DAZZLING flavour combinations, authentic Chinese recipes and fresh quality produce reign supreme at Lee Palace restaurant.
Lee Palace owner and head chef Thomas Wai has run the restaurant for the past eight years and has specialised in authentic Cantonese cooking for more than two decades.
While the menu is dotted with classic favourites like fried rice and satay beef, traditional dishes such as beef ho fun and curry laksa are available for those well-versed in Asian cuisine.
Start your Lee Palace culinary journey with the free prawn cocktail and indulge in tasty entrees such as spring rolls, crab claws and fried wonton.
The restaurant’s current special is mud crab done Singaporean style in a sensational chilli sauce (pictured).
Appearing on your plate with the colour of a crisp orange sunset, the mud crab dish tastes as good as it looks.
The meat was sweet, soft and complemented by the sauce beautifully.
It was also excellent value; there aren’t many places in Perth where you can buy a mud crab for $30, let alone have it cooked to perfection.
Other must-haves include sumptuous szechuan beef poured on to a sizzling hot plate in front of you and a gorgeous sizzling mango duck dish that will leave your tastebuds tingling long after the plate is gone.
Small but important touches like the use of MSA-grade beef and seasonal ingredients make all the difference to Thomas’s dishes and have kept droves of regulars coming back for more.
Take-away is available.
