Recently, this restaurant held a pop-up shop at The Leela Palace in Delhi and Gurgaon to showcase an experience of chef Tej B Saru Mgr’s delicious food offerings at China XO, The Leela Palace Chennai.
The menu is extensive, and the starters include various choices ranging from lamb, seafood, or lamb to pork and even vegetarian options. We chose Sichuan Chilli Chicken with peppercorn with lantern chilies, and green onion was an obvious winner.
For the main course, We tried a dish of incredibly delicious Chilli Lobster, served with steamed man tau buns and Wok Fried Garlic Flavored Seasonal Greens. It will surely make even the most staunch non-vegetarians love the comforts of a tasty vegetarian dish. In terms of comfort, their Prawns served with a butter-garlic sauce are the kind of dish that no seafood lover would resist.
