Chefs Gallery @ George Street, Sydney

18 Apr

Dear Food lovers,

The Chefs Gallery opened sometime September 2011. My sister did mentioned to me about this place even before I arrive in Sydney.  Apparently food was lovely and flavoursome so it was worth bringing Mum & Dad to try.
We were told that the joint is usually packed with customers therefore it is necessary to make reservations a day or two in advance. We manage to book in for dinner on Thursday night and on that same week, my bestie Lynsa made dinner reservation to dine at that same restaurant. So I will be combining all the photos under one post instead of posting the same thing twice.

Chefs Gallery is owned by an entrepreneurial name Kaisern Ching, who brought successful Taipei-based global noodle chain Din Tai Fung to World Square, Sydney. Rumours has it that he was not in good terms with the existing shareholders of Din Tai Fung, so he left and came up with Chefs Gallery, thus you will notice the similarity in some of their dishes.

Many restaurants these days have tried removing the barrier between the chefs and their customers, allowing the customers to see the skills involve in preparing the food as some sort of entertainment or performance. Many have adopted this concept and Chefs Gallery is one of the many that have implemented the concept and successfully attracted many customers.

Front Entrance.

Bars along the glass window kitchen, the usual wooden dinning tables and chairs in the middle and the slightly more comfy dinning couches on the other side.

Bar seating by the kitchen, watching the chefs fiddling and stretching the hand made noodles.

Chef WOK-ing hard.

One does the handmade noodles and passes to the next chef to cook the noodles to ensure absolute freshness.
