Last weekend my family and I decided to have our dinner from China Town restaurant which is located at F-8/1 in Islamabad. We have tried their food a few times before and always find it delectable. This time we decided to order China Town special soup, , drumsticks, vegetable fried rice, fish in black bean sauce and chicken chili in oyster sauce.
First of all the China Town special soup was served with the crackers. I found it simply delicious. Like the name indicates, it really is their specialty with prawns, chicken, vegetables and mushrooms in it. The smell was so heavenly that I couldn’t stop myself from taking it for a second time. One thing which I found quite praiseworthy is that the soup was served in a large quantity which is quite unlikely as compare to some of the other restaurants, which charge a lot of money with a small serving. Furthermore, the soup was perfect blend of spices. I didn’t find it too spicy which is good for those of you who don’t like too much spicy food. However, if you love spicy food like me then you can put extra spices and soy sauce and vinegar which was served with the soup. I found it quite yummilicious. However, I want to point out that this type of soup can mostly be enjoyed by those who love seafood. So if you are a seafood lover like me, you are definitely going to love it.
Next item which was served were the drumsticks. The size of the drumsticks was quite small but the taste was so awesome that you can instantly forget about the size issue after taking the first bite. With the drumsticks was served a very yummy spicy kind of sauce with lots of chilies in it which was complementing the taste of the drumsticks.
After we were done with the drumsticks, vegetable fried rice along with fish in black bean sauce and chicken chili in oyster sauce were served. To be very honest I didn’t enjoy the fish in black bean sauce much, as it was too salty for my taste but if you have strong taste buds you are definitely going to love it. Though the sauce may be salty the fish itself was well cooked and was quite delicious. The vegetable fired rice too was well cooked and was quite delicious when served with these curries.
I loved the chicken in oyster sauce. The chicken was cooked to perfection and the sauce was sweet and spicy just the way I like it and it tasted perfect with the combination of rice.
My experience there was great and I will definitely recommend this place to you guys. The quality and quantity of food is highly commendable and best part is that you can eat all these things in a very reasonable price.
