Chinese New Year: Peng You Kitchen & Bar Official Lauch Party

Peng You Kitchen & Bar is a new restaurant located in Gasworks Plaza. The Gasworks is shaping up to be a dining hot spot here in Brisbane! So when we were invited to attend the launch party of Peng You Kitchen & Bar we were very excited! The launch party/Chinese New Year celebration sounded like the perfect introduction to this new precinct!

"Peng-You" means "friends" which turned out to be very fitting for our night. We met new friends...shared a few drinks...and devoured some delicious bites.  It was a beautiful night! We loved the decor in Peng You. It was very cool, elegant, and relaxed. The beautiful lanterns that dangled from the ceiling casted a golden glow over the room. Great mood lighting! Perfect place to have a few drinks and nibbles with your friends after work.

The staff were very nice. Darrell even made friends with the chef who was quite the character- had us laughing most of the night!

The chef (really cool guy) ! 

The Dragon dance was a highlight! Dragon dances are performed during the Chinese New Year and are said to bring good luck to people. The longer the dance the more luck you will have! 

The chef was nice enough to make Darrell a plate to nibble on while he was taking photos of them in action! The tofu wrapped prawns were mouthwatering. 

Quick snaps of some of the lovely servers and the delicious spread. Where to begin.... ;)

Freshly made rice paper rolls, man tou, and crab claws.

Yummy fish balls and gyoza (our favorite)!  

We had an awesome time celebrating the Chinese New Year with Peng You Kitchen & Bar. Thank you to the team for a memorable night. If you haven't checked out Peng You Kitchen & Bar we recommend that you do. You won't be disappointed!
