Its Chinese name translating to "greedy monkey", Edacity Monkey is a little restaurant along Gouger Street that specialises in Chinese cuisine.

Their Chicken Stir-fried Pancake with Celery is a dish from Northern China that consists of slices of Chinese Pancake stir-fried with chicken and celery. The pancake was crispy without being too tough and the chicken was cooked just right. Providing extra texture was the celery which still retained a bit of bite. The medium level of spiciness we opted for was quite spicy, so those concerned about their tolerance to spice may want to order it mild.

Of a similar style to Dan Dan Noodles, the beef mixture in the Dry Beef Rice Noodles with Soy Bean, Coriander, Spring Onion and Pickle Cabbage gave the dish a meaty texture. The rice noodle was cooked al dente. A particularly nice touch was the soybeans which were fried to give them a delectable toasted taste. To best enjoy the dish, mix everything thoroughly to spread the taste of the sauce throughout the dish.

Both the Beef Onion and Pork & Cabbage Dumplings we ordered had juicy fillings, with the Beef Onion Dumplings having a stronger flavour compared to the pork. We liked that the skin of the dumplings was not too thick or chewy. Chilli sauce, soy sauce and vinegar were provided for diners to make a dipping sauce if they desire to add more flavour.
