    Chinese, at its best

    If you are one of those fed up with the Indian version of Chinese food, Confucious in Swosti Premium is the place you should head to. In an ambience that is minimalist, one gets to taste an amazing range of 20 dishes at the Dim Sum festival that continues till February 14.One can start with the Wanton soup, a combination of vegetables and some chicken pieces. The soup may not interest you initially, but add a few drops of soya sauce and it transforms into a delightful starter. This can be enjoyed with Chicken Drumstick with hot garlic sauce. The soup is fairly filling and sets the mood for the feast that is lavishly spread.From the massive collection of dim sums on offer, one can start with the mixed vegetable and baby corn, a curious match of Indian and Chinese cuisine. The spice levels are moderated and the corn is served fresh, making it a must try.Vegetarians can also munch on the assorted bell pepper with cottage cheese, American corn salt and pepper, cottage cheese toasted with exotic vegetables, vegetable spring rolls, which tastes excellent with a dash of the red dim sum sauce.In the non-vegetarian section, one can begin the culinary treat with pan fried fish with lemon butter sauce and prawn with sauce of your choice (Hunan, Oyster, Taiwanese).Crunchy and a bit oily, it is a great nibble. The dim sums on offer score on the presentation too.Another dish worth mention is the chef’s special Pomfret, whole Bhekti and Lobster with Szechwan, Hong Kong and Tai Pei sauces. The cabbage in the preparation provides a crunchy sensation.The crab meat dumplings resemble a cutlet and the distinctive taste of the crab is preserved well and it goes well with the sauces on offer. The soft outer covering adds to the taste.There are also rolls wrapped in ultra thin sheets of sticky rice and their fillings have tasty bits of chicken and prawn. The meal can be wrapped up with fried ice-cream, date pan cake and ice-cream with fruit salad. What more does one wish for !
