Xiao Zhan is a Taiwanese restaurant run by Henry Lau, the former member of Super Junior-M. Henry is currently pursuing his music career as a solo artist, releasing numerous chart-topping singles and producing music for other artists, TV dramas and movie OSTs. On May 4, 2018, he opened the first branch of Xiao Zhan in Apgujeong, Seoul.
The restaurant is decorated with fancy Chinese lanterns and decorations. It is quiet and spacious, unlike other restaurants which are usually congested; these made Xiao Zhan appealing to me. It offers cozy and warm setting, creating a romantic atmosphere. When you enter the restaurant, you will immediately feel relaxed because of the dim candle-light lighting.
The restaurant serves a variety of Taiwanese food including xiao long bao (soup dumplings), lu rou fan (braised pork rice) and Taiwanese popcorn chicken. Their signature menus are Xiao Zhan Beef Noodles, Classic Braised Pork on Rice, Pork Cutlet on Rice, Spicy Mala Chicken and Orange Chicken. Also, you can try special fusion dishes like orange chicken and kung pao chicken (spicy, stir-fried Chinese dish made with cubes of chicken, peanuts, vegetables, and chili peppers).
