Mi + Mian
When it comes to this home-style Chinese cuisine, more of the same is a good thing.
It might be mere months old; however Bakery Lane remains the pint-sized Fortitude Valley precinct that keeps on giving. Their latest gift is to your stomach, courtesy of the crew behind West End's Fat Dumpling. Meet Mi + Mian.
Traditional Chinese fare is on offer, of course, though anyone who has been to the Boundary Street mainstay won't be complaining about getting more of the same over on Ann Street. There's just something about their home-style cuisine that tantalises the tastebuds and keeps loyal customers coming back from more. With that in mind, a new outlet on the other side of the city can only be a good thing.
Staying simple, both food and décor wise, serves Mi + Mian well — even with a changing menu that retains the staples but mixes up the flavours and ingredients. Rice bowls, noodle soups and salads of the week are always a given, as are the northern Chinese pan-fried buns that are the closest they has to a must-devour specialty. Then, grab an outdoor table to soak in everything the laneway eatery has to offer, or head home with some of the best takeaway you could hope for.
