Khanh Ong delights guests with his culinary skills & knowledge at Miss Ping’s as they celebrate their 4th Birthday & mission to bring authentic Thai cuisine to the heart of Glen Waverley!

Miss Ping’s, Thai restaurant in Melbourne’s Glen Waverley, celebrated its fourth birthday on Monday evening, guests were in for a treat with a remarkable culinary journey led by Master Chef’s very own Khanh Ong. Alongside him was the restaurant’s founder, Winnie Chiang, who together took guests including myself to a flavoursome summer menu.

Miss Ping’s showcased a selection of dishes deeply rooted in Thai traditions yet thoughtfully tailored for the Australian taste buds. Among the revolutionary additions were tantalising Mama Noodles, exquisite Green Papaya Salad with Salmon Sashimi and heavenly Chu Chee Curry with Barramundi, each dish resonating with the vibrant flavours of Thailand. 

Khanh Ong whom we all know and love from Australia’s Master Chef delighted guests with his culinary skills and knowledge. As a proud advocate of Asian cuisine, his presence at Miss Ping’s was highly anticipated by food enthusiasts and fans alike.

Throughout the evening, guests were treated to a delicious selection of Thai dishes, each carefully crafted to showcase the unique flavours and ingredients that make Thai cuisine so special. The reimagined version of their famous Som Tum was superbly presented and even served to guests by Khanh himself making sure that each guest was served some of the special ingredients. 

Miss Ping’s Thai Eatery remains committed to its mission of bringing authentic Thai cuisine to the heart of Glen Waverley. This birthday celebration is a testament to their dedication to authenticity, innovation, and the culinary wonders of Thailand.
