While we got to experience a special nook at the Empress of China with a dreamy outdoor setup Lotus temple and the metro as a backdrop, we were ready for a night of beautiful food. The carefully crafted menu features a variety of Zongzi selection of food from melt in your mouth Dan Jiao Egg Dumplings, Steamed Crispy Duck Rolls, among others. We loved the starters and the duck roll was a big hit.
