Yes, yes. You saw it right. It’s Melbourne! I was away for a little bit in Melbourne and ate some great food. Sushi rolls and Vietnamese buns are everywhere. If you have AUD2.50, you can get a salmon roll, or if you have a dollar more, go get a Vietnamese bun.
I hung out at the Wesfield shopping mall in Doncaster (it was where I was staying – work-related) and decided to pick China Bar. It seems like the most popular one and had to pick a dish from the long list. I finally chose the chilli prawns on rice because it looked good.
Chilli prawns on rice.
Overall, the environment is OK. It’s the mall. The dish was reasonable but quite expensive, AUD12.80. It wasn’t really quite chilli-ish, more like tomato-ish with lots of sugar. At least it had veges and prawns was a reasonable amount – enough for my seafood dosage for the day. I’ll give the place a 7/10. Dish didn’t quite live up to expectations and not cheap. I have a few more places to add in the few days so bear with me.
Melbourne – it certainly has a bit more variety than Auckland. C’mon Auckland – let’s do it!
