Yūgen Dining

605 Chapel Street
South Yarra, 3141

Are you ready to go big? In an event not to be missed, Dan Hong, executive chef at Merivale Group (Mr Wong, Ms G's, Sushi-E, Queen Chow) brings his culinary expertise and no-holds-barred love of flavour to Yūgen Dining for two special evenings.

The culinary creative spirit behind some of Sydney's most exciting destinations and one of the city's fastest rising talents, Dan will be taking over the kitchen at award-winning Yugen, teaming up with Alex Yu and executive chef Stephen Nairn to offer diners a modern Asian menu of six flavour-packed courses. You’ll receive a cocktail on arrival, and wine pairings will be available, both in Delicious and – naturally – Baller modes. Dan himself will also be providing beats for the night, for a truly immersive, maximum Hongstagram experience.

"I’ll be cooking up a storm with Steve and Alex,” says Dan. “The style and ethos of Yūgen Dining really resonates with me and I’ll be developing one-off dishes that will be unique to this particular event rather than dishes on the current menus at any of my restaurants. It’s gonna be hectic."
