Chicken Claypot

2021-07-29T20:10:34+01:00

For a week that gets a little chillier in the middle of Summer, try our version of chicken in wine, 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 Xaoxing 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 [...]

The taste of organic chicken

2021-07-08T20:14:56+01:00

If you're curious about the difference in taste of free range organic chicken or the other alternative, there is no comparison. The taste of free range organic chicken is more delicious, tender and juicer we have found. But the more important reason we decided to offer it at the restaurant was so that you as a customer have the choice, and know where the chicken is coming from and how it has been treated. We at Naturally Chinese take this concern very seriously, and is the cornerstone of what we offer on our menu. We fully appreciate questions about food concerns [...]

July’s Chef’s Special

2021-07-08T17:37:07+01:00

Introducing Naturally Chinese's house special fried rice! ... What a sight to behold in this almost architectural sculpture of food. This is a new dish concocted by our talented chef who combines great taste and arrangement in a symphony of culinary delight. You might wonder, well, where is the rice? The element of surprise is revealed when the softly embedded casing of egg white, like a humble gift wrapped around the rice is cut open; and thereby releasing the most delicious aroma of freshly cooked special fried rice. The dish consists of king prawns, scallops, sweet corn, french beans, and organic [...]

A word of appreciation

2021-06-15T18:12:09+01:00

For those times we forget to appreciate a father's love, today is a reminder that we benefit to remember that in spite of any differences we've had with parents, we are lucky that we were given life by them. I love the saying that goes about a father: "a son's first hero, a daughter's first love". Doesn't it ring true for most of us? Indeed we are influenced by our first role models. Fifty years ago, Father’s Day may have been overlooked by many, but today it becomes more relevant. It has been reassuring to see these days that fathers are putting [...]

Father’s Day

2021-06-07T17:44:02+01:00

Like all things 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. Whether your plans might be to treat dad to a home cooked meal or with tickets to see a show, we hope that you enjoy some good quality time together. We’ll be happy to make this day memorable for you at Naturally [...]

Authentic with a modern flare

2021-05-25T14:44:41+01:00

Chinese cuisine traditionally has always maintained a healthy approach to food. It was perhaps the advent of fast food -adding MSG and other additives to preserve that developed into a new kind of Chinese cuisine. And from that there possibly could be a new spring of modern Chinese cuisine. Whether it be chopping, tossing, flash frying or carving a flower out of a vegetable, there’s an art or science to it all. And so the search to evolve the cuisine continues, listening to feedback from customers, keeping an ear to the ground to see what ingredients are healthy and sustainable, and [...]
