Located at the Dorchester the iconic, art-deco interior is designed to evoke the romanticism of the Thirties. China Tang is said to offer some of the best and most authentic Cantonese food outside of China.
Me and the trench coat took a walk and was seated for lunch.
First there was a basket of assorted Dim Sum, some Har Kau (scrimp dumpling), Siu Mai (pork dumpling), Chiu Chow dumpling, vegetable dumpling and vegetable spring roll.
The tastes were clean and fresh and vegetables crispy. Cooked perfect, but as in most cases this sauce lady would have liked something else that hot-hot chili sauce to dip in. Clear that result is down to the ingredients.
Next was an tomato and egg drop soup. I love tomato soup and I love eggs. But have not tried them combined before and must say I was a bit skeptical, but it was very fresh, light and something I could do at home sometime.
Next dish was Hong Kong classic mixed meat and seafood noodle with greens and oyster sauce. Chicken and pork was amazingly tender and the taste was crisp and healthy. Noodles I would have liked less burnt.
