Modern Chinese Cuisine at Chef’s Gallery

It was my second time in Australia and I remember the sights and sounds of the country. I wouldn’t miss this chance to eat gastronomically enticing food from every corners of the city. I went to Hurstville (China Town) in South Sydney to visit my long time friend, Mikki Shao. We met 9+ years back (2008) for the World Youth Day ’08. It was fun seeing her again.

Chef’s Gallery seems like a popular Chinese restaurant as it was full during my visit. Here are some of the great selection of Chinese food we ordered during my visit:

Wok Fried Jasmine Fragrant Rice with Prawns and Diced Chinese Olives

We started off with Wok Fried Jasmine Fragrant Rice with Prawns and Diced Chinese Olives. It was good for sharing. I love the tenderness of the prawns and the great texture of the jasmine rice. I’ll give this a HIT.

Pan Fried Seafood Pot Stickers
Crispy Honey Eggplant with a hint of numbing Sichuan Pepper

We also had appetizer in the form of Crispy Honey Eggplant with a hint of numbing Sichuan Pepper. It was so crispy and it was not oily. If it had a sauce to complement its taste, it would have been an ACE. I’m going to rate it as HIT. I absolutely love the Pan Fried Seafood Pot Stickers. It was one of the best dim sum I tried so far. ACE for me!

This is just so good!

We also ordered a rice bowl from one of their lunch specials. It was so good! ACE for sure!

Roasted Duck with Lychees served in Light Mint and Chili Plum Sauce

I love the Roasted Duck with Lychees served in Light Mint and Chili Plum Sauce. It was so juicy and I love the sauce. It’s the perfect lunch order for me. ACE!

Deconstructed Pavlova with a Selection of Asian-inspired Fresh and Freeze Dried Fruits

To top off the heavy lunch, we had the Deconstructed Pavlova with a Selection of Asian-inspired Fresh and Freeze Dried Fruits as dessert. It was a perfect ending to a hearty meal.

Overall, I’m really satisfied with my lunch at Chefs Gallery. It was definitely a hidden gem at Hurstville!
