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.
