WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Chinese -

If you trea­sure the heat fac­tor in your cui­sine, this el­e­gant restau­rant serves up some mean Sichuan cui­sine that will em­phat­i­cally light your fire.

Be­gin with ap­petis­ing soups – the sig­na­ture eight trea­sure seafood soup gar­ners well-bal­anced flavours while the Sichuan hot and sour soup stirs up the ap­petite.

The spicy seafood com­bi­na­tion is marked as ‘medium’ spicy, but we find the creamy curry dish mel­low. Co­conut milk is in­cor­po­rated into the Thai-in­spired stir-fry, and the ac­com­pa­ny­ing man tao buns are good for sop­ping up the rich gravy. A gen­er­ous sprin­kling of toasted and crushed peanuts im­bues the dish with tex­ture and crunch.

Com­ing highly rec­om­mended is the chong qing diced chicken with dried chilli. Chopped into bite-sized morsels and tossed with dried Sichuan pep­pers, the crispy meat will leave tongues with a slow sear that crescen­dos into full-on heat. A dish of Hong Kong kai lan bal­ances off the heat and sports in­ter­est­ing vari­ances in tex­tures.

Cap the fiery meal with gluti­nous rice balls with sesame, which con­sists of a sat­is­fy­ing ra­tio of sweet dumpling skin to black sesame paste fill­ing.
