This post follows on from my previous post. After Amy and I went to yum cha for lunch, we went and picked up some doughnuts (more on that in the next post), went and saw Zoolander 2 (not as good as original Zoolander), and rambled around some shops until we thought we were able to face dinner. For dinner we went to Tian Ran, a Chinese vegan restaurant.
We both started with some Sweetcorn and Chicken Noodle Soup ($4.80), which came as big servings. It was so delicious that I accidentally burned my tongue on it because I couldn't wait for it to cool a little! We also had some Pan-Fried Shanghai Dumplings ($4.50), which were nice.
Amy had Beef and Cashews for her main ($13.80), and I had Fried Tofu in Black Bean Sauce ($12.80). I love their black bean sauce, so good! Amy ate all the gross capsicum for me, and I tried a bit of hers. Their beef is very nice, I think it has mushroom in the base. We also shared some Combination Vegetables ($9.80) as well.
We did our valiant best, but we were clearly still a bit full from yum cha, and both ended up getting a takeaway container (which meant we got to have leftovers for lunch that week, so yay!).
Tian Ran used to be only open for dinner, but now it seems that they are open for lunch as well! Though I recommend yum cha for lunch, Tian Ran for dinner. Make the most of it! If you are less sun-phobic, there are lots of beaches to frolic on to help you digest between lunch and dinner. Just remember to stay between the flags!

In my last post, you met Neil de Cat Tyson. He was Amy's first cat. Shortly after Neil came home, Amy adopted a sister for him. This is Cat Sagan.
