It Just Has To Be Delicious

People’s Inn is at the East end of Hay Street, and serves a variety of traditional dumplings and soups. All dumplings are hand made, you can see them being made as you walk in. It’s a casual cafe, where you order first and then sit down.

This is a fairly short post because I tried the fried cabbage and pork dumplings for my lunch one day.

The steamed dumplings look really tempting, but they come in a portion size of 12, which is a bit much for me for lunch, so I chose the fried ones.

They were really delicious, the table had a good supply of soy, red vinegar and chilli sauce to accompany them.

This cafe also serves pies like pork and leek pie – and the soups being served to other tables looked really generous. I must return so that I can update this post with more pictures and thoughts.

Miss Chow’s, Whitfords

Miss Chow’s is one of a group of new restaurants that have opened in the last 12 months at Whitfords shopping centre. They all seem quite popular with the locals, and we decided to try Miss Chow’s for Sunday lunch after a morning visit to the cinema.

It’s a large open area for dining and we chose to eat inside, although it was a bit chilly with the aggressive air con and fans running.

We didn’t want to order a huge amount, just some dumplings and ribs.

I chose a fresh iced lemon tea to drink. This was lovely, and I could taste the tea as well as the lemon. It had just the right amount of sweetness.

We ordered three lots of dumplings. No dipping sauce was provided other than with the fried dumplings. There was soy sauce on the table but no small dishes to put the soy into for dipping.

The siu mai prawn and pork dumplings – four in a portion. These are very traditional Chinese dumplings served with almost every dim sum meal. they were very tasty and enjoyable. Sorry about the photo, we ate two of them before I remembered to take a photo.

We also chose the traditional partner of siu mai – har gow which are crytsal prawn dumplings. Again a portion of four, but they tasted quite bland, the flavour of the prawn did not come through.

The pan fried dumplings were pork and vegetable (like our favourite War Tip), and served with a sweet chilli oil type sauce, but it didn’t have any real heat to it. The flavour was okay, but not as nice as the previous dim sum restaurants that I have visited.

The best item that we ordered were the caramelised spare ribs. Served with black vinegar caramel, pineapple, bell peppers and fresh mint, they were succulent and fell off the bone. I wasn’t too keen on the large mint leaves – they could have been shredded. After a while the ribs felt a little too sweet, but generally they tasted quite good.

So would I go back to Miss Chow’s ? Maybe for the ribs or to try something else from the menu, but not for the dumplings. I have had better dumplings in Northbridge and won’t settle for bland ones.
