Queen Chow Enmore

When Queens Hotel by Merivale opened in late December 2016, it brought two venues under the one roof: Queen Chow and The Smelly Goat bar.

Queen Chow is headed by Papi Chulo’s Christopher Hogarth and Patrick Friesen and former Mr. Wong dim sum master, Eric Koh. The trio deliver a Cantonese menu of classics with traditionally prepared BBQ meats and seafood.

The menu is divided into Dim Sum, with a choice of steamed or baked and fried dim sum platters; and Roast Meats that include roast duck and pork. The Snacks offer a list of six temptations and you’d be wise to bring friend along to share very dish. These include the Stir fried milk, and the silky Hokkaido scallop sashimi. There’s a Steamed selection that includes Flowering garlic chives with schmaltz, and a Stir Fried menu that is far superior than any local Cantonese has on offer. Think Moreton Bay bugs with kombu butter, asparagus and tosaka seaweed. Mud Crabs at market price come in three flavours including Steamed with ginger shallot crab emulsion.

Here’s a snapshot of the menu:
