Ming Yang at The Taj lands end

Newly reopened post a face-lift, it sure looks perkier and swankier. As I walked in I was plainly curious to walk over the restaurant. In tallying with remarkable art work with lots of stories, the sections ensure that the space doesn’t get overwhelming, as it&’s fragmented into both large and intimate dining sections. Coming to food, I would suggest one sets the palate free to engage in an exploration of the senses. Having a penchant for soups, I truly enjoyed chef David&’s wholesome and utterly delectable chicken dumpling soup.

Premium sea food is the order of the day with brilliant fresh sea-food on offer. No other restaurant does the stir fried pomfret sautéed with purple onion, chilli, garlic and Shaoxing wine to such magical effect. Fragrant, crispy and flavoursome…absolutely wonderful! Authentic Chinese cuisine shows off the chef &’s novelty with outstanding service that the Taj Lands’ End is well-known for.

One might discover stimulating conversation while sipping on some of the finest wines and devouring the most decadent meal. I was craving something refreshingly new for my slightly overdone palate and this proved to be an exciting dining experience. The crowds that pack the restaurant everyday testify to the welcoming ambience and impeccable service here. Truly, while the essence of Ming Yang remains, its translation in this new avatar is indeed exceptional.

Happy Hakka at Home

The theory of home delivery snitched into our households long ago but Happy Hakka makes the entire experience very special, more so as it comes with expedient and no chaos sorted packaging. The service is the perfect way to end a long day for many home makers, who want to skip the fast food craze but still be able to feed his or her family a good Pan Asian meal. What else can explain the positive response by the Gurgaon and South Delhi dwellers to this new service of home delivery being offered by Happy Hakka?

The menu offers a host of vigorous dishes comprising great flavours, which are available in meal in a box options as well as larger portions comprising many old favourites too. This makes it easier even if you are a family of two or a much larger family! Begin your culinary sojourn with the Hawker style Momos Rs they are absolutely succulent. The house&’s outright winner of a dish is the Thai soul curry, their take on the red curry. Bean curd is transformed into a culinary work of art with none of the blandness that one may associate with it; do try the Emperor&’s Hotpot Rs silken tofu in shitake mushrooms gravy. Other star dishes not to be missed include The Green Bean Salad and the Bangkok chilli Basil.

The China Kitchen, Hyatt Regency 

Then one longs for authentic Chinese food, there are only a few restaurants in Delhi that proffer real Chinese food and The China Kitchen at the Capital&’s Hyatt Regency is one of them. Rated as one of the best Chinese restaurants in Delhi, the place offers delicious signature Chinese delicacies.

The China Kitchen showcases the concept of dining in the kitchen, offering a stylized interpretation of the traditional Chinese dining experience. The restaurant comprises four sections, including an open kitchen, five skillfully- designed private dining rooms, the wine wall and tea bar, and the dining area. Curated by the Godfather of Chinese cuisine, chef Jack Aw Yong, executive chef at Park Hyatt Beijing, the new menu, which was launched on 3 August, aims to bring novel things with freshness.

It focuses on variety by offering mouth-watering dishes such as glutinous rice chicken roll, spinach mushroom dumpling, Chilly Jumbo Crabs served with freshly-baked baguette, Twice-Cooked Crispy Lamb Shank and the legendary signature Peking Duck. We started our meal with poached chicken salad, which was succulent enough to make you binge on it. In appetizers, the lip-smacking Beijing style vegetable dumpling and crystal vegetable dumpling were our personal favourite. The Cognac Chocolate Cigar and Jasmine Ice Cream are definitely not to miss out on.
