Friday evening Eat Street,St George's square Launceston. Three food vans. Lots of families enjoying the sun. DSC07653.JPG .

My first food was from this van. Eggplant and haloumi bun.Was very nice. They are always at the Harvest Market.

The third van was a seafood van often seen around Tasmania. It has good food but I was full.

My first dish was from here.

It was meant to be Asian BBQ pork on rice but they had run out of BBQ pork so it was stir fry pork in a noodle soup. Didn't look great but very tasty.

The next dish was from Khao San Street food. Stir fry basil chicken on rice. Quite bland.

We went out for Tim Sum, Dim Sum or Yum Cha, depending on your preference, at the Emperors Kitchen. This is a restaurant south of the river in Perth that has a good reputation for their Sunday offerings. My son had tried to go there at 12:30 last week and gave up after waiting about 90 minutes for a table. Today we went just before 11:00 and still had to wait about 10 minutes.

As usual lots of different small serves so just a few selections below. Descriptions are as per the menu.

King Prawn & Pork Sui Mai at the top of the photo and Shanghai Pan Fried Juicy Pork Buns


We had already eaten some of the Chili & Pepper Squid Tentacles plus King Prawn Rice Flour Rolls - the prawns were battered before being placed into the rice flour rolls.


Turtle shaped Baked Pineapple Buns stuffed with Custard


I have never seen these before. Deep Fried Almond Egg Yolk Balls. The egg yolks were still runny - extra nice. We couldn't figure out the green colour. It was certainly not Pandan and didn't taste like green tea - maybe just green food colouring.


All of it was excellent.
