Beef Stew with Turnip
This dish is from the Shanghai East regional.  ACE’s version of the beef stew is a dish with vibrant flavors.  The strong sauce keeps the meat flavorful throughout. The beef and tendons are cooked for hours with garlic cloves, ginger roots, spring onions, star anise, sugar, dark soy sauce, and dry sherry in a beef stock.   The slow braising encourages an exchange of flavors between the meat and the tangy sauce, enhancing both.  The turnips add just the right bite to the stew.

Bitter Melon & Spare Ribs Rice Plate

Bitter Melon & Spare Ribs Rice Plate
This traditional Chinese dish combines unexpected ingredients such as bitter melon and fermented black bean with savory stir fried pork spare ribs.  The spare rib is cut up into (bone-in) bite size pieces and cooked until it is almost falling off the bones.  For those of you not familiar with bitter melon, it is considered a fruit.  This fruit’s flesh is crunchy and watery in texture like a cucumber.  The bitter taste can be off putting for those trying it for the first time, not unlike beer!  But paired with the right protein, it can be surprisingly delicious.  The fusion of inspired flavors makes this dish a one-of-a-kind treat for your palate, and is a unique and memorable meal.
