Our anniversary was on May 07; we decided that spending 28 years together calls for a sumptuous dinner at Mainland China, Gurusaday Road – the place we went in when they started about 20 years ago.
My usual choice at Mainland China is their well spread buffet, but this time around, wife and son decided against; so I had to go along and agree to taste from the A-La-Carte menu – I must tell you that at the end of the meal, I have had no regrets for falling in line.
The assorted DimSums (chicken, prawn and crab cakes, alongwith delicious mustard and black pepper sauce) was superb – rightly steamed and served well. This was followed by the out-of-the world Fresh water Bekti in a light sauce – large portion of 12 reasonable sized Becktis, honey sauce oozing from the sides – made for a great appetizer! (In fact, I was full by this time round). Beer to accompany for the 2 of us and a chilled glass of Lime, Lychee and Gondhoraj Lime for my son – we tasted this concoction – I can surely say that such drinks far outweigh the usuals.
The main course included Roast Chicken Fried Rice, Vegetable Hakka Noodles (suggested by the person serving – his logic – too many non veg dishes ordered – for balance, we needed a Veggy food – and he was right) with a large helping of Roast Lamb in pepper sauce all presented properly and tasted even better.
What a better way to end such a lovely dinner than to have a helping of Honey Glazed Noodles and a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
The pricing is above average at Rs 4,000 for the dinner, but sometimes pricing needs to be sheltered in the taste
Thanks Mainland China for such a memorable Dinner!
