Tai Ping Koon information
'Soy sauce Western' (a mix of Western and Chinese flavours) is believed to have been invented in the kitchen of the first Tai Ping Koon, founded in 1860 in Guangzhou. Today tasty classics such as smoked pomfret and roast pigeon are still served in neat, if a little worn, surrounds by the waiters who have been around for decades. The restaurant is also famous for its soufflé, which is sized like a hen and comes in a casserole.
