Another day without a fridge meant another chance to explore our local takeaway establishments. This time, Old Kingdom, a slightly shabby (and thus authentic) Chinese restaurant which serves up well-priced Cantonese dishes. On a Sunday night they were bustling with large tables of Chinese families digging into the restaurant’s speciality – Peking duck. You have to pre-order but from my quick glance of the dining room, everyone had planned their trip to Old Kingdom just for the duck.

Our meal-on-the-lounge-room-floor consisted of a nice salt and pepper crispy skinned chicken and a slightly oily vegetable and tofu stirfry, with white rice, all for around $25.
