Ten Ten Kitchen is a Chinese restaurant located along the busy Albany Highway eatery strip in Vic Park and I remembered it as being the first Chinese restaurant that I ate in when I first came to Australia 15 years ago (It’s been around for ages!). The inside is very simple and very green due to its decor; and gets very crowded during lunch time especially on the weekend.
Ten Ten is famous for its cheap and tasty Hainanese Chicken Rice which only costs $7 and also their special menu for students (a variety of dishes with steamed rice all on one plate). In general, their lunch menu prices range from $7 – $14.
We had the following for lunch:
- Black Pepper Honey Pork with Fried Rice
- Hainan Chicken Rice
- Hainan Fried Mi Fun (rice noodles)
- Dry Char Siew (pork) Wanton (dumpling) Noodle
I had the BBQ pork noodle that day, the noodle was tangy which I like and had a huge serve of bbq pork which I couldn’t finish (they all went to my friend’s big stomach). It also came with a bowl of dumpling soup to complement the dish. This is one of my favourite dish. The Chicken Rice was as usual a delicious dish with the oily rice and steamed chicken on the side with a bowl of soup, also another favourite.
The food came out fairly quick after we placed our order which is a bonus but don’t expect much in terms of service. Overall, it is the place to visit for fast and reasonably priced food for lunch. A great place for some good ol’ Chinese food.
