Northbridge Chinese Restaurant

Going to a chinese restaurant for good service is like a diabetic going to an ice-cream shop for a sugarless dessert. Regardless, this is my all time favourite restaurant for a chinese banquet. Service is rushed, but food is super tasty.

A chinese banquet usually consists of several courses including soup, starters, some delicious crustacean, meat, fish, veggies, rice and dessert. Northbridge Chinese Restaurant has the best banquet I’ve had in Perth so far, and it just so happens to be the cheapest. For six people, the banquet is $188.00 and includes the dishes below that go so well with a big bucket of steamed rice and unlimited tea!

House Soup

House Soup

A brothy soup with bones and chunks of carrot.

Steamed Scallops on Shell

Steamed Scallops with Vermicelli

These are divine! The natual flavour of the scallops are steamed with a delicious sauce of garlic and soy. The scallops are then topped with vermicelli noodles and spring onions.

Everytime I get this dish, I ask the waiter for a bowl so I can keep the sauce for later…

Each person gets two. Mine is drenched with sauce.

Butter Lobster with E- Fu Noodles

The (live) lobster is selected from their tank and straight to the kitchen. It’s then married with a butter gravy sauce and buttery tasting E-Fu Noodles.

E- Fu Noodles are noodles which have been deep fried, dried and then re-fried again!

Words fail me in describing how much I enjoy this dish… so here’s a picture of one of my plates.

Not only will you be fighting for the lobster pieces.. but the noodles will be eaten to the last strand.

Additional Lobster, Singapore Style

Singapore Lobster with Deep Fried Mantao

Because we had eight people instead of the recommended six people for this banquet, we decided order another side of lobster on top of the banquet. We chose Singapore Lobster with Deep Fried Mantao.

Mantao, a chinese steamed bun, is the perfect accompaniment to dip up in the delicious singapore sauce. It’s soft, sweet and of course even better when deep-fried.

So golden.

Crispy Skin Chicken and Egg Tofu

Crispy Skin Chicken

The chicken is so cripsy yet tender. The salt that accompanies the chicken usually includes msg so try not to eat too much of it.

In the background is the Egg Tofu. A silky block of fried egg tofu topped with a meat, asparagus and mushroom gravy sauce.

Steamed Toothfish

Steamed flakey toothfish topped with chinese mushrooms.

Some Veggies

Choy Sum Veggies in Garlic Sauce

Kai Lan stir fried with garlic sauce.

Sago Dessert

A cold asian dessert of coconut milk and sago.

Fruit Platter of Oranges

And some sweet oranges to finish.

Northbridge Chinese Restaurant is very flexible. We opted to have the crispy skin chicken instead of the usual saltry chicken dish so if there is anything on the original banquet you’d like to change, just ask them.
