It is a thrill that Flower Drum have ordered black garlic supplies from Garlicious Grown after a successful tasting with Wes Smith - thanks Wes. Flower Drum is a leading Australian restaurant, well used to bringing the best from Australian ingredients. Their website highlights:
"IN 1975, GILBERT LAU OPENED THE FLOWER DRUM IN CHINATOWN ON LITTLE BOURKE STREET. WHAT BEGAN AS A HUMBLE DESIRE TO SERVE GOOD CANTONESE FOOD TO THE PEOPLE IN AUSTRALIA SOON GREW TO BE A REPUTABLE RESTAURANT THAT SENT FOOD CRITICS INTO AN EXCITED FLURRY. GILBERT’S HIGH STANDARDS FOR BOTH HIMSELF AND HIS STAFF ALLOWED CANTONESE CUISINE TO PENETRATE THE TOUGH AUSTRALIAN FOOD MARKET, ULTIMATELY ESTABLISHING A CHINESE RESTAURANT THAT WOULD RIVAL THE DOMINANT EUROPEAN CUISINES."
Can't wait to see their creative ideas in action! Interior photo from the Herald Sun
