I don’t know why but bloody mary’s always seem to taste better when they're served with a mini umbrella – it was perfectly spiced with a lemony tang and a tasty prelude for the delicious dumplings to follow.
The “net” prawn and crab spring rolls were delicate and delicious. The perfectly prepared prawn dumplings were a favourite, as were the Shanghai pork. But the highlight for me was the duck pancakes – crispy skin and tender meat quacked perfectly together in the the pancake with hoisin sauce and shallots.
It is no wonder Miss Chu’s popularity is spreading like swine flu – this new Bondi location is perfect for a post-beach snack or pre-drink dine on dumplings but the main meals were as impressive as the service - not completely bad, but nothing to write home about either.
The Bitter: The staff were friendly but perhaps not to each other because our orders didn’t make the kitchen.... twice. The Sweet: A night time take on yum cha and endless soy sauce puts a smile on this pig's snout. The damage: Moderate – cocktail, wine and shed loads of food for about $50 per pig.
