WHY GO

In­dulge in de­li­cious Szechuan fare in a warm and tra­di­tional am­bi­ence in this es­tab­lished bas­tion for Chi­nese cui­sine in Jo­hor Bahru.

Famed for its Pek­ing duck, this is the starter to opt for. Wrapped in thin pan­cakes with cu­cum­ber sliv­ers, spring onion flo­rets and sweet bean sauce, the crispy duck skin proves to be a no­table cur­tain-raiser.

The Sichuanese legacy of the restau­rant comes to the fore with the sig­na­ture brin­jal braised with minced chicken. Ev­ery bite of the melt­ingly ten­der brin­jal steeped in tangy, sweet and spicy sauce hits the spot. Equally on-point is the deep­fried bean curd with wa­ter chest­nuts in which soft, crisp and crunchy tex­tures tickle the taste buds. The clay­pot-served prawns with ver­mi­celli is sweet and springy and is a dish best taken while it’s still hot.

Fa­mil­iar dessert op­tions such as gui lin gao (Chi­nese herbal jelly) and hon­ey­dew and sago tong sui (sweet broth) are ex­cel­lent choices to wrap up the meal on a high note. They are a treat with the airy-light fried egg white dumplings with red bean paste.
