Things are looking up if you work around Wynyard with an outpost of Chefs Gallery opening up at MetCentre. Just like the original, you’ll find a glass-walled kitchen that allows you to enjoy the theatre of hand-stretched noodle making while your dish is prepared to order as you wait.
The duck pancake is dead - long live the shredded Peking Duck Roti Wrap ($16.90/6 pieces)! It was my highlight of Chefs Gallery’s revised menu, which centres upon Chapas – Chinese style tapas. Before you wince, recall the Chinese have been sharing small dishes - dim sum - all the way back to the Han Dynasty; and reduced portions means sampling more dishes!
