Often thought of as one of the best Chinese restaurants in Sydney, Golden Century has been around for as long as I remember. Although booking is advisable, many people with bookings may still find themselves having to wait for a bit while the lady with the intercom at the front tries to find a ready table. However the wait is more than worth it, especially for those seafood lovers. As tradition has it for my family who prefers not to make the trek over the bridge for food, some sort of seafood must be ordered to make the travel worthwhile. Tonight was no different, and we ordered the sliced live abalone steamboat and live parrot fish. Then to ensure everyone would be full, the pork ribs with Peking sauce was ordered, as well as the obligatory King mushrooms with vegetables.

A server then comes to briefly cook the abalone slices in the soup, and serves it evenly to each diner. The abalone slices can then be eaten by itself for its subtle flavours, or dipped into the soy sauce that is infused with freshly cut chillies.
Finally the chinese cabbage is cooked through the soup, and is served to each diner. Personally the soup is my favourite part of the dish, as it is subtly infused with the abalone flavour.
