Chives and Chinese cooking, explained by the best restaurant in Parramatta

One of the smallest and most delicate members of the onion family, chives are a very popular ingredient used in Chinese cooking. The chefs at the best restaurant in Parramatta use a variety of Asian chives such as Chinese chives, garlic chives or Kuchai. Chives can be used in almost any Asian dish, from stir fries to dumplings and pack great flavour for such a small ingredient.

Garlicky in flavour and juicy and crisp in texture, Chinese yellow chives have been grown under cover without exposure to sunlight. You can find Chinese yellow chives at Asian markets, however our Chinese restaurant in Parramatta want to warn you of their smell, as they tend to have a distinct noxious fume in their raw state.

Our Yum Cha in Parramatta use chives in many different types of dishes. Pork is very commonly stir fried with chives, however, when paired with eggs the chives provide a very delicate texture to the complete dish. Adding finely chopped chives to dumplings and wontons is also a must in our private dining in Parramatta.

To try our delicious meals that are complemented with chives, make sure you contact and make a booking at the best restaurant in Parramatta.
