Some of you may remember Sunny Harbour as the restaurant where we enjoyed a recession lobster.
This time we were back. For mud crab. Three cheers, yay!
I have no idea how much these individual dishes cost, so just enjoy the pretty pictures.
I was a bit disappointed to discover that there was no complimentary soup before the food came out. Apparently now, most Chinese restaurants only offer either a pre-dinner soup or a dessert soup.
Anyway, we ordered and the food came out quickly. And you know I love it when the food comes out quickly.
Two mud crabs served with shallots and garlic on a base of noodles
YUM!! I love the noodles because they have this crabby flavour to them.
The only thing I don't like about crabs is that it takes so much effort to eat the fiddly bits. But I guess that sweet meat is reward enough.
The chicken was okay, I had one piece but wasn't eager to have another. Don't get me wrong, there was nothing wrong with it but it was ordinary.
The pork pieces were a bit small for my liking.
I'm not a fan of duck feet....actually I've never tried duck feet and don't intend to in the near future. But I had a mushroom and it was nice.
After the meal, we received a complimentary dessert soup and fruit.
A nice dinner, though if I was ordering the dishes, I would have chosen differently. For starters, I like that tofu thing that has a topping of prawns, peas, carrots etc. I also like salt and pepper pork. And I remember that we had some beef cubes last time that were really yummy.
And before you say that I shouldn't criticise a free dinner, I paid for half of the dinner okay! So I have complaining rights.
