David Yap honed his skills in Singaporean hotels and Melbourne’s famous Flower Drum before bringing his talents to Choi’s. His extensive menu of classic Chinese favourites has something for everyone. A suburban gem, Choi’s has a luxurious dining room featuring tones of white, black and red. Linen tablecloths and napkins, fine glassware and heavy black chopsticks add to the classy atmosphere.
Chef Yap’s elegant dishes are brimming with flavour and presented with great attention to detail. Chicken san choi bao is a light but filling starter. Crunchy lettuce cups are loaded with a tasty chicken and mushroom mixture; water chestnut adds textural interest, while a pot of hoisin sauce is brought to the table for sweetness. Scallops with ginger and spring onion is a beautiful dish. Perfectly cooked scallops are tender and sweet, and they are enhanced with bold discs of ginger and crisp vegetables.
PSST! If you’re feeling hungry, you can’t go past Choi’s banquet for $79 per person.
