Jimmy’s Place. A lunch review

By johnboy - 27 May 2013 7

jimmy's place

Jimmy’s Place has been around in Dickson for many years now, but recently they’ve moved to the far end of Woolley Street, where the Elders real estate agency briefly dwelt.

I have memories of going there in the mid 2000’s, ordering too heavily off their specials menu, and being overwhelmed by bone marrow and jellyfish and other Chinese delicacies best introduced in small doses.

Since then I’ve looked at the menu in the window many times and written the non-specials off as being bog standard suburban Chinese.

And yet the place has been getting more and more packed to the point they’ve moved up the street to a bigger restaurant.

After trying the new premises for lunch yesterday I think I’ve cracked it.

We had Shan Tung Chicken and Mandarin Pork Chops, pretty well known quantities.

But the way they do them is anything but bog standard.

There’s complexity, subtlety and fire.

The service is OK, the serves are large, and the Tsing Tao beer was $6 a bottle.

Lunch for two with drinks came out around the $50 mark.

Having cracked the code I think I’ll have to go back and see how they’ve re-interpreted the other old stagers.

Their number is 6248 8188.

Those look like huge serves. Will you be implementing a review of local gyms or aerobic classes post lunch?

Most young chinese when learning english are assigned an english name as part of their tuition.
