Jason Chan is the mastermind behind the latest instalment in Sydney’s lower north shore. Canton Kitchen, is not your average Cantonese restaurant. It showcases dishes that are influenced with Chan’s own twist.
Arriving at this quirky, colourful hub it was easy to see that if the dishes were as cool as the wallpaper in this dim lighted eatery, we were in for a treat. The menu certainly has a dish for everyone; especially those wanting something with incredible flavour and perfect presentation.
Entrees included silken tofu with soybean floss (one of my favourites!) and hot and numbing chicken wings. For mains, we were treated to ‘Typhoon Shelter’ style tempura vegetables; Kung Pao chicken served with macadamias and Singapore chilli prawns. If you love food, flavour and want to walk out with a full belly – this place is right up your alley!
Jason Chan said Canton is about ‘celebrating the delicate and refined flavours of Cantonese cuisine while offering a unique take on the classic dishes that Australian diners treasure’. Chan really highlights the Cantonese flavours we have all known previously but with his own flair added to each dish.
If you’ve got a sweet tooth, be sure to finish your night with the fried ice cream in a coconut caramel sauce, or the coconut sago. Both are delicious and will have you coming back for more.
