Salt and pepper deep fried chicken $9.80 (but with upgrade to fried rice $11.80). This has got to be one of my favourite indulgent foods ever! I really enjoyed the chicken rib/wing pieces which were heavily battered in a salt and pepper spice mix and weren't overly oily. So addictive!! I always think that if you're already eating something so unhealthy, you might as well go the whole way! That's why I decided to upgrade to the fried rice which was filled with lightly fried broken egg. I preferred this fried rice compared to other Chinese restaurants because it was more dry.
Dessert house has always been my favourite for Hongkong cafe style food, whether it's for a takeaway meal or eat-in. They also have other standout dishes such as the lemongrass pork chop, or DIY noodles. It's definitely a great choice for those days when you just want to eat casual Chinese meals or just in need a quick and cheap feed.
