This year has been a tough one for many expats and local people here in China. We travel less, miss more food from home more, and spend more time in the city.
The good news is, we’ve got to know sweet Chengdu better; new restaurants, hidden alleys, undiscovered treasures… And our last 成都Eats, we mentioned new kid on the Block; Tom’s Diner. They have expanded their menu with items that are not traditionally found in diners, and they promise us that’s a good thing…

Here’s what William, owner of Tom’s Diner has to say about his new dishes:
Roanne “Sous Vide” Fillet Steak Burger
Sous Vide (temperature controlled cooking in sealed vac-packs) was invented in 1974, human has continued to be a mainstay in fine-cooking. Now, at Tom’s Diner sous vide a Fillet from a 140 days grain fed black Angus, and put that Fillet all in a burger. Having Fillet has never been easier than that, all you gotta do is take it by hand and bite.
