Chinese food has come a long way since the 60s. Once upon a time sweet and sour pork, chop suey and fried rice were a common choice. Now we have every imaginable Asian food available to enjoy.

Chef's Gallery is a multi award winning restaurant chain. With six restaurants throughout Sydney, patrons come in droves to taste the contemporary Chinese dishes and Pan-Asian creations. In an effort to diversify and appeal to the local community, Chefs Gallery has recently rebranded their Hurstville restaurant and relaunched as Chefs Gallery Classic. The new concept restaurant sees the masters of contemporary Chinese cuisine refocus to present a new menu of traditional Southern Chinese cuisine.

At Chefs Gallery Classic, patrons can watch the talented Chefs creating all manner of Asian food from stretching hand made noodles, rolling plump dumplings, stirring spicy hot pots, steaming fish to frying crispy soft shell crab. Dining here is not only a tantalising taste experience but a visual feast for the eyes.

You can enjoy dishes that take their roots from traditional recipes from the Sichuan and Hunan provinces in Southern China. The new menu combines a mix of fiery, aromatic, fresh flavours and unique textures that will take you on a delectable oriental journey.

"Each new menu item is a study in the restrained yin and yang of Chinese cuisine" says Chefs Gallery Founder, Kaisern Ching. "The menu is made up of tried and true favourites from the flagship Chefs Gallery restaurants, coupled with an exclusive array of affordable meals from our 'Classic' range."

Take a look at some of the new items on offer:

Small dishes

Bean jelly noodles presented with a Sichuan-style chilli sauce sprinkled with sesame, chives and finely crushed peanuts ($6.90).

Hot Pots

It wouldn't be traditional Southern Chinese menu without a selection of Hot Pot dishes. The hot pots range includes: a Sichuan-style hot pot with duck blood curd and a spice level fit to your choosing ($12.90);

Eggs three way is another new and exciting option featuring silky steamed eggs topped with both salted duck eggs and Chinese century eggs ($11.90) and another special dish is the lightly battered and fried pork ribs which would not be made without their famous Sichuan-style marinade ($22.90).

Desserts

There are also two new dessert options: A delicate floral cherry blossom encased in a subtle jelly dome ($3.90) and soft, glutinous rice dumplings with red bean paste centre, rolled in a peanut crumble ($3.90). I love the thought of the jelly dome melting in my mouth.
