New place in Chinatown seemingly catering for a predominantly Chinese crowd at the moment. Seemed like the specialities were large fish dishes in metal trays, but they looked a bit much for lunch (Carp, Hairline and other unusual fish for those interested) and fish hotpots.

We had: the Chinese hamburger - juicy, crisp almost shish kebab like shards of meat in a griddled bread; Most Tossed Noodles in the North Eastern Style - a beef gravy over cold shredded cucumber, shredded chicken, carrot, black fungus and flat glass noodles (very tasty), Sauteed Chicken with Chilli peppers (also popular with the other dinners) - which was a huge pile of chillis with delicious morsels of numbing fried chicken (the best dish and highly addictive) Beef brisket noodles (competent, but nothing special) ; Ginger egg fried rice (a bit clumpy truth be told) ; Cucumber salad (mildly smacked cucumber in a thin garlic chicken broth sauce)

All in all - some very interesting dishes and a good lunch. More exploration needed.
