After watching Vareki (the latest Cirque du Soliel show to arrive in Oz) we were in need of a good feed. Watching those performers on stage is enough to work up an appetite!

Fox Golden Century is one of favourite places to eat but......the service is usually hit & miss, sometimes it's so busy that the queue goes down the stairs, the Chinese guests are whisked ahead of you, there are only 2 female toilets for a restaurant that sits a couple of hundred people, your order is delivered all at once (or in rapid succession), and don't be surprised if the wrong dishes are delivered to your table. Have I turned you off?

If you can get past this and maybe visit on a quieter night I think you will be pleasantly surprised. The food is seriously good and if tonight's example is anything to go by - we enjoyed a feast (there were leftovers) plus wine for $35 pp.

We started with san choy bow and fried dim sim - this was delivered to the table in record time and we devoured both dishes as if we hadn't seen food for 48 hours. Within rapid succession (and this is a pet peeve of mine) we received every other dish:

- Braised chicken with ginger & shallots
- Wasabi beef
- Beancurd Grandma style
- Poached Chinese broccoli with oyster sauce

It's hard to know where to start when everything comes to the table at once. You don't want to run the risk of it getting cold so you find yourself gobbling down everything so you don't miss out!

I think I have learnt my lesson with introducing people to my favourite dish (Beancurd Grandma style) - just because I love it doesn't mean everyone else will. I tend to talk up this dish so much that people are almost salivating in anticipation but it rarely lives up to their expectations (note to self: back off on the beancurd).

At the moment my new favourite dish is Wasabi beef and it is a speciality of Fox Golden Century - be prepared, your sinuses will be cleared in moments. The beef is so tender you could cut it with a spoon but they provide you with a serrated steak knife anyway.

I'm a fan of Golden Century - the food is consistently good and I plan on eating Beancurd Grandma style for many more years!
