Chefs Gallery is well known for producing great Chinese food. They have numerous locations due to the quality if their product. We visited their Town Hall site. A large restaurant situalted in Regent Place, with an open kitchen catering to the masses, with the staff easily servicing the restaurant without too much fuss.
The menu is a book of excitement with dim sum, hand made noodles, stirfries and desserts. The drinks menu also has a number of interesting options including the lychee and mint ice crush and also some infused hot teas.
Foodwise, we were torn by choice, wanting to order almost everything on the menu. Instead we limited ourselves to some key options of fresh noodles and interesting flavours we hadn’t tried before. We ordered a variety of meals from each section of the menu. To start, we couldn’t go past the light flaky roti and the prawn har gau dumplings – wonderful transparent pockets filled with goodness. You can certainly tell how fresh they are from first bite.
We of course had to order the noodles, made in house and went with their prawn and pork combination wonton and noodles. Pretty spicy but great flavour!
We are also fans of the flavour known as numb, a strange sour like metallic taste which comes from the szechaun pepper. When we spotted the numb chicken on the menu we had to order this. An intriguing dish to try if you enjoy spice; combining chicken, vegetables, cashews, chilli and the flavour explosion from the numb sauce.
Make sure you save room for dessert. The desserts at chefs gallery are always fun. Whether it be a farm scene, fairies and unicorn in the clouds or an emoticon custard bun, which is what we got this time . Remember when your parents would tell you not to play with your food, forget that. We had the custard bun, knowing we could have fun by poking a hole in the mouth and giving it a squeeze to have some custard spew out. This was not only fun, it was tasty too.
Thanks to Chef’s Gallery for their hospitality and for the invitation from Matt at Cardinal Spin.
We recommend a visit to Chefs Gallery for an enjoyable and tasty experience.
