#SusanEats: Taste of China

Taste of China, a modest Indo-Chinese restaurant, is nestled in an apartment complex at the end of Raphta Road, which overlooks an inviting pool.

Though Indo-Chinese cuisine bears little resemblance to traditional Chinese cooking, the distinct aromas and flavours of common ingredients used by the Chinese are infused into every dish and adapted to a richer Indian palette.

With sounds and melodies from Asia in the background, diners enjoy flavourful meals in a relaxed environment.

Taste of China’s staff are attentive and very knowledgeable about their menu and specials that are not featured on the menu.  So, don’t be afraid to ask someone for suggestions – you may just be pleasantly surprised.

Capital Lifestyle favourites were the fresh pineapple and mint juice and the honey-glazed pork ribs.  Both are definitely a must-try, and I mean it!

The pineapple and mint juice was a refreshing combination that was absolutely sensational – it makes your mouth tickle.

The aromas of the honey-glazed pork ribs could be recognized immediately when the kitchen door was opened.  Beautifully coloured and saturated with flavours of ginger, soya sauce and honey; these juicy ribs will certainly be one of your favourites and worthy to be featured in any China Town restaurant in the World.

Vegetable fried rice was a bit bland for my personal tastes, however together with the sauces from other dishes it was just fine.

Lemon prawns: a refreshing, zesty and spicy approach to prawns.


China Town in Kenya

I’ve often wondered why a China Town hasn’t been established in Kenya.  With so many Chinese-inspired fusion restaurants sprouting up all over, it’s clear that Kenyans have certainly taken to Chinese flavours like rice has to soya sauce.

Zen Gardens is trying their luck at bringing the China Town experience to Kenya.  From September 17th to 18th 2011, a China Town Market with all of your Cantonese, Peking-style and Schezwan favourites!
