Happy 9th Birthday Naturally Chinese

2021-04-07T12:18:15+01:00

Through thick and thin, and the amazing journey we've had so far, we celebrate our 9th anniversary this year! When I look back over the years, I'm overwhelmed by the bundle of great moments -- recollections of a bustling restaurant on Saturday nights, happy customers, the aroma of tantalising dishes. Also, the moments of challenges, fears and making it through. And here we are today, standing proud and still going after nine amazing years. Our vision from the beginning to serve food to all kinds of preferences resulted in one of our best developments – that of creating a gluten-free Chinese [...]

A new season of appreciation

2021-03-31T14:19:42+01:00

The beauty in nature is abundant and never short of inspiring. Just as a connection with nature is vital for our well being, so also is our connection with natural foods. The two are interconnected.  At Naturally Chinese, I follow on the ethos of keeping a connection with nature, be it in the flower pots on every table to the combination of dishes that fit well together. When a natural ingredient is used, say for instance turmeric, even the colour appeals to the eye as natural and safe as compared to a synthetic food colouring. It’s simple details such as these [...]

Seafood delights

2021-03-24T15:14:10+00:00

With the onset of Spring, it makes a wonderful addition to a range of fun and flavoursome dishes to pair with light wines, even prosecco. It also is one for all seasons being great to pair with a Summer wine and deliciously comforting with a warming wine in winter. The squid fillet can be found on our appetizer/ starter section. First the hot peppery king prawns, now proceeding with an ongoing series of some of our favourite spicy chilli inspired dishes, make way for the salt and chilli squid. A traditionally Hong Kong style concoction, but inspired with the twist of Hunan [...]

Mother’s Day Weekend

2021-03-09T18:51:03+00:00

Spring is just around the corner ---cherry trees blossoming and daffodils peering out waiting to bloom. It’s exciting — the change of season, and especially the change from Winter to Spring. At Naturally Chinese, we love to undertake the warming welcome of Spring with flavours to put a kick back in your step. And with Mother’s Day on the 14th of March, we look forward to serving you a special rotisserie selection.

Choose To Challenge

2021-03-08T13:26:24+00:00

Women need to support other women, be ambitious for change and see the bigger picture.  The 2021 campaign slogan is #ChooseToChallenge  #IWD2021 — this is powerful in that as women, we need to all do our part, no matter how small or big. It all makes a difference. The day also pushes for a call to action to stand up to gender inequalities in all areas of work and life. One that is extremely important is championing for Womens’ education. It is when a women feels empowered that she can reassure her children that they are safe. She can help other women. [...]

Clean Tasting and Gourmet

2021-02-28T15:25:57+00:00

The care that goes into food preparation affects the food we eat. At a restaurant, you know the feeling when a dish is being served to you with diligence and care. The presentation, smell, taste, texture –the entire experience should add benefit to your overall mood and leave you feeling hopefully, in an elevated state. The value for healthy, natural and unprocessed food to me, is one of the greater things to offer. It’s a struggle in today’s world as there are various factors that make it difficult to sustain. But therein lies the desire even more so, to see the [...]

Fresh and Frozen Dim Sum

2021-02-24T17:59:40+00:00

The art to enjoying dim sum lies in spacing those delicate bites in between a heart warming beverage together with what your eyes take in from the delectable pastries set before you. It seems to enhance the flavours even more and bring a kind of lightness and joy to the aesthetic. The tradition began in China when travellers on the Silk Road stopped for rest at little tea houses for yum cha. As people started to realise that tea was a good digestive with food, the tea house owners started serving little bite sized snacks to their guests. From there grew this [...]

Celebration packed Weekend

2021-02-06T14:09:19+00:00

Valentine's day is this weekend, and together with it you might be celebrating Chinese New Year too. The month of the peach blossom as many know it in China, is when the sweet smelling blossom begins to bloom and falls delicately to the ground. This denotes the coming of Spring and the air filled with romance for new love to blossom. With their perfumed fragrance and relation to the rose, jasmine and elderflower groups, they are also used as edible decoration. Spring brides in China usually have a peach blossom in their bouquets to signify fertility, love, and good luck in [...]

We offer you a feast you might consider featuring our delicate rotisserie meats which include roasted duck, crispy skin pork belly and barbecued fillet of pork.

Soup for the soul

2021-01-29T15:50:12+00:00

Soups and hot broths are back in season. We pride ourselves on these delicious concoctions made of ginger, greens, berries and more. What they offer is a well balanced meal bringing you protein, fibres and fats all in one. And of course, a little carbohydrate to energize you if you are feeling the winter blues. For those days when the air is chillier, a soup or broth will keep your heart warm. With a few windy days coming our way leading us into a change of season, there’s always some kind of adjustment to be made. Whether it is eating well [...]
