Golden Dragon at Taj Coromandel has launched its new menu and oh my god, it’s just amazing.
There are not many restaurants in India that serve authentic Chinese food. But am glad that Golden Dragon does it and has an expat chef who ensures it’s authentic till his last shout!
The ambience and service I think need not be mentioned at all. Taj is one of those few hotels that gives service the utter most importantance and they take pride in doing so.
My evening started with a warm welcome and amuse bouche- Asparagus and water chestnut with sweet bean sauce.
The soup had to follow. Spicy peanut butter soup, that just slipped through my throat, pipping hot and yummy!
The starters were a mix on veg and non vegetarian, each with its unique flavour, spice, texture and crunch.
Baked Taro with black pepper and honey was a perfect blend of hot and sweet. Extremely appealing to one’s eyes and palate.
Duet of Asparagus with white garlic sauce was very subtle in flavour,I personally loved the flavour.
Steamed Lo Hon ( rice paper rolls) this dish was soft from outside and crunchy inside with veggies. This is available gluten free. I loved the soy sauce drizzled on top though.
The Beijing onion cake is a dish that I have never heard or had before. And boy! it was so yummy, it crumbled like butter cookie and the soft onion’s inside just melted in my mouth. A must try new dish.
Moving to the non vegetarian starters.
The juicy crab dumpling was soft succulent and sweet. The freshness of the crab comes from the sweet taste of the crab. And it was perfect!
The Beijing pan fried chicken was made to perfection and was garnished with garlic, this enhanced the flavour of the chicken.
The fried lamb shanks with black bean chilli sauce, not only looked good but tasted perfect. Crusty from outside and well done inside.
And the highlight of my dinner and my most most favourite dish was the sliced lamb with ginger and kailan. This is a must try if you like subtle flavor. I just fell in love with this dish. Last and the best for a beautiful evening!
