Why go? Wu Chow brings authentic, farm-fresh, modern Chinese food to the heart of downtown Austin, offering dishes representative of all eight styles of Chinese cuisine, as well as dim sum service on Sundays. Through their local farm and ranch partnerships, Wu Chow is able to provide guests with fresh, regionally-influenced dishes.
What to order? The usual suspects (Shanghai Soup Dumplings, Salt & Pepper Squid, Yu Xiang Eggplant and Mapo Tofu) are all on the menu, including seasonal specials such as Beijing Roast Duck. Some of our go-to dishes include Sichuan Spicy Wontons, Twice Cooked Pork Belly, Wok-Tossed Texas Okra and Sesame Peanut Noodles. But our favorite is their dim sum – yum!
Pipsqueak tip Your kids will get a kick out of their dessert baos (hint: they come shaped like animals… so cute!). Wu Chow also puts on a Lunar New Year celebration complete with ballon artist, temporary tattoos, lion dancers, face painting and photo booth – a fun event for the whole family!
