Ten Ten Hunan Bistro 十食湘, Delish Food With Outstanding Service, At Reel Mall – Shanghai, China

Ten Ten Hunan Bistro 十食湘 located at Reel Mall with nearest subway station, Jingan Shi, serving Hunan cuisine, is one of my highly recommended restaurant for Shanghai. They did well for every aspect, from the quality to standard to most appreciated was service. I was in awe after dinning there.

 

The interior of the restaurant was not only modern but polished and sleek. If you do not look beyond the menu, one might worry that it is an expensive and poshed restaurant.

There are quite some private rooms. In addition, there are some tables that are with some partition giving diners more privacy.

 

Our only appetiser was a Cold Dish, Pumpkin With Lily Bulbs 百合南瓜 (RMB 25). It was as simply as equal size strip of pumpkin in its natural flavour with lily bulb.

Next is the Fried Spare Ribs With Cumin & Chillies 神仙孜然肋排 (RMB 128 for 4) which is a signature item at the Ten Ten Hunan Bistro. Though the colour may not look appetising, once you bite into the meat and especially when eaten together with the cumin, you will savour the fragrance from the tender meat.

Ten Ten Hunan Bistro 十食湘, Delish Food With Outstanding Service, At Reel Mall - Steamed Fish Head With Red Minced Peppers served with fish noodles 霸王鱼头 (RMB 118)

 

Followed by, also another signature item at the restaurant is the Steamed Fish Head With Red Minced Peppers served with fish noodles 霸王鱼头 (RMB 118). Be warned, do not put into too big a piece into your mouth at the first attempt. Each mouth should be relatively small as the spiciness of the chilli only emit when you swallow the fish. I was impressive by the standard as the fish showed no sign of over-cooked.

The Fried Chicken with Red Chillies 辣子鸡 (RMB 68) may look intimadating but it wasn’t at all. It wasn’t as spicy as it looked. Deep fried chicken pieces was peppered with chilli and the most important ingredient peppercorn to provide a numb and spicy flavour.

 

Ten Ten Hunan Bistro 十食湘, Delish Food With Outstanding Service, At Reel Mall - Sauteed Water Spinach with Preserved Bean Curd 腐乳空心菜 (RMB 48)

 

Sauteed Water Spinach with Preserved Bean Curd 腐乳空心菜 (RMB 48) is what we known as Kang Kong. Instead of cooking it with Belachan, at China, this vegetable is commonly fried with preserved bean curd. As I like this ferment bean curd, I enjoyed it.

 

 

NAHMJ Verdict

 

Overall, all the dishes we ordered at Ten Ten Hunan Bistro was delish and we love their service too. At every interval, the assigned service crew, always the same one, will keep coming back to check on our needs. I surely highly recommend them to all.
