Lunch at Pu'er in Waterloo

I love eating out.
I know you know that, and I know that my curvaceous fiugure bears testimony to the fact :-)
And today I had the most terrific lunch at Pu'er in Waterloo.

The gorgeous chinoise interior at Pu'er

This glam but unpretentious restaurant serves modern Asian cuisine and a full range of Chinese teas, served up by tea-master and owner Siev Gour.
Mr. Noodlies and I had an outrageously indulgent lunch (but never fear, health nuts - we skipped dinner), enjoying such things as Gangnam BBQ Chicken, scallop siu mai and a delicious eggplant cheese gratin that would please any vegetarian. Oh, and a bo kho sandwich inspired  by Siev's Cambodian-Chinese childhood in Southwestern Sydney - damn it was good. We accompanied it all with some of Siev's best tea, a smoky, woody tieguanyin, and a truly delicious iced tea made from jasmine tea, papaya and pineapple. It was absolutely genius, and exquisitely subtle.The desserts were pretty fab as well.

I don't know about you, but I find so many of these modern Asian joints sadly lacking in flavour,  but every dish I tried today at Pu'er was absolutely delicious, and I will definitely be back. I can't recommend the place highly enough.
It helps that the proprietor, Mr. Gour, rates pretty highly on the hunk-o-meter, as you can see in this pic:
