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.
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.

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!
