New Hong Kong: Auchmill Road, Aberdeen
DILEMMA. Transform my son into Amy Winehouse for a Halloween party or cook supper? Hmm. Time to dive into my takeaway menu box.
And our meal turned out to be a real trick and treat affair.
The trick was a puzzling starter called crispy wun tun (£2.80). Spring roll pastry all folded up neatly and fried... but with no filling! Fine, but odd. The pancake rolls (£2) were teeny weeny, but with plenty of taste.
However, the mains were the real treat.
One bite of the fillet steak Teriyaki (£5.10) and we knew it just had to be shared out evenly, or there’d be trouble.
It was a melt-in-the-mouth delight. Tender slices of meat in a sweet gravy. And the house special of crispy noodle chow mein (£5.60) was almost as good. King prawns, pork, chicken and beef in a flavoursome sauce. Even the chicken curry (a free meal with orders over £20) was as good as any we’d had. All this was mopped up with chips (£1.80) and egg-fried rice (£1.90).
