Fast on the heels of their new Bankstown store, Chefs Gallery have added a Parramatta restaurant to their fledgling empire.
While it’s part of Westfield Parramatta, Chefs Gallery Founder Kaisern Ching has cleverly seen it situated it on the outside edge of the monolith, ensuring you can dine without actually entering the shopping centre.
Chefs Gallery Parramatta joins an already impressive line-up of casual eateries, including Thai Riffic and Sushi Bay as fellow outside neighbours, and Malaysian chain PappaRich situated just within.
Residents and workers in the area touted as Sydney’s second CBD will now have access to the same range modern Chinese dishes us city folk enjoy. The glam new 200-seater store has the same glass walled kitchen, ensuring you can watch your hand-stretched noodles being made. Their trademark green noodles served with king brown mushrooms are coloured using spinach, and a firm favourite at the flagship store.
Two hungry busloads of city slickers arrived en-masse and consumed tray after tray of Macanese-style mini burgers stuffed with pork fillet, pork floss, lettuce and sweet-chilli mayo.
Later we numbed our tongues on tender slices of tataki wagyu beef with Sichuan-style spicy dressing. Baskets of crisp wonton skins and salt and pepper calamari kept us drinking long into the night, before the gun restaurant PR team Cardinal Spin loaded up any stragglers onto luxury coaches for a tipsy ride home.
