China Club, MG Road, Gurgaon

One of the oldest fine dine restaurants in Gurgaon, China Club has developed a niche clientele of its own. The class apart dishes, the freshness of ingredients and the impeccable service are enough to attract Oriental cuisine lovers.

We were told by the manager that the majority of ingredients are sourced from China on a daily basis and the prawns are shipped straight from the Odissa coast.

Here are some of the dishes that we relished:

Crispy vegetables with ginger: Mushrooms and cauliflower lightly sauteed in ginger, garlic, green and red chillies with a very subtle tangy flavour – the vegetarian starter upped it’s game! Highly Recommended.

Boiled chicken dimsum in spicy chilli sauce: The dimsums are of course bland but they are drenched in a super spicy chilli sauce and hence a very “runny nose” experience. Recommended.

IMG_20190209_134354-01

Home style sliced chicken with black fungus: Again super spicy and a runny nose. The chicken is however very tender and the mushrooms chewy. Recommended.

Sauteed prawns in black pepper: Creamy and buttery prawns fried to crispy perfection and coated with finely grounded black pepper – enjoy the throat burning! Highly Recommended.

Stir fried Chinese greens: The simple combination of asparagus, bok choy and broccoli stir fried in chopped garlic pairs perfectly well with the spicy prawns. Highly Recommended.

Vegetable fried noodle: Slurpy noodles with crunchy vegetables – what more can you ask? Highly Recommended.

Banana toffee dipped in chilled Brandy: This is a traditional Chinese dessert and is pretty unusual. The banana bits are deep fried and then caramelized and topped with sesame. These balls are then dipped in Brandy and hence develop a crusty shell. Highly Recommended.

Nooba, DLF Cyber Hub, Gurgaon

I am slowly learning to move from Indianised versions of the global dishes and gradually falling in love with the authentic versions. Nooba provided a perfect opportunity for me to explore Schezwan cuisine fashioned from the expert hands of chefs from China.

Nooba should be recognized as a family restaurant with serene interiors. The staff is courteous and the managers know their cuisine very well. All the ingredients are imported from China so the authenticity is maintained.

Shredded Chicken: The chicken is fresh, juicy and not chewy which was a relief! The flavour is subtle and not too overpowering. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20181229_135616-01

Fried Prawn: The prawns are fried but not deep fried and topped with peppery garnish and spring onions. The prawns were a fresh catch and tender in texture. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20181229_140154-01

Asparagus in Bean Curd: Kudos to these guys for giving tofu an appealing texture. And kudos to the presentation as well! The lightly sautéed asparagus are delicately placed in crusty tofu and drenched in a light vinegar based sauce. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20181229_140210-01

Chicken & Black Mushroom Dimsums: The dainty mushrooms enclosing a very subtle mixture of finely chopped chicken mince and black mushrooms should be hogged on to even when not hungry. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20181229_143553-01

Mixed Meat Noodles in White Garlic Sauce: Wok tossed Hakka Noodles with a plethora of vegetables, lamb and chicken in a silky smooth white garlic sauce – subtlety at its best! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Chocolate Roulade: Move over brownies, the delicately rolled chocolate rolls enclosing gooey chocolate syrup and served with a scoop of cool vanilla ice-cream is the perfect way to end a delicious meal. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

You got served, East of Kailash, New Delhi

Delivery: On time

Packaging: Hygienic and spill proof

Chicken Tikka: The ideal chicken tikka should be drenched in the tikka spices to the core, should be juicy and tangy. This one fulfilled all these criteria but was slightly salty. But I will HIGHLY RECOMMEND this.

IMG_20180701_212235-01

Afghani chicken tikka/Chicken malai tikka: Lord, please save me from the lovely taste of the afghani chicken tikka served here. Although slightly salty, the chicken pieces were slathered in the cream/yogurt mixture and grilled to perfection. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Veg Hakka Noodles: Thin noodles with oodles of vegetables never fail but a slight off taste in the cooking medium does spoil the experience.

Shekaza, Kalkaji, New Delhi

There definitely arrives a time when you move over the glitzy restaurants serving fast food and return to the classy old school establishments which still serve the dishes of your childhood. Such places continue to improvise their dishes but maintain their uniqueness. And Shekaza is one such dine out restaurant which will impress you with their fine food and services.

We have a thing for Britishesque or European interiors with minimalism and Shekaza is the epitome of such specifications. The restaurant portrays soothing paintings with peaceful environs.

DSC_0973

It has been running successfully for the past thirty years and with their impeccable service, we seriously wish they continue to achieve new milestones.

Non veg kebab platter: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Afghani chicken tikka – perfectly grilled and melt in the mouth

Fish tikka – extremely mellow and slightly tangy fish pieces with a subtle crusty exterior.

IMG_20180512_142129-01

Gilaafi kebabs – firm and flavourful with hints of sweetness because of the presence of chopped bell peppers.

Chicken tikka – Spicy and tender chicken pieces which are difficult to resist

Drums of Heaven: For a change, this was hot but not spicy to the point of burning your palate. The magic of chopped onion and garlic along with a slight drizzle of vinegar and honey on a crusty leg piece of fried chicken can leave you in splits. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20180512_142251-01

Dahi ke kebab: The sweet yet sour hung curd deep fried in a crunchy exterior of a secret ingredient (we are aware but will not reveal) is bound to give you a major food gasm. The presence of chopped green chillies and bell peppers does give a different dimension to these lovelies. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Lemon chicken: Boneless chicken pieces drenched in a subtle yet tangy gravy of lemon and fresh vegetables – broccoli, carrots, baby corn, zuchhini, garlic, tomatoes, sweet corn and spring onions – maelstrom of flavours which can not be forgotten easily. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20180512_145729-01

Shekaza special Hakka Noodles: The finest noodles tossed with boneless chicken chunks, eggs, carrots, mushrooms, bell peppers, broccoli and spinach and served to you without the addition of vinegar – could we stop ourselves? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20180512_145718-01

Chicken Rara: Boneless chicken pieces drenched in a tomato based thick gravy of fine chicken keema – why not? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

IMG_20180512_151036-01

Overall rating: 5/5

Will we come here again? Yes and with family
