Young Cheng (Lisle Street) | Cantonese
Young Cheng translates to ‘Goat City’, another name for Canton where the restaurant’s cuisine originates. For centuries, Cantonese food has gained its reputation around the world to become perhaps the most well-known Chinese cuisine.
On the menu here, you can find a riot of the most popular Cantonese courses. If you like the rich flavour of a rich Lamb Casserole with Beancurd Sheets, the sweet and sour taste of Stewed Pork, the crunchy and refreshing taste of Stir-fried Prawn with Cashew Nuts, Young Cheng is the right place for a pig-out.
For regular customers, their must-have is Crab or Lobster with Ginger and Spring Onions. After being stir-fried with ginger and spring onions, the intense crab and lobster aroma is softened, and only the freshness of seafood remains.
Before you start tucking in, don’t forget to ask the staff for their free pancakes. Try dipping the crispy pancake in rich seafood sauce. But pancakes aren’t their only cheeky freebie, Young Cheng serve complimentary after-dinner fruit and sweet sago drinks too. Suddenly, everything just tastes even better.
