To celebrate our 20-year anniversary a special degustation will take place on Wednesday 17th October honouring famous past and present dishes. Our guests will also get to taste new-look dishes at this nine-course sit-down affair.
The decadent evening will bring to life long-standing family recipes passed down from David’s mother and grandmother, cherished for over 20 years.
Dishes like the 8-treasure duck wrapped in sticky rice and Long jing green tea sautéed prawns will re-acquaint you with reminisced classics. Also featured is the Shanghai sticky pork belly, braised for twelve hours then served with baby chat potatoes, this signature dish is established as a current menu must-have. Items making their culinary debut include a steamed sea perch fillet in a native spinach broth and a classic Chinese dish, Gu Lao Rou chicken, known for its plum and pineapple notes.
Other menu items include the original double boiled duck tonic soup with dates and wolfberries from when we first opened and the Iron Buddha Beef, which is a flash-fried tea infused beef, wok-tossed in garlic, chillies and spring onion, then served on a bed of crisped iron buddha tea leaves – a true menu staple.
Enjoy hand-picked matched wines that will enhance the aromas and flavours of the night. Drops from France, Spain’s Rias Baixas, New Zealand’s Waipara region and the Barossa Valley will make the list. This night will be an intimate dining experience, a journey from Shanghai to Melbourne tasting David’s story on a plate in honour of tea-cooked cuisine and humble beginnings selling tea out of barrels all those years ago.
Wednesday 17th October, 7pm – 9:30pm
$70 per person, $105 with matched wine
