It’s that time of the year again when bean counters (in Australia) are busy predicting the future. That basically means I’ve got very little time to blog.
Renovated Fortitude Valley Station
So for the purpose of keeping this blog alive I’m posting some photos of Brisbane’s premier Chinatown and some of our favourite yum cha dishes.

Sharks' Fins for sale (not very eco friendly)
There are a lot better yum cha houses around Brisbane but we go to Chinahouse in Fortitude Valley for the convenience. It’s very central. Parking is ample. Their dishes are good (but could be better). The important thing to remember is to get to the restaurant early enough to guarantee freshness and to avoid long queues.
