Yum Cha Cuisine

Yum Cha Cuisine, Westfield Garden City Quite a while ago, the in-laws took me to Yum Cha Cuisine in Garden City for my birthday dinner in September. There are a number of Yum Cha Cuisine branches and the one inGarden City was the only one I have visited so far. It was busy that night, however the service was still impeccable. 
We ordered one of the set dinner, which was served with free soup and steamed rice. Besides that, we had additional small meals from the dim sum menu (still available during dinner service). Things to note is that, if we bring in our own personal tea leaves, the surcharge is $1/pax rather than the price of $2.50/pax. 

My cravings for sweet and sour pork continues during the pregnancy and it is a must order if we go out for Chinese cuisine. That night we had something similar, and I must say, I was satisfied. Other meals on our table include the roast chicken, seafood tom yum tofu, sizzling fish and black bean pork noodles. 

We were happy with all the dishes that nig…


Longtime, Fortitude Valley Longtime has been on my wishlist for a very long time and finally, I had the chance to visit it with MXM, who is a frequent diner here.

We sipped on our drinks outside while waiting to be seated.

First up were the Longtime's bao (chicken, pork and soft shell crab). I did not try the soft shell crab bao because crab is considered a 'no no' in pregnancy having afraid that the baby will have 11 fingers!! Well, I had some during first trimester and Little G has 10 toes and 10 fingers... Back to their baos: They were pretty small in size and I thought the flavo…

Vintaged Bar and Grill

Vintaged Bar and Grill, Brisbane CBD
Pardon me for the slow updates and reviews in Memories Treasure Chest! Recently, we just welcomed a new addition to our family and parenthood is so new, exciting and challenging at the same time. While the Little G is asleep now, and I myself not feeling sleepy, I thought I should just catch up on this blog!

The Mr had his birthday celebration this year in Vintaged Bar and Grill, located in Hilton Brisbane hotel. The visit was new for both of us and I was amazed at how big and spacious Vintaged is. Once seated, we browsed through the menu and made our order. For me it is quite simple tossing between fish or chicken as I need to have fully cooked protein while the Mr chose the steak.

First off, we were given complimentary bread with a side spread (possiblycapsicum based) and I thoroughly enjoyed them. 

Next off, we tried one of the their special entree of the month/season and chose the chicken with couscous. Although the serving size was small, it was r…
