As part of the redevelopment of Macquarie Shopping Centre, there is a host of new eateries, including Chef's Gallery. We were seated at the bar, perfectly situated to watch the chefs showcasing their noodle making skills. How they can turn a ball of dough into strands of super thin noodles in just a couple of minutes is amazing.
Unfortunately, neither their signature piggy buns with sesame filling or the Totoro marshmallow bunnies were available :( We had to make do with savouries but luckily they did not dissappoint.
We opted for the Pork and prawn wontons with handmade noodles in a chicken soup. The noodles had a lovely, springy texture. You can tell they were freshly made. The dumplings were plump, with a delicate skin. The omelette strips were a nice touch. Definitely a comfort food!
I loved the Handmade egg tofu with spinach dish. It had a lovely crunch on the outside and was silky smooth on the inside.
The Chinese style roti with Peking duck was just like having Peking duck pancakes, but with a crispier texture and without having to go to the effort of assembling them.
Chef's Gallery is a welcome addition to this part of town. Hopefully they will have the piggy buns and Totoro available next time. Be prepared to queue on weekends as they don't take reservations.
