Some time ago Hyatt Regency’s China Kitchen replaced 60 per cent of its dishes. The head chef brought in the flavours of Chinese street food, while keeping the Indian palate in mind. The result was a meat-heavy, green-heavy affair of spice-laden food.
A glimpse through the menu will in all likeliness have you salivating. It comes in book form with a hard cover and lots and lots of pictures. This may be a little deviation from the usual lists we’re faced with but it’s a good change. It’s always nice to get an idea of what you’re ordering (especially when you’re shelling out the big bucks).
We were told that the head chef from Hyatt Regency Beijing flew down to further train the chefs at China Kitchen. He’s added a lot of meats (pork, yay!) and greens to the menu, all the while keeping the spice level high (we’re talking Chinese spices) to suit the Indian palate.
So we say you try their Red Chilli Coriander Shrimp Mousse with Ginger Soy, Hunan Style Sliced Pork, Chocolate Cigar accompanied by Fairview Sauvignon Blanc, Orchard Sour.
There’s also plenty of vegetarian options like the Fresh Pea and Corn Dumpling. Highlights include the spicy Hunan Style Sliced Pork, the Twice Cooked Crispy Lamb Shank and Stir Fried Asparagus with Porcini Mushroom.If you have a sweet tooth, do yourself a favour and order the dessert platter. It comes with an assortment of yummy things like an egg blueberry tart, homemade ice cream, a mango souffle and the best, chocolate cigars. Bite into them and then take a shot of alcohol immediately after (options include cognac, whiskey and orange liqueur)- best combination ever.
What you'll be even happier to know is that they are now delivering their delicious food within a radius of 5 kms from their location. And needless to say they follow WHO guidelines while preparing food, so you're sure they're taking their precautions.
