You have seen my previous post on our project #bloggersontheroad where I wrote about our trip to Amritsar.
We stayed at Hyatt Amritsar and enjoyed their hospitality. Though our expedition, kept us on the roads as we were exploring the city, yet the stay had been memorable and relaxing.
On the second night, after a tiring day of exploration, we decided to stay at Hotel and have our dinner at ThaiCHi, their speciality restaurant that serves Thai and Chinese. The name of the restaurant itself reflects the spirits of the food/cuisine.
Chinese is one of the most popular international cuisine in India and now it has almost become part of our cuisine and every region has their own version of Chinese. We were tired and didn’t want to indulge in heavy overloading and hence this restaurant was our choice for the night.
ThaiChi has typical Asian interior. The red chandelier, décor, gives it a typical Chinese feel. Chef Prakash, at ThaiChi is the seasonal pan Asian chef and has excellent knack as well as experience in serving excellent pan Asian cuisine.
Thai soup which is part of his new menu has the perfect spice level with pinch of tanginess in light broth – an excellent way to start your meal.
I skipped the salad and opted for some appetizers. I couldn’t resist from trying a spoon of Thai quinoa salad with fresh herbs and lime vinaigrette. It was quiet nice. Chicken and prawn dimsuns were excellent.
Satay gai( Thai herb marinated chicken skewer) and fish fillet that was tossed with lime chilli coriander had the perfect punch and very well complemented with my old monk J.
I ordered Beijing roasted duck tossed with scallion and hoisin sauce and prawns yellow Thai curry that came with veg fried rice and veg noodles. Ritu and Nikhil settled for silken tofu in bean curd and shredded chicken tossed on light soya sauce.
The roasted Beijing duck in hoisin sauce was excellent and I almost finished the entire bowl along with some rice.
They also serve Peking duck and you would need to book/inform in advance. If you are eating in a pan Asian restaurant and see tab tim grob in the dessert section – I bet you can’t order any other sweet dish to finish your meal.
ThaiChi offers Authentic Asian food and if you are in Amritsar, you shouldn’t miss frequenting this place for the love of Thai and Chinese. Aking with the amazing food, the intricate work on the wooden panels as well as the red/white lights creates an ambience of peaceful and soulful food!
