Mr Chow Miami: Chinese Cuisine With A Twist
About Mr. Chow
Here is another one of my favourite places to eat in the South Beach area of Miami. Mr. Chow is located in the trendy W South Beach Hotel and is owned by the famous restauranteur Michael Chow, who also owns restaurants in New York, London, Beverley Hills, Las Vegas, Malibu and Mexico City. The restaurant is an experience in itself, the dining room displays a unique 123 foot Gold-leaf and Swarovski crystal chandelier designed by Michael Chow. There is both indoor and outdoor seating and a reservation is a must. One of my favourite parts of the evening was the noodle making demonstration, which I believe is performed nightly, some serious skill there! The food is an interesting twist on traditional Chinese and contemporary dishes. Make sure you pick out your best dress for this experience! Keep your eyes peeled for some famous faces, I ended up sitting next to a very well known football player.
My Favourite Dishes
The dishes are great for sharing, so I sampled a range of their creations with some recommendations of the most popular dishes from the waiter. Here are my favourites: Green Prawns, Four Colour Cauliflower, Glazed prawns with walnuts, Mr Chow Noodles, Lily Bulb with Mountain Yam and the Crispy Beef. The service was professional and food arrived in a timely fashion, just be prepared for the bill, it's not cheap!
So, if you are in the South Beach area and want a unique dining experience with some quirky takes on some traditional Chinese food go check out Mr. Chow.
