Rotisserie Platters


Often a choice that may be overlooked is the Rotisserie platter. Our specialized rotisserie chef is trained in getting the meats to the finest textures that grace the art of rotisserie. On our corner of rotisserie meats on the menu, take note of the crispy pork belly which is like a fine delicacy in Chinese cuisine. Cooked to perfection with succulent juices and crackling rind around, this dish has to be one of my favourites. The fat is just as important as the tenderness of the meat and the crispiness of the rind.  We offer a variety dish of rotisserie meats which include [...]

A Signature Dessert


Whether it's a cold windy evening or a sweltering summer's day, the taste and comfort of a crispy cream bun from our menu makes for a signature dessert. I often have this as an instant pick-me-up after a hectic day, pairing it with a heart warming cup of coffee or tea.  In times past, going back to the days of the silk route where tea houses would serve yum cha to its travelers, the delight of little morcels accompanying a cup of tea would provide replenishment and a sense of satisfaction for the long road ahead. Thereby a tradition of dim [...]

Chicken in Cashew Nuts and Bean Sauce


Home is where the heart is and in this case the heart lies in the essence of this dish of surprise and splendour --Chicken in cashew nuts and bean sauce!

Art of The Claypot


Claypots form one of the main dishes in Chinese Cuisine. Many countries around the world use a form of claypot -- a pot that infuses a slow heat to cook food in a delicate way. There is a comfort factor that exists in the art of the claypot. Perhaps it's the earthiness and non steely quality that brings it to the dish. At Naturally Chinese, claypots add to the aesthetic of authentic and clean tasting dishes we have to offer. Being served a pork belly, chicken or aubergine recipe in one of the claypots brings a warmth and a true sense [...]

Feel The Fear


Fear can be an inspiring and impactful feeling. If you agree, you’ll know that we all feel fear almost on a daily basis. No matter how big or small the fear, we know it is uncomfortable, but in that discomfort, we can be catapulted to do amazing things in our lives. I’m a firm believer in feeling the fear and using it to take action. My story begins from the point of fear. I arrived in the UK as a refugee from Vietnam with close to nothing. Growing up, fear fuelled the emotional tank until I finally understood what it took [...]
