Naturally Sweet


Fancy this cloud of cream for dessert? It's our coconut sorbet, which is my favourite on the dessert menu. One wouldn't think that ice creams or sorbets were in high demand during the winter months, but they often are. I usually find myself wanting to eat more ice cream in winter too. Maybe it's the warmth and cosiness of the indoors that makes it more appealing. Or perhaps, ice cream is just the number one universal comfort food. Some prefer a sorbet in the summer and ice cream in the winter. We just had a new set of dessert menus printed, [...]

Japanese Silken Tofu


Most tofu appears silky smooth but the difference with Japanese silken tofu or Hiyayakko is that it is softer, milkier with a mild flavour that can make a sweet or savoury dish.

What makes this dish exquisite is the quality of the tofu. Being one of our top dishes, it has garnered attention from enthusiasts.  In particular, we have had the pleasure of serving a gentleman who visits us from Hong Kong a [...]

Winter Liqueur Coffee


The sound of coffee beans grinding to brew an aromatic fresh cup infused with a dash of baileys or tia maria -- the winter liqueur coffee has been in top demand this month.

I'm a big fan of an after dinner coffee fix, something to inspire a finish to a good meal. One wouldn't necessarily think of Naturally Chinese to be a restaurant serving liqueur coffees and desserts, however we are a non traditional Chinese restaurant [...]

A Good Year


Just as it takes much time for flowers to bloom and nestle into a well thought out arrangement that brings beauty to the eye, I use this analogy to a work ethic and process for Naturally Chinese. 2014 has seen many exciting moments, but they've come with graft and sincerity to bring the best possible experience we can bring to you. In the Chinese calendar, we look forward to a renewal of a good year on 19th of February, and the time before that, we take to reflect and be grateful for what has come our way. This year, we've decided to commit [...]
