Written on Tea, Sandy Bay

I've been meaning to make it to Written on Tea for ages, and finally got there. I loved it - will definitely be heading back again soon! The service was a bit patchy, but the food more than made up for it.

Spring onion pancake. Utterly delicious - I'm planning to try and make these soon (there's a great guide here).


Stir-fried roast duck with basil leaves. Pretty tasty but it was pieces of a whole duck still on the bone - J wasn't so keen on fussing around with the bones.


Fried rice with Chinese sausages and vegetables. Lovely.


Xiaolong bun-steam juicy bun. Otherwise known as xiao long bao/soup dumplings, these were fantastic! They were soupier than the ones we had in Sydney, but the skins weren't quite as good.


I sampled a bit of a friend's tofu dish (I've forgotten the name, sorry). It was fantastic, with a good amount of chilli heat.


Eggplant filled with minced pork. This was ok, but the sauce was very very salty.

  1. Ordered the pancake last time and thought I'd have to eat it all myself (but I'd had it before and knew it was a must have!) since we assumed it had egg in it and Tim couldn't have it. Pleasantly surprised to find it didn't!

    The rice was super salty I thought, wouldn't order it again.
