Pearl City Chinese Restaurant

Today we bid farewell to another member who is going over to greener pastures, to Canberra! We gathered at the local Returned Services League aka RSL in town to celebrate and farewell Mick.

The Chinese meals here at the RSL was not the best, but it wasn't the worst either. I can think of lots of other places in Wagga that served terrible Chinese meals, so I can't complain. Meh!! Just drooled, daydreaming of  a ten course wedding banquet... you should see some of the wedding dishes in Chinese restaurants in the big cities, the presentation and the dishes itself are to die for. I need to gatecrash a Chinese wedding banquet soon!

Meanwhile, back to my story, for a $8.00 lunch special, you get a hot meal served in a "I no complain" as Con the fruit seller would say on TV....Sounds good to me. I had the honey chicken with fried rice, yes, it's boring old stuff I know but I was craving something sweet. I don't mind it, I think it's edible, not like some places with old rehashed fried rice. The deep fried chicken in batter covered in honey sauce tasted freshly cooked. That's always a win. And after lunch, we can play a little pokies and drink beers all afternoon. Humph!!! By the way, I lost ten bucks... Tony said to me, "it was not lost Jackie, it's in the pokie machine"... such a wise man he is! Sigh!

Pearl City is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinners, for eat in or takeaway. Lunch specials are $8 from 12 - 2pm daily.

Our lunch specials, I did not get carried away snapping everyone's meals this time, there were twenty of us.. hehehe... you can't take me anywhere....

Oh yeah, and before I forget, Wagga RSL now have rooms, the motel side is on the other side of building. I have not seen the insides of rooms so I can't tell you if it's good or bad, but it is fairly new building and so rooms should be clean and decent looking. A courtesy bus is also available for members to and from club.

This is not an advertorial for RSL Wagga and I paid for my own lunch and drinks. Cheers!
