Ling Nam Restaurant

On Tuesday night, we caught up with a few friends who were down for business from Malaysia, and they decided to go to Ling Nam. I wasn't too crash-hot on going but never the less, it was a relatively predictable Chinese restaurant, so I thought.

In Uni days, we went there after a late night and order our supper of hot bowls of beef and preserved egg congee with Chinese fried donuts. That's what I thought they were good at. This time, luckily we went with friends who knew what to order, my Ling Nam horizon has broaden.

We ordered giant pipis in XO sauce, salt and pepper chicken steaks, black pepper sizzle plate steaks, garlic stir-fried vegetables, deep-fried flounder, scallops and chinese broccoli etc... The giant pipis dish came with deep fried Chinese donuts so that you can dip the donuts into the thickened spicy xo sauce. Delicious! Salt and pepper chicken steaks were fantastic as well - crunchy juicy and flavoursome. Definitely something I would order again. I don't remember how much it was per person, but I assume that it was fine. Probably around $30 per person. So much food....

Hmmm, Chinese seafood is so nice. Aren't you being a bit daring though after all the recent TV stories about unhygienic practices in kitchens in Chinatown. Or is it all a media beat up?

On my budget as an unemployed person I prefer to eat my chinese seafood at the Grand Asia Cafe in an arcade off Bourke St. Curry Laksa for $7.80. Yum!

I've just started a forum for discussing Melbourne, it's news, events, people and community groups.

You could use it to promote your blog, post restaurant reviews, meet people, get ideas, discuss things with others, and work on collaborative projects. The potential is really great but it needs participants. I hope that you will join.
