Afternoon tea

2022-06-04T13:58:00+01:00

If you fancy an afternoon dim sum tea rather than lunch, then yourself to an experience. If typical afternoon teas seem overdone to you, then try an afternoon dim sum for a change. At Naturally Chinese, we have some of the best dim sum choices to tantalise and fulfil your taste buds. You can choose from an array of delights that will touch your heart and never be forgotten. Spoil yourself with a relaxed dim sum experience – jasmine tea or Processco and a variety of more than substantial bit-sized delectables, ranging from char shiu buns to prawn crystal dumplings to [...]

Pak Choi

2022-06-04T13:50:45+01:00

One of our top vegetable recommendations to customers: pak choi. Not only is it delicious but works as an elegant and wholesome complement to any of our dishes on the menu. And it is filled with nutritional value being high in Vitamin A and C. The dish served at the restaurant works well with a  simple garlic sauce although we can tailor it to suit your preferences. Pak Choi is one of those vegetables that can be cooked easily at home. Here are a few tips on picking a bouquet of good pak choi and cooking it. Always make sure the leaves are [...]

Celebrating Father’s Day

2022-06-04T13:39:17+01:00

Like all occasions we love to celebrate here at Naturally Chinese, Father's Day is one that ranks top of our list. We have a few dads amongst our team and I see the hopefulness and excitement on Father's Day to receive a card or a hug from their children which I find to be very endearing and heart warming. We'd love to see more of you celebrate with your dads at Naturally Chinese this Sunday, 19th of June. We source some of the best ingredients to create that timeless Peking Duck lunch or dinner experience, one that is momentous and pertinent [...]

Value and Aesthetic

2022-06-04T15:07:24+01:00

Having a great team of chefs who are not only passionate about the food but highly skilled at what they do is a big asset. Their effortless way of delivering food well cooked on a plate has proven to be an art in itself. Apart from our daily lunch and dinners, there are those occasions when a special event calls for the traditional dishes that are essential to Chinese celebrations. Our big focus has been a trinity of factors - taste, nutritional value and aesthetic and I've been comforted greatly to know that the team are working to refine these continually. [...]

Distinct taste

2022-05-09T09:40:54+01:00

From a big bowl of wanton soup to a mandarin steak sizzler, to a sweet finish of custard buns and creamy coffee, the taste of home goodness is alive and well in our cooking at Naturally Chinese. Ingredients that are sourced carefully and broths that are made from scratch in house. The idea is to enjoy every morsel of food and take time to digest and appreciate the taste of home goodness. The taste of home goodness can bring back memories of a home far away, one that we left behind for the lights of a bustling city. The ethos at [...]

Sustainable sourcing

2022-05-09T10:33:09+01:00

It’s not just about what we eat, it’s also what we contribute to our environment. It is easy to see that if we treat our environment well, and give it the care and sustainability it requires, it will take care of us in the long run. Every small deed counts, whether it be eating locally grown foods, cultivating your own vegetables in the back garden, saving on gas, energy and water, even walking more than using transportation if possible. Within the scope of all these little actions, the quest for good food is vital, for life. And by that I mean, food [...]

Energy boosting foods

2022-05-09T10:34:48+01:00

One of the most commonly used spices in our cooking is Star Anise. Shaped like a star – a woody, refreshing flavour really works well with our braised stews and hot pots. So also the Cloves that are part of the five spice mix. Cloves provide that dynamic variety of pungent, slightly smoky and somewhat sweet like essence that contribute a great deal to a nuanced taste. And even though the five spice mix is called just that, it contains more than five spices admittedly adding the extra bits of lime seed, even rice, fennel and coriander which make an unsuspecting [...]

The joy of eating

2022-04-11T10:10:14+01:00

Chinese cuisine is undoubtedly more complex than it might seem. The finer foods require attention to subtle details that elevate the dining experience, by finding ways to keep the dishes delicious without compromising on the nutritional benefits. To enjoy a small bowl of rice, some kind of meat and vegetables is a luxury in itself. Bringing together a group of foods to accentuate taste, delight, aroma and nourishment is the complex simplicity of Chinese cuisine. A good chef knows how much cinnamon, sichuan pepper or fennel to use in a pot au feu, and it takes years of understanding the elements [...]
