Chef Amit and Mr Rakesh treated us well at the restaurant. Knowing that I had not tried much of oriental food, they were very courteous in recommending the meal for us. But as usual, I am always eager to try out new cuisines and dishes.
We started with flavorsome Jasmine pearl tea, while some had rose tea which was perfect for a cold evening. It smelled and tasted good and charged me up for my meal. I do like having Jasmine tea for a cold evening. It was time I had some mocktails, I tried Mr. Hong's signature cooler, Apple, ginger and mint which was very piquant and suited my taste buds. I also had cucumber elder flower during the course of my meal and found the taste of elder flower over powering the cucumber taste. Though it had a cooling effect, I liked my Apple ginger and mint cooler.
