More effective than sitting in front of a Chinese Money Cat and asking it to magically transport you to the land of rice and Oolong tea, is to click on one button and have this Groupon emailed to you. Boasting an authentic Chinese restaurant feel with waiters who do more than just speak the language, the Lai Jing Chinese Restaurant is a haven of little Chinatown compacted into an intimate space. With a cool ambience, staff who know how to make you feel appreciated and chefs who know exactly how to blend flavours into magical taste sensations, you’re in for a delicious Chinese cuisine experience.
Settled at your table with your partner of choice, your dining experience begins with a comforting chicken sweet corn soup, good enough to make you feign illness every day for the rest of your life. Next in line is a chopstick challenge in the beef chop-suey dish cooked to lip-licking lengths. Along with the delicious aromas of the Chinese-style sweet and sour pork and the steamed jasmine rice, yours and your partner’s tummies are guaranteed to be tickled a variety of happy shades. Sipping on your Oolong tea will just add that Chinese New Year firecracker to the top of your cake. In fact, by the end of your meal, you’ll be tempted to ship over a Chinese mother to keep in your cupboard for special occasions.
It is, however, advised that when making your decision for who would join you, you choose the friend that rarely eats when you go out, ensuring that most of the meal falls into your belly. Some may call this greed, but others know this is just a grand tactic.
Meat Fact: In a national museum in Russia, a prehistoric Siberia scene depicts cavemen cooking meat on solid gold. The blurb points out that this was in fact, the first place where gold was found and it was used for ordinary kitchen utensils in their daily lives.
