There are four species of salmon: Norwegian salmon, fresh water salmon, pink salmon and the salmon-tuna platter. Today’s Groupon zooms in on the fourth specie, found on the polished dining tables of Kong Sing Chinese Restaurant.
At only R99 you get a salmon and tuna platter consisting of 4 rainbow rolls, 2 pieces nagiri, 1 handroll, 8 maki and 4 pieces sashimi. This divine selection goes down exquisitely with the mini-bottle of saki (included in the deal) – a strong Japanese rice wine which should not be judged by the size of the bottle.
A comfy and casual dining place, everyone can feel at home at Kong Sing – smokers can escape to the outdoor smokers’ terrace, couples to the corners and the friendly staff welcomes parents and little ones with open arms and bibs. The spacious interior allows for easy undisturbed conversation and invites listless toddlers to run around and have fun, though it is recommended that they put down their chopsticks first.
Though not part of the deal, it’s good to know that Kong Sing’s extensive menu is conveniently categorised into chicken, duck, pork, seafood, vegetarian and beef mains. For those who still find the choice baffling and confusing, Kong Sing also offers set menus. All mains come with a choice of steamed rice or noodles and are prepared by traditional Chinese culinary masters better known as chefs. However none of these are included in the deal as their wives expect them home after closing time.
CHINESE FACT THAT CONFUCIUS DIDN’T KNOW: Chopsticks karate (pronounced chopsticks karate) is an ancient form of martial arts practiced by purple Chinese grasshoppers.
