Pearl Bayview Chinese Cuisine
Restaurateurs Jeffrey Mak and Kim Fung Mak have won acclaim for Pearl Harbourfront Restaurant, the sleekly modern eatery that Dine.TO proclaimed a "multi-sensual treat" when naming it the city's Best Chinese restaurant in 2011. Now, the pair's new restaurant, Pearl Bayview Chinese Cuisine, prepares a similar feast for the senses. Chef Kwok Foon Mak fashions dim sum such as deep-fried stuffed crab claws, steamed dumplings nested in baskets, or sticky rice delicately wrapped in lotus leaves. Seafood simmers in Szechuan-style hot 'n' sour soup, and black pepper-honey sauce glazes fried beef short ribs. Globe lighting, white tablecloths, and a wine rack that suspends bottles horizontally in midair give the restaurant a subdued, modern ambience.
