More stupendous food joy at Dixon House Food Court - this time we try the popular North Chinese lamb kebabs and more at Bijou China. [CLOSED - REPLACED BY THE SIMILAR & MOST EXCELLENT ANNA'S KITCHEN]
Bijou China is the tiny little stand on your left as you walk down the stairs from the main Dixon Street entrance. The menu seems north Chinese inspired with a few standard crowd pleasers for good measure. A big shout out to the boss lady - she is super nice.
The Northern Chinese style lamb skewars are hugely popular here. $2 each, 6 for $10 or 10 for $12. Cooked to medium with a healthy cumin kick. These are probably the pick of the menu.
Stir fried eggplant with garlic - $6, Incredible value. And it's eggplant, of course it tastes good. It's sweet, wet and shiny, goes well with the lamb kebabs.
Pork mince on noodles - $8.50. The pork mince is braised in a dark, soy gravy. The fresh sliced Chinese cabbage perfectly cuts the richness of the sauce and the stodge of the noodles. Yummo.
A fine feast for $24.50, with enough left over for lunch tomorrow. Heaven is a Chinatown food court.
ps - we formally apologize for the lack of Russian Borscht in this post...
