Sugarcane in clear pork and vegetable soup

Golden Century Fox Studios is the smaller version of the clattering city branch and tonight it's less frantic but still respectably full. We start with the complimentary soup, this one rich with pork broth, carrot and sugar cane which is an interesting addition. We don't usually see sugar cane in soup but it's judiciously applied so that it doesn't overwhelm with sweetness, more adds to the harmony.

Garlic butter lobster $300

My Uncle has ordered an array of dishes and I'm ecstatic to see that a 2kg lobster is listed among them as I adore lobster. It's rich and delicious - food of the gods really - heady with garlic and reminiscent of an Italian pasta with the strong garlic butter scent. It's worth every slowly savoured bite.

Wasabi beef

The Wasabi beef, one that my cousins said last time was too mild has a strong kick tonight, especially with the sauce. I admit that I am not a Wasabi fan at all so after an exploratory bite I give my husband the rest in bowl, rice included!

Stir fried vegetables

The stir fried vegetables are delicious and well cooked with broccoli, snow peas, sugar snap peas and asparagus tips.

Spicy Peking pork ribs

These soft, unctuous pork ribs end up being one of my favourite dishes of the night, the pork just melting in my mouth it is so soft.

Crispy skinned chicken

The crispy skinned chicken which comes with a tumble of shredded shallots and sauce isn't bad but I admit that I generally prefer duck for this sort of dish. This is the kind of thing I'd normally enjoy with some rice but given the lobster and the rest of the meal, 1 piece will do me.

Barramundi with ginger, soy and shallots

We have two fish tonight, the first one, a barramundi is absolutely delicious, the soft yet firm meat and skin partnering so perfectly with the soy, ginger and shallots.

Silver Perch with mushrooms

The Silver Perch with mushrooms isn't bad, the fish itself is nice but the mushrooms are too salty and strongly flavoured for the delicate fish.

Sweet Barley Soup

Golden Century, Fox Studios

We finish off the night with some sweet barley soup and some fruit, fortune cookies and fried dough (less successful as it's plain, without any sort of sugar on top).
