Crown Sydney has revealed the latest venues to join its extensive collection of restaurants: the Asian-influenced Teahouse and Noodle 88.
Scheduled to launch in December when the luxury Crown property debuts, Teahouse has been billed as a “sassy and playful take on a traditional Chinese teahouse”.
Diners of Teahouse will indulge in an array of bespoke cocktails, champagne, speciality teas and oriental bites.
The venue features birdcages for guests to sit in and act as a focal point. Featuring plush velvet and gold finishes, the birdcages “make it the perfect place to perch at dusk with a cocktail in hand while enjoying oriental bites and small dishes inspired by Japanese and Cantonese cuisine,” Crown boasts.
The Noodle 88 experience is reminiscent of noodle houses in Shanghai, delivering fast, filling and delicious fare in a vibrant, authentic setting.
“Offering a taste of that inexplicable energy that only a Hawker’s Hall in South East Asia can deliver, Noodle 88 will bring together the culture, food and atmosphere reflective of the flavours of China and South East Asia,” Crown Resorts said.
Led by Chef de Cuisine Meena Throngkumpola, the menu will be produce driven and change seasonally. Guests can expect classic dishes from across Shanghai, Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia, such as laksa, pho, Japanese soba cold noodles, Indonesian soto and a range of barbecued meats and dumplings.
Crown Sydney Executive General Manager Mark Holmes says Asian culture is a strong influence for Sydney.
“It’s light, tasty and suits the climate brilliantly. Developing a world-class dining destination with something for all Sydneysiders has been at the forefront of our planning for Crown Sydney, and in doing so we have been very mindful of Sydney’s love affair with vibrant Asian cuisine, in all its forms.”
Commenting on Teahouse, Holmes said the vision is to create a “unique and sensory experience – think traditional Chinese teahouse meets luxe lounge bar, meets Alice in Wonderland”.
