CAN you handle a ton of Tokyo Beef? To get your share, all you need to do is be at Indooroopilly Shopping Centre at 11am on Thursday.

Asian eatery FantAsia is giving away dishes of Tokyo Beef to mark its opening week at the centre.

Indooroopilly became the sixth store for the family-owned com– pany that is headed by Judy and John Wong. FantAsia aims to set the benchmark for modern Asian cuisine in Australia, Mrs Wong said.

FantAsia’s menu is built on using the freshest seasonal produce and employing traditional cooking methods, ensuring authentic Asian flavours are apparent in every bite.

We put a modern spin on Asian cuisine, offering iconic dishes from all over Asia including Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Ma– laysia, Indonesia and several Chi– nese provinces.”

Mr Wong is a chef and the pair has been in the restaurant business for more than 35 years.

In 2010, after a decade of not running their own business, friends and family urged them to “get back into food”.

They built FantAsia on a foun– dation of ensuring customers get exactly what they want — authentic fast Asian food that is value for money and served with a smile.

We pride ourselves on using only the freshest and best quality pro– duce to provide fast, filling and guilt-free meals without compromising on quality, taste or price,” Mrs Wong said.

The family has plans to build their business, which now has six stores, into a successful national franchise.

This week’s opening of the Indooroopilly store will be closely followed by one at North Lakes.

The passion that drives the Wongs and their team remains as alive today as it was when they set out on the venture.

Every new face, every customer who says ‘thanks, we really enjoyed your food’ that’s what we’re passionate about,” Mrs Wong said.
