Taste of Gluten Free

2020-04-30T10:51:06+01:00

Embracing a gluten free diet is about making a lifestyle change --one based either out of necessity to not be ill from eating gluten, or the cutting out of gluten from ones eating habits and diet. The popularity of gluten free eating has been growing due to the awareness and consciousness of our bodies, our health and desire to stay vital. The taste of gluten free foods and dishes is evolving in a sophisticated way thereby making it very appealing and appetising to the taste buds. The goal at Naturally Chinese when we decided to serve gluten free food was to [...]

Natural Flavourings

2020-04-30T10:51:06+01:00

Natural flavourings are what we promote at Naturally Chinese. For a few years now, our Chefs have concocted their own chill oils made in house.

This is to bring balance of sweet, bitter, astringent and [...]

Flash of Taro

2020-04-30T10:51:07+01:00

At Naturally Chinese, our pastry chef dexterously achieves the tall flecks of pastry, which is what makes this food so coveted in Chinese dim sum. The trick he says is to [...]

Valentine’s Weekend

2020-04-30T10:51:07+01:00

We all know that "love" is a broad word that can be taken in many contexts depending on how the situation and circumstances play out. In some countries the tradition of Valentine's Day is that of cherishing friends and loved ones, in addition to being celebrated as a toast to romantic love. I imagine that there are often mixed feelings on this day as there are those who feel they have more of a reason to celebrate than others. For those who are single at this time, this is a perfect opportunity to be with close friends, look forward to the coming [...]
