Prawn CrackersLan Yuan Peking Duck Pancake

Peking Duck Pancake (4pc) $16

Shortly after a plate of complimentary prawn crackers, we were served the Peking Duck Pancakes. A generous portion of duck meat and hoisin sauce wrapped in freshly-made pancake pastry.


Handcrafted Steamed Chicken Dumplings (8pc) $10

Hand crafted steamed chicken dumplings were delicious. Wrapped with a melt-in-your-mouth fresh dough skin and packed with great taste, I could have had dumplings all night. No doubt this was my favourite dish.
