yum cha

The Chinese have the right idea when it comes to going out for brunch. Yum Cha really is the best thing since sliced bread

I love this wonderful phenomenen of getting little plates of food with different tasty morsels on them , and trying a variety of different goodies, some of them fantastic, some of them good and some that may not be your particular taste.

We went to the Sunny Town Restaurant in Newmarket today for Bruces Birthday , we have been there about 4 times now and tried lots of interesting things, and I have developed some real favourites ;……. oh my goodness im such a dumpling fan , especially the prawn ones and the pork and spring onion ones. and delicious egg tarts.

I tried chicken feet today …… really didnt like those that much but at least now I can say I have tried them.

If you have never tried Yum Cha , take it from me , you really have to go and try it sometime , you so dont know what your missing out on

The Spicy House

This is a great little Szechuan Chinese Restaurant based in Dominion Road Auckland.

We have been there a few times now and the food is consistantly great for a very reasonable price. Its authentic and always popular with Young East Asians. The food has a bit of a kick to it in that it is spicy but you can have it mild or much hotter if you prefer.

Each time we have been we have had a choice of 3 different dishes from their extensive menu along with steamed rice and as much green tea as you can drink. We have not had the same dish twice .The food is amazing using lots of fresh ingrediants and good generous servings. My favourite things so far have been the chicken curry which had chunks of lebanese cucumber through it which was a surprise but oh so very tasty and the kong shang tai which was vibrant green water spinach that was mixed with lots of crushed garlic and it seemed to be boiled and slightly salty .Absolutly incredible, I still have the taste in my mouth just thinking about it.

They are open fairly late with a constant stream of patrons through the door at any one time. It is a very relaxed , freindly and clean establishment with awesome food
and I would highly reccomend them
