Happy Cook Chinese Restaurant

Tucked quietly away in Melbourne's outer east, Happy Cook Chinese Restaurant prepares a peking duck that would stand its own against the best restaurants in Beijing. Often reserved for special occasions because of its hefty price tag, Happy Cook serve up a mouthwatering two course feast for a price that wont break the bank.

First up is the peking duck rolls. Beautifully crisp skin, tender melt in the mouth flesh. There is an art form to assembling the pancake wraps correctly to ensure the juices remain encased. Place a piece of duck meat on your pancake along with a slice of cucumber and spring onion. Drizzle a generous spoonful of the home made hoi sin sauce over the breast, roll the pancake and enjoy. The combination of flavours in the mouth is sensational. Though it is quite easy to overindulge, save room for the award winning noodles.

The pancakes are quickly followed by a second course homemade hand pulled noodles stir fried with the remaining duck breast. The noodles are soft, delicious and melt in your mouth. They are unlike any noodles I have ever tasted. Happy Cook in fact once held the Guinness world record for most hand pulled noodles prepared in a minute.

For around the $60 mark per duck, which would comfortably feed two people, Happy Cook offer two sittings, 5pm and 8pm. Unlike many other restaurants that offer peking duck, there is no need to order the duck ahead of time. If duck is not your thing, choose one of the many other dishes from the menu.
