During the Easter holiday, we were having lunch in Garden City. Our usual lunch choice Hanaichi, did not open. That is a good opportunity to try something new. So, we bought the other Japanese style takeaway in the same food court, Aburi Kitchen. It just opened a few months ago.
Finally, I ordered Curry Chicken with Rice. This is a bit more expensive than Hanaichi. It costs around $13, but there was an opening offer, I got a bottle of free water. That is not bad; the price sounds similar to others. Moreover, it tasted quite good. I like the sauce; it tasted quite sweet. Also, it had a lot of chicken meat. Lastly, the rice made quite good too, that was not too hard or too soft! I think that is a new Chicken Curry Choice for new.

PeeperLunch is an original Japanese DIY
Teppan restaurant. They have branches in Japan, Hong Kong, Macau and other Asia countries I had a lot of times when I was in Hong Kong. They opened a branch in Sunnybank a few months ago. I had once after a week. There were too many people. This was not an excellent opportunity to enjoy my pepper rice.
Last Friday, I had a chance to have lunch in there. That was a first real opportunity to taste that. I ordered the signature Pepper Rice with Chicken. That was quite good. The rice served on the hot plate. It made me feel warm. Moreover, after I stir the rice with chicken on the hot plate. I found there were some hidden sauces inside the rice. That is cool! However, I found the portion sounds smaller than those I had in Hong Kong. I felt that was not enough for me as a full lunch. Rather than that, I am quite happy with this lunch experience!

In recent years, Yum Cha Cuisine restaurant is working hard to expand their business, they opened several branches, and like to open in the mainstream shopping malls. Moreover, a few days ago, I found they also got a branch in Hyperdome. The most important things I found is a significant discount at lunchtime every day. All dim sums are $4.80. All “Small, Medium and Large” tag dim sums are in the same price.
So we had a lot of dim sums that day.
For example, prawn dumplings, in other branches, eacd dish costs $ 6.80. Now it’s just $ 4.80.
And my favorite dish, Dough Stick Cheung Fun has an original price tag,$7.80, now is priced down to $ 4.80. So today we had six dishes of dim sum. The final bill was $33.
This price is very attractive, so if you have a chance to go shopping that mall, you can consider this restaurant as one of your lunch options.
It has not the afternoon tea session, so the restaurant closes at 3pm, and reopen at 5pm for dinner.

Two weeks ago, when we went to Garden City for our Night Shopping, we found that the HOT Star Large fried chicken which is popular Fried Chicken chain stores in Taiwan opened a new store in this shopping center, near the Daiso. In fact, they already opened a
Branch in the Sunnybank Market Square, but Market Square is the lack of parking spaces and too many people, so I am not very keen to try that store. Garden City store is in a different situation, there are a plenty of parking spaces, and there are a lot of major department stores or supermarkets, such as Myer, David Jones, Coles and Woolworths so you can eat chicken, but you can do your grocery shopping during the same trip.
Because of the location of the convenience, so you can try to HOT Star Large fried chicken this times
I believe that Thursday, this shop should be opened for only a few days, so there are a lot of people wish to try this new store. I spent some time to wait. After I had waited for a while, finally I got my large fried chicken breast.
This is a huge chicken breast, almost the size of my face. Also, this is very tendering too. However, that cost $ 8.5. Also, I got a small tip for you about this chicken breast, On Thursday, we bought the takeaway to home, although it is very delicious, that is not sufficient. On Sunday, we bought a chicken breast again, we ate that right away, the taste was different, that tasted very very good.
Besides of chicken breast, their chicken wings are good.It cost $3.90 for three.
Of course, you think you had too much chicken; we wish to try some things differently. I tried their sweet potato chips, and they are also very crisp.
All the above things are very delicious. We had their fried chicken twice a week.

I saw a number of my friends tried the steak in Calamvale Hotel. Finally, I had a chance to have that few weeks ago with my family.
That was on Monday. In every Monday, there is a special on the Steak. There is a steak meal on special, just $14.50. You do not need to buy any drinks at all; you still can have this special. That is a good deal. On that day, a Rump Steak main course was on Speical. That is a good deal. The main course included a steak, a bowl of Salad and chips. The portion isn’t small. I do not eat beef. Thus, I do not know whether it tastes good. But my relatives ate that, their feedback is good. For myself, I ordered a chicken breast. It tasted not bad and looked good!
Besides of food, the environment is good. This restaurant looks clean and fresh too. I will recommend you to try their Steak Monday.

Today is Mother’s Day. IKEA Logan got an offer to celebrate this. If you buy a breakfast in full price,$3.99, at IKEA Logan, your mum get a free breakfast. Vegetarian option is available. For the further details, please visit their website.
(Note: I don’t know whether this Buy One Get One Free offer is for mother or everyone.)
Easter is coming. IKEA will have a Swedish Style Buffet in their Australia stores to celebrate this at 5:30 to 7:30 pm,13th April 2017. The ticket price is a bargain. The adult is $19.99, Children (5 years old to 12 years) is $10.99, the children under five are free. Moreover, if you are IKEA Family or IKEA Business member, the price is $14.99.
Although this Swedish Style Buffet offers mainly meat balls, smoked salmon, cakes and sparking cider, they are similar what IKEA offers nomrally, but the price is only a bit higher than a normal dinner, then you can have as much as you want during these two hours. That is still a good value deal!
I worked in Brisbane Technology Park for a while. During last year, there are a few of new buildings too. I believe there are quite a fair amount of people work in there. However, there are no enough choices of Coffee Resturant. Fortunately, the new building at 4 Clunies Ross Ct has a new Coffee Shop, black ink coffee.
I like there; the atmosphere is quite modern and comfortable. Their coffee is not too bad. Also, they serve breakfast and lunch. I think that is a good place to meet some clients.

A few months ago, Mint buffet garden in Sunnybank Plaza had been closed down. There was a notice about the closure for renovations. I think that was about the changes of ownership. The restaurant would be a kind of buffet garden. But early in this week, I went to Sunnybank for dinner. I saw Mint buffet garden became Golden Lane which is a new Chinese restaurant. I have heard a rumor about a new restaurant will open in Sunnybank. I read their website. This restaurant will have Yum Cha and Cantonese Style Cuisine for lunch and dinner. This sounds attractive for me. I will find a chance to try this restaurant.
Recently, I ate dessert in 8 Street in Garden City. That is somethings new for me; that is Chinese Egg Pancake. That sounds food from Northern China; even I had not seen that kind of Chinese Egg Pancake when I was in Hong Kong. So, I was keen to try that.
A few weeks, I bought one from there. That was the Traditional Chinese Style which is the cheapest one, $5.90. There are some choices too, such as Rolling Char Siu and Salmon Lover. However, that is more expensive. The one I ordered had sesame seed, shallot, traditional sauce, crisp, and Chinese ham sausage. That was quite of contents. I love the sauce inside. I found this kind of Chinese Egg Pancake is very similar to a crepe.
Moreover, if you want to buy one, please spare a few minutes for them to make a pancake. It took me five minutes for waiting last times. That was ok because that is a kind of fun to watch them cook a pancake. There is a big flat pan. And then the chief added the mixture of egg in the pan and sliced it carefully to make the mixture being a thin layer. Then the chief put the ingredients on the top of that. I found that looks like doing an act performance.
If you have not had this kind of Pancake before, I think that is fun to have it and watch the process of making a pancake!
