was lost but the butter made up for it. Don’t forget about the meat in the crawls and head. Super delicious. Lastly I recommend to go up to level two as they had 180 degree of sea view.

Pastry was decent but their coffee is the bomb. Nice silky latte with a hint of chocolaty end note. The beauty blend of beans created the right balance of acidity and bitterness. It seem to be simple but find the right ratio required years of training and minor adjustment.

We decided to have their spicy ramen a try. $15 a bowl. The spiciness hit the right spot and the saltiness was acceptable. Nothing fancy but a great place if you miss spicy food.

But what caught my attention was the free bowl of rice for customers above 60. The lady boss understood the environment of the market. She chose to give back to her customers by giving free flow of rice. Finally after almost 2 years of word of mouths, she found her stable customers base. .

Tender ribs with thick and herby soup. Healed the soul and gave much comfort. Recommended. .

Happiest Bak Kut Teh located at Chinatown complex. Closed on Monday. Open for lunch and dinner. It was found near the escalator.
