There's a load of hooha on the internet about what's the best yum cha in town. We've eaten yum cha everywhere from Marrickville to Guangzhou, and to be perfectly Francis with you, it all tastes pretty much the same to us. You usually get the same dishes at most places, with varying levels of quality and service. As long as the food is fresh and the room is large and noisy and we've got no idea how to read the bill, we're happy. King's Seafood has all that plus beer.
It's all good. The most moans of pleasure came from the orange square thing in the middle bottom photo, it was like a steamed sweet stodgey cakey with big coconut notes. Yay. Our only gripe was the whitebait was cold by the time we got it.
The other hit of the table was the prawn and garlic chive wontons, top left, prawns mixed with fresh green flavours equals happy.
The dessert trolley had a couple of new treasures for us. The sago pudding (left) was thick, warm and custard-like. The steamed cake with layers of egg yolk to bottom left was also a winner, light and stodgy at the same time, slightly fruity.
King's Seafood Restaurant is at 140 Rowe St Eastwood, NSW. That's in the pedestrian mall bit. It was busy on a public holiday but not too crazy.
