Golden Century – Sydney’s Chinatown

First time we saw Golden Century, we told ourselves there would be no way for us to EVER dine there as the live tanks freaked me out:

Golden Century - Live abalones in tanks

But then a good friend, mademoiselle A, advised me it was actually pretty good for seafood. That’s how we gave it a go and ended up lo-ving it! It was the restaurant I took my traveling family touring the world (not very Asian, but he’s French and she’s French born Chinese) to get excellent Chinese food. I highly recommend the diced peppered beef (so good and tender!), the ginger and shallot chicken.

(I prefer the steamed version over the fried one, but the fried one is also very nice.)

The charsiu is not bad, but far from being as outstanding as the one East Ocean serves.

I highly recommend the combination noodles.

The seafood is absolutely fabulous, the noodles are half crispy (fried noodles) half chewy (when they meet the sauce), there’s char siu and vegetables in, so good!

Golden century - look at the crispy noodles!

I love the fact they give you biscuits and sweets!
