Shanghai Garden Restaurant, Den Haag

A few of the girls decided to meet up last weekend in Netherland to celebrate DH Almere´s belated birthday.  From a simple gathering plan, it ended up being a few days back to back program consisting of restaurant visits, medieval town sighseeing and even manage to meet up with DH Southlake whom was on medical leave, for a yummy dinner.  DH Southlake whom dines pretty frequently knows every nook and corner when it comes to good eatery and Shanghai Garden Restaurant is one which she highly recommend.  But be prepared, she warned as Sichuanese cuisine are known for their fiery flavour.  We came ready and were utterly not dissapointed.

I can´t read chinese so the ordering was done by those who can.  It is nice to sit back and enjoy what comes out from the kitchen.  So with that being said,  I hope my photo here would do the talking of how good, authentic it really is ...

Chicken appetiser (amazing!), Mapo Tofu (superbly executed!), Fish in Spicy Peanut Gravy (Love the sauce but could suspected Pengasius fish did not do justice to it), Dan Dan Noodle (authenticically good!), Fried Kai Lan (full of wok hei and possibly imported from Hongkong and not locally grown in Netherland), and lastly, some carbo of Fried Kuey Teow with Beef which I had to skip.

Overall it was fantastically executed, no question on where their kitchen staffs are from.  I would like to be back if given a chance and hopefully, this restaurant stand the test of time.
