With only a few weeks remaining till the end of March, I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and post about this place before it officially closes its doors at the end of the month.
The 'Pancake ($6.00)' is a pan-fried shallot pancake that takes its inspirations from the Chinese and Korean kitchens. It's crispy on the outside, with flaky layers on the inside. It's a nice snack to start the meal as it's not overly oily but a tad dry. A squeeze of the chilli sauce does wonders.
The 'Duck Noodles ($16.00)' are packed with a whole lot of spice. Sichuan spiced minced duck and firm tofu on top of lo mein, a wheat flour type of egg noodle. The flavour is strong and bold with hints of pepper, and a bit too much for some at the table.
Saving the best part for last.
I'm a big fan of Ms.G's, another restaurant that's part of the Merivale Group. The food there is always nearly spot on and in general I love the laid back atmosphere. The Asian inspired dishes here reminded me very much of what I usually have at Ms.G's and it was delicious. The food portions at Work in Progress are decent, it's extremely affordable and most of all the food was good. If only it was open for longer. Hurry! Go now before it's too late.
