Chomp 68 now open at Hawaiian's Bassendean

02 Jul 2019

If you haven’t eaten at Chomp 68 at Hawaiian’s Bassendean you're missing out.

Renowned chef Sonny Wong has opened his first restaurant in Bassendean, after a successful career at some of Perth’s leading world class hotels and restaurants including the Hyatt Regency and Crown Towers.

Chomp 68 opened in April and is a fresh and modern Chinese restaurant.

Sonny’s extensive experience in the kitchen includes 7½ years at Joes Oriental Diner at the Hyatt, Epicurean restaurant at Crown, Wagamama and Midori Teppanyaki & Bar.

Sonny Wong said his dream has always been to open a restaurant of his own. "I remember watching my uncle cook when I was a young boy and thought I want to do that one day," he said.

“After many years working and fine tuning my skills and technique for other restaurants, I felt the time was right to create something of my own.

“The past year has been a lot of hard work, walking into my own restaurant everyday feels good.

“I’ve had a lot of regular customers over the years and my new venture brings together two things that make me happy, cooking and people.

“I always feel a sense of achievement when customers enjoy the food I make.

“My signature dish is creamy butter king prawns. The recipe was inspired by my mum because of her love of seafood, so it has a lot of sentimental value," Sonny said.
