Shark Fin Inn
52 Little Bourke Street
Shark Fin is one of my favourite places for Chinese dinners, alongside Crystal Jade. Maybe because I’ve always lived near the city, I rarely venture out into the suburbs for Chinese food at night. But I’m fond of the selection of dishes they have at Shark Fin and Crystal Jade.
Duck Tongue & Jellyfish
Both served cold, the jellyfish is crunchy and fresh.
Crispy skin, but the pancake is a little thick.
The prawns were every bit as crunchy and sweet as they looked, in a fragrant stir-fry with ginger and scallions.
Black pepper steak with plenty of sizzle.
Similar to the prawn stir fry, but with noodles, which have a lovely bite and taste delicious. It’s so good we order an identical portion as soon as it goes.
The steamed fish is fresh and succulent, with coriander, scallion and soy.
A vegetable, beancurd and mushroom pot.
I’ve been to Shark Fin House a few times, and even though they are under the Shark Fin Group, Shark Fin Inn is still my pick, yes it’s the one between Spring and Exhibition.
