Just when you think you know Chinese food, along comes a talent like Zheng Hua Zeng, whose mastery of heat, smoke and spice will shatter what you think you know about Chinese regional cuisine. The large dining room exudes Chinese elegance, with heavy, glass-topped, rosewood tables, ebony screens and embroidered chandeliers, making it an ideal choice for families and groups.
Sichuan food is perfect for sharing, and the menu abounds with both fiery and mild selections, with generous serves and large dishes you will want to linger over. Spicy cumin lamb has plenty of zing, while chicken in red chilli – another Sichuan classic – features succulent morsels of deep-fried chicken among a small mountain of radiant red chillis. A stirfry of steamed-then-sliced pork belly sings with garlic, leeks and more chilli, while sides like lettuce stem in house-made chilli oil are tantalising, with cool crisp lettuce offset by the heat of the oil and spicy funk of black vinegar.
PSST! Cool night? Grab a two-toned Sichuan hotpot and enjoy the best of both spicy and savoury – perfect for groups.
