If ever there was a sympathy meal, this was it. Wei Win, the poor, neglected Chinese middle child in Kingsford. Sandwiched between Chong Hing and Honey Wok, Wei Win gets no loving. This despite following their neighbour’s discounted meal deals for multiple dishes from a long select list. With 4 people, it’ll roughly equate to $10 per person for a cooked meal. Bargain. So what’s not to like?
Saturday night, this Chinese street corner was pumping and getting a table for a group of 10 at our first two choices was going to be more difficult than reasoning with your girlfriend to watch the cricket over Desparate Housewives. Desparation, time and not to mention curiosity as to why this place had no one inside got the better of the group and decided to give this business some custom.
Despite being well feed, and service extremely good from the attentive staff, the dishes were hit and miss. Black pepper beef perhaps suffered from lack of turnover, the texture not quite right. Crispy chicken a bit dry, the spicy salt chicken better but a little oily. Prawn omelette ok, as was the fish fillets in sweet corn sauce, spicy salt flounder well drained, crunchy and as you’d expect from other restaurants.
A bit of consistency would see Wei Win rival the two next door and with it bring in the hungry and unwilling to wait.
