Everything that you’ve heard about Shenzhen’s manic energy and moneyed pace is mirrored in the city’s dining landscape. Venues open and shut in rapid succession, especially in the Lowu area, and towering hotels, malls, and developments provide yet more sleek dining options. Classical European restaurants may be a dime a dozen but the truly authentic are few and far between, especially those serving top notch Western classics that are prepared at your table. Opened in February 2010, Belle-Vue has been known as the top European restaurant within PRD region with his consistent efforts, and has been ranked as “The Best Business Restaurant 2010” by HOTELS China Magazine. Lavish settings bring along an equally extravagant set of menus. Forget your one day trips across to Hong Kong and Macau, because now real classical western cuisine can be found on mainland China, right here at the Belle-Vue in Shenzhen. Belle-Vue brings together both good tastes and legitimacy to the table, with the Austrian-born chef-de-cuisine Christoph Trocker in charge of the kitchen, having a myriad of international experience, most recently with the Jumeirah Group of hotels.
Apart from being able to provide impressive city views of Shenzhen while you indulge into your meal, the key to the success of Belle-Vue is the ability to present a truly five-star quality food during live cooking in front of the dinars- which indeed is a huge challenge for any chef and one that is accomplished well by chef Trocker and his team of experts. The menu is decidingley modest, filled with comfort foods that are touched with haute finishings, including French foie gras, pan-fried, rhubarb compote; the Boston lobster bisque, or the Sea bass, pan-fried, fava bean, truffle mash with demi-glace. Save plenty of room for dessert, whether it’s the Bombe Alaska (With raspberry, rose & lychee) or the grand marnier soufflé glace (The orange is so good that you could effectively drown yourself in the dish!).
Set Menu starts at: 480 RMB for a 3-course meal*, 550-RMB for a 4 course meal*

The NAVJOT-SINGH.COM web blog is separate to this web site....Click blog, which may

If you are an investor or a trend watcher then you may find this website useful as investing has a lot to do with personal observations and finding the ideal trend or next big thing. The average human on the street frequently knows far more about the state of the economy than politicians, university professors, subject matter experts, and financial analysts who seldom travel, or if they do so, only from one hotel to another hotel! The pulse and vibrancy of an economy is nowhere more visible than on a country's streets.
