While I was in Western Australia, I had some of the best Chinese food I've had in years. Ok, perhaps the fact that there's awesome Asian food in Perth is no big secret, but it was a revelation for me. It was, after all, my first visit to the area.
If you find yourself in Perth, a visit to Billy Lee's Chinese Restaurant in China Town is a must. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food...wow.
The acid test for a Chinese-food chef is Hot and Sour Soup. Achieving just the right mix of flavours in this dish is difficult, so if the Hot and Sour Soup is good, you know you've got a skilled chef.
The Hot and Sour Soup at Billy Lee's? Simply out of this world.
Go here: Billy Lee's Chinese Restaurant, located at the China Town gate on Roe Street, in the narrow street on the left. Open every day from 5:00pm to 4:00am.
