The very notion of having Chinese food starts with the lip-smacking starters which are dry and stir-fried with mild spices and sauces. Monkey Chef nestled in the bylanes of Deshapriya Park is all about good Chinese food maintaining the dishes in the aspect of aroma, appearance and taste. The place can accommodate 15 people at a time.
An array of mouth-watering appetizers, soul-satisfying main course and some desserts in a pocket-friendly place what else do you need?
Try out the Dragon Chicken, a boneless chicken satay tossed in sweet and spicy sauce serves to be a great starter. Alternatively, if you're a momo lover you must try their Bhutanese Momo which is their speciality. The chicken fillings are juicy while the outer coating is all covered with spicy sauce. The Pan Fried Chilli Fish has diced Bell peppers, chillies and garlic wok tossed in their special sauces.
For the main course, you gotta try their Healthy Chow Chow Rice, which is prepared without oil and consist of proteins like shredded chicken, pak choi, mushrooms, celery, diced bell peppers, and has a gravy-like consistency. Pair it with their Oyster chicken or Devil's Chicken. They follow the policy of Confucianism where the food is cut into bite-size pieces which ensures the proper incorporation of spices and flavours. A bowl of Oyster or Devil's Chicken along with a plate of Chilli Garlic Noodles is enough to share among 3 persons.
The Mustard Fish is their USP, as mustard is not used Chinese dishes but they have totally aced it. Fresh basa fish coated and deep-fried and covered in mustard sauce gravy is a win-win.
