It seems pitiful that in its seventeen year operating history, I haven’t managed to discover this tucked-away Circular Quay gem. Bibbed up, I curse myself with every bite of the magnificent Braised King Crab with Singapore Chilli Sauce (market price $78/kilo); it’s beautifully cooked and the lip-tingling sauce allows the sweet, succulent taste of crab to shine.
Dumpling and Noodle House
Little more than a hole in the wall, this grungy and atmospheric northern Chinese dumpling and noodle house serves up authentic (and excellent) offerings very efficiently. With barely five tables to their name (three on the sidewalk) and absolutely no concessions toward comfort or decor, you probably won’t be here for much longer than it takes to slurp down a bowl of Chicken Short Soup ($11.80).
