I remember my first Yum cha experience at Singapore. In middle of China town, was a small restaurant called Yum Cha where lunch would be buzzing with people to experience Yum Cha. Unlimited 40 varieties of dimsums and pork buns served on trolleys with hot tea. I can still distinguishingly remember  the jingle of the bell of the trolley as the Dim Sum lady passed by.My favorite was of course Char Siu Bao (barbequed pork buns ) and Xiā jiǎo (crystal clear shrimp dim sums).

Over the years, Bao and dimsums went on to become comfort food and Sheraton Hyderabad gave us the perfect opportunity to try the Yum Cha experience right here at Inazia. Chef Ninja ensures the Asian flavors are intact and brings out the unique authentic flavors right here in Hyderabad. Inazia offered variety of Yum Cha on your table and as their tagline simply put it across as “A whole lot of Yum and a little bit of Cha”.

We decided to sample our all-time favorite and started with Chun Guen. These fried spring rolls with vegetable and glass noodle were crispy and with a little dip of the sweet chilli and they were the most wanted dish on the table already. We moved on to bok choy which again was cabbage with oyster sauce. We then moved on to Ji Rou Shao Mai, a simple steamed chicken dumpling.

They also have an option of set menu along with dimsums and we started with hot and sour soup. Although I personally hate the spicy hot soups, these were balanced flavors and I managed to finish my bowl. If you love the flavor of the sea, do try the zicai danhua tang which is seaweed and egg soup.

For main course, we had the sichuan qiang chao ju ting. The stir fried chicken was served in sichuan sauce and complemented shu cai chao main which is stir fried noodles with vegetable with a generous helping of garlic. The ever famous x.o. chao fried rice with shrimp can be accompanied with you zha ta yu, a fried fish dish made with a base of chilli sauce.

The lunch ended with tian mi mi. These decadent homemade crispy honey noodles with a side of ice-cream makes for a great palate cleanser after a superb meal.

Mekong by Marigold does such a beautiful justice to its name. There is an underlying thought which transverses boundaries with the name alone. Named after the river which flows through six countries, Mekong by Marigold brings with it the culinary tales as it travels the course of the river bringing a true pan-Asian fare. Sushi, Thai, Burmese, Vietnamese, they all find a place on the menu at Mekong.

We had a preview of the re-launched Burrp! App. The Chef’s table at Mekong had been arranged by Burrp! in association with FBAI. I remember the times when it was the only app which I could fire up to search for restaurants to visit. Those times it was a leader and a platform where I’d gradually started writing reviews too. Burrp! now under Network 18 has been seamlessly modified to get back to where it was and truthfully I quite liked the new UI.


The Chef’s table had been elaborately planned to include the best of what Mekong had to offer. We started off with the Yam Taohu which was a light salad of green vegetables, silken tofu and straw mushroom in chilly jaggery lime dressing. The chilly jaggery and Lime deliciously balanced the flavors as the dish tip-toes on the likes of spice, sweet and sour tastes.

Sushi is where our hearts lie and that’s where Mekong’s strength lies too. The Ikura Gunkan Maki is freshness personified. Capped off with fresh salmon roe, this was the stand-out dish of the night. The Oshinko Maki brought with it the crunch of radish and bell pepper.

I’ve always liked having sips of Jasmine tea between my courses coz it helps clean out the palate between courses and I was glad the service staff didn’t falter on filling up on the tiny teacup. Among the starters that night the Hanoi Toi Tom which comes with tossed in a delectable garlic sauce was the best of the lot.

As we gradually made our way through to the main course, I settled over my plate of Lamb Massaman Curry. The Thai Massaman curry is rich in flavors and relatively rich, tracing its roots and inspiration back to Persia. The best way to enjoy a good Massaman curry is to have it with a simple jasmine rice where all its flavors burst through. The Gai Pad Bai Gaprow (Thai style mince chicken with chilly basil) and Curries Crab made for enjoyable accompaniments.

The night ended over some good conversations with the Burrp! Team over a plate of desserts consisting of a Dates Cigar, Coconut Jaggery ice-cream and the heavenly Thap Thim Krawp. Mekong isn’t just any other Pan-Asian restaurant but one where a lot of thought has been given to design the food along the name it has to live up to.
