Take an amazing culinary journey from Tokyo to Bali via Sichuan and Yangon without stepping out of Delhi. Introducing you to Wai Wai presents Asian Hawkers Market, a first-of-its-kind celebration of Asian cuisine from across the Far East and South-East Asia, being organised from October 23-25, 2015, at the city’s busiest food and retail destination – Select Citywalk, Saket.
We reached the venue on the first day itself and were amongst first few to start the tasting! Most of the famous restaurants were participating such as, the multi-award-winning Neung Roi (Radisson Blu Plaza, NH8), Royal China, Mamagoto, Guppy by ai and Pan Asian (Sheraton New Delhi) as well as the ever-popular Jade (The Claridges), dimsumbros, Asia 7 and En, the reinvented Sampan, and newcomers such as Yum Yum Cha (the offshoot of the trend-setting Yum Yum Tree), Chi Ni (Dusit Devarana), The Fatty Bao, Wow Momo and Chi: The Asian Cookhouse.
The concept is curated and initiated by — Siddharth ‘Sid’ Mathur, Director & Head of Food of the phenomenally successful Social and Food Consultant for My Square, Select Citywalk’s food court; Atul Sikand, creator and curator of Facebook’s busiest Indian recipe-sharing group, Sikandalous Cuisine; Tanveer Kwatra, Executive Chef, Le Meridien Gurgaon; and acclaimed restaurant critic and food blogger Sourish Bhattacharyya.
We took a tour of the market to decide which stall to attack first J Started off with Rice rolls in banana leaf from Mamagoto. It was delicious ! Then we moved on to wow momos, they have a variety of momos from fried too steamed. We tasted lip smacking schezwan sauce fried momos with chicken & Cheese filling. They were too good !
Menu at The Fatty Bao was minimalistic, we tried Cottage Cheese Bao which moderately spiced and tasted nice.
Weather became hot during the day and coolers from YumYumCha saved us from the scorching heat. We tried Thai Orange Basil Cooler which was refreshing!
Tasted Spicy Dimsums from Chi, which were absolute delight and light … In the last we had a hearty Thai Gren Curry with sticky rice from Pan Asian. We also tried Cucumber Kafir Lime drink, which was something new yet refreshing ! We called it a day with a mouthful of Coconut Layered Milk Cake from Sampan.
