Peking Chinese Restaurant |
BYO, 752 Beaufort Street, Mt Lawley (between first and second Ave) 5pm – 10pm 7 days.
A dimly lit restaurant, the Peking has solidly stood the test of time. The food is your standard Chinese (although I am somewhat suspicious of how they managed to prepare six dishes in ten minutes), in plentiful quantity. While it might look a bit dodgy when you go to microwave the leftovers for breakfast the next day, the first time round it tasted good, and had no anonymous pieces in it. The component veggies seemed fresh.
The restaurant itself has almost a film noir feeling to it, if it weren’t for workplace regulations I could well imagine the top half of the room being hazed over with smoke. (Read: It needs redecorating, but some nostalgic part of me likes it as it is). I believe that the majority of their customers are of the take-away variety, and true to form it’s been a couple of years since I ate in there. A good place for a change away from the ultra-trendy eateries that seem to be popular at the moment.
( Tan Po Po, Swish and Chips, Red Rooster, Hanami, Monte Fiore, Siena's, Café Martino, Mille Café, Avenue NineCollapse )
and Newish in Mt Lawley:
-Globe Café: not exactly new, but in a new location. Previously across the street in an arcade, the Globe has now taken over the site of the Indoneasian restaurant. If it hadn’t gone, I’d have reviewed it already as “that Indoneasian place always gave people food poisoning”. ALWAYS. Lets hope the Globe has cleaned the kitchen a bit.
-Two Fat Indians: at the site previously occupied by The Red Orchid. Previously an expensive Thai place, the Red Orchid used to have a very nice chilli-mango (insert meat of your choice) dish. It has relocated to open again in several months, and an Indian restaurant has opened in its place. Since I am not normally disposed towards Indian food, I thought I’d just mention it in case someone else is looking for new Indian restaurants to try it out. Located next to the Queens Hotel, Beaufort St, Highgate.
Now, go forth and eat! (and review!)
