Fine Dining Authentic Chinese sampler Feb 16, 2010
The taste bud of the people in China and those in Indonesia is totally different. The first being less spicy, more oily, sour & salty and the latter being a lot more sweet, rich in spice and intricate in the way they tie together.
This restaurant tries to introduce Chinese taste to this new crowd. It does so by combining different taste from various parts of China. For the spicy-liking Indonesians, the dishes from Sichuan, for the sweet tooths, the dishes from southern China and Hong Kong.
My favourite is the spicy beef.
To make it even more authentic, they serve Chinese rice wine. It definitely goes well with the food but not with the weather.
