Guests can gaze directly into the steamy, glass-enclosed kitchen at this gleaming restaurant. In summer, a massive air conditioner helps create the Arctic conditions necessary to enjoy the house specialty, a meat lover’s soup called sul leung tang. Staff are sweet and attentive—leave any food behind and they’ll ask why—and glossy menu photos illustrating each dish help overcome any language barriers.
