Before I start talking about the restaurant itself I’d first like to talk about how eco-friendly they are. They reduced using plastic by 80%, reduced using alliumun by 95% and stopped using foil altogether. China Garden were one of the speakers during GiveKuwait event and have a video that goes through details of how they started. You can see the video here.
I began with trying Orange Chicken, that’s actually its name. They’re chicken pieces in a sweet and spicy combination with squeezed orange juice. The taste was completely unique, you taste a lot of orange in the chicken. I might try a combination of noodles and orange chicken next time. It also had chilli pepper and ginger on it.
Not all restaurants cook duck the way it’s supposed to be cooked and fortunately China Garden got it right. The Peking Duck is basically boneless strips of duck combined with different traditional spices and braised to a crisp. The duck is served with pancakes and shredded spring onions, cucumber and hoisen sauce. A recommendation for duck lovers.
I haven’t seen shrimp that looked like this before, guess I never tried Chinese shrimp. Walnut Shrimp is with candied walnuts blended in mayonnaise and honey. They taste pretty good but some are big. I would recommend trying them with race. Something like garlic rice and maybe an extra sauce on the side.
These fried Nutella Wontons were a delight after my hands tired out using chopsticks. They also have Cheesecake Spring Rolls stuffed with cream cheese and raspberry jam. Both the desserts China Garden came up with and I do recommend them both.
We tried a big variety of noodles and rice to go with the main dishes like Yangzhou Rice, Vegetable Fried Rice, Garlic Rice, Vegetable Noodles and Singapore Noodles (images in gallery). The overall experience was good, was glad to see even their menu was from recycled material. They’re currently only open for delivery (#25720010 – 25720070)
