East Ocean

The Prince Charles of Chinatown Chinese restaurants. With Golden Century ruling the nest, East Ocean will always play second fiddle. Unless there is a plot to assassinate the queen, it’ll always be a number two finish for the Ocean. An imperial oriental feel to the venue, a grand dining space fit for the underlings.

Start with some royal roast meats: roast pork, duck, BBQ pork, pork crackling and “rubber bands”. Salt and pepper squid is gourmet upped, lightly battered yet crispy and just enough spicy salt coating. Diced beef and black pepper sauce is ever so Charlie’s ass tender, the crispy skinned chicken does not have an Elizabeth wrinkle in sight. Eggplant with minced pork hotpot is raunchier than the Dutchess of Cornwell, as is the salt and pepper pork chop that is Ms Parker Bowles equal.

No shame in being in line for the throne but least it’ll be kept warm until that day.
