My friend’s family has just opened a new takeaway in Mt Eden and we were lucky enough to be given a sneak preview of the food as test subjects before the grand opening.
The family were the previous owners of the iconic Diamond Takeaways on Great South Road, famous for its consistent and tasty food, so we knew we were in for a treat.
My husband and I are sometimes disappointed when we get Chinese takeaways as often places fill their food with the cheaper carbs like noodles or rice, but were pleasantly surprised by the generous amount of protein in each dish. The portion sizes were huge as well – two dishes were enough for both of us for dinner, as well as leftovers for hubby’s lunch the next day (and we are big eaters). It is also good to see that the menu offers half-size portions of their meals.
We ordered the steak hor fun which was full of juicy pieces of meat and slippery, savoury noodles.
We also ordered the Singapore fried noodles which had a nice, gentle curry heat and heaps of prawns and BBQ pork.
Overall, a tasty and filling meal. I’m sure we will be going back soon!
