ORI­EN­TAL DE­LIGHT

CHINA HOUSE

India Today - - SIMPLY GUJARATI -

The Pek­ing Duck might be the stand-out dish for the China House in Mum­bai, but at its Ahmed­abad restau­rant, the Jain ver­sion of fa­mous Chi­nese dish is the big­gest high­light. The sprawl­ing restau­rant, done up with hints of warm-orange, red and gold is a hit with lo­cals look­ing for au­then­tic fare in a classy am­bi­ence. The high­lights of the menu are the dim sums, steamed Chi­nese buns, steamed spinach in mus­tard-sesame sauce and dumplings with fill­ings that range from glass noo­dles to steamed lamb. While meat lovers have a va­ri­ety of chicken, lamb, seafood and pork dishes, there are am­ple veg­e­tar­ian op­tions on the menu as well. It’s one of the few places in the city where you can find good udon noo­dles. If you don’t mind a dash of spice, try the dan-dan noo­dles with peanut broth. The desserts are a sump­tu­ous treat—try the jas­mine-flavoured tea-raminsu, the dark choco­late kumquat slice and the mango pud­ding, a Thai spe­cialty. MEAL FOR TWO Rs 2,000 AT Hy­att Re­gency, Ashram Road
