Best Known For
Cantonese roast duck, pickles, peanuts and cucumber, with sides of mixed vegetables and steamed rice.
Modern Chinese fare with a south-eastern influence awaits discerning Elsternwick diners at Yu Chu on Glen Huntly Road. Specialising in Cantonese-style roasts, this restaurant oozes a moody vibe of exposed brick, polished concrete and traditional accents; beckoning diners in with plump roast ducks hanging in the window and dumplings lovingly prepared by the owners’ mother. With a name meaning ‘imperial kitchen’ expect dishes like Peking duck pancakes to start, or pork and prawn dumplings with dipping sauce; then delve into sautéed lobster, served on a bed of egg noodles, with ginger sauce. Roast pork with crackling and perfectly rendered fat may entice, with sides of steamed mixed vegetables and steamed rice; or dip a spoon into shredded duck laksa, with Hokkien noodles and vermicelli.
