Vegetable toasties: Crunchy toasties slathered with a very fine layer of cheese and chopped vegetables does entice you. The extra salt mars the dish, however. RECOMMENDED.
Cheese baked potatoes: A very simple dish fashioned into a delight! The warm running cheese baked in the mushy potatoes with skins does capture your heart. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Alfredo pasta: The penne was cooked al dante but the quantity of white sauce could have been better – it was sticking to the pasta and not in a very good way. RECOMMENDED.
Makhani chicken pizza: Another pizza on a wheat base and the effort is highly appreciated. The chicken chunks are flavourful but pizza base could have had a more appetizing and creamier version of the sauce.

Awadhi mutton dum biryani: The mutton pieces were available in plenty and were mellow in taste but the biryani was way too spicy. Awadhi dum biryani is supposed to be high on flavours and low on spices but the case was opposite here. There were bundles of raw spices, burnt flavour of caramelized onions and absence of saffron – for a biryani, these are not good signs.
Hyderabadi chicken dum biryani: Well well, these folks surely know how to dish out the most juicy, spice loaded non vegetarian but again, this biryani was not as spicy as a Hyderabadi should be. RECOMMENDED.
Gaajar ka halwa: This fabulous Indian dessert deserves a worthy mention here. First, this has to be the best gaajar ka halwa I have had apart from my home. Second, the melt in the mouth consistency will leave you love struck. Third, the moderate sweetness and the subtle finesse with which it has been prepared will compel you to have more of it. The owner told me that they stir the grated carrots in ghee for a longer duration and this activity gives the halwa the requisite mouth warming texture. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
When Pas Asian cuisine can be relished in the comfort of your office or home without the hassle of cooking, then what more can you ask for?
We recently laid our hands on the newest entrant to the South/Pan Asian delivery outlet – MeKong Bowl. The delivery was on time with neat packaging.
Barbeque chicken dimsums: It is difficult to stop yourself when sweet tasting finely minced chicken is wrapped into thin dimsum skin and served piping hot. Though we wish that the flavour of the barbeque sauce was more pronounced. RECOMMENDED.
Pad Thai Noodles: Moist flat noodles drenched in a tomato based tangy sauce and served with finely chopped onions is indeed your culinary dream come true, but the presence of sprouts and vegetables was sorely missed.
Udon noodle bowl: Ohhh boy, where to start? Subtle tasting slurpy udon noodles served with juicy shiitake and button mushrooms, crunchy baby corns and bak choy leaves with a generous amount of sweet and spicy coconut based gravy – a maelstrom of flavours. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
