I love trying new food and new restaurants. My other passions are Origami and Pokémon

Located near Crave, Kong's Kitchen is a great place for lovers of Sichuan-style Chinese dishes. Among the dishes that can be ordered is their Mini Spicy Hotpot, which allows you to pick a minimum of four ingredients. Sesame oil and chilli powder are provided as dipping sauces.

One of the chef's special, the style of their Deep-fried Meat and Vegetable is a bit akin to a dry version of the Fragrant Hotpot from Master Jin Taste of China. The pieces of meat were cooked just right, with the spices giving them a spicy taste. The vegetables acted as a foil to the spiciness of the meat, with the potatoes notably done liked potato chips to add a bit of crunch.

The restaurant offers various types of Chinese sausage that are served to you warm. Out of the varieties we picked, the Guandong Sausage had a delectable slightly sweet flavour while the Sichuan Flavour Sausage packed an intense spicy punch. We enjoyed the Guandong Sausage but found the Sichuan Flavour Sausage too spicy. If you like you can order two types of sausages as a half-and-half serving.

Despite what its name suggests, the Fish-flavour Eggplant with Pork Mince is not the mild dish offered by other restaurants. It was more similar to that of a spicy Sichuan dish. The eggplant still had a bite to them and the pork mince gave the dish a meaty texture. While it looked really spicy, the degree of spiciness was surprisingly mild.

In addition to their main menu, the restaurant also offers a selection of dishes that are available during lunchtime. The décor of the restaurant is that of a small café with the tables placed close to each other.
