Review - Eastern Treasures

Does My Bomb Look Big In This?
I was a bit confused by the arrival of an invitation to dine at Eastern Treasures. You see it didn't seem that long since I was dining at the launch of it's predecessor, Noble Court back HERE... but when I looked back, low and behold it was three years ago! Gee time flies when you're having fun! So I sent Alex Harmon to uncover this newly opened spot...



As leagues clubs go, this Chinese restaurant is a treat. No buffet in sight, no MSG in the air and a bountiful à la carte menu. We commenced with Prawn Dumplings ($5.50/4) and Pork Dim Sim ($5.50/4) so big, plump and juicy it was like Yum Cha after cosmetic surgery. A mere $39 gets you your very own Peking Duck plus a bottle of wine (Tuesday-Thursday). Presented to the table and prepared as duck pancakes. You then have a choice of Duck Noodles or San Choy Bow. We opted for the latter and as we ploughed through the scrumptious pancakes it was whisked off to the kitchen, minced and served on a fresh lettuce leaf the size of a baseball mitt. Their pièce de résistance is the Sweet and Sour Barramundi ($38.80) with orange sauce, turning heads as it’s wheeled out – big, bright and looking like it’s leading the New Year Parade. The fish was cooked to perfection, the crisp batter offering a nice crunch, but over-sweetness let it down. For me, it was more of a celebration on a plate. Luckily the delicate fried rice gave it an essential savoury balance – success! Some of the pokies profits have invested wisely in this Chinese extravaganza.
