Top Choice, Market City, Haymarket

Top Choice, Market City, Haymarket
Wednesday 28 June, 2006

In need of some cheap & cheerful tucker before the Coldplay concert at the Entertainment Centre, we decided to hit Chinatown. After walking through Chinatown we ended up at Market City Shopping Centre - above Paddy's Market.

The best thing about Market City is the shops stay open till 7pm every night - even later on Thursdays. So we had a browse around and took in all the factory outlets on L2 before arriving on L3 - the Food Court. Don't be put off by the Food Court scenario - this is not your average shopping centre food court - it has some real finds and I can highly recommend this one.

Top Choice was the only outlet consistently busy during our visit and Mr Delivery arrived to collect several home delivery packages. The display pictures are huge and are a true reflection of the size of the dishes. The choice is impressive with categories including omlettes, seafood, pork, vegetarian, lamb, beef, chicken, noodles, soups and entrees. The choice is......Top Choice!

You order and pay at the counter and it is written in Chinese for the kitchen. It's authentic Chinese cuisine and I could not go past the Szechwan Prawns (Hot) and Eggplant & Minced Pork. Within 10 - 15 minutes I was called back to the counter to collect my steaming plate of prawns resting on a hot plate in the shape of a cow. They looked so good I almost wanted to tuck into them then & there!

Not long afterwards I was waved back to pick up the Eggplant & minced pork. Equally as impressive and served in a gorgeous little terracotta pot. Both dishes were hot and spicy and were served with complimentary bowls of rice. For less than $20 this was a great meal and filled the spot before we danced and sang our way through the Coldplay concert.

I'll be back the next time I am heading to the Entertainment Centre or Capitol Theatre.
