京花軒位於璀璨瑰麗的永利澳門,以朱紅色牆體配合由意大利Fortuny品牌 打造的琺瑯製馬賽克地板,裝潢設計如同一個華美的珠寶盒。然而京花軒的設 計還不算是它最奢侈之處,這裡的主廚劉國柱大師才是。沉穩又謙遜的劉師傅, 在京花軒明亮潔淨的廚房裡專注地烹飪他的拿手菜式。準備的過程極為繁複嚴 謹,要把一隻農場放養走地雞與金華火腿、老鴨一同慢燉8小時,做出極鮮美的 高湯。只有通過長時間的燉煮,才能讓湯的味道在鮮甜和鹹味之間取得微妙的平 衡。然後再把魚肚和蟹鉗加入這個鮮美無比的湯底裡,菜式才算大功告成。這種 GOLDEN FLOWER RESTAURANT SITS IN A JEWEL-BOX-LIKE ROOM INSIDE THE SUMPTUOUSLY DECORATED WYNN MACAU, with its rich red walls and cloisonné mosaic floor softly lit by Fortuny fixtures. The most luxurious detail, though, isn't the décor; Golden Flower's true treasure is its chef, Liu Guo Zhu.

Given the origins of Tan cuisine, its rarefied reputation today is unsurpris- ing. Its namesake, Guangdong-born Tan Zongjun, moved to Beijing in the late 19th century as a high-ranking official in the Qing dynasty. Tan quickly earned plaudits for more than just his professional standing.
