rasa chinta on Waiora Rd, Heidelberg Heights

We meant to go to jade kingdom for supposedly famous hokkien mee on Sunday but found that it was closed, but was pleasantly surprised that rasa chinta was open. gav had the roast duck rice, above. It was really really good! the skin was nice and crispy, and meat was tender. The only thing missing was the sauce that usually comes with it when we have it in malaysia...
I had this ham chim peng $1.50 each [chinese dooughnut?] which is a deep fried bun with a sweet mashed red bean paste filling and sesame seeds on top. forgive the bad photo, it was taken with my sony ericsson. It was really yummy, especially after crisping up in a toaster oven for a minute or two.
and I had the pineapple thai fried rice, above, which was excellent too. It had just the right amount of "almost burnt-ness" and great flavours with lots of bits of chicken, shrimp, egg and bean sprouts. Although fried rice is easy to make at home, it's not easy making a really good one like this! One would need a proper wok, with a really big flame. This definitely cannot be done on a hot plate!

I'd definitely come here again to try the other menu items.
