Luke Nguyen's Fat Noodle at The Star

  • Written by Chloe Sollom

One of Australia's leading celebrity chefs and the man behind The Star's Fat Noodle, Luke Nguyen has drawn on inspiration from his travels to introduce new dishes to Fat Noodle's Pan-Asian menu.

“Some of my old favourites like our signature pho dish cooked in 400 litre kettles with oxtail and wagyu will remain, however we've introduced some exciting new additions including the Burmese Heirloom Tomato Salad, Cod Fish Fillet Curry and Yunnan Miao Hot & Sour Prawn – just to name a few,” says Luke.

“The appetite for Asian style dishes is growing and with this comes a demand to continue to bring new offerings to our hawker-style menu.”

Luke says it's the dynamic mix of Fat Noodle's talented chefs from all over the world that has helped to contribute to the diverse Asian-fusion flavours found on the Fat Noodle menu.

“We have chefs from Cambodia, Vietnam, China, Korea, Thailand and Malaysia. Everyone brings ideas from their homeland which culminates to make something really special.”

Fat Noodle's new menu will be available for dinner from Thursday, 23 July 2015.

New items on the Fat Noodle menu include:
