Once Business Tycoon, Now Restaurant Tyro
Beiping, a veteran entrepreneur engaged in clothing designing for more than one decade, used to boast over 200 clothing store chains in China at the peak. In 2016 he devoted himself to restaurants and established Oriental House. Though considering himself as a “green hand”, he has entertained unique tastes and pursued authentic flavors of Taizhou Cuisine. During all these years he has been thinking about the development of Oriental House.

Authentic flavor of Taizhou Cuisine
Beiping made a forthright comment that Zhangyong has formed his own views of Taizhou Cuisine, while he has not. He added: “But I have formed my own ideas and culinary perceptions, that is, cooking the freshest food with the most suitable methods. I have been shaped by Western Food in making new dishes, but of course, one common character of XINRONGJI and Oriental House is that we all pursue the authentic flavor of Taizhou Cuisine”.
Besides Boiled Lizard Fish, Oriental House also recommended several traditional dishes: Braised Sea Anemones with Sweet Potato Noodles, Sauteed Rice Cakes with Pomfret, Taizhou Fried Rice Noodles, Crispy Pork Intestine etc. Notably, the dish Sauteed Rice Cakes with Pomfret is billed as a classic dish in Taizhou, where hand-made rice cakes appear in every festival including ancestor worship.
Sauteed Rice Cakes with PomfretPork Ears with Dried Small Shrimps
Sauteed Rice Cakes with Pomfret use dumpling-shaped handmade rice cakes in which soup has been thoroughly mixed. Diners could order this dish in the regular menu for less than two hundred CNY per person.
Pork Ears with Dried Small Shrimps is a special dish in Oriental House. Dice the marinated pork ears after they cool off. Deep-fried small shrimps with green onion，add diced kelp and pork ears and stir with olive oil. One bite you can taste crispy pork ears and sea shrimps in the mouth. It is really an exquisite appetizer to enjoy with wine.
Steamed Ribbon Fish with 5j Ham is another recommended dish. Fry the rice in the iron pan till it is stuck in the bottom, put diced 5j hams and boneless ribbon fish on the top, then braise them in open fires. For ingredients, stew preserved vegetables and pork chops as well as pork skin, then fry them with minced meat. Mix all together you will savor the flavor every mouthful.

Oriental House is also fastidious about rice- China Northeast Rice steamed only by mineral water. And no more than half an hour when finally offered to guests.

Fond of authentic food, last year I visited Taizhou to savor local delicacies where I was surprised by XINRONGJI with its authentically flavoured dishes which, I believe, will amaze the world as well. Oriental House is distinctive contrast to others restaurants. Small restaurants has its own way to survive. Combining his own understanding of food with traveling experiences in other countries, Beiping offers what both diners and chefs love.
Two restaurants of Oriental House are currently located in Jing An Kerry Center and Grand Gateway in Xuhui District respectively. The third store just landed this May in 96 Square, Pudong District. Beiping is very optimistic about this new restaurant in Pudong hoping that it will attract neighboring diners.
