Spice it up for Spice Temple

Restaurant: Spice Temple
Location: Crown Complex
8 Whiteman Street
Southbank VIC 3006

We were craving for Chinese… well Jess and I anyway and since we were in Crown we decided to try out Spice Temple, considering that we missed out on Spice Market the night before. Not sure how that relates but it just does when the body is craving for yum cha. Note:  this is not your local yum cha place so portions are on the smaller scale, but it’s ok because it meant we had more stomach room for gelatos and not having an exploding stomach to still be able to go DFO shopping  WIN-WIN! 

House made egg noodles with XO and scallops $14

I’m not a big fan of noodles but these were quite light if only there was a bit more XO sauce.
Look at the fat scallops waiting to be eaten; too bad there was only two :( 

Eggplant braised with prawn and flathead $10
 Slow cooked to perfection, but why you only two as well! #doublesadness

Chinese broccoli with house made oyster sauce $6
 Haha because we had to get our fix of Chinese veggies. Funny how we crave for Chinese food when we’re away from home  

Chicken feet with black beans and chilli $8
 OH MA GAWD. The spiciness of these chicken feet sky-rocketed my taste buds out the roof!!  But hey the meat just fell off the bone and that’s pretty damn good! Unfortunately, Cass’s first piece wasn’t as great though; meat was still stuck on the bone and that’s a big no-no!

Spring onion pancakes $7.5 
We sure did get our sodium dosage for the day as these pancakes were sprinkled OR more like smothered with salt. I’m sure you can see the white shiny specks in the photo. This dish came last as we figured we could fit one more dish in before we moved on to our gelatos.  On a positive note, the lunch did end on a high but with a sodium chloride kind of high! xD
