We were looking for a nice good value meal on a Sunday night, and were directed to Collins Street Willeton by a local who said there were a few Chinese restaurants located along there. To our surprise there was a restaurant hub with a packed car park, and lines outside some of the restaurants. We checked out the menus at a few of them, and settled on Asian Cuisine, a interesting choice of name but definitely no confusion about the type of food they serve.
It was the cheapest of the restaurants in the area, but that was not the only reason we chose it. It was also busy and although the menu was not as extensive as others it had a few things that were very appealing to us.
The staff in this small restaurant were very friendly, with many of the other patrons clearly regulars.
Clare had not had many good laksas lately, but had a good feeling she would get a good authentic one here. She was not disappointed, as it was tasty, spicy and packed with seafood and bean sprouts.
Rob was drawn to the section on the menu for claypot meals, and eventually chose the salted fish, chicken and Chinese sausage dish. The description reminded him off a similar dish he had earlier this year in Singapore. He was so eager to dig in he burnt his tongue on the first mouthful of rice. The claypot sure keeps the heat in. There were generous portions of boneless chicken over the top, mixed with small amounts of sausage, and barely recognisable bits of salted fish, adding just the right amount of saltiness. These pots can hold quite a bit of food, and the normally insatiable Rob was unable to finish it all.
If we come back to the area we would definitely check out these restaurants again, and it would be tempting to go back to Asian Cuisine.
