I was recommended to a masseuse in Campsie (Universal Kungfu Health House - see brochure below). The massage was very good - the masseuse is a kungfu practitioner and has taught many students over the years. He does not skimp on quality of massage and uses real hand strength to deliver your massage (some places use a lot of oil and vaguely move their hands around without much effect)

I ended up coming across Grab Your Fork's post on First Taste and thought having some Chinese herbal soup with claypot rice sounds like a wonderful meal.
Beamish Street is one of the main streets that run right through Campsie. Just following the street numbers for the buildings makes finding everything relatively simple.

I wanted something sweet to drink however and went for the honey lemon drink.
|Pork, mushroom, chicken feet herbal soup $3.80|
From Two Kg's blog on this restaurant, they explain that the soups here are "double-steamed" which brings out the flavours of each individual ingredient in the soup and thus makes it a lot more flavour-enhanced than simply boiling. According to wikipedia, double-steaming involves putting the ingredients in water in a covered ceramic jar and then steamed for several hours.
|Pork ribs w plum sauce claypot rice $8.80|
- Fantastic herbal soups, highly recommended
- Claypot rice has serious meat to rice ratio issues
- Inexpensive but healthy and hearty meal
- I wish this restaurant was closer to home, would definitely frequent often
On the way home, I grabbed some bbq pork and roast duck from one of the many Chinese BBQ restaurants in Campsie for dinner.
Overall, a good trip out to Campsie.
