Obsession Restaurant & Bar | Little Stanley Street, SOUTH BRISBANE QLD 4101

The both of us have recently made friends with the flu virus, which somehow led us to a sudden urge for Chinese food. The other travel bunnie wanted a stir fried dish with loads of garlic, and I just wanted to have Chinese food for comfort because mum was an hour drive away.

As neither of us felt like going anywhere too far away, we wandered over to Obsession at South Bank.

I was shocked at the prices when I opened the menu. It's always been at the back of my mind that Chinese food is really affordable in Brisbane. Sure the d├ęcor of the restaurant was slightly fancier than your average Chinese take away joint around the corner, and there were fresh water lilies on the tables and all...but almost charging almost thirty dollars for Mongolian lamb? I told the other travel bunnie there and then that the food better be good, otherwise I would not be a happy camper.

Well what do you know - the food turned out to be extremely tasty. We ordered just the right amount of food. Between the two of us, we had the Forbidden Palace Pork ($24) – lightly fried bite-sized pork w' fruit and special sweet & sour sauce, Peking Style Black Pepper Chicken ($26) – wok style chicken w' black pepper and lemongrass, served with crisped green leaves and fresh lime and seasonal greens ($18). The flavours of the dishes were impeccable and I strongly recommend the Peking Style Black Pepper Chicken.

We rarely finish our meals with completely empty plates, but that night, we left with three empty plates on the table and two very content stomaches.

Total Bunnie Dollars Spent: $71.50
