Last thursday I met up with Frankie to have a late dinner. It was about 11:30pm so we decided to go to chinatown, cause there isn't too much else open at that time. We went to superbowl after my birthday a couple weeks ago, and it was pretty good and open late, so we headed there.
It was pretty packed, but there was one table for two outside which we were able to grab! A waiter came up pretty quickly to take our order, but we weren't ready yet, which meant quite a while until another waiter came...
Pipis seem to be the popular dish in Chinatown. They are quite small things, but you get heaps and heaps in a serving. The flavour is quite unique too, i can't really compare it to another dish. It's quite spicy but the heat doesn't linger. Lots of people here order fried bread too, which would be good to soak up all the sauce!
Oh my god these were so good. So sweet and sticky and crispy. You know how sometimes when things are fried and then put in sauce they start to go soggy on the outside? Well these weren't like that at all. I would recommend this dish for sure.
I can't remember what the prices were, but the pipis are on market price (which i think was about $22 that night).
At about midnight we noticed the queues of people waiting for tables, it was amazing!
