Tired of eating the all too familiar red and brown gravies that Chinese restaurants dish out? Then think no further and head straight to Whispering Bamboo at Vivanta by Taj Pune. The ongoing festival from the 3rd to the 12thof July offers authentic, traditional dishes prepared in the different regions of China.
Kung Pao chicken with cashew nuts was fiery and teamed well with the burnt garlic fried rice. Then came the vegetarian component of Pumpkin and potato with mustard chilli sauce. The humble pumpkin sure had a makeover and really shone through. While the Stir fried Chinese greens really boasted of fresh clean flavors.
Dessert really had my interest Piqued Deep fried sesame ferror rocher dumpling was warm and crunchy on the outside and soft molten chocolate on the inside. Sinful and oh so satisfying. The real surprise though was Red bean paste dumpling coated with nuts.It had such a unique texture and taste that it came as a pleasant surprise when I found out that the filling was none other than our local rajma.
The refined meal at Whispering Bamboo totally tingles the taste buds and irresistible tempts you to keep coming back.
