Just Introduced: Dimcha, Epicuria, Nehru Place
Remember pigging out delicious dimsums while sipping your favourite flavoured cha at Dimcha? The same old Dimcha that introduced Delhiites to the concept of pairing dimsums with tea has found a new abode at the newly opened floor of Epicuria.
Away from the hustle bustle of the food court, Dimcha is parked on one of the corner of the newly opened floor at the Epicuria. The hues of blue and white makes the restaurant look spacious. You can enjoy the clear view of what’s cooking in the kitchen while you eagerly wait for your food. For those who love to have their meal under the stars, they have a special open balcony for them as well.
The journey of hogging on Asian delicacies began with Baa Mee Tom Soup. This noodle soup which is a Thai street specialty provided much needed relief to our sore throat. The veggies swimming in the soup tempt you have another sip of it. Next on the table came French Bean and Tofu Salad which was a colourful mix of French Beans, melt in mouth Tofu, crispy onions and was drizzled with soya sauce, tamarind, lemon juice, sugar syrup and plum sauce and garnished with peanuts. If I we get to eat this delicious salad every day, we won’t mind changing our otherwise unhealthy eating habits.
Moving on to what they are famous for – dimsums – we opted to try Chilli Garlic Dumpling, Kenya Bean Dumpling and Vegetable Bao. The yellow coloured Chilli garlic dumplings stuffed with nuts were served with the peanut sauce. We loved its distinctive taste. We have fallen in love with their green coloured Kenya Bean Dumpling which were crispy and crunchy. Vegetable Bao was given a new avatar by presenting it as momos stuffed with spinach. If you like that extra sweetness in your food just like Gujaratis, then you will definitely find them to be delicious.
Next on the table came Wok Tossed Crispy Tofu in Crushed Bell Pepper. The scrumptious super soft chunks of Tofu tossed in black pepper sauce topped with fried garlic is a complete meal in itself.
Their Chrysanthemum Tea came to the rescue of our fully loaded tummy as it not only helped in washing our palate but also proved to be helpful in settling down the food.
Next we tried Exotic Vegetables in Holy Basil Sauce and Pan Fried Noodles in Ginger Chilli Sauce and paired it with Virgin Kaffir Lime Mocktail. The flavourful Exotic Vegetables in Holy Basil Sauce was served with sticky rice. But the star dish of the evening was Pan Fried Noodles in Ginger Chilli Sauce. The delicious main has succeeded to top the list of our all-time favourite comfort food. Virgin Kaffir Lime was refreshing mix of lemon juice, kaffir lime leaves, mint syrup and gingerale.
Though their desserts are not baked in their own kitchen but still their Chocolate Cake was extra moist and soft.
