We started with dumplings, the Classic, Pork & Crab and Chicken, all were nice, my favourite were the Pork and Crab, their flavour was richer and really juicy inside.
The Braised Pork Belly was good but a little too fatty, the meat a little bland, after having had Viet Grills Pork Belly the week before it did not match up.
My favourite dish was the Ginger Chicken with Rice Wine and Sesame Oil soup, a great fragrant broth.
The waitress told us we should not order the Ginger Duck with Sake served in a clay pot, she said the flavour generally did not agree with whitey’s palates. We were deeply offended and ordered it anyway. We should have listened, it tasted medicinal, not bad but not good, very herby and earthy.
The Belly of Lamb in spicy herbal sauce was good but like the pork the meat seemed cheap and could have had more flavour.
The only vegetable dish I remember is the Aubergine with Mashed Garlic and Tao Pan sauce, this was delicious but I say that about every eggplant dish I eat.
