Moochowchow, Ponsonby

 My friend who forgot about my birthday demanded meeting me as I was ignoring her calls. So I chose Moochowchow, which is quite close to where I work. Fantastic atmosphere and service. The placed looked modern and soon after 7pm, people started to fill up. We ordered Red 
curry 
of
 slow 
cooked 
beef 
rib ($30) which was just okay.


We had to send back the Asian 
greens stir fried ($10) as it was way too salty. The chef must've tipped over the salt bottle! Insane! But the waiter was kind and apologetic and we had our new dish within 5 minutes. Fantastic. The oyster sauce went well with the greens.

I was looking forward to this Five
 spiced 
crispy
skinned 
chicken

 (half $20) but it was not what I imagined. Skin wasn't soo crispy, there were too much breast meat which was a bit chewy and the vinegar flavor was too strong. We didn't know why the waiter told us that these are small plates and he recommend ordering four dishes between two of us as the amount was enormous. I think this was meant to be a fusion Thai but nothing exciting happened... So me and my friend had to go somewhere else to finish the night... (to be continued to the next post :D)
