From wheatgrass to wolfberries, the ingredients in Imperial Herbal’s menu are health-oriented. The preparation of some dishes also takes on a healthy twist, such as the popular Fluffy Egg White (no sign of high-cholesterol yolks), which is scrambled in a little oil and water and served on a crispy basket with smoe dried scallop. In addition, all soups are double-boiled to retain nutritional properties.
With panoramic views of the waterfront, the restaurant is spacious with plenty of tables and even some colourful cushioned chairs adding to the brightness. It’s hard to miss the "medical hall" in the dining room, where a handsome wooden Chinese medicine cabinet showcases dozens of small drawers likely filled with enchanting medicinal ingredients. So for a culinary and possibly a medical adventure, visit Imperial Herbal Restaurant, where delicious and healthy Chinese food really exist. (Mar 2012)
