Box Hill is known to be the center of the Chinese community in Melbourne and so, restaurants and cafes have to be up to scratch to meet their customer demands. The street is not as bustling compared to Kingsway Avenue but nevertheless, it made me feel as though I was back in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Just about every shop has Chinese characters embedded in their door signs and walls!
And of course, the streets were packed full of people on Saturday and it is especially packed in the malls. Saturdays seems to be everyone's shopping day and guess who was lucky enough to rub shoulders with more than a handful of the locals?;)
On to the food story of this post, us Malaysians need to have our fix and where else than a popular little shop on the main street? This shop sells an assortment of pastes and food unique to Malaysia so if you are not sure what to have for dinner, popping over might be a good option.
