EAT & DRINK

CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON

Traditional Chinese food delivery is what Canggu has been craving for the past few years. Thankfully, Seminyak’s dim sum mogul Happy Chappy has opened an outlet Happy Chappy Express in Berawa to satisfy our need in dinners eaten straight out of cartons, eyes glued to the screens with Game Of Thrones, or Versailles, or Stranger Things, or whatever your current drug of choice is.

However the little birds spread some rumors there are new items in the menu, so we’ve decided to break the routine and actually go eat out at the pretty red lacquer box, complete with silk tassels and lanterns. It’s all the way authentic Chinese dining experience, only there is no added MSG used – which sounds almost like a revolution, right?

We went a bit gila and ordered it all: quite a few baskets of dumplings (those pork ones were a killer!), the batter-fried prawns ? and the prawns in sesame and honey (OH.MY.GOD), plus the roasted duck and chicken, half and half – the real imported fatty birds, so bloody sinfully good! To polish it all off we’ve ordered a dessert – those fluffy Chinese doughnuts that should be dipped in condensed milk before flying into your mouth. Bye-bye, waistline – you’ve never existed anyways! ?

Yes, it was a feast, but once in a while, you deserve to come out of your Chinese-dinner-in-a-box box. Don’t worry, you’ll still get some boxes to put in your fridge – ’cause it’s simply impossible to finish that kind of meal in one go without leaving something on the plates. Hello, Netflix, you’ll have a perfect company tonight!
