After Indian, this is the most popular and preferred choice for the people here. This event promises to be yet another gastronomic celebration of taste; coming together from two diverse cultures of China and India.”
For Starters, Chef Han recommends diners fresh cucumber salad with spicy soy bean sauce, that lends an interesting mix of tangy and spicy flavours. Pan fried crispy prawn dumplings with celery, mushroom & truffle oil are unique for their smoky flavours, and something one would have never tried before. The Spicy Mushroom & Chicken Dumplings have a juicy chicken inside the soft outer coating that makes them a great option as well.
Next on the Menu is Chicken Spring rolls with shitake, pepper and spring onions. Juicy chicken rolled inside a crunchy coating is a must try. Vegetable spring roll with smoked bamboo shoots and fungus is a favourite for non-meat lovers.
Moving on to the main course, a must-have is Cumin Chilly Lamb chop, Chef Han’s signature preparation. Imported lamb chops tempered with cumin chili sauce will leave you licking your fingers. Also a must-try is Sichuan Fried Noodles with vegetables, bell peppers, and yellow bean sauce. The noodles are superb and nicely made with sesame oil flavour. The pan fried tofu and tofu in soy sauce make for a delectable treat indeed. The velvety silk texture of the tofu along with the bassa and nutrient elements and the warmth of fresh veggies & ginger in Sichuan pepper sauce are highly recommended by Chef Han.
The wok-fried asparagus with button mushrooms tastes amazing. This dish is cooked in mild garlic sauce and the fresh taste of delicate asparagus is delicious. It is an absolute must-have delicacy and an all-time favourite.
Lastly, the crispy fried banana with sesame cream sauce is a unique preparation that will suffice your sweet tooth craving and you won’t ask for anything more.
