Must try dishes at Edinburgh Chinese restaurants
With so many dishes to choose from, deciding on what to go for at Edinburgh’s Chinese restaurants can be a struggle. But you can never go wrong with classics like chow mein, sweet and sour pork and kung po chicken. Some other must-try dishes include Peking duck – a famous dish from Beijing that originated in the imperial area, consisting of duck that has been roasted in a closed or hung oven and flavoured with cucumber, spring onion and a sweet bean sauce, typically served with pancakes, and orange chicken, a traditional Hunan dish of chopped, battered or fried pieces of chicken smothered in a sweet chilli sauce flavoured with orange. If you’re vegetarian, don’t worry – Chinese restaurants in Edinburgh typically offer an abundance of meat-free options, with bean curd featuring heavily on menus. Perhaps try some mapu tofu – a Sezchuan-style dish with a spicy, tongue-tingling sauce. With something to suit all tastes, a trip to one of Edinburgh’s Chinese restaurants is the perfect choice for when dining as a group.
