What’s your idea of a traditional Christmas Day lunch? A hectic couple of hours in the kitchen, disorder around the table, and then a gargantuan pile of dirty dishes that will have you washing every single piece of crockery and pan in sight. There must be another way?
For those in the know, going out on everybody’s favourite day of the year for lunch with family and friends is a sure-fire winner. If you have an adventurous spirit and a palate that likes to wander the globe, The Star Gold Coast’s newly opened contemporary Chinese restaurant, Uncle Su, is the seamless choice for you and your close ones to celebrate Christmas Day lunch. Sit back as world-class Head Chef Song Yao Su and his team deliver a one-off taste experience: minus any overcooked ham and sickly-sweet Christmas Pudding!
On Christmas Day, Uncle Su is offering a buffet-style lunch for the ages. Priced at $148pp for Adults and $50 for Kids aged 5-14, no one will be left unsatisfied over the sumptuous serving of Chinese favourites. A Shrimp Seasonal Fruit Salad starts things off before diners are served up a Special Dim Sum Platter brimming with pastries and dumplings featuring crab and BBQ pork. A deliciously prepared Seafood Tom Yum Goon Soup precedes the onslaught of delectable main dishes for you to try, such as Sauteed King Prawns with Capsicum in Thai Sauce and Filet Mignon with King Mushrooms in Black Pepper Sauce. Dessert will conclude your feast, a delicious and light Coconut and Mango Mousse with Egg Custard Tart. Yum!
And don’t forget, if your New Year’s plans still haven’t written themselves (come on, folks. It’s not that far off now), Uncle Su still has a scattering of bookings left for the big night.
So once the big day is done and dusted, and you are left in that weird limbo stage between Christmas and NYE don’t be left frantically trying to organise your annual celebration.
The biggest night of the year at least deserves a beautiful meal — are we not right? Uncle Su is offering you the chance to share a tasty feast before you party it up with a first sitting option or a more extended second sitting where you can dine slowly and see in the new year. The first sitting from 5.30pm – 7.30pm offers the full a la carte menu for those who’d like to choose their delicacies for the evening. However if you’re looking to be greeted with a champagne on arrival and a more catered affair, arrive at 8pm to experience a 4-course banquet menu of sensational flavours, like Prawn and Pork Dumplings with Abalone, before the main courses of Steamed Toothfish Fillet with Baby Choy, Fried Rice with Minced Beef and Lettuce and Pan-Fried King Prawns in Spicy Sauce that’ll all knock your tastebuds sideways. Priced at $148pp, this is an adults only experience.
Rest assured, if you’re open to a mouth-watering and less Aussie traditional Christmas Day lunch, this is the option you have been waiting for. Or should you want to see in the New Year with delicious savours of Cantonese and Szechuan cuisine and a brilliant drinks list to match — Uncle Su has you well and truly covered for both.
Don’t delay; make your bookings here now.
