The restaurant’s executive chef is a Chinese native, Chef Peter Yeung, who gives each dish his own take while maintaining the authentic flavors and Cantonese cooking principles. What we find interesting is that he puts into consideration the non-native palate, those who are not used to the clear and light flavors of Cantonese cuisine.
While Chef Peter holds to the authenticity of his concoctions, he also believes that adjusting the taste is necessary for the first-timer or non-native diner to better appreciate Chinese cuisine.

For instance, the restaurant best-seller Mongolian Pork Spareribs with Honey, a traditional dish from Hong Kong, is typically made only with hoisin sauce, bean sauce, and some herbs. At Xin Tian Di, Chef Peter has learned to add some tomato sauce to give it a sweeter taste, which many locals in the Philippines are sure to love.

Another best seller, the Prawn Salad, is also a classic favorite in Hong Kong. In Chef Peter’s style, the prawns are battered and deep-fried in soya oil. The crispy fried prawns are then coated with mango yogurt dressing and sprinkled with black sesame seeds, and then served with fruit salad. They can be served either hot or cold.
