Chatswood welcomes 180-seat Chinese restaurant Mama Mulan
Mama Mulan, has opened on Sydney's North Shore with Shandong cuisine the central point of the menu.
Designed by interior specialists DS17 (Nour Restaurant, Alpha Restaurant, Beta Bar) and located across the Chatswood Concourse precinct, Mama Mulan features textured, sand-coloured walls, blonde timbre tabletops, and geometric lighting.
With space for 180 diners, Mama Mulan also boasts an expansive interior complete with a large dining room, bar and three private function rooms.
Heading the open kitchen is former Lotus and Chefs Gallery chef, Marble Ng, who has mastered his craft during his travels across China and its various provinces.
Using skills and techniques unique to northern China, Ng has created a classic-leaning menu with a focus on handmade noodles, dumplings and seafood.
Owner Kim Jin is thrilled with what Ng and the Mama Mulan team have put together.
“We’ve created a menu that highlights the traditional aspects of Chinese cuisine and combined modern elements which the Australian market can relate to," he says.
"Our drinks list also features a wide range of Chinese alcohol, wines and beers from all over the world that complement our dishes."
Signature dishes include pulled dandan noodle soup with pork, chilli and peanut sauce and live lobster wok-fried in Mama Mulan’s secret Szechwan sauce; pork xiao long bao; deep-fried pork ribs with garlic; and snow crab with black pepper sauce.
Other highlights include roast Mongolian-style lamb ribs with cumin; and braised pork belly with cinnamon, star anise and bamboo shoots will also be available.
For dessert, Mama Mulan has partnered food truck and cult favourite, Duo Duo ice cream, to craft the venue's own fried ice cream flavours as part of its wider, dessert offering.
And overseeing the drinks list is David Stewart (ex-Sofitel) who has created a cocktail list of light and aromatic ingredients and that complement the strong flavours of the menu.
