Does My Bomb Look Big In This?

Review - Chefs Gallery




The duck pancake is dead – long live the shredded Peking Duck Roti Wrap ($16.90/6 pieces)!




It was my highlight of Chefs Gallery’s revised menu, which centres upon Chapas – Chinese style tapas.



Before you wince, recall the Chinese have been sharing small dishes – dim sum – all the way back to the Han Dynasty; and reduced portions means sampling more dishes!



Begin your adventure with a black vinegar-based Seaweed Salad ($6.90) or the Cucumber Salad ($6.90/10 pieces).



Both dishes lightly feature chilli oil, whetting your appetite for upcoming Chinese dude food – like tasty Macanese Style Pork Fillet and Floss Mini Burgers ($15.90/3 pieces).



Though pared back, their beautifully photographed picture menu is still extensive, so consider finding seven friends and unleashing your inner noodle star at a Hands On Noodles and Chapas Feast ($69/head).



It’s only offered to one table a night because it includes the Master Noodle Chef attending your table personally.



With the rest of the restaurant watching enviously, you’ll attempt to master the art of stretching...



...piping (and eating) three types of noodles including...



...toothsome knife-sliced sorghum, and...



...beautiful hand-stretched Squid Ink Noodles ($20.90) wok-tossed with mussels, calamari and buttery garlic sauce.



Ease any embarrassment by burying your face in a barnyard of Piggy Buns and Totoro Marshmallow Rabbits ($19.90).
