Evelyn’s Garden – Day 100 Tapas Feast~

Evelyn’s Garden is a new Chinese restaurant opened in Wan Chai on Tonnochy Road. Featuring traditional Peking, Sichuan and Shanghainese cuisines, they serve hand-made dishes in tapas-style. The environment has a unique taste of China, antique furnitures and a wall of panda paintings.

Table Setting

Introducing the special “Day 100 Tapas Feast”, we start with 24 dishes of cold appetizers, including traditional pork terrine, drunken chicken, pork knuckle and cold cut sliced pork with glass noodle. My favourite goes to the signature cold cut chicken made with a thick numbing sesame and peanut sauce, very tender, meaty, and definitely spicy.

Followed by 42 hot dishes, the scrambled egg white is deliberately topped with crab roe; double cooked pork belly is undoubtedly flavorful and succulent; also the sweet and sour garoupa fillet and stir-fried beef with scallion.

There are tiger prawns cooked in three styles. Dry-braised, chili Kung Pao, and the everyone’s favourite style, which is coated with a golden sauce made with salted egg yolk and butter.

The fact that their dishes are all made MSG-free, and probably low in salt, sugar and less oil, we also have some healthy veggie dishes.

Evelyn’s Garden is famous for the various dishes boiled with hot and numbing oil. The base is prepared with a number of herbs and spices, the Chef has also created different tastes for cooking fish, sliced beef, and pork belly, added sweet potato noodle and topped with chopped coriander.

There are also dim sum such as xiao long bao, dumplings, a rarely-seen Chaoyang spinach bun and Beijing style beef rolls. The Chaoyang spinach bun has a texture between steamed bun and dumpling, stuffed with crispy spinach and dried prawns. Whilst the beef rolls are basically sheets of wrap stuffed with beef shank, sweet bean sauce and leek, giving a rich and soft texture.

Some sweet treats to finish. The pumpkin ball is filled with white lotus paste, the egg souffle with banana is very light and fluffy, the black sesame rolls are perfectly smooth and soft. Must-try are their sweet soups including the walnut, black sesame and Sang Ji Sheng, because they are made following the recipe of the traditional dessert place in Sai Wan – Yuen Kee Dessert!
