***NEW PLACE ALERT*** It's been quite some time we came across a restaurant serving bang on point Authentic Chinese cuisine. And by Authentic, we really do mean Authentic!
There are many who claim to be Authentic but fail to deliver. But Open China delivers what it promises.
Not recommended for Desi Chinese Lovers.
Located at AB Nair Road in Juhu, it's a huge spacious restaurant with a soulful maroon and yellow ambience.
Coming to the food, we were served their Preview Dinner Menu:
1. CHICKEN MANCHOW
Different than the usual one but nonetheless good.
2. SEA FOOD CORIANDER
Just fell in love with this one. Perfect bland of prawns and crab meat in a clear coriander soup.
1. SCALLOP DUMPLINGS
2. CHICKEN SUI MAI
Both were authentic and to the point though we would pick the Scallop Dumplings here.
1. SALT & PEPPER SMOKED CHICKEN
Quite an unusual preparation. But goes well along with their in-house sauces.
2. LETTUCE WRAP WITH LAMB AND PLUM SAUCE
Really liked the fusion here. The minced lamb meat, complimented the lettuce wrap very well and the plum sauce was delicious as a topping!
3. BUTTER GARLIC PRAWNS
All your preconceived notions about this dish will be blown away as you are served the authentic version minus the extra spices with the butter and garlic bang on point. Prawns were fresh and made us call for a second portion!
1. EGG FRIED RICE
Nothing specific to mention. But liked the presentation of perpendicular strips of egg on the rice.
2. SCHEZWAN CHICKEN
Tasted good but a little more gravy was required to go along well with the Egg Fried Rice.
3. PRAWNS GREEN CURRY WITH STEAM RICE
A Thai preparation. We found it okay and something you can skip upon.
A fusion of 4 desserts. (Check our next post)
To sum it up - Love for authenticity, moderate spicing, beautiful flavours and top notch garnishing is what made us fall in love with @openchinaindia
Do try it folks! (Only if you like Authentic Chinese.) #juhudiaries #previewdinner #newplacealert #TheHungryCouplesz
