Mr Pings, Parramatta

Scowl all you like, but after almost 21 years of having Chinese food, the last thing I want to see when I go out is Chinese food. Don't get me wrong, I'm one of those guys who genuinely thinks mum's cooking is best but I just need something different. So when we rock up to the gazillioth Chinese eatery that week...

Located right next door to Parramatta Westfields, Mr Pings pulls in everyone, from suits, to shoppers but it's mainly a local asian crowd that fills up the seats. It doesn't have much in the way of ambience but it does have a slick black colour palate going on so I suppose that's a touch more than your average eatery but it's the window side hanging ducks that sends us into a frenzy.

Chicken Congee 8.8
The congee there is superb. Chicken is ridiculously tender and giving and you pretty much just get congee next with nothing else but I'm not complaining.

Fish Fillet, Preserved Egg and Coriander Congee 12.8
Fish congee is a little more lively with hits of fresh coriander super soft white fillets of fish and preserved egg. 

Deepfried Dough Stick 2.5
You Tiao or Chinese fried breadsticks are the perfect accompanyment, a mix and match of the clean qualities of congee with the unctuous crispiness of fried doughnuts.

Braised Seafood and Beancurd in Claypot 19.8
The seafood definitely was not fresh as you get that frozen resistance from the prawns but it's jam full of scallops, ling fillets and prawns with some bean curd to mop up all that delicious sauce. I'm happy.

There's no wowing moments, prices are average and it's pretty much what you'd expect but the dishes are really tasty. Even though I've went on and on about not wanting Chinese food, my parents love this place which makes me love it so I guess everyone's happy.

No, we aren't the most amazing gastronomes or chefs. Heck, half our team doesn't even know how to cook... well. However, what we really love is eating. And lots of it. We enjoy that occasional freebie, filling up that craving for a midnight snack and finding a 20 in our pockets that we thought we never had, and using that as an excuse to go out eating. As we battle the ongoing war on uni student poverty, we'll bring you the most swoon worthy recounts of our latest foodie adventures.
