This is a bit of a backdated post, but I just discovered the photos on my camera and so decided to blog them. We went to Long
But let’s be honest, I’ll always remember it because of this:
ANYWAY! Hilarious wet towel wrapper aside, I really enjoy eating there because service is brisk, food is good, and it’s reasonably priced. It’s a great restaurant to go in a big group to, so you can order up a storm and not break the bank.
I remember this tofu dish below was charged per piece.. and it was something like $2 a piece? I’m not sure why because whilst it was pleasant, it wasn’t flat-out stupendous or anything.
Oh but how I loved this crispy fried baby squid! Teeny baby squids that were fried til crispy, and then coated in a sticky slightly sweet sauce. So tasty, and as addictive as eating chips.
I can’t remember the specific fish we ordered, but their Steamed fish in soy sauce was fabulous. Silky, tender fish wallowing in a light soy sauce, it was so simple yet tasty.
I can’t remember what this unidentified dish is below.. obviously some sort of vegetables and bits of… something.. cooked with it?? Obviously, I didn’t touch any of it 😉
I’m a HUGE fan of E-fu noodles so I had extra helpings of this baby. I don’t know how they do it, but the noodles are always so freakin’ tasty. Plus I love the silky little mushrooms dotted through it. The beansprouts through the noodles receive a LOT less love from me, but they are easily picked out and thrown angrily onto the floor. OK OK I kid, I place them aside on my plate!
This is one of my Dad’s favourite Asian desserts, yam paste. I know this sounds totally weird to people that have not heard of (or tried) this dish. It’s cooked yam and lard, mashed up. OK now that sounds even worse!! I can’t think of an appetizing way to describe it. Trust me, it’s pretty good 🙂
I got the Sticky black rice with vanilla ice cream instead and it came out looking rather impressive, arriving in a mist of dry ice bubbling away in the glass below. The dessert itself, however, was pretty forgettable. I guess that means it was nice but nothing outstanding.
And because it was Mum’s birthday, they served us a complimentary platter of Peach-coloured sweet buns. I’m pretty sure there is a proper Chinese name for these.. but I don’t know it (help, anyone?). Anyway, these are fluffy buns shaped and coloured like little peaches, and filled with some sort of sweet paste. They’re really good!!! :)~
