A surprisingly chic Chinese restaurant, with its own catwalk for some strange reason.
If you're looking for a calm venue, free from the hustle and bustle of most Chinese eateries, then Di Wei definitely fits the bill (for now).
A spicy, Szechuan-influenced tofu starter that somehow tasted freshly prepared.
The menu sticks to tried-&-tested recipes, including chilled pork trotters with scallop fringes. Superbly tender meat, with a strong boost of flavor from the savory scallops.
Roasted pork belly (siu yoke). OK, but unremarkable; not as succulent as expected.
Roast duckling, to wrap up our pre-dinner snack. Juicy but bony. Addictive, nevertheless.
Bitter Pu'Er tea.
