Chinese New Year - 16th February 2018
This is the year of the Dog according to the Chinese calendar and restaurants across the city are eager to celebrate. Chinese cuisine is a popular one in the city and restaurants are going out of their way to ensure they put their best dish forward. This Chinese New Year, we think you should indulge your taste buds at some of the best Chinese restaurants in Mumbai. These are our favourites.
Not only do they have gorgeous food but Yauatcha is reinventing the traditional Chinese lantern and is hosting unique installations of the same through the restaurant all month long. They have got a simple but celebratory special meal for Chinese New Year including treats like Red Snapper In XO Sauce, Black Truffle and Asparagus Fried Rice and of course their signature Macarons in three new flavours.
The celebrations here are plenty. The restaurant has a special menu featuring dishes from all the Hakkasan chefs from around the world. Think Lobster In Black Truffle Glaze or a Baked Chilean Sea Bass With Kumquat Glaze. Eating fish at Chinese New Year is said to increase prosperity. You can choose whichever tickles your fancy; not to mention enjoy a special 'Lion Dance performance ( on selective days )' and even write down your wish for Chinese New Year and tie it with a red ribbon to their Wishing Tree, an annual tradition they love to keep.
The Taj Mahal Palace hotel boasts of excellent restaurants but the one with the biggest following of loyal diners has got to be Golden Dragon. It is for most of the South Mumbai residents, the epitome of Chinese cuisine and a flock here every chance they get. This month the restaurant along with other Chinese restaurants in the Taj group like Ming Yang and China Inc are celebrating with a special menu to usher in the year of the dog. Black Bean Sesame Rice Rolls or Vegetable Cellophane Noodle Jiaozi anyone?
