It was just before midday and the place was empty but it was warm and not off putting. Although the panda water glasses weren't particularly clean so that was less welcoming.
Steve tried to order some hot tea, green or black but we were told no. That's a little weird I thought. But then we saw someone else get a pot later so I think we were misunderstood. And that little cup on the picture looks like tea but it's dipping sauce. I almost picked it up to drink!
Anyway the spring rolls came in this fancy basket which was cute. They were fine - just like what they should be like.
Anyway, the chicken was crispy. The pork chop was well marinaded with fragrant lemon grass and some chilli. I liked the crispy pickled veg. I thought the pork chop was on the small side for the price but I guess that's the difference between being on Smith Street and being in Footscray. The best pork chop rice is definitely Footscray and so much better value with two pieces of golden fried pork and a whole heap of rice but for somewhere easy to access and close to home, this is a reasonable fix even if there is no hot tea!
