Huai Yang salted duck

A yummy cold dish to kickstart our meal, the meat is so tender and delicious ♥

One of my favourite dish – Gao Li Xia

Fried food always taste the best. I loved how the crispy prawns go with mayonnaise – perfect taste ♥ Thumb up for that. Helping myself with it one after another.

Shrimp in “Long Jing” style 龙井虾仁

Green tea pep up with fresh shrimp. Though it may seem simple, but it’s definietelyappetizing ♥ Strong aroma of green tea make it irresistible.

Yummy Yummy!

Signature dish – Eastern Yi Ping Steamed pork dumpling 东方一品小笼包.

Arrgh, I loved the Xiao Long Bao. It is so juicy that when I had a bite, the juice came flowing out ♥ The skin is thicker to hold the generous portion of soup within it. Sucked out the juice before empty the dumpling into my mouth.

It made me crave for more.

Noodles with minced meat & mushroom in spicy sauce 炸酱面.

Anothe popular dish at the restuarant that you cannot miss. The sweetness of the sauce is really 一级棒 and the handpulled noodles is beyond the standard, Shifu really put a lot of efforts in it.

Wanton with hot chilli sauce, 红油抄手.

As you can see from the colour of the soup, it’s really spicy. Stand by your drinks at the side!!! But apart from that, the wanton is chewy and fresh.

Double boiled chicken soup.

It’s totally awesome, it has the strong aroma of chicken in the soup which made me couldn’t stop drinking. Finished every bits of it – chicken and dumpling.

Here comes the boss of The Eastern Restaurant, Mr Hoo Zhou Lin. A very friendly man who stayed with us throughout the meal and listening to our comments (:

Fu Rong special scramble egg, 芙蓉赛螃蟹 where egg white is mixed together with the crab meat.Before we began eating, we stir the egg yolk together.

I loved the combination. Remembered to try this dish when you patronise (:

Amazing spread of dishes! Every dishes seems impressive!

Shanghai pan fried pork dumpling, 上海鲜肉锅贴.

Handmade dumpling with consist mixture of pork, ginger and soy sauce. Yet another marvellous dish, like what I mention earlier, fried food always taste good. Served fresh from oven, being scalded by it.

Fancy the chinese dumpling?

Here’s a great combo meal at only $6.90!!! Available from 12-5pm excluding weekends and public holidays.

Flowing Custard Bun 流沙包

It’s actually salted egg wrapped within it. The custard was caught in the middle of sweetness and salty, it tastes just perfect.

Bloggers at work. Catch the bloggers in action, shoot before we eat.

Last but not least, red bean paste pan cake.

The red bean paste is really sweet ♥

Not only that, we have the opportunity to spy on how the chef make the “La Mian – handpulled noodles”
