A hearty lunch with some delicious dishes that won’t leave you feeling over-stuffed is exactly how I’d describe the new lunch menu at Empress of China, Eros Hotel.
The set menu offers five starters, five sides, noodles, rice, and a dessert.
The dumplings were not very unusual, but quite tasty.
What really stood out for me was the Steamed chicken with Chinese wine.
The chicken had a delicate, sweet flavour and was deliciously tender.
Four or five of these will vanish off your plate before you know it!
From the main course dishes, the basa with black bean was a clear winner.
For vegetarians: the crunchy, peppery lotus stem and water chestnut stir fry is a must. And the chinese green vegetables is done very well.
The dessert portion was large and chocolately, and although I enjoyed it, I would have preferred an oriental dessert.
The meal offers a good variety for a very reasonable price. Try it the next time you have a meeting post-noon, or just want to sample some great oriental food!
