Pa Pa Ya, Select Citywalk, Saket, New Delhi

Talk about Pa Pa Ya and the first image that comes to my mind is a classy place with contemporary decor and a modern Asian menu prepared with finesse.

I recently visited their Biggest Dimsum festival where in I was fortunate to taste their lovely range of dimsums, dumplings and Baos.

The mocktail Pa Pa Ya and the enchanting cocktail U-Isuki-Sho

Wonton(Prawn and chives dimsums): Served in soya sauce based gravy with a light sour tone and topped with crispy caramelized garlic tangy, these dimsums will blow you over with their lusciousness.

Jiaozi (Chicken gyoza dimsums): Ahh the crisp exterior and the fine flavourful chicken mince of these pan seared dimsums! Not to forget the subtle texture of the dimsums, the crunchy caramelized garlic and of course the chopped spring onions providing their freshness.

Crystal dumplings: Whenever I had pakchoy leaves, they were put in the mixture as it is, this resulting in no finesse. But here the pakchoy leaves are finely chopped and go so well with the minced chicken to the point of absolute deliciousness. And to top it all, the dimsum skin is not too chewy like the ones of usual crystal dimsums.

Korean Chicken Bao: Talk about explosion of flavours and these Baos do justice to this phrase. The skin is fluffy, soft, sweet & slightly sour with the inside mixture of chicken lending a very hot & spicy flavour with sweet undertones.

Cheung Fun (prawn & chives): The inside crispy layer under the mellow rice paper skin is the trailer to a delicious film of minced chicken underneath.  You have to pour soy sauce based dip on it to enjoy it’s savouriness. Not to forget the chopped spring onions, bell peppers and the caramelized garlic.

Glutinous rice: Too good, melt in the mouth, and the tenderness of minced pork blows you over.

Xia long bao chicken dimsums: I shall call them soupy dimsums with a classy subtlety.

Lao Mai Gai: Hot and spicy rice with chicken and juicy mushrooms and wrapped in lotus leaf and steamed to perfection.

Yaki Udon noodles: Slurpy and sweet with fresh and crunchy vegetables.
