Zilver Chinese Restaurant @ Haymarket, Sydney

15 Apr

Dear Food lovers,

Zilver Chinese Restaurant is definitely one of my favouriteyum cha’ or also formerly known as ‘dim simrestaurants in Sydney.
This restaurant is well hidden from the main streets, as it is located on the first floor of Sydney Central Building with a small escalator leading customers to the entrance of their restaurant.
Zilver is not only renowned for serving contemporary and classic Chinese dishes but also an arena where most Asian artists and celebrities have their autograph session held at.

Upon walking into the restaurant, we were welcomed by the wall of fame. Where familiar faces from the Asian celebrity world emerges as we wandered into the restaurant. Greeted by a cheerful waitress and led to our table. The ever so busy restaurant was filled with patrons waiting for their yumcha trolley to stroll by. Usually newly seated patrons get the most attention from the yumcha trolleys. As we were getting comfortable with our seat, we could see ladies swerving their yumcha trolleys toward our direction offering us a variety of dim sim dishes.
Waiters and waitresses linger around and are attentive to your demands.

Har Gao - Steamed Prawn Dumplings.

Massive size Siu Mai - Steamed Pork Dumplings.

Char Siew Bao - Steamed BBQ Pork Buns.

The best Lao Sa Bao - Steamed Custard & Egg Buns, watch out as you take your first luscious bite as it is really juicy. Without proper care, u will have the sauce all over your fingers. Double thumbs up!! Definitely better than the ones I had in Singapore.

Gao Choi Gao - Garlic Chive and Scallop Dumplings.

Deep Fried Wu Kok - Taro Dumping, Crispy and fluffy on the outside and soft mashed taro with pork on the inside.

Steamed Black Sesame Buns.

Fung Zhao (凤抓) - Chicken Feet. One my favourite dish, however not many would dare to try. It has chewy, soft and slimy texture but a sweet and tangy flavour.

You may generally foretell a good restaurant from the rest by looking at the type of patrons they cater to. If a Chinese restaurant is filled with Chinese patrons, it proves that they have preserved the delectable authentic dishes and has not alter the taste. Cause no one knows food better than their own ethnic group. Same theory applies to other ethnic cuisines.

Zilver’s ChefAward-winning Hong-Kong born executive chef  who has more than 30 years of cooking experience under his belt, breathes magic into classic Chinese cooking techniques by thinking “outside the wok”.
