Chinese and Italian are perhaps the two most popular international cuisine in our country. These cuisines have now become an integral part of our life as well. Though we mostly focus on pasta, pizza, noodles at home, however, these cuisines are much more than that. Over the last couple of weeks, I have been to the best of Italian and best of Chinese and my experience has been fantastic.
Let me first share on Sorrento. I went to Shangrila to meet my friend Ankita who has joined as Director Marcom and new chef at Sorrento – Chef Giuseppe Angelica and Neeraj Tyagi welcomed me. Sorrento unveiled their new menu and I was lucky enough to taste it beforehand. The burrata straight from Italy on the bed of quinoa was a delight. The saffron risotto with carefully pan seared wrapped in bacon was not only pleasant to the eyes but was delicious for my taste buds too. The fish with potato mesh was divine. We finished our meal with the dessert that was bustling with flavors. Chef Giuseppe Angelica has done a fantastic job with his new menu. Simple, bold and flavourful with great presentation. Sorrento is definitely one of the finest Italian fine-dine in the city. Now they are serving the new menu. If you love Italian and looking forward to eating beyond pizzas, Sorento is a must try.

China Kitchen doesn’t need any introduction. This year, they completed the 11th year and are still going strong. Now, they are coming out of the hotel and the first TCK will open in Cyberhub in October. They recently launched an additional menu that will also be part of their regular menu. This new addition has focused on Beijing style street food. Chefs of China kitchen visited Park Hyatt China and went through training for a couple of months. Food is rustic, spicy and delicious. One of the reasons for China kitchen going strong is that they import their ingredients from China, which makes their dishes more authentic. With six ex-pats chefs, this is certainly one of the best Chinese in India.
Apart from pecking duck, which is their signature, I also liked their dim sums. Their wok dishes were outstanding – especially the wok fried spicy mushroom and Sichuan style spicy lamb salad. In the main course Kingfish was excellent and so was the wok fried lamb stew. Oh! – You can’t miss their wok-fried rice with chili and bamboo shoot. I would recommend you to try their green tea tiramisu as well! A must visit for all Chinese lovers!
Both these restaurants have been serving fabulous food and people in Delhi love their food!.
