David Thompson is returning home to Sydney, to open his second Long Chim venue in Australia. The casual Thai Street food restaurant and bar is set to open late this August in Sydney.
“It’s been over 20 years since I last opened a restaurant in Sydney. And now like some prodigal son, I am returning home to open Long Chim. I am so looking forward to cooking in Sydney once more and having people come and taste Long Chim’s food – Thai street food.”
Located in Angel Place, the 190-seat restaurant is split over two levels and the interiors have been designed by Kelly Ross of The Gentry in conjunction with Crone Partners, David Cole and the Long Chim design team.
Long Chim means, ‘come and taste’ and with a menu that boasts mouthwatering Thai Street food, the restaurant and bar will be the ideal place to drop in for a snack and drink or stay to and work your way through the menu.
So what will the menu include? Crunchy prawn cakes, beef skewers with cumin coriander and turmeric, and cured pork sausages spiked with chillies and ginger. Or for something more substantial a rich mussaman curry of beef with cardamom and coconut or some deep-fried squid with garlic and peppercorns. And then for dessert a banana roti or some pungent unforgettable durian ice-cream.
And don’t forget about the cocktails. Developed by Long Chim’s head barman and one of the Top 25 Bartenders in Australia, James Connolly. The wines have be carefully selected by Greg Plowes.
Bookings for dinner go live on Wednesday 17th August.
Long Chim will open for dinner from Monday 29th August.
