New Years Eve

2020-04-30T10:53:24+01:00

After a much deserved break, we've had a good start to the week. The weather being much warmer although windy makes it perfect for that hot pot of goodness that we cook up here at the hands of our esteemed chefs. And while preparations for the last day of 2015 are taking place; it's time to clear out the old to make room for the new. We're open tomorrow (new years' eve) as well as January 1st. So book your table to celebrate the beginning of something special for 2016. If you are in the mood for an auspicious aromatic duck [...]

A Restful Christmas

2020-04-30T10:53:25+01:00

In addition to the feast and festivities, Christmas to me is more about family and rejuvenation. At Naturally Chinese, our staff is like family too. Our celebration kicked off earlier this week with a staff party that was a wonderful gathering to appreciate a good 2015 and that after a long journey of putting together a reliable team, our staff have delivered and we are very thankful for this. We cooked a traditional roast accompanied by some vintage reds that elevated the dining experience. We also had some other interesting embellishments like a seafood salad prepared by our top chef Chiu, and delectable [...]

A little Luxury

2020-04-30T10:53:25+01:00

With Christmas comes the desire to feel young like a child - mesmerized by the magic of the winter wonderland. There are many luxuries life has to offer us and of course it's all matter of perspective how we choose to find them. The small luxuries make life's journey light and fun - a card from a colleague, a flower from someone special, even a box of home-made sweets we receive from a friend, and just like that, we feel loved and cared for. With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, longer hours of work, I've had to work harder [...]

Star Anise & Mulled Wine

2020-04-30T10:53:25+01:00

Of all our spices, Star Anise is definitely the treasured one. The fruit of an evergreen tree grown in China and Vietnam, this woodland spice springs forth memories distant and makes possible the scope to create more. A casserole in Chinese cooking isn't quite complete without the magic of star anise.  It especially works well with meats and meaty vegetables. It's woody smokiness is like a cure that perfumes and adds elegance. At Christmas, I look forward to stirring up some mulled wine just so I can drop a few pods of star anise into the pot. That to me strikes [...]
