For South Eastern Chinese food, try the Hakka Abacus Seeds ($6), made with tapioca (30%) and yam (70%) flour, cooked in olive oil with sea salt. The abacus seeds were so soft and moist, and worked very well in terms of texture with the finely cut vegetable ingredients like mushrooms, carrots and tofu. We thoroughly enjoyed the dish and even had three packets to take away at the end of our meal!
The Hakka Thunder Tea Lei Cha ($7.50) tossed with cashew and almond nuts is also a hit. Paired with it was rich herbal greenish soup that held the brown rice nicely together, delivering an overall well-balanced taste. Other must tries include the Korean Bibimbap ($7.50) served with miso soup. The dish burst with an even distribution of sweet, sour and savoury flavours.
For something lighter, try the Salad Noodle ($7.50) with goji berries, drizzled with plum sauce for a bright taste. Or the pure Vegetable Sushi ($6.50) hand-rolled with no rice, served with wasabi in liquid amino soya sauce for a healthy twist. Wash down your satiation with rich fragrant non-caffeinated Ban Cha, warm Lemon Grass Tea or chilled Rosella.
