I love nothing more than stumbling across a great restaurant. And that’s exactly what happened within the first few hours of arriving in Hobart!
Shu Yuan is a tiny Chinese vegetarian restaurant, hidden within the Bank Arcade. It’s probably the only one in this small sleepy town.
At lunch time, hungry workers flocked to the few tables and others crowded over the bain marie. Zen and I were lucky to grab the first available table without too much hassle… and for $23.50, we tried the curry puffs, which were unusually served with a pleasant sweet honey dressing, a scrumptious spicy Hakka basil noodle soup and rice with green bean delight & lemongrass and mixed veg.
