Ming Yang is back!

 

IMG_6169IMG_6159 IMG_6196Happy news for all the Ming Yang fans! Your favourite chinese restaurant is back in the city! This time, it’s bigger and better.

Black and grey stone walls, bronze armour tiles, cloud chandeliers and a huge silver dragon that sits right in the center of the restaurant, every element here has a story to tell.

We were invited for a preview and as we were seated, the first thing that arrived on our table was a cup of tea called the Secret Seven, made of seven secret ingredients! What’s inside, no one knows.

The food, without a doubt, was top notch. Be it the dismiss, appetisers or the main course, everything was delicious. Our favourites on the menu were the Prawn Cheung Fun, Ming Yang Chicken, the Steamed Chilean Sea Bass with pickled chilli and the Celery and lotus stem in white wine sauce. In the desserts, we loved the Rice Pudding and the Origin Chocolate Mousse with Five Spiced Caramelised Popcorn.

Another thing that caught our fancy were these infused ice cubes which we are definitely going to try at home!

Ming Yang, thank you for being back! You have been missed ūüôā

All Things Nice Wine Week Begins

The Wine Week is back and this time the preview dinner was held at Sofitel’s Jyran.

Hosted by Nikhil Agarwal, founder of All Things Nice, the preview dinner showcased a selection of wines paired with a five course meal. The wines that we tried included Grover Vineyards Art Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2013, India, Brancott Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2011 Marlborough, New Zealand, Charosa Vineyards Viognier 2013 Charosa, India,  Vina Edmara Chardonnay 2013 Central Valley, Chile, Vallonné Vineyards Rose 2013 Nasik, India, Myra Vineyards Reserve Shiraz 2013, India,  Ets Thunevin Bad Boy 2011, Bordeaux, France, Reveilo Late Harvest Chenin Blanc 2013 Nasik, India.

Our favourites from these were the Charosa Viognier 2013, Vallonn√© Rose 2013 and the Myra Reserve Shiraz 2013.
