It has been a great adventure.
For my birthday my colleague Jennifer agreed we should go on another Asian Food Adventure (which I wish had a better acronym ;)
So we went off to Dinesty.
Nope that is not a typo. Or rather, it's not MY typo. It is the actual name.
In a totally unprepossessing strip mall off No.3Rd I was expecting another dull, uninspired interior.
And the food.......the food.
The shanghai green beans were salty and crisp and porky.
The shanghai noodles were the best I have had anywhere. SO good they were eaten before I took a photo!
The beef roll - my newest Asian food friend was fantastic - a crispy pancakey roll with well seasoned beef and some green onion... SO good.
And as Jen was eager to stall me from returning to my office (so as to give my staff time to organise the birthday prank - which was, in fact, an epic, if hilarious FAIL) we wandered into the nearby Asian Grocery Store called City Fresh. I found a fabulous bamboo steamer for the Steamed BBQ pork buns Lindsay churns out of our kitchen these days and some Milo (a drink from my childhood which my kids love too).
It was fun to wander around and see all the different items on offer. Also getting close to Chinese New Year the decorations are up.
A great lunch....Thanks Jen Chen!
