There are a few places in Chatswood where you'd most likely need to wait in line if you visit during dinner hours - Makoto, New Shanghai, de Pho and Chatswood BBQ Kitchen.
My dear friend P and I were in the mood for some quick and well-priced Cantonese style food on a Friday night so Chatswood BBQ Kitchen it was! This place recently had a make-over and now sits roughly double the number of customers than previously. This doesn't help with the line-waiting however! We had to wait for around 10 minutes, during which we drooled over the 'window display' of hanging ducks and char siu while contemplating what to order at the same time.
Ordering took us a while as they had over 100 dishes on 3 separate menus that we were given! Here's what was on my table that night:
Egg-plant with fish paste
This isn't your usual egg-plant with fish paste dish as they used a fair amount of tomato paste in it which is not what we had expected. We also couldn't taste the fish paste and P actually wondered if they ran out of some ingredients in the kitchen! But I was hungry so I didn't mind as much.
Stir-fry beef with Chinese broccoli
This is the better dish of the night and the greens were definitely fresh and crunchy! I'm looking forward to try their other dishes next time...
