BEST FOR One of Joburg’s most ex­cit­ing food ex­pe­ri­ences, an en­tranc­ing se­quence of de­li­cious dishes pre­pared by the inim­itable Su-yen Thorn­hill. FOOD It’s not a Chi­nese restau­rant and it’s not a typ­i­cal tast­ing menu. Su-yen is part Chi­nese and her food fuses global in­flu­ences. The menu uses the fresh­est sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents. You could en­joy crab meat ‘lol­lipops’ on the claw with fresh salsa. Or the best chicken soup of a life­time: egg-drop soup with the depth of long-cooked mush­rooms, corn and a swirl of noo­dles and egg. Veg­e­tar­i­ans and ve­g­ans are beau­ti­fully catered for. Caramelised whisky ba­nana serves as a taste and tex­ture foil for the re­fresh­ing fruity-juicy pops of palm sago. DRINKS BYO. SER­VICE It’s more like a pri­vate party than a restau­rant. Pay­ment is made when book­ing. AM­BI­ENCE Chez Fong is lo­cated on a stately home’s ve­randa, with a stag­ger­ing view in sum­mer and cosy with gas lamps in win­ter. (MLE)
