Piggy buns at Chefs Gallery, Sydney

I have wanted to try Chefs Gallery for a while now. Their famous pig buns are what have attracted me to this restaurant. I have seen many photos and have ‘fallen in love’ with piggy – not only that, but you all know my love for pork!

Chefs Gallery can be found on the corner of George and Bathurst Street, right next door to KFC and underneath the Lumiere Building. It reminded me a little of Din Tai Fung, which is located in World Square, Sydney.

The décor is contemporary, lots of dark wood and padded surface. I love the open glass kitchen where they make the hand made noodles.

I am not sure why I ordered these xia jio ($5.90) which are pretty much har gao, prawn dumplings. The pastries were thin and filled with large juicy prawns.

‘The Mother’ wanted the handmade noodles with finely sliced beef shin slow roasted in premium soy sauce dipped in a spicy red soup ($15.90). The soup was a little spicy which gave it a nice kick. The handmade noodles thin and the sliced beef shin deliciously succulent. It was tasty and I really do like that extra spiciness.

The wok watercress with chili ($12.90) was cooked to perfection.

The sweet and dark pork ribs ($18.90) were excellent – juicy, succulent, and delicious sweet. I was in heaven.

I was full but was determined to have the piggy face bun dessert ($5.90) – aren’t they adorable? TOO cute to eat, and there are two genders, male and female! I clapped like a child and had a massive grin from ear to ear – yes I can be such a child sometimes!

I didn’t have the heart to eat these delicious cute buns. However, we had a movie to watch and finally, took one and broke it in half. Black sesame! YUM! I love black sesame! I have to admit though, it was a little on the sweet side but it was stupendous!

The restaurant was busy, but thankfully we didn’t have to wait for long, 10 mins? We did sit at the bar though, which was more than fine as I get to see how the noodles are made. It does get busy and I have seen numerous people waiting to be seated.

Will definitely be back with more people to try the different dishes and of course to eat the piggy face bun – one of the reasons to go back!

    I LOVE the little bow on the lady piggy – too cute for words. I wouldn’t have noticed it unless you’d mentioned it. I really want to go to Chefs Gallery – all the blogs I’ve read about sounds delicious!

    Piggy brains! lol. I think everyone goes ga-ga over their undeniable cuteness. I carefully plucked out the nose and ears to savour last. Everyone’s a little kid at heart!
