New Flavors, Traditional Elegance
There are some delightful scents wafting through the Garden of Flowing Fragrance these days, and they’re coming from the tea shop. A new chef, Henry Ng (known for his former restaurant, Chuen Hing) has given the menu a gourmet makeover, with delicious offerings that include aromatic garlic shrimp spring rolls, Cantonese short rib soup with rice noodles, savory barbecue chicken with satay sauce, wok-fried white fish, chicken chow mein, and ginger green beans. In addition to the upgraded cuisine, the teahouse itself, known as the Hall of the Jade Camellia, has acquired some new Ming-style furniture that adds a touch of traditional elegance to the dining experience. The furnishings were made possible by a gift from Xiang Li and Lei Pei. Stop by the Chinese Garden on your next visit and enjoy a memorable meal in an incomparable setting.
