Lunar Cuisine is a fairly new restaurant in Sunnybank and we visited this place for dinner a couple of weeks ago with SaC's family. The menu here is seriously like a magazine and you order and tick through the form. Lunar specialises cuisine from a region of China (which I cannot remember or pronounce) but mostly spicy food!
Free tea and congee available from the front section of the restaurant. We tried a number of dishes and the first one was the 'sliced boiled pork with garlic sauce'. I like this dish although the sauce can be quite spicy.
|Sliced boiled pork with garlic sauce - $8|
Another favourite dish of mine was the 'marinated roasted duck'. The meat was quite tender and marinated well with the soya sauce. I enjoyed it!
|Marinated Roasted Duck - $15|
Lunar Cuisine has monthly promotion for a specific meal and the meal for that month was this sweet and sour fish. The special deal was that this fish will be priced according to the day of the month. For example, on the 15th March this dish will be at $15.
The fish was deep fried to perfection and sauce was quite good. Overall I think it was quite a good deal for only $15!
We sampled a few more dishes and one of them is this duck soup with glass noodles with a spicy and sour base. Lots of noodles but very little duck meat.
One of the chef's recommended dish was this claypot soup, that was cooked with prawns, corns, bamboo shoots, pork/fish balls and wanton lookalike that were filled with minced meat. In contrast to other dishes, the soup has its sweetness from the ingredients and certainly not spicy at all!
We had two more dishes (seen in the same photo): the sizzling garlic prawns was one of the recommended dish and it tasted all right. The prawns were quite fresh but pretty small and be ready to get your fingers dirty! The last dish was the pork belly on pickled vegetables. Hmmm...yum! The pork belly was really tender and soft.
Overall, we enjoyed our time, conversation and meals in Lunar Restaurant. It was pretty busy that night and we even had to make a booking....
