Chef’s Gallery, Sydney

Chef’s Gallery – Piggy buns. Chef’s Gallery – Piggy buns. Okay, so they do have other food but when Chef’s Gallery first opened late last year, I saw same dish, uploaded by ten different people on facebook…. I think it’s a sign to check it out!

Wok fried medium grain rice with three types of eggs (chicken egg, salted duck egg and century egg) $13.90

Exactly as the menu states “a must try dish”. The salted duck egg yolk gives the fried rice this amazing thick grainy texture. If you’ve seen a similar dish anywhere else, please let me know!

Cucumber served cold with a hint of chili oil – $3.90

Yummy crispy cucumber. A little to0 chili and dry for my liking but somehow couldn’t stop eating it… Scrumptious!

Spinach noodles wok fried with seafood $16.90

I think this was another recommended menu dish… Wasn’t a huge fan of the spinach noodles since my mum also makes it fresh… Guess I just have high (or warped) expectations!

Steamed sesame ‘piggy-face’ bun $5.90

The famous chef’s gallery dessert. I thought it was a hard sesame paste inside but it was a runny sesame sauce when I tried to pull it apart! Loved the sesame taste but proceed with caution!

Steamed pumpkin pastry dumpling filled with lotus paste – $5.90

Interesting appearance but a little bland to eat. I would recommend sticking to the piggy buns!

Red bean paste delicately rolled in fine sticky rice flour pastry – $5.90

I never really knew what sticky rice flour pastry was like but according to my friends, it wasn’t really what they were expecting. Actually it tasted rather dry and had a faint red bean taste. Once again, stick to the piggy buns if you wanna be safe!
