Food has it own space of joy for all ,or lets put it this way its probably the only ultimate source of happiness in everyone’s life. And when you get it yummy and wholesome its even better and delightful indeed. That is what ASIA HOUSE made me feel in my recent visit at their location 17 A, Lake View Road, Southern Avenue, Kolkata .
This newly opened restaurant specializes with a great selection of Asian cuisine right from Chinese,Thai,Burmese,Vietnamese,Indonesian,Malaysian,Singaporean and still many to add on in the days to come maybe.It is definitely going to attract many food lovers in the city who love to get their kind of food right in one place. The kind of place this restaurant is located is very nice and very easy to locate if you are prominent with Southern avenue lanes .Coming to the decor and interior i must say they have kept the restaurant to look fine dine as much as possible with nice Asian ambiance arts displayed above the roof and nice photo frames all over making it very eye catching. Talking about the seating inside well its spacious enough for big groups of family or friends as well as for couples too so getting a table wont be a problem however table bookings must be recommended at times .
The Hospitality displayed by the staff and owners were very courteous and encouraging to feast on with complete satisfaction which definitely was very pleasing to notice. A big Thumbs up at my end for building a positive atmosphere around which sure added more flavour and meaning to the food relished totally.
So knowing all that lets get to know the food story polished now one by one :
VIETNAMESE PHO – A kind of clear soup made in Vietnamese way added with red Chillies,Chicken,assorted veggies and rice noodles. On taste this way a hot version soup but very nicely made and sufficient enough to build your tastebuds in action for the main course.
PLA SAD TAKRAI – Crispy fried slices of fish made with a lemon twist and had other necessary flavours thanks to lemongrass,coriander,chillies for setting the taste . It was nice and yummy to have as well as had a good portion of quantity was served which makes it a must have here.
JIANG’S PAN FRIED CHILLI CHICKEN – Nice and crispy slices of Chicken fried along with great flavours made it a yummy one indeed. The aroma was so tempting and to top it all the display looked even better .The chilly chicken overall was hot as well as had a sweet balance.
KHAO PAD KRATIEM ,SLICED FISH IN CHEF’S SECRET SAUCE- The rice was of nice quality and the quantity was enough to fill you .It had a great flavour balance as it had a garlic blend in it and went well with the side dish of fish which was also very much complimenting each other. A good recommendation indeed at my end .
KHAO PAD KRAPOW ,CHILLY GARLIC NOODLES – A very nice dish Khao pad Krapow is a spicy gravy based side dish loaded with chicken ,basil flavour sauce and other ingredients. It tasted good with the Chilly garlic noodles . The noodles was very promising and it had over beated almost the rice in terms of balance and quantity and succulent presentation.
CHICKEN KHAO SUEY – A good preparation of Khao suey served in a nice bowl with noodles,chicken,dressing veggies,and a strong flavour of coconut took this dish to a nice challenge to some extend but somewhere went off board in between. A check on its flavour balance must be done i feel to get it right back on track once again .
FRIED ICE-CREAM – Who does not love ice – cream ? is the big question and at least i am not counted on that part. I love the ice-cream fried here with a nice outer coating of coconut and toppled over with chocolate sauce. What a beauty of a taste this was and a sure dessert hit over here which is recommended to be tried after a lovely meal or before whatever you may prefer as long as you are the boss of pay.
DARSAAN AND 2 SCOOPS OF ICE CREAM – The Darsaan is honey enriched/flavoured flat noodles fried and served along with 2 scoops of ice -cream. It was lovely and this dish will keep the dessert options highly open for folks in demand for a sweet ending.
Well that brings it to the end ,and i must admit ASIA HOUSE is surely doing a incredible job as a restaurant and it will shine and grow most definite with the current way its going.Keeping that on mind i will be back here soon to explore more in the coming days as the food story never ends ever in the history of mankind ,don’t you agree ? I am sure you do .
