Singaporean restaurateur Ellen Chew has picked Grand Central in Birmingham as the flagship location for her new foodservice concept Mrs Chew’s Chinese Kitchen.
The brand is part of the Chew-on-This restaurant group, which she founded following two decades in the industry with restaurants such as London’s Rasa Sayang and Shan Shui in Bicester Village.
The menu at Mrs Chew’s will focus on serving simple and authentic Chinese dishes from time-honoured recipes using the freshest ingredients.
The 1,500 square foot 60-cover eatery, which is located opposite @pizza and Holy Moly Macaroni, is scheduled to open in the winter.
“Mrs Chew’s will be dedicated to serving unpretentious Chinese cuisine, using premium ingredients and building on our experience of running successful Asian-inspired restaurants throughout London and the south east,” she explained.
“Birmingham has been an aim for our expansion for some time, and is the natural next step for our group. Grand Central is such a vibrant and energetic venue, where we will be able to cater to the desire for fresh and authentic flavours.”
The site will open in line with current safety guidelines. This includes masks for staff, frequent sanitising throughout, and social distancing.
Grand Central is one of three destinations that comprise the Bullring Estate, with The Bullring and Link Street.
