京兆尹 aka King Join
This is a chinese restaurant serving emperor's food. It's really an honour to be able to dine in this restaurant. Luckily we found it..so happy!
It was raining very heavily and we had to take a taxi from Sun Yat Sen Memorial Station to King Join Restaurant. It was quite near though.
We were early so not many people, in fact, there was only 1 table occupied. We got a window seat and immediately ordered tea as i was freezing! Yummy! even the tea tasted good. The tea leaves were fragrant and the pot was placed atop of a teapot warmer with a tea light candle to keep the tea warm. The names of the dishes here are very unique especially the dim sums..we had 果仁奶酪, 驢打滾, 豌豆黃, 愛窩窩..well..pictures are below!hehe..
We shared a set menu inclusive of a 紫米饭 with pine nuts，金瓜汤，mini plate of chicken and another plate of mixed vegetables,3 dim sums and 果仁奶酪(chinese yogurt). After we had finished, we ordered another 3 kinds of dim sum and 八宝紫米甜品。We did not made a wrong choice as all the foods were very tasty. The dim sums are sweets but not too sweet especially the glutinous rice one was marvellous! I guess they were all good for our health as their food are all suited for the emperors and empresses!
It was indeed an honour to be able to dine in this special restaurant. Hope to come back again to try more of their dishes!
