Pearl Dining House《明珠小館》
A rustic gourmet from Southern & Northern China opened its door recent at The One Shopping Mall in Tsim Sha Tsui Hong Kong marks the first Chinese Dining Establishment from  JC Group. The Head Chef from this new friendly and casual dine out Alex Sit told mylifestylenews how he manages to maintain the traditional Chinese cooking by adding on a little modern twist to his food......

My family are from Chiu Chow, which is part of the Canton province and my style of cooking were pretty much in Cantonese style until I was exposed more to other provinces of China by learning a different way of cooking by using different ingredients provided.

As you know, Chinese food are vast in terms of selection and the way we cook. There are hundreds of style which was separated from various provinces from China that influences their daily lifestyle of living in the past. The tradition that was well kept and passed on to this very day with numerous changes to suit the present cravings.

In Pearl Dining House, our concept is to try to bring back some good old memories with some of the long lost recipe by adding a little bit of a modern twist into our food presentation and taste.

The restaurant focuses on authentic and home-made dishes from Huaiyang, Shanghai, Beijing, Inner Mongolia and Xinjiang, covering dining concepts, flavors and traditions from the Southern and Northern China, as well as other peripheral provinces in China.

Basically, our menu four categories, Huaiyang Delights, Noodles from the South and North, Shanghainese Home-style Cuisine, Nutritious Soup. Most of the food from that province are very much home cooking style where the ladies in the house managed the kitchen and the men were at the field work. 

We try to bring back those signature dishes from the past in those provinces like homemade noodles, local stir-fried, Chinese petit-fours by adding a little surprises in our very way.

The dining room sets a convivial tone with traditional Chinese décor. A wide vault fanned by a pair of rhyming couplets lead diners to the room, inside a wooden ceiling, dangling lanterns and Chinese style windows commonly seen in ancient garden and chamber grace the venue.
