During my uni days, Pacific Seafood BBQ House was usually the place we went to for special occasions - graduation, birthdays, family visits. It was normally an indulgent meal which almost always consisted of whole roast duck (their specialty), lobster, abalone, etc.
In early 2008, they opened sister restaurant Pacific BBQ Cafe. As the name suggests, this was to be a more 'cafe' style establishment, with tables set up for no more than 4 diners and a substantially smaller menu.
The crowd is mostly made up of students and city workers, most of whom order without consulting the menu (which is made up predominantly of Hong Kong style cuisine). If you are stopping by, you must order their famous roast duck.
Don't even think about sitting to chat after your meal. The manager will promptly put the bill down on your table just as you're about to finish your last bite - that's chinese service for you!
To savour their yummy roast duck and more, visit Pacific BBQ Cafe at 213 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne.
