For what is arguably the best Chinese cuisine in town, head to Wing Hin in Hazelwood, to enjoy a menu guaranteed to take you on a gastronomic adventure.
Choose their sublime roast pork with plum sauce, which is then dipped in sugar, or opt for the roasted duck – rather than the more finicky Peking duck. Also worth trying is the salt and pepper calamari or prawns, which come in a sizeable serving.
Be sure not to miss the delicious potboilers (dumplings) with a selection of fillings, or the crunchy Chinese vegetables that are almost too pretty to eat. Pair your main with any number of rice dishes and fried noodles. The portions are generous – even without sides – and four dishes shared between four diners will be more than ample.
Like many local Chinese restaurants, they aren’t great on wine, so check out a few of the Chinese/Asian options like sake or rice wine, or bring your own.
In the past, this could sometimes be difficult because of language problems – tough when you want to try the unknown – but language is no longer a barrier. The staff are well informed and quick to help out.
They’ve kept it simple with clean lines and easy colours so that the diners and the food are the focus. It’s a good place to relax because you’re never hurried along. The attitude is laid back, which encourages hearty and hospitable meals. In all, Wing Hin is a great place to hang with friends.
If you’re in any doubt about the authenticity of the food, the presence of Chinese families should reassure you.
