Celebrating the punchy spices and bold flavours of dishes from Sichuan, Shaanxi, Liaoning and Beijing, Silk Road offers an array of dishes from these regions along the historic trade route. Popular dishes include handmade noodles as well as a selection of modern Chinese creations such as deep-fried prawns with wasabi and crispy potato, and chempedak crème brûlée with berries. Highlights include the chilled chicken in spicy bean sauce, which features tender cuts of chicken covered in zesty Sichuan-style sauce and topped with peanuts for an added crunch. Its elegant interior is modern and poised, and references the provenance of its dishes—a bamboo-lined entryway creates a graceful introduction, while warm wood and earthy tones add to its tranquil appeal. Most dishes are available in generous sharing portions, served by an attentive crew.
• Try the seasonal variations of the handmade knife-shaved noodles. On our visit, it was paired with braised pork belly and hand-cut into thick ribbons; the noodles were chewy and flavourful, with each strand evenly coated in gravy.
• For a cosy family meal, opt for one of the restaurant’s private dining rooms, which can seat up to 15 diners around a round table.
