Yee Foong Barbecue Restaurant
196 Wickham Street
I'm here today to try out their
Claypot Chicken and Mushroom Rice
The claypot rice aka 煲仔饭 is usually a dinner dish in the southern regions of China, Singapore and Malaysia. It is typically served with Chinese sausage and vegetables. More often than not, the rice is cooked in the claypot first and cooked ingredients like diced chicken and Chinese sausage are added in later. Traditionally, the cooking is done over a charcoal stove, giving the dish a distinctive flavour. Some places serve it with dark soya sauce and also dried salted fish. Salted fish enhances the taste of the claypot chicken rice, depending on the diner's preference.
The dish includes a tasty iced lemon drink and these oranges!
Super value for money!
Shop owner is a friendly Vietnamese-Chinese old lady.

from Queen Street (Brisbane CBD)
surviving well under strong competition
still gets my support every now and then
For a change, let's look at WEST END
700m away across Victoria Bridge
I've selected 3 main sushi bars
All prices are more or less around the average $2.50 mark
Due to differences in the variety offered
I can't compare apples to apples, oranges to oranges
However, you can trust me when I tell you its friggin' good sushi!
Long queues during weekday lunch hours
Fresh lettuce gives the perception of freshness
Great variety to choose from
Taste is not fantastic/awesome, but its not awful
However, fresh tuna DO NOT go with cucumber!
Some restaurants can be too carelessly creative
Egg Salad with Avocado
The rice does not have enough vinegar
Seaweed is soggy
California Roll is a sushi that CANNOT go wrong
and they screwed it
Variety is pathetic
However egg mayo salad is perfect
Salmon & Cucumber
As you can see from the photo, there is lesser rice and ingredients
It is definitely a smaller/lighter sushi (same price however)
No complaint about the taste
but this is hell-of-a-troublesome sushi to eat...
1. Unroll the packaging. Place takaokaya "nori" or roasted seaweed seam-side down on flat surface. Peel away the seal to the right as shown.
2. Remove wrapper from rice. Place rice onto the exposed seaweed.
3. Peel away the remaining seal and starting from the right, roll the rice up in the seaweed.
However, the seaweed is absolutely fantastic!
Here are the final results...
TSURU scoring 58 points winning the competition
Their sushi gives the most satisfaction in comparison with the other two
However if I had $2.50 to spend on sushi,
my top choice is still LR (Light Roll) Sushi from Brisbane CBD Adelaide Street
