After the movie, we walked around Koramangala, trying to decide where to go for dinner. We finally arrive at a place where there are four restaurants: La Terezza, China Pearl, Esplanade, and Chung Wah. Chinal Pearl had people waiting outside to get seated (at 9:30 PM!), La Terezza, I've been told isn't all that nice, so between Esplanade (Bengali cuisine) and Chung Wah, we chose Chung Wah coz we thought we could have a light Chinese meal and leave - that was mistake number 1.
And so we enter and are seated, and I notice these three words on the menu
Lovely! If only life were that simple. Mr VP and I ordered a plate of fried wontons while Mr p ordered a plate of steamed momos (no picture).
Mr P and I split a soup called the 3 Treasure soup, which had shitake mushrooms, glass noodles, and some other stuff that I can't remember, but the soup smelt good, and wsan't bad to taste either.
char shui pork and this thing was yummy. The fat was juicy and the pork itself was done well.
vegetable steamed rice was what Mr P ordered, and along with that he also ordered a veg Nasi Goreng for Mr VP and me.
I had serious doubts if we could finish everything that we ordered - it simply seemed too much.
But finish we did, and after dinner, we ambled out of the restaurant, wondering if we'd just roll down the street if we lost balance. I particularly felt nice and fat :) but we did manage to reach the mall (Forum) where we had parked, and the drive back home was blissful.
Food: One of the better 'Chinese' joints.
$$$: Total value for money. Not as cheap as a Chungs or some of the other smaller Chinese joints, but worth it.
Verdict: Sure, go there if you're in the area.
