Southeast Asian Street Food Dining in the Heart of Chapel Street Precinct
Good Group will be expanding its hospitality portfolio in Australia later this year with Wong Baby, an exciting new Asian fusion restaurant offering fun-dining. The venue is slated to open mid-November at 627 Chapel Street, South Yarra.
The vividly designed eatery will operate across two levels of South Yarra’s newest landmark A-Grade commercial tower, Goldfields House, adding significantly to the continued revitalisation of the iconic food and retail precinct.
With prime Chapel Street frontage, the 550sqm venue will span across two levels catering for around 250+ guests. Wong Baby will become a go-to destination for group outings.
Inspired by the street food of Southeast Asia, Wong Baby is all about fun-dining and will satisfy everyone’s tastebuds. The menu has been designed by Culinary Director Angel Fernandez, who has successfully launched Botswana Butchery and White + Wong’s in Sydney and Botswana Butchery in Melbourne for Good Group. Angel also brings a wealth of experience to the table from his previous role as Culinary Director at Dante NYC.
Angel and his team will be serving up an array of delicious dishes including sticky chicken wings, Thai-style whole fish, curries, dumplings, bao, sushi and sashimi. Highlights are sure to be freshly shucked oysters with chilli jam, fresh lime & crispy shallots, Malay green curry with beef brisket, served with roti and Vietnamese style grilled sirloin salad with vermicelli noodles, chilli & aromatic herbs.
The Wong Baby menu will be accompanied by a colourful cocktails and drinks list that are sure to draw a crowd including fishbowl cocktails, beer towers and an extensive wine selection.
The interior of the fast-paced eatery will bring to life the feel of an Asian street food environment with Tokyo-inspired neons, quirky lighting installations, and hanging paper lanterns on both levels. Other Wong Baby design features will include high silver ceilings, bamboo roll-up blinds, colourful wooden chairs and an impressive timber batten staircase with hanging neon disc pendants.
“We are so excited to launch this new brand for Good Group in Australia,” said Good Group CEO Russell Gray.
“Wong Baby will be all about our fun-dining ethos and a little sister to our White + Wong’s brand. Guests will enjoy vibrant interiors that will transport them to Southeast Asian streets with a menu of dishes that will suit everyone from solo diners to groups.
The location of Wong Baby is perfect, and we are thrilled to be a part of the new Goldfields House Development in South Yarra.”
Wong Baby will be an exciting addition to one of Melbourne’s most thriving food precincts, the iconic Chapel Street, later this year.
