Our mini China town in Kisumu that prepares authentic chinese cuisine for us.
I had never really tried Chinese food in Kisumu before. I was always a little bit sceptical about the quality and the authenticity of their food.This Chinese restaurant is located in Alimran plaza.It’s practically in Kisumu’ s central business district and it’s not easy to miss it.This plaza has so many stores and shops and if you’re here on business this is one of the locations to stop by for pleasure. I had gone here to pay a visit to the Avenue Healthcare facility that is located right opposite it.Once I was done with my doctors appointment I was like this restaurant is here and I’m also here so why not.My inner foodie of course seconded my opinion and at that moment all the scepticism I had evaporated. They have 3 sitting sections. The first one is outside and it’s sort of open.It doesn’t really offer any privacy if that’s what you’re going for.It is also a little bit noisy so if you want a calm dining experience maybe you can choose to sit elsewhere .Inside, there is an outside section and inside section that’s separated by a spring door.I’m such a huge fan of Chinese costume shows and immediately I entered that’s the vibe this place gave me.There were several familiar Chinese ornaments hanging all around and it gave me a whole mini China town feeling.I visited this place during the pandemic period so there were not really many people around…and yay for me! Their menu serves some really authentic Chinese food and once I saw hotpot and tofu I couldn’t keep calm.We decided to each have their prawn crackers for starters and each plate was 400/= shillings. For main meals I had their Cantose Sweet and sour pork with green pepper and it was also served with some pineapple. It was 700 shillings for a plate. I really wanted to try their hotpot but I felt like my expectations of hotpot from alot pictures I had seen were too high so I preferred to get it at a well renowned place.Their menu really was extensive and It took me quite a minute just to pick something. They have a bar and they also had really good music going on. Although I was really hoping they’d play some Chinese music,they were playing old school tunes which we also just danced to.If you’re in Kisumu and you’re looking for a Chinese restaurant I’d recommend this place.The service was also good but the food took quite a while to come which was a little disappointing. They prepare food by the order so it was a little understandable.
