Chef’s Art, Parramatta

Two restaurants side by side. One doing a bustling trade, so I pick that one.

Every table has a plate in panfried pork buns, the bottoms golden from the cooking process. There are some interesting things on the menu, including roti, pumpkin noodles, and Xiao long bao (steamed dumplings with soup inside).

I am overruled in my menu choices, so we have seafood fried noodles and dumplings with pork and chives.

And… It’s pretty good!

The seafood fried noodles have prawns, squid and fish balls throughout. Our request for ‘a touch of chilli’ is met with a burning mouth, but not watering eyes.

Stir Fry Noodles

The dumplings arrive first, 10 gleaming boiled jiao zi, with a slightly over salted filling. This is tempered by the black vinegar positioned on every table.

Pork Dumplings

The staff all speak Mandarin Chinese, and the menu is english & chinese. If you can grab one of the female waitstaff, they are on the whole more helpful.

I’ll be back to try those other dishes that caught my eye.
