Shanghai fine dining
|Tea smoked duck|
While far from perfect, the general quality of Cantonese cuisine in London has made great improvement in the last few years, especially the dim sum. So when I pay a visit to Hong Kong, I often try to experience other Chinese regional cooking, which are either rare or none exists in London. Jardin de Jade ticks all the right boxes for me, a Michelin starred Shanghai restaurant in Hong Kong, it has a fairly extended menu, focusing on classic cooking using top ingredients.
The house special braised pork was indeed special, the pork like butter with a very lovely melting sweet sensation. Bamboo shoots with tofu was a solid casserole dish with a nice depth of powerful from the gravy, which the tofu absorbed all the lovely . I got nothing but love for the tea smoked duck, something taste-wise was exceptional, the aromatic and floral of the tea blended into the duck magically, while the meat contained a great level of smoky and robust taste, it was like a single malt whisky in meat form, but without the alcohol!
