wp-image-1222507728

Chinese cuisine is an important part of Chinese culture, which includes cuisine originating from the diverse regions of China, as well as from Chinese people in other parts of the world. Because of the Chinese diaspora, Chinese cuisine has influenced many other cuisines in Asia, while modifications made to cater the local palate.

The preference for seasoning and cooking techniques of Chinese provinces depend on differences in historical background and ethnic groups. Geographic features including mountains, rivers, forests and deserts also have a strong effect on the local available ingredients, considering climate of China varies from tropical in the south to subarctic in the northeast. Imperial, royal and noble preference also plays a role in the change of Chinese cuisines. Because of imperial expansion and trading, ingredients and cooking techniques from other cultures are integrated into Chinese cuisines over time.

The ancient Taoist principle of Yin and Yang in which balance and contrast are the key. Each Chinese dish reflects a balance of taste, texture, aroma and colour. Be it sweet, sour, pungent, hot, salty or spicy – all the six basic flavours are incorporated deftly in all Chinese dishes.

Indian Chinese cuisine is the adaptation of Chinese seasoning and cooking techniques to Indian tastes through a larger offering of vegetarian dishes. The Indian Chinese cuisine is said to have been developed by the small Chinese community that has lived in Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) for over a century. Today, Chinese food is an integral part of the Indian culinary scene. It is also enjoyed by Indian and Chinese communities in Malaysia, Singapore and North America.

Chill Grill Brand comes from the Family of the legendary Chinese Room Restaurant (East Street).

img_3997

Double Roti has started its full bar menu and some finger licking food from 23rd Nov. 

We as #FriendsofTheBteam were invited for tasting the upcoming and yummiest finger food which compliments the newly launched bar menu along with mouthwatering desserts. 

Coming directly to the Menu spread for the evening (tried and tasted): 

Cocktail:

1. Apple & Cinnamon Sangria: The Aromatic Spice infused in the Apple Flavoured Sangria compliments so well that this will be one of the Favourite drink for all the Sangria lovers. #Recommended

2.Cranberry & Pomegranate Sangria : Nice Blood red colour with the sweet and sour taste along with wine warmth makes it a perfect for any season. #Recommended.  

3.Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita: Freshness and coolness of cucumber and  Jalapeno’s spiciness with Salted glass rim makes this very uncommon from the regular Margarita’s. After having first sip you get the freshness of cucumber first and then the warm feeling of the Jalapeno while it passes through the taste buds. 

Finger Foods:

1. Tomato Basil Bruschetta: Basic Bruschetta with fresh Tomato and basil placed on a french loaf.

2. Caramelised Onion & Feta Bruschetta: For me this was the showstopper. Perfectly Caramelised onion with a Feta’s tangy and salty taste which actually enhanced the taste of the onions. Perfect Dish to start with. #HighlyRecommended 

3.  Mushroom Bites: Tooth pick bites were easy to pick and gallop in between sips. Perfectly marinated with spice and deep fried till crispy golden brown. Non-Mushroom eaters as well can finish off the whole portion these are so yummy!! #Recommended.

4. Loaded Nachos: Crispy Nachos topped with Cheese Sauce, Fresh finely chopped Tomato’s, Onions, Jalapeños and Cilantro along with Salsa Sauce made this dish into #Musttry category.

5. Cheeseling Bhel: Cheeseling can also be so interesting just came to know when I took a spoon from it.  Served in a paper cone along with Finely Chopped onion, Tomato and green chillies, sprinkled with tangy chaat masala… #Musttry. 

Burgers:

1. Double Trouble: This burger was just Juicy and tasty right from the first bite. Looking at the portion size one is not enough as the size is bit small although it depends on individual appetite. 

2.Tiki Tiki Bun Bun: I personally didn’t find anything innovative, it had just the regular taste tikki with some salad on it. 

Desserts: 

1. Brownie with Ice Cream : Nice n Warm Walnut brownie with a Scoop of Ice Cream was good comparing to the other restaurants.  

2. Blondie  with Ice Cream: It was bit on a harder side at the first bite itself. 

3. Creme Brulee : This comes from the custard family in the base topped with a contrasting thin layer of hard Caramel. It was mouth melting.
