Mulan is a relatively new Chinese Restaurant that has opened up along the main street of North Hobart at 343 Elizabeth Street.

Tastefully decorated with lanterns, screens and other Asian inspired items and painted in a lovely charcoal/black colour on the outside, Mulan offers a wonderful array of visual stimulation before you even get to the food!

Recently Mr Iced Vovo and I went back for a second visit to Mulan and both times we have not been disappointed with our choice of food or our seating – a comfortable and semi private booth each time. There are four booths down one side of the restaurant that are “themed” Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring.

This time we sat in the Winter booth and opted for Pan Fried Pork Mince Dumplings (6 pieces) and Sui Mai (pork mince, diced prawns, Chinese mushrooms, Spring Onion, Ginger, Sesame Oil, 4 pieces) for entrée. Both dishes were hot and delicious and came with dipping sauce.

For mains we shared with our other guest, my Mum, the Chairman Mao Pork, a delicious dish consisting of pork belly cubes, long green beans, and long red chilies cooked in Shoaxing wine, ginger, star anise and dark soy. There is not much overall sauce to this dish but the pork is both crisp and mouthwateringly tender and succulent. The dish is sprinkled with coarse salt that adds to the taste but watch the chilies as they do pack a punch!

We also had a whole Snapper that is fried and then braised in brown sauce with a chili, ginger spring onion and olive oil. Again this was juicy and succulent and a sizable fish to share. The final dish was the Roast Duck Breast, ostensibly Peking Duck. The duck breast was crisp and succulent and comes sliced accompanied with pancakes, strips of cucumbers and carrot and a rich and delicious Peking sauce. You fill and wrap the pancakes yourself and they are delightful!

There was certainly no room for dessert on this visit but they did sound nice. The staff was friendly and attentive and is fully licensed offering a range of Tasmanian, Australian and International wines. Our bill worked out to be about $43pp which we felt was money well spent I’m certain we will be back again soon to try out a few more of Mulan’s delectable delights!
