Chefs Gallery Macquarie Review:
Three years ago, we were lucky enough to be invited to Chefs Gallery Feng Shui Blessing opening party for Chefs Gallery Macquarie Park. I went back to the restaurant recently because we had something to do around the area.
They have quite a different menu from when I first reviewed them in Town Hall.
Prawn and squid shu mai – $11.90 – topped with avocado and fish roe paste (4 pieces)
When you go to a yumcha restaurant, shu mai is considered one of the mainstays. Chefs Gallery managed to make it ‘gourmet’ by adding avocado and fish roe paste to the dish.
Ox tail slow cooked – $26.90 – in a mix of Chinese herbs, then fried with lemon grass, eschalots, ginger, chilli, galangal, kaffir lime and basil leaves. Served in a sizzling hot pot.
Ox tail is a dish that I enjoyed the most when I was living in indonesia. It is probably not the healthiest dish in the world, but it is so yummy! Also, this dish is probably one of the most expensive ox tail dishes in the world.
Spinach handmade noodles – $19.90 – wok fried with prawns, mussels in shell, baby calamari tubes, julienned carrots and fresh shiitake mushrooms
When they had the opening party, noodles played a big part. Chefs gallery prides itself with their handmade noodles. The spinach handmade noodles is one of them and they were very good.
Wok fried medium grain rice – $16.90 – with three kinds of eggs (chicken egg, salted duck egg and century egg)
Why stopped with one egg when you can put in three kinds of eggs in your fried rice?
Smiley egg custard buns – $4.90 each
If you are eating out with the kids and not planning to have any desserts, don’t show this section to them. In addition to the emoticons custard bun, they also have the more famous piggy face bun.
The final verdict for Chefs Gallery Macquarie
Chefs Gallery Macquarie Park is probably one of the more expensive Chinese restaurants chain. However, their handmade noodles are very good.
Did you know?
One dish that we did not order this time around but you should really try is the Peking Duck Roti.
