There’s a new restaurant player in town at Universal CityWalk. Dongpo Kitchen, inspired by restaurant Meizhou Dongpo and its owners, Chef Mr. Wang and his wife Mrs. Liang, is serving up authentic Sichuan cuisine in the first-ever U.S. casual dining concept exclusively at the iconic open-air destination.
Renowned for its Sichuan-style fusion of traditional and creative cooking, Meizhou Dongpo has more than 100 locations across China. In 2008, the 20-year establishment won the honor of catering the Beijing Olympic Games for thousands of athletes from across the globe within the Olympic Village.
Located at the heart of CityWalk in a completely remodeled, artisan-inspired venue, Dongpo Kitchen will offer diners upscale and modern Sichuan cuisine within the comforts of a casual environment. Offering both indoor and al fresco dining, the new CityWalk restaurant serves Southern Californians, and guests visiting from around the globe, a variety of signature dishes ranging from Dongpo fried noodles, roasted duck salad and spicy chicken to specialty beverage shakes such as dragon well green tea and roasted oolong milk tea.
The highly anticipated arrival of Dongpo Kitchen to Universal CityWalk coincides with the vibrant outdoor epicenter’s elaborate, multi-million dollar revitalization.
For more than 20 years, CityWalk has boosted the city’s rhythm through a foundation built on providing memorable entertainment experiences. With a series of dramatic enhancements currently underway that includes the introduction of new restaurants, shopping experiences, visually aesthetic design features and a state-of-the-art movie theatre renovation, the spotlight shines brightly on CityWalk as it continues to resonate as one of L.A.’s most influential lifestyle centers.
Universal CityWalk includes the high-tech concert venue, “5 Towers,” L.A.’s best movie-going experience at the Universal Cinemas and unique venues such as Dongpo Kitchen, Samba Brazilian Steakhouse, LudoBird, iFly indoor skydiving and mechanical bull-riding at Saddle Ranch Chop House.
