Landmark Restaurant for dimsum

I was a little stumped about where to find decent yumcha in Brisbane. A friend suggested Landmark Restaurant in Sunnybank Plaza and several reviews gave it the thumbs-up.

It was the first time I have driven to Sunnybank on my own and I got a little lost, but nothing a couple of quiet minutes with the street directory couldn't fix. And I managed to get a parking spot right next to the entrance to the restaurant. Score! (^0^)/

The mark of a Chinese restaurant are the tanks of seafood they line up for customers to gawk at.
And they had a massive crab in one of them. Poor fella.

I miss properly cooked tofu, cuz it's not particularly easy to handle.
But this tasted decent.
The gravy this came in was a little lumpy though.

Chicken feet may not be the top dimsum dish to most, but it's one of my faves.
You suck the soft cooked skin off and discard the bones.
However, this didn't come with chilli, so it lacked the kick.
Still yummy, nevertheless.

I quite honestly have never tasted a more bland piece of chicken
nor a satay sauce that didn't taste of satay (a curry sauce with a peanut flavour).

This could have done with more filling, but it was decent.

The restaurant was packed to the max by 12pm, which is shocking. It's a Wednesday afternoon! Service was a little slow and the worst part: they didn't have har gao and siew mai. Blasphemy!

The lunch cost AUD$40.40 for 8 dishes shared between 4 people. The dishes were:
  • Century egg and pork congee (served with 2 tiny pieces of youtiao)
  • Steamed tofu with pork and shrimp
  • Steamed prawn paste with mushrooms
  • Savoury chicken feet
  • Satay chicken
  • Sesame coated balls with red bean paste
  • 2 pieces of custard egg tarts
  • 1 pot of Chinese jasmine green tea

Overall, it was decent. Not fantastic. Not amazing. Just oooooook.
