One of Chinatown’s gems produced another great meal. This Guizhou restaurant offers reliable high standard of cooking and old punchy flavours.
For lunch we had:
Villagers pickled cabbage - zingy, vinegar laced shredded autumn vegetables are a perfect accompaniment to the spicier dishes
Guzhou noodle soup with crispy pork - a generous pie of nuggets of deep fried pork, soy beans and coriander perched atop a rich chilli broth with hand pulled noodles
Seabass in flavoursome soup - a creamy thin white sauce with poached fish and glass noodles (slightly weaker than other dishes)
South-western style spicy chicken fried rice - stand out fried rice with heat and depth
Double cooked pork belly slices - the slices had a crispy US bacon style consistency rare in this dish which was slightly undermined by an average sauce / veg
Spicy lamb chops - absolutely delicious tender flavourful lamb chops under a pile of schezuan pepper, fried chillies and crispy shallots. Moreish and punchy this was the standout dish.
They also have an, usually hidden, lunch dumpling menu (all steamed or grilled - no buns / deep fried) which is well worth a look.
