WT Chinese Restaurant

Auckland posts: As it was winter, we wanted to eat piping hot soupy food to keep ourselves warm. The food items below were from two visits to the same place.

Braised Beef Tendon Noodle - NZD11 (about MYR30.25 now)

A closer look. Tasty!

Pickled cabbage with pork casserole (with rice) - NZD12.50 (about MYR34.35 now). A lot of cabbage which was fine with us but the portion of rice was too much.

I think I ordered beef and carrot dumplings - NZD11 (about MYR30.25 now). Just the way I like them with thick doughy skins.

Beef with Vermicelli Casserole - NZD12.50 (about MYR34.35 now). The menu says vermicelli but the noodles are glass noodles so I think some places refer to glass noodles as vermicelli.

Recommended items in the menu written on the blackboard. I noticed that the Malaysia Fried Noodle is listed there with the price NZD13 (about MYR35.75 now). No, we did not order that as we aimed for food in hot soup.

I thought I did not take any photos of the eatery so here are two photos from zo ma to to remind me of how the shop looks like. The name used to be 八福餐廳 (Bā fú cāntīng), Auckland. The interior was like the above when we were there but the exterior was a bit different as per photo below which I found later in my stash of photos. The chinese food here tastes authentic to me.

New name: 赖客小吃 (Lài kè xiǎo chī) with a generic English name - Chinese Restaurant and Takeaway. I found this photo later.

  1. I did go for dim sum at a Chinese restaurant in Auckland. Nice but could do with a bit less msg...and the old ladies very loud and rude, they said more authentic like that - like in Hong Kong.

    I also went here, Hong Kong owner or something but they say the chef was from Malaysia:

    1. You went to eat at the expensive dim sum restaurant that we didn't dare go in because didn't want to burn a hole in our pocket. The other one looks like serving some Taiwan food among the wanton noodles. This one I went to the taste is ok, I didn't feel thirsty afterwards.

  3. I actually spotted something else on that blackboard menu. Limon chicken, what the heck was that hahahahaha!!

    As for the food, I think I would like that pickled cabbage with pork casserole claypot. Look at all those pork belly slices! Glorious!

    1. There are chicken, seafood and vegetable meals too since you do not eat beef.

  8. I like that Beef with Vermicelli Casserole and Pickled cabbage with pork casserole. Maybe I like such hot soupy food in cold weathers.

    1. Last time when you were living and studying in USA, there were winters too so what did you eat most of the time during winters?
