Dimsum Lunch @ Mainland China

Once again I was back to Mainland China. Yes, it is surely my favorite Chinese restaurant in the whole city. Great food and cheap too. And one more factor for my frequent visits to this place, is my wife's preference of this place :)

So, last weekend I went to Mainland China - this time for a dimsum lunch. Although they do not have a fixed dimsum menu lunch but one can order dimsum from their a-la-carte menu. And that is what we did as well. We ordered SuiMai dimsums filled with chopped vegetables (one of our favorite there), steamed vegetable wontons in a rather unique sauce, silken tofu delight vegetable dumplings (chopped vegetables filled in a soft silky tofu covering and base) and XO sauce flavored chicken and prawn dimsums.

Nearly all of them were very good. Apart from these, other notable dimsums are vegetable hargao, prawn hargao & seafood dimsums. Overall, our dimsum lunch was worth driving down all the way from Noida to G.K. - Mainland China has never disappointed us till now. The bill for a dimsum lunch for two (consisting of five different dimsums) would be around 900 bucks. On weekends, make sure to go with prior booking - this place sells like anything.

Mrs. Kaur's Premium Cookies

They are just wonderful - who???

Well, cookies from Mrs. Kaur's Premium Cookies are just wonderful. When I was a child, there were no cookies around - only biscuits. And no one knew the difference between cookies and biscuits. Then came the liberalization and we got cookies in India as well. But then not every cookie is actually a cookie in true sense. You have to taste cookies from Mrs. Kaur's to understand what a true cookie is.

Nearly all of the cookies are very tasty. And each one of them is available in eggless form as well. Try Chocolate Chip, Florentine, Oatmeal Raisins, Almond Chocolate Chunk, All Spice Molasses & Cocoa White Chocolate. They offer brownies as well - try Chocolate Brownie (this is 'pure sin') & Cocoa Banana Bar.

You can buy the cookies at Khan Market or East Patel Nagar. You can also order online on their website here.
