It’s here. Ok, well not quite but it’s ALMOST here. We know you all want the goss on the best interstate foodie expansion ever, so here’s the down low.
While we’ve been busy refreshing our feeds for the latest on its Sydney opening, Chin Chin has been building an army of ultra-foodies who have hospitality running through their veins. And yeah, they’ll be here to feed you tasty south-eastern fare because it’s about time we had Chin Chin’s chilli salt chicken wings on Sydney turf (and in our bellies).
Expect an all-star line-up you’re guaranteed to fan all over; the Sydney crew boasts talent from Quay, Black by Ezard and Bistro Guillaume, with Craig Hemmings (who has been the GM of Guillaume at Bennelong for the last decade), bringing his knowledge to Chin Chin Sydney. Can we get a hell to the yeah?
To make things even better, The Lucas Group has also gathered Chris Matters to head the rollout and management of Chin Chin Sydney (he’s only handled the likes of hospitality juggernauts Merivale and QT Hotels… no biggie).
On the food front, you can expect Chin Chin faves and new kids (equally delicious). Think twice-cooked beef short rib with shaved coconut salad and prik nahm pla, rotisserie pork belly with fennel plum pickle and scud chilli death sauce and for the vegos—rendang-spiced mushrooms and toasted coconut.
And where will this epic hotspot be opening its doors? The Griffith Teas Building. Yep, the stunning 100-year-old heritage building on Goulburn Street, Surry Hills. It'll even have a 100-seater bar called GoGo with beats, booths and cracking cocktails, plus a function space slash private dining room that goes by the name of Chii Town. We know, everything is great.
Now what you've all been waiting for, the opening date. Chin Chin will throw their doors wide open on 2 October, with a dinner-only service until 8 October. Then she'll be open seven days per week, from 11am 'til late. It’s going to be delicious and we’re damn well hungry already.
Here are the best new Sydney openings to keep you fed for the moment.
