New Shanghai - Chatswood Chase

Very quick Monday lunch at the New Shanghai Restaurant in Chatswood Chase shopping centre.  Had to get an IPhone repaired at the Apple Store, and this favourite is just downstairs.    What we love about this place is the home made noodles and dumplings - all done behind a big glass window.  It's also very quick.

We started with the Steamed Mini Pork Bun - 8 per serve.  These come with a warning "These dumplings have delicious hot broth in them.  Please make a small hole on the dumpling to allow broth to flow out onto your spoon.  This will avoid burning your mouth while still lets you enjoy the broth in the dumpling."  Mind you, you still end up burning your mouth and its funny to watch people juggling the dumpling in their mouth whilst flapping their hand in front!!!

We then ordered Stir Fried Spinach with Garlic, very delicate and healthy!  Then we tried the Chinese Rice Cake with Shredded Pork in an XO Sauce.  Lovely flavour, but the rice cake turned out to be slices of a noodle 'sausage' and were rather chewy.  We had to have our favourite - Deep Fried Chicken with special Garlic and Chilli Sauce.  I wish I could get my chicken skin so crispy, and the sauce obviously has Black Vinegar and Coriander in it too.

With a Coke each, and Jasmine tea, the bill came to $57.20.
