The craving for good Chinese food started last week, the Lunar New Year. I had not been to Chinatown Brasserie in a little while and my cousin's birthday became another excellent excuse to go. Our lunch menu consisted of: Shanghai Soup Dumplings, Shrimp and Snow Pea Leaf Dumplings, Szechuan Chicken and Shrimp with Spicy Hoisin Sauce and half Peking Duck to top it all off. What a great meal. Even the chocolate fortune cookies were good. It was the best Peking Duck I believe I've ever had. Highly recommend it.
Then we walked down to Tai Pan Bakery for some Taro Milk Tea and cakes. Perfect ending.
The interiors of Chinatown Brasserie are also gorgeous. It's the other reason I dine there. It reminds me of one of my favourite films, In the Mood for Love. No surprises that their website uses it's famous soundtrack. Below is a little iPhone photo essay to give you a little taste of everything.
