Wholesome Lunch at Emperor’s Court, Renaissance Hotel

Renaissance Mumbai Review

Food bloggers in Mumbai are spoilt for choice. I must say. Especially when it comes to Chinese food. I was at Renaissance Mumbai hotel a few days back and I was told that Emperor’s Court- the hotel’s Chinese restaurant now served lunches as well. What caught my eye was that the lunches were reasonably priced! Starting from 1500 INR you could order unlimited portions of appetizer, soup, main course and the dessert.

Renaissance Mumbai Review Food Bloggers In Mumbai Food ReviewI try any cuisine or a dish, flavour is what’s most important to me. I’m not really finicky about novelty or presentation. My food should taste good and meet my expectations simple funda, aye?

Before trying out the clay pot meal my expectations were simple- a chinese meal with an enriched experience at one of my favourite hotels.

They have  five options- vegetable, chicken, sea food, pork and lamb. I was obviously not going to pick the vegetable one. But it took me some time to decide which non-vegetarian clay pot should I go for.

Still thinking..

I was impressed the moment I had the starters- the vegetable spring rolls. Crispy and a flavour that I’ve encountered anywhere else. I would have taken a second helping- but knowing that I have a huge meal ahead, I stopped myself.

That’s my ‘ummmm this is too good’face!

I tried two clay pots- Sea food & Pork while my friends tried the vegetable one (yes, the poor souls are vegetarians)

The starters for all clay pots are similar- the vegetable spring rolls. Depending on your choice of meal- your soup is served

The main course is served in clay pots. I was told that these clay pots are imported specially for restaurant from China. The clay pots are pretty and having your meal out of a Chinese clay pot is an experience in itself. Indian Beauty Food blogger in Mumbai India Best Food Blogger Restaurant hotel review

Chinese Sea Food Clay Pot: Braised Prawns, Squid, exotic vegetables and steam rice

The pork clay pot soft and tender. Full of flavour and a little sweet. I felt it could be a tad less sweet. The sea food clay pot was exceptionally well. If you love prawns, you should definitely go for it!

The vegetables are cooked to perfection and complements the flavours of the meat and the sea food. The steam rice may feel dry to some but for me the gravy in the clay pot was enough. A broth is served in case the rice feels rice. As I loved my clay pots- I didn’t need the broth.

The portions are filling and if you have HUGE appetite you may go for a second helping of the main course.

Apart from the food, what made the lunch more special was the beautiful view of the Powai Lake!

By the time I finished my main course- I had barely any room for the desserts. But as they say, no matter how full you are, you always have space for dessert. Also, have an exceptionally weak sweet- tooth doesn’t help. I just cannot resist dessert. I have zero resistance powers.

Chocolate Roll, Mango Sago, Vanilla Ice-cream with fruits

The Chocolate roll was, well made of chocolate in the inside and the chocolate dip was a plus point. The mango sago was just about okay. I quite liked the vanilla ice-cream. The taste was rich and flavoursome. And the fruits- errm I like to have my ice-cream without any disruptions.

Overall the meal was fulfilling and satisfying. Here’s my score card.
