We were working this weekend and calling for some lunch is like a pre-requisite for doing so. We Mumbaikars always crave for some good Chinese food in monsoon and finding a good restaurant that serve some decent Chinese is a little hard to find. Luckily, the tried and tasted 5 spice delivers in my office area.
We went for a different menu than the regular choices and were left satisfied and burping in the end. What all we ordered? Here's the list and what our stomachs felt.
Red Chilly Pepper Paneer: Ok!!! we have eaten many starter dishes with Paneer in it, but this was surprisingly different. Needless to say, it had the Chinese touch to it, but enjoyed this one with all the fingers. The Red Chilly sauce with Pepper infused all the flavors perfectly in the soft Paneer. A great combination of all the ingredients used. Thumbs Up!!!
Roast Cantonese Chicken: Unanimously, this was the show stopper of our lunch today. The Chicken, cooked beautifully in the spicy sauce and in no time was the cynosure of every taste buds around. Double Thumbs Up!!!! Highly recommended.
Veg Korean Fried Rice: We thought of ordering some rice from a different country this time, considering we have tried Singapore, Hong-Kong, Malaysia etc before. Nothing disappointing about this dish, but can be avoided. It was just some rice cooked in vegetables with a tangy flavour to it.
Chicken Fortune Rice: I had heard about this dish from a lot of people, forums, blogs and recommended this time to others. "Fortunate"ly, it turned out to be the same as mentioned everywhere. A good mixture of rice with a nice chicken gravy to go with it. The gravy helps to raise the dish and keeps it away from drying out.
Veg Malaysian Rice: It was a very bland tasting preparation of rice in a Green Curry based sauce. Nothing like what they serve the other rice preps with. There seems to be too much of uncooked grass in it. Not recommended.
Overall, a great lunch and worth the money. We were even lucky to have the order delivered in time, because we were just dying of hunger.
