An elegant dish

2020-06-28T22:00:37+01:00

If you haven’t tried this yet, it’s a dish that will not disappoint. At Naturally Chinese, we make ours in a yellow bean sauce. Although black bean is more popular in Sichuan and Cantonese cooking, to use the yellow bean brings out the umami of the mix of chicken and cashew nuts. Both ingredients fortified in proteins make this an excellent choice for a meal at anytime of the day. Yellow bean has a sweeter taste to black bean. Black beans also have a stronger flavour which pairs very well with red meats and hearty vegetables. Yellow bean being milder in [...]

Sharing and caring

2020-06-28T22:01:25+01:00

Sharing a meal is beneficial on so many levels. Aside from a good feeling of well being that comes from sitting down with others to eat, one can also monitor portion sizes (which are an important factor in eating healthily). A meal at Naturally Chinese would typically include a main dish of fish/seafood, some kind of meat or vegetable, a side of greens, a soup or a side of rice. So therefore, one can get the benefit of a wide variety of nutrients and colours in the meal. And of course, a glass of wine brings pleasure and enhances the whole [...]

Distinct Flavour

2020-06-22T17:13:44+01:00

We offer a variety dish of rotisserie meats which include roasted duck, crispy skin pork belly and barbecued fillet of pork. The Chinese five spices are often used as a spice rub on our rotisserie meats to give them the distinct flavour and tenderness . Our chefs marinade these for long periods of time where the flavour is absorbed. These platters make for a perfect sharing dish amongst a family or a big party. 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 [...]

Father's Day falls on this coming Sunday, the 21st of June. The weather leaves open the possibilities to treat your dad to a fantastic Father’s Day celebration.

Good Food Sourcing

2020-06-01T17:42:35+01:00

Sustainable food sourcing can be highly rewarding to everyone on many levels. In a restaurant where ingredients need to be carefully supervised for quality, sourced and replenished, it helps staff feel good about what they are serving and respectively, makes the customers feel safe about what they are eating. On a more individual level, say at home — one can be selective about what they buy when they check to see if they are supporting more seasonal produce and looking at the shelf life of the food they buy. In a time when we don’t always know where our food comes [...]

For that kick of spice

2020-05-27T13:44:36+01:00

For that kick of spice to the palette, this makes for an exciting dish to order and try at least once. Our chefs make it in a way that is unique to Naturally Chinese’s ethos of natural flavour and clean taste. There is no MSG to enhance or over power flavour. The aroma is testament to how potent these Szechuan peppers really are –the flower pepper that is relished in the region it is grown. Interestingly, this dish although sea food, is paired well with our house red wine or a glass of Rioja. Our szechuan style chicken or king prawn dish [...]

Good Health

2020-05-19T12:28:05+01:00

We are in the midst of a big change in our world, and we are all connected no matter where we are. Health and wellness are words that are used together, and reason being because one feeds in to the other. The quest for good health comes through a conscious search for wellness. For us, health and wellness have always been the centerpoint focus for what we offer and now more than ever in our world's status quo, we feel it of paramount importance to enhance our services and cuisine in conjunction with these two factors. It's time to pay attention [...]

The topic of wellness and health are big on my mind these days. In light of the current situation of pandemic, it’s hard not to wonder how long is all this going to carry on until. Are things going to go back to normal soon? There isn’t a clear answer to these questions that is on everyone’s mind. We however can take action with regard to that which we can control such as our health and well being. For the ethos of Naturally Chinese which has always been striving to meet one’s needs of healthy eating with clean tasting aesthetic in [...]

New Takeaway Plan

2020-05-09T11:29:41+01:00

A warm greeting from us at Naturally Chinese to all our patrons and friends. We wanted to take the opportunity to get in touch with you and update you with our latest developments. It has been nearly a month since our restaurant closure in accordance with government advice and regulations. Though we were permitted to do takeaways, we had made the decision to close fully as it is almost next to impossible to keep a normal kitchen with a full menu running on half a dozen chefs and even more staff, due to inability to maintain the two-meter distancing policy between [...]

Taking Care of Our Health

2020-04-30T10:31:16+01:00

As the status quo forces us to pay attention to how vulnerable we can be at anytime, we must all bear in mind that taking care of our health is of grave importance. When we think about food and consuming it, two factors come into play: what are the choices of food we have to eat, and secondly, how do we obtain them as quickly as possible. Many times the stress of life takes over our better judgement and we can forget to take time to evaluate what we put into our bodies. There is a post that I had previously [...]
