Taste Gallery Shanghainese Restaurant Sunnybank


Taste Gallery Chinese Restaurant Sunnybank
I've been struggling, trying hard to put myself to sleep in the past few days. Shift work sucks, as it messes up your body clock, big time! No proper meal-time, no proper goodnight sleep, no leisure and hence, no blogging until today.

I'm finally having a day off! It's the Toowoomba Show holiday tomorrow. That allows me to snuggle up in my bed (at this time of the day), covered in warm blanket (instead of working) while listening to random songs shuffling on my iTunes.

This would be the last post of my Easter long weekend 2013. We recreated sweet memories on the Gold Coast. Though I kinda wished that it could have been Cairns, Tasmania, Melbourne or any other part of Australia, but I felt glad and thankful still. Happiness could be found through simple things. With people around you. People who love you and care for you =)

So, dinner in Sunnybank, Market Square's latest addition, Taste Gallery Shanghainese Restaurant.

Its magazine-like menu with color images and English descriptions.

Here's what we've ordered after scanning through everyone's tables. Well, most people's tables.

Shanghainese Steamed Mini Pork Bun with Crab Meat (蟹粉小笼包) in bamboo basket. 4 for $6.50 or 8 for $13. First bite was intense as its overpowering "pork smell" oozes out from the not-so-hot soup dumplings. You'll need black vinegar, heaps! I wouldn't say they're the best around, yet not the worst either.

Pouring Chrysanthemum Pu-erh Tea (菊普). I was a bit clumsy at it *shamed*

Seafood Combination in Hot Pot (海皇豆腐煲) - $20.80. The veggies and seafood were cooked just enough leaving them crisp and fresh-tasting. Inviting smell, but unfortunately, lack of flavors and slightly too watery (the gravy).

Deep Fried Chicken with Bones & Dry Onions, and Stir Fried with Shallot and Red Pepper (竹笼鸡) - $13.80. One of the popular dishes. Very appealing, crispy crunchy (do watch out for the bones) with a noticeably spicy kick that balanced out the saltiness in the chicken. Winner!

Let's dig in now! I'm starrrrrrving!!!

We don't mind returning to try out their other dishes, but not on purpose for sure.
