Deng G

Wan Chai, one of Hong Kong’s oldest neighbourhoods, has become a trendy dining enclave, accelerated by redevelopment and self-reinvention of areas on its southern flank. One bright dining spot has been Deng G, a trendy Sichuan restaurant featuring a contemporary Bai Jiu (Chinese liquor) Bar, which serves a full complement of beers, wines, cocktails and yes, interesting Chinese liquor cocktail concoctions. More than its libations, Deng G’s has been garnering rave reviews from foodies for its authentic Sichuan dishes – quality ingredients of fish, meat and vegetables prepared in sweat-inducing spicy and zesty sauces and soup bases.

Deng G is popular at lunchtime for its various set lunch options, including a quick-and-hearty set for only $82 that includes one entrée selection and noodles or rice. Its dinner menu, created and meticulously overseen by its Sichuan-based chef and restaurateur Mr Deng, features many Sichuan favourites. The highly flavourful dishes we tried included Mala Beef Jerky ($88). Okra with Ginger Sauce ($58) which is cool and refreshing, the signature Braised Sliced Mandarin Fish in Red Chili Soup ($398) which is classically prepared, Steamed Fish Head with Chopped Pepper ($228), Pork Dumplings, Chengdu Style ($52 for 4 pieces), and for dessert a light but delicious Fermented Glutinous Rice in Ice Powder ($28).

If you are partial to Sichuan spicy food, as we are, Deng G is a more than worthy choice. Book early.
