Wanchai at Lucky Chinatown Mall

We dropped by Wanchai for a light late-afternoon snack. Wanchai is a small Chinese restaurant in the Food Junction (small food court) of Lucky Chinatown Mall. I haven't been to their other branches but as far as I know, their other branches are full-sized restaurants while the one in Lucky Chinatown is more of a food stall with a limited menu.

This "express edition" foodie place serves dimsum (P60-85), congee (P110-P120), noodles (P120-P135), rice meals (P120), and rice bowls (P55).

Larry & Mau Diner (Eton Centris, QC)

Larry & Mau diner is a 24-hour self-service restaurant in ETON Centris Walk. This diner serves burgers, rice meals, meats, tortes, spaghetti, salads, desserts, and alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.


Our group ordered the following: Fish Curry Sambal, Sizzling Sisig, Smoked Boiled Bacon, Seafood Marinara Spaghetti, Fries, Banoffee, and Chocolate Mousse.

The dishes were served in individual bowls and plates. I only got to taste the seafood marinara, fries, choco mousse (my order), and smoked boiled bacon (bf's order) since I felt that it would be improper for me to mess with the food of the other people in our group, given that the servings were good for one only. For those other food, I only have my groupmates' feedback.

Lucy is a beautiful but aloof college student who has several odd jobs. She works at a coffee shop, as well as a human test subject at a research center and as an office clerk. She goes to a bar to drink, pick up sex partners, and occasionally do drugs. Every now and then she visits her good (and seemingly only) friend Birdman. Lucy responds to an advertisement and begins working for a mysterious employer named Clara who gives her a new name, Sarah. First, she serves food in a fancy dinner while wearing white lingerie, looking virginal and fragile compared to the other girls who are taller and black-haired and who wear black lingerie and extreme make-up. She then gets a new assignment from Clara: being drugged into a deep sleep while rich old men do what they want with her naked body.
