I’ve been looking for a Chinese restaurant close to work that would serve a good hearty porridge and I was excited to hear that Natural Nine did just that.
I’ve been looking for a Chinese restaurant close to work that would serve a good hearty porridge and I was excited to hear that Natural Nine did just that. Last week, a few colleagues and I ventured into the Casino and sat under vibrant red and black lanterns for lunch.
I knew I was going to order the pork meatball congee but then I noticed they did oysters too! I ordered two steamed rock oysters with black garlic and shallots ($4 each) as a starter. I was not disappointed. I did want to order more but was informed that the congee was quite substantial.
You could share the congee if you were ordering more dishes but if it’s just the one dish, one person can easily be satisfied with the serving size. The pork congee ($17) was pretty to look and full of flavour. I would have liked to have had some thinly sliced ginger to accompany the congee, and may ask if they could provide some next time round. I plan to return and try their Sichuan chilli chicken wings and yee mee prawn noodle soup.
Open from noon, Natural Nine is located at Casino Canberra, 21 Binara Street, Canberra.
