Had a farewell/graduation dinner with those from my workplace and their families about a week ago. We had it at My Yen Chinese Restaurant loacted at 74 Belair Road, Hawthorn. It’s one of the oldest Chinese restaurants in Adelaide. I took a bus there, almost missed the stop. Really hate taking public transport even though the system here is good. I’m such a spoil brat ;p
I have no idea what the actual food we had, just let you see the photos hehehe…
It was such a BIG dinner! We have 12-course meal! Surprisingly our table cleared most of the plates but not the other tables hehehe… We’re such big eater. There’s a plate of cracker (not sure is it prawn crackers, could be) for you to savour before waiting for the food to be served. It’s kind of tasteless.
Left: Steam oyster with ginger & shallots.
Right: Salt & pepper squid with shredded chicken meat.
Left: Hun siu chicken shark fin soup.
Right: I’m not sure what’s this hahaha… I heard there’s abalone in there. *shrug* I only know there’s mushroom and green vegetable. I’m not familiar with all these rich people food such as abalone, lobster, shark fin, bird nest, and so on and so forth *LOL*. I don’t eat these back home and never dream of eating them unless it’s served in a dinner banquet. We don’t buy these stuffs to eat at home.
Left: Lobster with noodle with ginger & shallot, love this! My first time having lobster too.
Right: Pei pa duck.
King prawn with macadamia nuts & snow peas and Seafood fried rice.
Left: Steam coral trout with ginger & shallot.
Right: Roast chicken with num yu sauce.
Left: Red bean soup, extremely sweet but it tastes good because haven’t have one for soooo looooong…
Right: Red wine… I don’t like it. It took me whole night to finish half glass of red wine and stained my lips badly -.-” I prefer white wine but will avoid drinking any alcohol if possible.
What a night! So much food! Also, so much rich-people-food in a night ;p Overall, the food was great.
