San Xi Lou launches sister restaurant
Chinese dining destination San Xi Lou is celebrating its 10th anniversary with the opening of a sister branch in Times Square, Causeway Bay.
Named and styled after Emperor Qianlong’s Imperial Study called San Xi Tang (“Hall of Three Rarities”), San Xi Lou has become an institution since opening at Coda Plaza in 2008. “San” also means the number three in Chinese, symbolising the restaurant’s three culinary experiences: Cantonese and Sichuan cuisine, and dim sum.
Taking the concept to Times Square’s 11/F Food Forum, the sister restaurant adds a contemporary twist with modern furnishings and Chinese elements such as birdcage lighting.
To celebrate its opening, the restaurant introduces exclusive specialties, and as well as the brand’s Sichuan-style spicy broth, two hot-pot broths make their debut, served in handmade copper communal pots.
Its dim sum menu features more than 60 options.
San Xi Lou Times Square, which was founded by Top Standard Corporation, has three intimate VIP rooms with pendant lights over the dining tables. The rooms can be combined to accommodate up to nine tables for 108 seats.
