Rock Kung

Firstly, Rock Kung must be one of the worse names ever for a restaurant. It is located in Kingsway in Glen Waverley. Rock Kung is your typical Chinese restaurant and it opens till very late, 2-3am. As Jo noted, the crowd at Rock Kung changes from old people during the daytime, to young people at night. We went there at about 10pm and it was still packed with people who were just starting to order their meails. Usually at late night, Asian people go there for supper in the form of congee. This is what half of the group ordered.

I ordered the beef black bean since I hadn't eaten dinner yet and was extremely hungry. Despite my hunger, the beef black bean was not good. The beef was chewy and the sauce wasn't that great. I should have ordered the roast duck rice as Rock Kung are famous for their roast duck and there is a queue on Saturdays for their freshly roasted duck.

Here's Son and Rowena doing their funniest camera poses. Son had the congee, which was good apparently and Rowena had the seafood fried noodle.

Phuong and Jo also had the congee while Kin had his roast duck rice.

Overall Rating: 10/20, I would only come to Rock Kung late at night for congee or roasat duck. Otherwise the food is not that good.

Scores: 1-9: Unacceptable, don't bother. 10-11: Just OK,some shortcomings. 12: Fair. 13: Getting there. 14: Recommended. 15: Good. 16: Really good. 17: Truly excellent. 18: An outstanding experience. 19-20: Approaching perfection, Victoria's best.


  1. Rock Kund in no way tops the "Kum Fuk Market" that used to exist in Vancouver's Chinatown in the 1980's.

  2. Magnus, hahaha "Kum Fuk Market" is pretty funny. On Friday, I was talking to the same friends that went to Rock Kung about some other bad restaurant names. One friend said she knew of a restaurant called "Fook Chu" which we all thought was pretty bad.
