Ma Chim – Opening Soon

From Indian street eats and out-of-the-box ramen joints to neighbourhood craft-beer pubs and intimate wine bars, Rosalie Village has flourished into one of Brisbane’s finest drinking and dining hubs. The precinct’s foodie evolution will continue this May with the opening of Ma Chim, a Thai-inspired eatery boasting its own hidden micro bar. The brainchild of Bowyo Muangsong (co-owner of Ping Pong in Newstead and executive chef of Yolk and Morning After) and her brother Yew Muangsong, Ma Chim (a Thai phrase that translates to ‘come and taste it’) will see the siblings showcase authentic flavours from across Thailand. Ma Chim will boast approximately 50 seats across indoor and outdoor spaces, with green garden-like tones and marble table tops, accented by pink and blue plates and cutlery imported from Thailand. In the kitchen, Bowyo and Yew will be serving a comprehensive menu that encompasses family recipes and regional specialties. The offering will start with snacks like Esan-style fermented pork and rice sausage, turmeric-pork satay skewers and honey-chicken baos, before expanding to include salads, grilled dishes, soups and hot-pot meals, noodle and rice dishes, mains, and curries (including a ten-hour slow-cooked beef cheek panang curry and a Maryland chicken massaman curry). Ma Chim will be licensed, with the bar dispensing Thai-inspired cocktails, beer buckets, soju and vino from Joval Wines. Ma Chim is set to open to the public in mid-to-late May – check in soon for a detailed look inside.
