Soft-Shell Crab

2020-04-30T10:50:32+01:00

Many countries around the world create this dish in their own unique way. Our deep fried soft-shell crab on the menu may be a bit of a surprise to some, but it is very popular in Asian cuisine. Soft-shell crab has different varieties of course, depending on the place and the kind of crab that is local to the region. But one thing is true, and that the taste and texture of a soft-shell crab no matter how it is prepared is one to delight in and never be forgotten. The trick to getting it right is to work fast and [...]

Chicken in Wine

2020-04-30T10:50:32+01:00

This is our version of a Coq-au-vin, prepared with essentially Chinese herbs and wine. What makes it distinctive to the Chinese version of the dish is the wine - fermented rice wine known as Saoxing wine. It is sweet, almost like a sherry which gives a mild marinade to the chicken. Unlike its French counterpart, this dish uses more spice than herb, sometimes flavouring it with a bark of cinnamon but mostly star anise which is signature to asian cooking. Mushrooms are used as a matter of choice but never overpowering the taste of chicken which is the main highlight of the dish. [...]

The lightness of greens

2020-04-30T10:50:48+01:00

A big part of our cuisine uses the colour green. The leafy logo that is part of our identity denotes our partiality to green leafy vegetables in all our meal combinations. It has and remains an important component of the diet. The lightness of greens, in addition to its aesthetic appeal, is beneficial to counterbalance other foods. Our favourite and incidentally most popular is a detox mixed vegetable and a green beans side dish.  In a good sized portion that can be enjoyed even by one person alone, it is cooked in a garlic or chilli bean sauce. Singed on the outside and [...]

Culinary Insights

2020-04-30T10:50:48+01:00

It was about two years after opening the restaurant that magazine publications, bloggers and other culinary connoisseurs began to take notice of what Naturally Chinese had to offer. We had a great review in Stylist magazine back in 2015 that featured in the top  UK bars and restaurants for  healthy eating. It was a fulfilling task to bring Naturally Chinese into the culinary insights of foodies that were looking for a more healthy approach to Chinese cuisine. Chinese cuisine traditionally has always maintained a healthy approach to food. It was perhaps the advent of fast food -adding MSG and other additives [...]
