Duck & Dimsum Feast at China Garden - Gurugram

Nelson Wang's China Garden defines the evolution of Indo Chinese Cuisine in India. Spread across India, the restaurant chain as two outlets in the National Capital, Delhi. Recently they opened up their doors at Trillium Mall, Gurugram, a short distance from the City's district center and the famed Gymkhana Club. 

In fact, Mainland China used to be located a couple of miles down at the famous Sector 29 market before it shut down. The locality also used to boast of Unlimited by Golden Dragon, which has also been shut down since. 

Rising amidst the demand for Chinese Food in Gurugram, the place does impress. It has been beautifully decorated in shades of gray and blue. I visited it recently for a Duck and Dimsums fest curated by Plates2Miles, a community of food lovers with an active Facebook group. They organize a variety of food events across Delhi NCR, and this was the first time I was invited to attend.

The best part of the evening apart from the great company of P2M family was the service. It was like choreographed to perfection. We had five tables to ourselves, and each dish was served on all 5, at the same time in the order listed. The service was swift, with no goof-ups, and they paid good attention to allergies a person might have. That level of attention is what differentiates a place. 

The team also made sure to compliment the dishes with a wide range of drinks.

The principal offering here was the Duck, done crisp, and tasted delicious. This was followed by a variety of different dim sums, uniquely flavored, out of which I just loved the Baked Cantonese Chicken Puffs.  Other Dim Sum and food I sampled were
  • Prawn Cheung Fun
  • Special Scallop Dumpling 
  • Seafood Dumpling in Chilly Oil
  • Steamed BBQ Roast Pork Bun
  • Taiwan Soupy Dumpling (Pork)
  • Chicken and Asparagus Dumpling
  • Steamed Tenderloin Pork Balls
  • Steamed Bean Spare Ribs
  • Prawn & Chive Dumpling
  • Chicken Dumpling with Basil and House Cream
  • Steamed Dim Sum Fish  ( Really well made Sole Fish)
  • Pork Sui Mai
  • Prawn & Shitake Mushroom Dumpling

The final course was China Garden Clay Pot Rice. I am more of a Noodles than a rice person, but the clay pot was done really well.

In the desserts, they had Nutella Chocolate Baos, which were like WOW! I could have eaten a dozen if I was not already filled up with the yummy food. They also had a Mango Pudding, which tasted great. The Cantonese Egg Tart was something I hadn't tasted before and I liked the taste.

Simply loved the food, and the great company of the P2M community only made it better. The people running this community, Mohit Mahajan, P.S. Bedi, Sharmishta Mukherjee Cheema, Vanit Taneja, and Sahil Mahajan, really put up a lot of effort to make sure that the event is a real success.

The event got all the better for me, as an opportunity came up to meet Mr. Henry Wang himself, the owner who is excited about this outlet and the food at China Garden. Considering my experience, the decades old brand still rules the game. Looking forward now to visit again to try the other parts of the Menu. I am sure, they got some good surprises their as well.

Career Impact in times of Corona Virus

In the last few days, as India comes to terms with Covid-19 and struggles with dealing with this pandemic, one question several people are asking me relates to its impact on their careers. Coronavirus is what you hear everywhere these days. Public distancing and lockdowns are being touted as effective preventive measures to limit its spread. The highly contagious virus has brought the entire global economy to its knees. In this environment, what happens to our careers? Feb-March-April is a period when several corporates roll out their annual appraisal. Salaries are hiked, promotions granted, and career advancements planned. This year, however, things look not so promising for anyone as companies brace for adverse effects on balance sheets and glaring losses due to prolonged disruptions in businesses. Here is what you need to do, confined in your homes to thrive your career -  1) Work from home - Don't just pretend to work. Get some real work done. When this is all
