Good Food Month in Melbourne is well and truly in full swing with tummy's filling up fast (and refilling again) in venues all over the city.
This year, Man Tong Kitchen is one of these venues, with two Good Food Month offerings for purveyors of authentic chinese food.
For lunch lovers, there's the Man Tong Kitchen Let's Do Lunch. For two or more peeps and $38 each, enjoy a banquet lunch of hot and sour soup with shredded duck, Man Tong’s signature entrees (xiaolong bao, chilli wonton and peking duck), crisp mango prawns, deep-fried fragrant duck stuffed with taro, and milk custard for dessert.
For an evening affair and something more substantial, Man Tong is also offering the Secret Taste of China at $88 a person. We counted up to about 10 dishes in this delicious, waistline expanding banquet. We wont give *all* the good bits away (it's a secret, after all) but you'll salivate over the likes of dongpo pork (Hangzhou-style braised pork belly), Wagyu beef and enoki mushroom rolls with black pepper sauce (incredible - one of our top picks), sweet and sour sauce coral trout fillets (this was a bit too fishy for our liking), fried spicy lobster tail, and fried rice with scallops and black truffle (another fantastic dish). Naturally, as Hu Tong's sister restaurant, you can expect some pretty damn fine xiaolong bao and wontons, too. So much good food.
For bookings, you can just call 03 9686 9888 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. But get in quick because it's only around until the 27th November - and we all know how much time is flying at this stage of the year.
