Luncheon With A View
Ming Yang is a beautifully planned fine-dining restaurant that overlooks the Arabian Sea. In an attempt to give an authentic Chinese vibe, there's a majestic metallic dragon figurine placed right in the middle of the restaurant. Both, the stunning sea-view and the dragon are hard to miss. Taj is known to treat its guests like royalty and we certainly weren't disappointed. The staff greeted us with warm smiles and despite having to cater to multiple guests, they ensured that we were served well.
Our order was rather extensive including: Kenya Beans with Cha Choy and Dry Red Chilli, House Special Spring Roll, Vegetable and Coriander Dim Sum, Pan Fried Vegetable Noodles, Kung Pao Potato and a special Cottage Cheese preparation which wasn't mentioned in the menu.
As a child, I hated green vegetables and would do anything to avoid eating it. However, if I had tasted the Kenya Bean preparation back then, I probably would've fallen in love with idea of having green veggies with every meal! The Kenya Beans is a crunchy, tangy appetizer that is an absolute must-have. It has the perfect balance of sweet and sour taste and beautifully blends the flavours of soy sauce and red chilies. Up next, the crispy House Special Spring roll, loaded with anything but green vegetables. This preparation is light yet sumptuous and is filled with the goodness of sweet potato, taro (similar to potato), glass noodles and carrots.
The Dim Sum was chewy and tasted garden fresh because of the strong flavour of coriander. I'd urge you to try a different Dim Sum preparation as this was just palatable.
The Pan Fried Noodles is a meal by itself with its thick gravy and generous toppings of green vegetables (Pak Choi, White Onions, Snow Peas). Kung Pao potato, with its zesty flavour and soft texture, perfectly complements the otherwise bland Noodles. As for the cottage cheese preparation, it was very mildly spiced, smooth and tasty enough to be had as an appetizer.
After our divine meal, the restaurant manager, Trishla Desai, went a step further and served us hot Chinese Tea which marked the perfect end to our meal. But it didn't stop there - the staff had arranged for a lovely chocolate mousse cake (as we were celebrating a birthday) which melted in the mouth. I certainly died and went to chocolate heaven after taking the first bite.
Did our luncheon end there? Well, let's just say that a Chinese meal is incomplete without a cookie telling you your fortune. Fortune cookies galore!
