For me it's R-City Mall, Ghatkopar. Why??? Click here and here and here to know. Last weekend I got one more reason, Mainland China.
Mainland China is hosting an Asian Festival featuring the best dishes from popular Asian cuisines. There are selected dishes on the Asian Festival menu so you wont get lost. Soups, Appetizers, Main Course and Desserts each categories have good options for both veg and non-veg. They also have their country flags besides the dish so that you know which country you are travelling to gastronomically.
As always we started with mock-tails followed by Tom Yum Soup. I Love this soup. Prefer this one over any other oriental or Asian soup. It's a naughty soup I say. It makes you dance to it tunes, literally. Tangy, spicy & hint of sweetness all-in-one. But this one here at Mainland China was little oily and looked like a dal fry rather than a soup. The flavors were banging heads, not quite the way I like.

How could we have not ordered Dim-sums from the regular Mainland China Menu? So we did. And was not disappointed at all. We were four and had ordered for 6 pieces, we were left wanting for more. The delicate, gently spiced and silk textured beauties where a bundle of joy to feast on. I wanted to repeat the dish but then would have lost on trying something else hence resisted the temptation.

For the main course we had the traditional Green Thai Curry-Veg accompanied with steam rice. We also had Indonesian Noodles made out of wheat and were generously spiced with hot chilies. This dish has sprouts in it so the sprout balance the hotness of the spices and gives a flavored morsel in your mouth.
The dish is spicy so make sure you have your drinks refilled.

Ice-Cream rolls vanished in few seconds and then I had the feeling that deserts should last for more time on the plate. I mean deserts, are the best way to say goodbye to a lovely evening so we should linger on them for more time. So we ordered one more desert this was Traditional Sponge Cake with a very very very sweet Toffee Sauce. The cake was perfect low-sweet and was bouncy just a way sponge should bounce.

The Toffee sauce is a great way to balance individual sweet-ness liking of a cake thus went I left the warm ambiance of Mainland China, I indeed had a feeling of completing a wonderful tour-de-Asia.
