Hoh Won

Every now and again you get lucky. Sneaking behind a dumpster on Caledonian Lane, taking a leak when you’re bladder is bursting and not getting caught by passing boys in blue, despite the steam from the stream trickling down the alley. The 7th nugget in the 6 pack at the Golden Arches. Going home with a lady or fella to their place to… errr… sleep and avoiding the $80 cab ride home to Cherrybrook.

Extremely privileged to have been introduced to a local delicacy and consider it a leprechaun, a rare find. Hoh Won is something to be cherished. Cheap, cheerful, but most of all, damn good. So good I’d miss the grand opening for the new McFeast burger for the food here. ShanDong Chicken feels like the extra shake after relieving yourself, if you know what I mean. Colgate white poultry meat, skin that inch by inch has been crisped, lathered in a light soy and rice wine marinade that’s infused with garlic, spring onion and gentle slap in the face from fresh red chillies. Yum yum yum yum yum. Plenty of other choices such as the honey sweet Peking Pork Ribs, Chicken Wet Fried Noodles that sounds like Homosexual Hooker Good Times with a lovely, starchy, chicken stock gravy and won ton noodle soup.

Whilst the décor makes you feel like growing a mean set of handle bars, squeezing into denim flares and popping that oversized collar to fit in with the deliberate 70s feel, cab it and lead to the Hoh Won direction. I guarantee you will get lucky.
