What I was not expected is Pu'er - a sleek style Chinese eatery with it's modern food and of course the variety of unique teas'.
With their extensive menu, there was no time to be indecisive as of course, I'm a "I want to try EVERYTHING on the menu" kinda girl.
The pure tea's unique to Pu'er include their Osmanthus Phoenix giving an intense yet slight bitter taste with a sweet aroma.
Osmanthus Phoenix - $9
The Jasmine Pearl, as an iced tea version with hints of papaya and pineapple was very refreshing and my favourite of the two.
Jasmine Pearl - $9
Who knew you'd EVER find Crispy Har Gow . Whilst super crunchy on the outside, it's still got the chewy steamed skin closer to the succulent prawns bringing back what you'd find traditionally.
Crispy Har Gow - $9
The Pan Fried Gyoza whilst having that beautiful crusty base was average, though one mouthful combined with the vinegar and pickled ginger provided more flavour.
Gyoza - $10
From the "Street Food" section, the Wagyu Tacos were one of the highlight dishes at Pu'er and one I would recommend to order. Very tender wagyu beef packed full of flavour with greens encased in the soft buns. Don't be fooled by the chilli though, it just adds that kick of flavour.
Wagyu Tacos - $16
Hong Kong Mini Burger - $15
Shandong Chicken - $29
The Three Cup Drunken Duck was a little on the sweet and salty for my liking, though the flesh falling off the bone is always a delight. Honestly like having "pulled duck" instead of "pulled pork".
Three Cup Drunken Duck - $26
Craig highly recommended their Chocolate Brownie, which whilst dense, wasn't as sweet as it looked. The salted almond praline & palm sugar ice cream wasn't too heavy and the banana & red wine jus was a strange mix I hadn't had before.
Chocolate Brownie - $10
My FAVOURITE dish of the day so happened to be the last. The Coconut & Kaffir Sorbet had textures of coconut within it, as well as fresh plump coconut flesh with neither flavour over powering. I wish there was more, or even if they sold this by the tub! The black sticky rice I could give or take, and or course we had to take shots of coconut water in our tea cups.
Coconut & Kaffir Sorbet - $10
Overall Pu'er has left a great impression of the food they offer. All dishes were very flavoursome, but hands down the Wagyu Tacos and Coconut & Kaffir Sorbet shone.
I am also dreaming of the wagyu beef in the deep fried mantao bun and am in love with the decor. If you do decide to come here, I highly recommend in a small group. Their mains are value for money, and more people means more variety, especially with the amount of small meals and teas' they offer.
A Little Bit Of Tang dined as a guest at Pu'er on behalf of Quinton Van Schalkwyk & Siev Gour although all my opinions are 100% my own, honest and unbiased. Please refer to my disclosure policy for more information.
