The Little Cube @ Sunnybank

Hubby & I went to watch movie Real Steal in Sunnybank a few days ago. Given that there are so many restaurants and eateries available in Sunnybank and that we have an hour to spare, we decided to have a quick dinner before the movie starts at 6:30pm.

We headed to The Little Cube located outside of the Sunnybank Plaza. The Little Cube is right next to Cube Hot Pot being its sister restaurant. It's pretty quiet and we're the only dine in customer because 5:30pm is still early for dinner.

Decor looks simple and clean

Soon after we've been seated, a waiter brought us a pot of Chinese tea and menu. The menu is in both Chinese and English. We ordered a Twice Cooked Pork Belly Slices, a Sweet & Sour Pork Loin Strips and two steamed rice. It only took a few minutes for the food to arrive. To be honest, I am shocked at how quickly our meals were being served although the restaurant was quiet. No matter how much I appreciate the efficient service we're getting, when I found out the steamed rice wasn't fresh and steamingly warm, I felt really disappointed. Instantly I know this dinner won't be as enjoyable as it could have been with this somewhat lukewarm rice (most likely being leftover from their lunch service). I didn't ask the waiter to give us fresh rice as I would imagine they haven't got any just yet, otherwise they would have served us the fresh one!

The disappointing steamed rice is a big "no no"!

Twice cooked pork belly slices $14.80
The Twice Cooked Pork Belly Slices can be ordered as mild, medium or hot. The one we got is mild. The flavour was pretty good although the pork belly was a bit too greasy and fatty. As you can see from the picture above, there's a fair bit of oil in this dish.

Sweet & sour pork loin strips $15.80

The Sweet & Sour Pork Loin Strips was pretty flavoursome although I prefer the batter of the pork loin to be a bit crispier.

Overall, our dining experience was average mainly due to the steamed rice being not fresh. Price wise the meal wasn't expensive (our bill is less than $35) but they are plenty of other options at the similar or cheaper price range in Sunnybank. Service is quick but maybe too quick?

P.S. Be sure to have cash with you because this restaurant accepts cash payments only.

  1. It's so annoying when restuarants serve leftover food, you're paying the exact amount as the later diners so why should you get less quality? Did you enjoy the movie? I saw it with my man the other night, loved it :)

  2. @emma you've got it! We love the movie too! Apparently there could be a sequel to it!!
