Szechuan style cooking


The cold weather makes us crave spice and variety in our diet. A slender red or green chilli set on a dish of almost anything definitely piques our excitement and interest, and even the sight and aroma can do wonders for the body and mind. Spices used in Chinese cuisine perform various functions in enhancing or even subduing over-powering flavours that can come across too strong. Come to think of it, they all have their part to play in serving the dining experience and providing vitality at the same time. Our szechuan style chicken or king prawn dish is the perfect concoction [...]

Winter warmth and comfort


Eating well during the winter months counts for a lot. When the cold steals away our warmth, it’s vital to take care of our bodies by nurturing, celebrating and sharing. Food brings us these benefits and when shared, can bring healing and light into our days and nights. Which would you say are the foods that bring you warm comfort in the winter? And how do you cook them, if you do? Perhaps it is the way the dish is prepared or its texture, saltiness, even sweetness, but my favourite foods to look forward to this season are the rich dark vegetables. [...]

A Christmas Feast


Celebrate this festive season with one of the most auspicious dishes on our menu. The art of roasting duck has been in practice since Imperial times of the dynastic eras in China. Traditionally, the delectable Peking duck is served on most auspicious of occasions. The ceremonial aspect of slicing the crispy outer layer of the roast at the dinner table in front of guests is what makes a great presentation when ordering this dish. Apart from the duck itself, the trimmings are just as important. Finely sliced or julienned vegetables like cucumber and radish are wrapped delicately into a homemade pancake, [...]

Setting Your Christmas Table


Christmas trees decorated. Lights lining the window panes looking as Christmasy as they can. And what’s left now is all the planning, list making, shopping and also what we tend to leave out last — the relaxing for the holidays. Christmas being essentially the season for family and friends to make time to gather and re-connect is a special one, calling for special things in our life, special food that makes us feel happy and fulfilled.

Heart warming season


Braising in a hot clay pot retaining its moisture and warmth, this dish can be enjoyed with a steamy bowl of rice and a side of green vegetable. A full to medium bodied wine like our house or shiraz works very well with this hot pot. I have a particular fondness for Autumn and especially the advent of Winter. It puts me in the mood to take comfort in a heart warming claypot, accompanied with the perfectly paired glass of wine. We are about to step into the Winter season, so let’s make the best of it this year. Of all [...]

Bold flavours


We take pride in our heartwarming dishes that present a distinct dark, rich gravy to achieve perfect balance of flavour. For those who enjoy a hearty bit of pork, choose from cutlets in a honey peppercorn sauce, sweet and sour sauce or a sea salt and peppercorn cure. And it has been common practice for patrons to mop up all those succulent juices that make these dishes special. A favourite all year round, this dish holds a special place for the onset of Autumn. The tender meat with sweet peppers in a black bean sauce offers the chance to enjoy the [...]
