New Shanghai, Chatswood Chase

New Shanghai is one of those few Chinese restaurants which just keeps getting better, and has since managed to open 4 branches across Sydney. Tonight we’re visiting their second Chatswood branch which is located in the higher-end Chatswood Chase Shopping Centre (the other one is located in Lemon Grove) and the menu has gotten significantly larger since I last visited a couple years back.

The newest addition to the Merivale restaurant empire is Mr. Wong – a slick Cantonese restaurant specialising in dim sum, with some modern twists. It opened last Friday with a trio of high profile chefs at the helm: Dan Hong and Jowett Yu of Ms. G’s and also Eric Koh, the head dim sum chef from the Michelin starred restaurant Hakkasan in London. I’ve been looking forward to trying this new yum cha destination ever since I caught wind of it a few months ago and we booked ourselves a table for Saturday lunchtime, the day after the opening.
