Kim Sing: Shop 10 Port Phillip Arcade, Melbourne CBD
This ‘very chinese’ establishment is so far the cheapest place I’ve ever been to in Melbourne. Most mains are only $6, typical Chinese street food, tasty and super fast. Most importantly, they have $4 VEGETARIAN FRIED RICE! OMG!
If you feel like the $4 dish lacks your daily dose of meat though, try your pocket and find 50 cents worth of extra coins to purchase the special or prawn fried rice. They’re not amazing, but they’re not horrible either, in my opinion, the fact that it’s so cheap adds to the flavor, RIIIIGHT?
I tried the prawn fried rice and it reminds me of how asian street food should taste (and be priced) like. The prawns were well cooked and it’s very filling. Other dishes that were shooting out of the kitchen looked gigantic for only $6 - something I will definitely try in the near future. However, don’t expect great customer service here. Maybe it’s something you’d sacrifice for such good cheap food. It is better if you read the menu before ordering, say it clearly, grab your chopsticks or spoon then head to you table, eat, and then go. Kim Sing is always busy on lunch hours, but waiting for your food wouldn’t even be a possible obstacle.
Totally recommending the shit out of this place to every cheapfoodslut I know, or don’t, or whatever. Also, a tip, try the (possibly homemade?) chili jars served on the plastic tables. Go on, you’ll like it.
