Celebrating Cheat Days
Type of cuisine :
They have been given many names from Indo-Chinese cuisines to Desi-Chinese cuisines and more recently Chindi cuisine. This fusion food resides with the original Chinese ethnic community of Kolkata, who immigrated to India looking for better prospects and a better life some 250 years ago. The Chinese immigrants then started food outlets and catered their culinary offerings to suit their Indian patrons.
1. Slightly different menus for different outlets
2. Set menus – est. $20 per person
3. Ala carte menu will set you back to about $25 per person
Who to take here :
They have four outlets with the main restaurant at 100, Syed Alwi Road where the menu has more varieties and the has a more fine dining atmosphere.
The outlet I visited at MBFC is more for lunch crowds and group gatherings. They do have a small private room that can hold up to 10 pax.
More suitable for casual get togethers and possibly corporate team lunches. Great menu and selection.
Ambience and Setting : Depending on which outlet you are at but the most chic setting would be at their main restaurant.
Speed – Dishes comes in spurts. Probably due to the lunch crowd. Several reminders had to be made with the service staff.
Staff – They do try their best to meet the demands of the patrons. However, there may be a lack of manpower. Our tea order came in paper cups but our water came in authentic steel glasses. What’s with that?
Just A Little More Info
Chinese Indian food is generally characterized by its ingredients: Indian vegetables and spices are used, along with a heavy amount of pungent Chinese sauces, thickening agents, and oil. Stir-fried in a wok, Indo-Chinese food takes Chinese culinary styles and adds spices and flavors familiar to the Indian tongue
1. Set menus and Ala Carte for lunch and dinner.
2. The menu covers almost every kind of popular Chindi Cuisine
3. Make sure you leave some tummy for desserts. Its a must try
Order more than one. The portions are small and the service may be a little slow.
Hara Bhara Kebab
Best vegetarian pattie I have tried so far.
Slightly spicy but once you start…good luck trying to stop
1. Pistachio Ice Cream
2. Lychee Ice Cream
3. Carrot Cake (This is really good.)
Do not be stingy on this. The few more km of running or time in the gym is worth it.
1. Don’t know if I am neat picking, but why wold any restaurant serve their famous masala tea in a paper cup and the more humble plain water in an authentic Indian steel glass. Just cannot get my head around this.
2. These meat dumplings were highly raved but did not really do anything for me actually. It was neither good for a Chinese dumpling or had any Indian flavours. The skin was a little too thick.
1. Make your reservations early.
2. Recommend to go to the main restaurant at Syed Alwi Road. Better menu there.
