My favourite roast duck house has arrived on the Vic Park restaurant strip.
Maybe it’s a sign we’re old farts, but Jac and I were content to have a quiet new year’s eve and skip the parties, crowds and fireworks. Instead, after Jac finished work we drove to Vic Park in search of dinner, something different to the Christmas fare we’d been eating the past week. We chose […]
Mom Dumpling House serves Northeastern Chinese cuisine, which has its origins in the region of China known historically as Manchuria, which is next to Russia and Mongolia.

The stir-fry was flavoured with oyster sauce, sesame oil and white pepper. Jac threw in the leftover Billy Lee’s broccoli […]
