Today, Chadstone opened their new entertainment precinct, The Social Quarter. Filled with plenty of new restaurants and entertainment options, like bowling and arcades games, there’s lots to do in this new space. While you’re there, be sure to try the modern Asian fusion restaurant, White + Wong’s. This venue takes plenty of classic street food from China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand to create one exciting menu. This venue is now open every day, from 12pm to late.
White + Wong’s
White + Wong’s is one of New Zealand’s most awarded restaurant brands in the past five years, and this is their second location in Australia. They opened a venue in Sydney’s CBD last year with plenty of success.
This exciting 750 sqm restaurant stretches across two levels, features its own bar, and hosts up to 265 guests. On the lower level, you’ll see a colourful main dining room with lanterns, custom wallpaper and an open kitchen. If you move upstairs, you’ll take in gorgeous city views from either your seat or from the outdoor balcony. While you’re there, enjoy a cocktail at their Sardine bar.
White + Wong’s also has private dining spaces. The Green Dragon private dining room on the lower level caters for up to eight people, and upstairs, there’s two semi-private dining rooms that cater for 4-6 people. If you’re looking for a function space, you can also book the whole upper level for special events.
What’s on the menu?
Start with a selection of raw or cold cuts, like Sesame Nori-crusted Seared Tuna or Bang Bang Chicken Salad. Then, share warm bites around the table, like Duck and Chive Xiao Long Bao, Crispy Soft Shell Crab or Prawn and Coriander Crystal Skin Dumplings.
Larger dishes include Peking Duck, Red Curry of Beef Shin and Kung Pao Chicken, with side options like Char Siu Pork and Prawn Fried Rice.
While you’re there, enjoy a dessert or two, including their Deep Fried Ice Cream, served with salted butterscotch sauce.
