With parking being a bit of a hassle and lucky dip, we really could have ended up anywhere along the main road of Hurstville. Our luck would have it that we spotted The Little Chilli House first – its colourful photo covered front window obscuring the view within.

A quick scan of the menu photos plastering the inside walls brought us to order the shiny looking spicy shredded pork; a Northern style Chinese dish with bold vinegar and contrasting sweet flavours.
Tossed with bamboo shoots, shallots and sliced red chilli, this was ideal with a bowl of steamed rice.

The three dishes were unbelievably filling between two as the first meal of the day. The dinner offerings looked even more enticing with some very interesting Northern Chinese specialties – I’ll have to leave this for another big eating session.
