Happy Phoenix versus Green Dragon

If a certain symmetry, perhaps a ying-yangish complementarity fosters success, or a least longevity this pair of Chinese restaurants on Malvern Road, Prahran might be a case in point. A little way off the Chapel Street bustle, these resolutely unreformed facades, suggest that the Phoenix and the Dragon might persist by the same culinary upper hand. Or it could be they have a cult following in the housing commission high-rise virtually opposite them. As some things better remain a mystery I will not say anything other than the early hour prevented me from dining in both of these fine establishments.
