Miss Chow’s open south of the river at owner’s ‘dream site’

OPENING the first south of the river expansion for Asian eatery Miss Chow’s is the realisation of a long-held dream to dish up a ‘dream site’ for tourists on the South Perth foreshore.

Owner Jacquie Chan said the chance to snare the Mends Street corner location for Miss Chow’s came up almost three years ago.

“That’s always been my dream site,” she said.

“It’s the best location, overlooking the waters and city as the backdrop.”

Miss Chow’s South Perth will be on the ground floor of Echelon apartments – where Mediterranean restaurant Incontro was until it closed in 2017.

Ms Chan said current disruptions to the area because of Connect South construction works was not an issue as the foreshore activation would be better for tourists getting off the ferry come summer.

“There wasn’t much to offer when they get off the ferry but now they’ve got options available for them,” she said.

“We’re excited to be south of the river finally, we’ve got regulars who have been waiting patiently.”

After the success of the first Miss Chow’s at Claremont Quarter in 2015, Ms Chan has also opened Miss Chow’s at Whitford City, Rice Baby in Subiaco and The Pantry in City Beach.

She was tight-lipped on changes to the menu for the South Perth restaurant but said there would be more seafood options.

“We do have quite a few new dishes that we are introducing but that is going to be a surprise,” she said.

Ms Chan will soon open an Oriental Market and Grocer in Stirling Street in Perth.
