A Porky Affair With Tak Heng

What Makes It Awesome?

Those who love oriental cuisine in Kolkata, Tak Heng is the first name comes to our mind. I was very eager to try the latest sensation, Roast Chilli Pork Egg Roll. It's a rare combo of Kolkata's famous Egg Roll gets stuffing of the legendary fatty, hot and saucy pork, what a rare combo. The paratha dough was prepared with whole wheat flour if that reduced one's guilt factor.

How can I miss this opportunity not to order the Chimney Soup? The soup is a clear broth loaded with squid, chicken, pork, fish ball, shrimp, crab meat, shiitake mushrooms, carrots, bok choy and glass noodles. The high protein soup comes in a portion which is enough for 5 persons. Of course, the chimney or the Mongolian hot pot was not delivered but sipping it piping hot retains its sublime flavour. Pour a few drops of sriracha chilli sauce to amp up the flavour.

Needless to say, in the main course, it shall feature the cult Roast Chilli Pork. Juicy pork belly slices with hot chillies in every bite; can play a double role of a side dish as well as a starter. The immaculate proportion of meat and fat makes the dish stand apart. The fiery meaty dish was well complemented with Mixed Shanghai Fried Rice. The staple is the amalgamation of rice noodles (meifoon) and rice tossed with meat.
