Meilin Klemann and her mom have been turning heads with the Taiwanese specialties in their restaurant and have a large following of faithful customers. The menu is all about that quintessential Chinese pork bun – the bao. The bun itself is so soft and delicious that it will leave you wanting more by itself. The pork filling will have you thinking about ordering a dozen to take home! It doesn’t stop there, we will have two main courses to choose from.
Starter: 1 pork shoulder o pork belly bao: homemade bun stuffed with stewed pork in soy sauce, star anise, rice wine, ginger and sugar. Topped with fresh cilantro, crushed peanuts and home-made sweet and sour radish pickles.
Choice of 2 main courses:
1. Japanese Beef Curry with carrot, onion, potato, served with rice
2. Mandarin Chicken: organic chicken with a natural orange sauce made with fresh orange juice, served with rice and stir-fried greens.
Dessert of the day
