Welcome to Madame Wu, a new ‘oziental’ restaurant which has taken the last spot in the riverside Riparian Plaza.
It’s luxury all the way at the new Madame Wu, a 200-seat restaurant which includes wow features such as an illuminated, sculptured tree encased in glass, a retractable roof over the balcony so guests can enjoy the jaw-dropping river views come rain or shine, and a glass encased cellar with 150 wines.
Owners Adrian and Nick Rosato of the RawGROUP have lured Executive Chef Brendon Barker from Sunshine Beach’s popular Embassy XO. Brendan has developed a menu that combines influences from Southern China, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan and Taiwan using fresh Queensland produce including Moreton Bay bugs and Mooloolaba prawns.
A special custom made duck oven will create authentic duck dishes like Chinese roasted duck with peanuts and tea-salted duck stir fried with mushrooms and black vinegar.
Pan fired scallop dumplings, Pijuju snapper, beef cheeks braised in rock sugar and soy and sticky Kilcoy beef will also feature on the menu.
The dessert menu includes a steamed chocolate bun with green tea ice cream, five spice panacotta, crunchy nut cornflakes with milk ice cream or a Madame Wu tasting plate so you can try it all.
Adrian Rosato says Madame Wu is the groups most ambitious and luxurious project to date.
“After 20 years in the industry this is the first time we have branched away from casual dining. What we love about Asian restaurants is the communal environment where the table can enjoy family style dining with the sharing of dishes, that’s the flavour of Madame Wu.”
Emerging as one of Brisbane’s premier dining locations, Eagle Street’s Riparian Plaza, Eagle Street Pier and River Quarter are now full to the brim with a wide range of dining options, many enjoying some of Brisbane city’s best views.
