Me and Mee offers fast, tasty Chinese-influenced fun Asian food in a buzzing, vibrant restaurant environment. If the dinner conversation isn’t exciting enough then the bustling open theatrestyle show kitchen will do the trick. Three chefs were cooking up a storm and were a joy to watch at work. The sumptuous smells they were creating wafted across to our hungry table of three. Easy-listening Asian-style music could be heard comfortably over the restaurant buzz and the place was packed with hungry skiers and hotel guests, fresh from a day up the mountain. I enjoyed the atmosphere and the paper numbered menu table mats saved time and made it easy to convey your favourite option to the wait staff. For starters our table tucked into Crispy Prawn Wraps ($12), small rolls beautifully presented with a twist of crispy noodles on top and the Steamed Scallop and Chicken Siu-Mai ($12) served in a bamboo steamer. These mini dumpling balls – a juicy fat scallop on top – were accompanied by delicious dipping sauces. The staff went out of their way to accommodate special dietary needs, supplying our table with a bottle of organic tamari (gluten free soya sauce) and delicious sweet chilli. I had to defend my scrumptious Spicy Cumin Squid ($27), which came with a generous serve of fluffy white rice, and I opted to skip the onion and enjoy freshly steamed broccoli on the side instead. This was filling and very tasty – just the right amount of spicy kick to it. My daughter enjoyed the Prawn Fried Noodles ($25), also with a serve of broccoli, while my husband tucked into tasty Vegetable Fried Noodles ($21). I ordered a tall glass of soda water ($6) with my meal and there was a good range of loose leaf teas available ($6). We did not have room for dessert, but the Sweet Almond Tofu ($12) or Chocolate Mudcake ($16) looked very tempting.
The staff were all very attentive, friendly and eager to please, going out of their way to accommodate requests for variations to the menu. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived, but the staff all continued to manage a friendly smile and reported back regularly to check that our meals were to our liking. There was a small wait, but no more than could be expected on such a busy night.
