What language do Chinese cats use? Catonese.
Yeah, yeah, that one didn’t have us rolling in the aisle clutching our aching ribs either but today’s Big Deal will certainly put a smile on the face of anyone who likes Chinese food.
Meal for 2
The deal is for two people to each tuck into a main course from the a la carte menu at the Four Seasons restaurant on Cambridge Street in Glasgow.
Conveniently close to Glasgow’s Theatreland, the cosy restaurant would be ideal for a pre-theatre bite but the Big Deal could also be used for a lunch with friends or an evening meal with family.
As well as a glass of house wine, each diner can choose a side dish such as the salt ‘n chilli chips, rice chow mein or bean sprouts.
The deal runs Monday to Friday and includes any chicken, beef, pork or vegetarian main course. The offer excludes sea bass and aromatic duck and there is a £3 supplement per dish on other seafood, duck or hotpot dishes.
The a la carte menu at the Four Seasons is extensive. Chicken fans can enjoy dishes like the honey chilli chicken or the ho bo gai which is a chicken fillet cooked with aubergines and Chinese vegetables in an oyster sauce.
The crispy shredded chilli beef is always popular as are the fiery Szechuan pork chops and the beef flank in noodle soup.
Daring diners might care to try the dishes which make the Four Seasons popular with the local Chinese community. Think along the lines of the braised pig trotters in noodle soup or the Macau dish of baked chop with a Portuguese sauce.
Not that you need to walk on the culinary wild side to enjoy the Four Seasons. At the time of writing, over seventy 5pm diners have given the restaurant a tasty combined score of 4.2/5.
