Ohh I’ve been super slack in updating. It is just so easy to go and get sidetracked by other things. The cold weather has settled in for a few months yet, and the days are getting shorter. Let’s say I’m not the biggest winter fan.
This is yet another instalment into my culinary adventures. I seem to be going through an Asian food phase. I’m craving more noodle soups and dumplings. Probably because of this weather. A friend recommended Miss Chu’s a while ago, so when we found ourselves with nothing better to do, we decided a stop to the tuck shop on Oxford Street was in order.
We started off with some green tea. A cup will set you back $2 per person. I love the little ‘popcorn-esque’ bits that float on top of the water.
Traditional pork hanoi spring rolls were $6 for 5 pieces. The outer shell was light and crispy, and complemented the spicy meat encased within. The rolls tasted exceptional drenched in its accompanying sauce.
Dessert set us back $4.50, was a lovely light coconut mousse atop a layer of chestnut jelly. I love the presentation in a folded pandan leaf. This was the perfect balance of salty sweet, as Asian desserts tend to be.
Unfortunately I didn’t photograph the rest of the food as I was a little busy eating it all. Oops. Other dishes we ordered include bahn mi, pho and scallop/prawn dumplings. I’d have to say the dumplings were my favourite. Miss Chu’s have a number of tuck shops around Sydney and Melbourne. Visit their website for more information. Oh I should also mention that they deliver to your office or home! Super convenient.
