Naturally, Hong Kong’s Chinese restaurant scene is a busy one, making the competition stuff and standing out from the crowd a challenge. China Kitchen is one such place that has managed to distinguish itself, with a superb location down Kam Ping Street right next to North Point station and a kitchen that specialises in Beijing, Sichuan and Shanghai-style cuisine. Spice and slow-cooked delicacies, beautifully presented and packed with flavours both bold and delicate are the order of the day.
The restaurant is not big but the food is nice with a wide range variety of food to choose from. Spicy lovers should like this shop.
China Kitchen is aptly named, demonstrating an in-depth knowledge of Chinese regional cuisines with ambassadorial aplomb, whether you want to go Beijing, Sichuan, or Shanghai with your meal. Or all of the above! Conveniently located next to North Point station along Kam Ping Street, China Kitchen’s urban location doesn’t mean it takes any chances with the ingredients that go into its dishes – the restaurant takes daily delivery from farms close by in mainland China, making for the freshest food possible.
Typical dishes on offer at China Kitchen include dumplings, slow-cooked whole fish steeped in soup and beef noodles, beef rolls wrapped in crispy fried dough drawn from Beijing street food culture, salt-marinated chicken with bak choi, handmade noodle dishes (made fresh every day on site), and all sorts of soups and broth-based dishes that give the Japanese a run for their umami. This North Point restaurant is a must-visit for any Hong Kong foodie looking for authentic regional Chinese cuisine.
