This morning I went for an interview at RMIT, and immediately after the interview I was told that I was accepted for the course that I applied for! It’s a 5 week intensive course which will teach me how to teach English as a second language! Thank God for this opportunity to upgrade my skills!
So I decided to celebrate it over lunch. I’ve been wanting to try the Ginseng Chicken at Big Mama for a while now so I decided to go there.
Ginseng Chicken Soup with Rice: $19
According to the menu, the ginseng is from Korea, so it makes it even more authentic. The soup was really flavoursome, the chicken very tender, but the only negative point about the soup for me was that I couldn’t taste much of the ginseng although there was a relatively big piece of ginseng in the bowl. With the soup I was served 3 sides: omelette, picked mushrooms and cucumber slices, and deep fried calamari with mayonnaise. Unfortunately I don’t eat mayo so I couldn’t try the calamari, but the mushrooms and cucumber slices were really good.
