Dongpo Kitchen, the First-Ever U.S. Casual Dining Concept

dongpofrom China’s Premier Restaurant Group, Meizhou Dongpo, Opens at Universal CityWalk as Part of Destination’s Multi-Million Dollar Revitalization

Universal City, CA, August 15, 2016 – Dongpo Kitchen, inspired by celebrated restaurant Meizhou Dongpo and its renowned and innovative owners, Chef Mr. Wang and his wife Mrs. Liang, is now open at Universal CityWalk™, 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 become a widely respected and recognized restaurant with over 100 locations across China. In 2008, the 20-year establishment won the prestigious 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 tantalize diners with upscale and modern Sichuan cuisine within the comforts of a casual environment.  Offering both indoor and al fresco dinning, 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, spicy chicken to specialty beverage shakes such as dragon well green tea and roasted oolong milk tea.

The much anticipated arrival of Dongpo Kitchen to Universal CityWalk coincides with the vibrant outdoor epicenter’s elaborate, multi-million dollar revitalization.

For over 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.
