I’m talking about the extremely popular Grain Asia cafe which is situated near the Reject Shop at Box Hill Central (also at Box Hill Centro and at Monash University, Clayton). Don’t let its food court location deter you. Just check out the hordes of people who line up at this joint every day to grab a table… and let the photo below tempt you…

For a measly $7.80, you get a huge bowl of steaming hot soup, a generous serving of thin egg noodles, some Chinese vegies and five huge prawn wontons. I will admit that the soup could do with a bit more flavour as it was rather bland today but goddamn, these prawn wontons make up for it. Juicy pieces of REAL prawns encased in wonton wrappers with a tiny amount of bamboo shoots embedded in them. They are practically a meal in itself.
