Toowoomba Sports Club: Chop Goh Meh Celebration Dinner


Toowoomba Sports Club: Chop Goh Meh Celebration Dinner

Chap Goh Meh, also known as Chinese Valentine's Day (元宵节) which falls on the 15th as well as the last day of lunisolar Chinese New Year celebration. My boi and I have been deliberately planned to try out the Gardens Brasserie at the Toowoomba Sports Club, but there were always obstacles in the way until today, we finally got the perfect time and reason to visit the restaurant! Just like City Golf Club, membership sign-up is required (only $2.50 annually) prior accessing its facilities, unless you're accompanied by a member of course =)

A beautiful cup of Hot Chocolate - $3.50
The most satisfying thing we ordered tonight.

Loved those mini tanglung (lanterns) right above my head...

Salt and Pepper Prawns served with chips, lemon & sweet chilli lime aioli tartare sauce - $15.50
The shape of the plates / bowls are really awkward, can hardly use a knife on them. Also, they gave me no sweet chilli lime aioli but ordinary tartare sauce *unhappy*

My boi order a fried dish too ><"

Seafood Basket served with chips, lemon & tartare sauce - $ 16.00
Honestly, we were a bit disappointed after seeing the two dishes. The portion was small and definitely doesn't worth the price.

The interior was nice and classy, but not the food apparently.

    Thanks babe, and yeah the reflection on the mirror has doubled up the number of the lanterns, making them appeared to be more and more colorful ;)

    Surprisingly the hot chocolate was made by an old lady. She is pretty skillful, isn't she?
