Chef and Restaurateur Jessi Singh is gearing up to open a new restaurant in Sydney – and this time, it’s in the CBD.

Pinky-Ji will take up residence at 89 York Street and is the sibling venue to Singh’s Daughter in Law concept, which has locations in Melbourne, Adelaide and Byron Bay.

“Pinky-Ji is the younger, sassier and more independent version of our much-loved Daughter In Law,” says the chef.

“The menu will bring all of the fun and unauthentic food Daughter in Law is synonymous with to Sydney with a slightly more elevated twist.”

Singh has recruited former Chin Chin head chef Johann Jay to run the kitchen and collaborate on the menu, which will be split into snacks, raw, street, grill, wok, tandoor and curry.

Guests can look forward to crab curry croquets, charred sweet corn puree and wok-fried mud crab. The venue will also open for $20 thali on weekdays and weekend brunch.

Pinky-Ji is slated to launch in early December and will operate from 11am until late daily.

It’s the latest venue from Singh who operated restaurants in New York before moving to Melbourne in 2005, with the chef going on to expand his local footprint ever since.
