The Great Wall, The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts, Mumbai
When we make memories, we remember the people we spent making these memories the most. It gives a sense of gratefulness for if these people were not present; these memories wouldn’t be as memorable as they are now.
The Leela has been one such companion, who has always been there to make days memorable; launch of the new menu at The Great Wall was one such opportunity.
(Honest confession – we didn’t make it to the main course. The appetizers were sooooo good! But we did have the dessert. #seperatedessertstomach)
What We Had:
Manchow Soup: If you are an avid lover of this soup and can have it in any shape and form, you are truly in for a treat. The Great Wall, by far, makes the best manchow soup you can treat yourself to. For the love of manchow soup, try it!
Onion Pancakes: When I think of onions, I think smelly strong vegetables who have rivers running down my face when they’re chopped and ruin all my chances of getting any “action” later. Were we in for a surprise with this one! Made with different types of finely chopped onions (white, spring, and red), these cakes were an absolute delight. You don’t need a side with them, they’re pretty much self-sufficient.
Bean Curd Sesame Toast: Unlike the usual sesame toast that we are used to eating, these were stuffed with tofu, rich in protein and high on flavour. Best eaten with a soya dip or some schezwan sauce, the accompaniments helped enhance the sesame toast!
Rock Corn: An all-time favourite from the Citrus Menu at The Leela, we were introduced to the Rock Corn when we celebrated the blog’s second anniversary there and Kriti and I simply could not resist relishing this. (And we ended up eating not one, but two portions)
Crème Caramel (Caramel Custard): This custard dessert is pure sin and it is worth every bite. The sugar syrup is enough to have with every scoop dug into the pudding. If you’ve got a weak spot for Caramel Custard, you should take a bite of this!
Chocolate Hazelnut Tart: Another favorite from the menu at The Leela, the chocolate hazelnut tart is sugar free, loaded with chocolate – hazelnuts – coffee and all things sinful.
And since our visit co incided with my birthday, The Leela gave us a large portion of the famous boozy chocolate cake that was oh so good! Moist, chocolatey and gooey this truly was heaven taken to a new level.
