T CHOW
Adelaide, South Australia

Top10 Image
Simmered for hours and dripping with juices, T-Chow’s tender duck is drawcard to this Adelaide Chinese restaurant. Smack bang in Moonta Street Chinatown, you are quackers if you pass by this poultry opportunity. While the generous room inside is not rich in style, it’s bank of expensive live seafood tanks hold a wealth of appeal. So crack open the credit card and then you can do likewise to lobster, crab, and other luscious crustaceans.

PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

Dishy duck aside, T Chow’s signature golden shark fin on its front window heralds another specialty. Menus open with “super shark’s fin soup in a steamy pot – enough for two”. Once you start slurping on the rich, viscous broth however, you may decide it is just for one. Further soup scenarios offer pig stomach with pepper, fish balls with seaweed, and some of that duck (shredded) and classically paired with orange (peel). For mains, floor staff eagerly praise the green peppercorn chicken, deep fried quail with pine nuts, oyster omelette, and cabbage rolls with crispy leaves wrapped around mounds of prawns and Chinese mushrooms.

With seating for near 300, tables fill with generations of Chinese families feasting, foodies in the know, and others coming here for authenticity of food over T Chow’s two decades. Weary, worn carpet and battle-scarred walls, signify years of priority placed on dining rather than decorating - often the norm in cheap and cheerful Asian eateries – but somehow T Chow still withholds a sense of grandness.
