If dim sums are your thing, read on! This one's for all the Chinese cuisine lovers out there. Located in the Shangri-La's - Eros Hotel, New Delhi, Shang Palace is a 47-year old legacy that is dishing out authentic Chinese fare. The three specialty chefs at Shang Palace Chef Ye Haijun (a dim sum culinary master), Chef Kong Fanyi (an expert of Chinese barbeque) and Chef Fulei (a proficient wok chef) have put together an innovative culinary line-up of authentic delicacies that are sure to tantalise your taste buds. If you wish to experience authentic Sichuan, Cantonese and the mystical cuisine of Yunnan, then head straight to Shang Palace. The food is made with the freshest locally available ingredients and authentic ingredients sourced from China and then presented in a sophisticated and contemporary style.
The menu highlights Chef Ye Haijun's dim sum selection that includes unique flavours like Sizzling Water Chestnut and Mushroom XO Dumpling, Lamb Pot Sticker, Crusty Baked Barbecue Iberico Pork Bun, Steamed Chicken Wonton in Sichuan Chili Garlic Oil and more. While you have a plethora of interesting options to choose from, we have some recommendations for you. You could start your evening with Mushroom and Vegetable Dumpling - the finely chopped pieces of button mushrooms along with a melange of seasonal vegetables taste immensely delicious. We also tried Baked Puff With Eggplant In Chilli And Garlic Sauce - this delight is sure to make even the most ardent eggplant haters fall in love with its flavours. Crispy from the outside and soft from the inside, this dumpling is quite innovative. Non-veg lovers can try their hands at Steamed Spicy Pork Wonton In Sichuan Chilli Garlic oil or even Scallop Har Gao with Chives.
If you wish to indulge in something on a lighter note, go for their sizzling Water Chestnut and Mushroom XO dumpling. These pocket-sized delights are served on a hot stone and complement well with the fiery sauces. You can also opt for poached delicacies like Peking Style dumpling - this one is a bit high on the spice quotient. So spice lovers, take note! However, our highlight of the meal stands out to be the Yunnan Skewers that included Smoked Eggplant & Young Pepper in garlic chilli oil. If you're up for all-things-garlicky, then go for this.
If you have a special liking for vodka, then go for their Ni Hao cocktail. This vodka-based cocktail has a subtle flavour of ginger, kafir lime and lemon grass.
The new menu of Shang Palace has an interesting collection of dim sums that are sure to be a paradise for any dim sum lover. So, head to this place and try out their new and eclectic menu.
