If you love dimsums, this is the place for you, if you don’t love dimsums, visit Dimcha and you will fall in love with them. This place is just perfect for not just dimsum lovers but also anyone who craves authentic Pan-Asian Cuisine.
I recently visited this cozy and comfortable looking place situated in Epicuria, Nehru Place.
The evening began with Kiwi Mint Cooler and Gari & Lemon Grass Cooler, these mocktails alone will make you go back to the place again and again, they were simply amazing. I loved them both equally.
Next we tried two varieties of soups Khao-Suey Soup and Baa Mee Tom, both were delectable. Very filling yet light. The texture, the taste, everything was just perfect. Must try.
Next was Raw Papaya Salad, and I have to admit it was one of the best salads I have eaten in the recent time. Crunchy, light, juicy and full of taste, perfect adjectives to describe the salad.
It was now the turn for trying out dimsums, and even before eating one falls in love with the way they are presented, so colourful and vibrant. Green, Yellow, Red, amazing colours and awesome taste. I tried Chilli Garlic Dumpling, Kenya Bean Dumpling, Hoisin Chicken Dumpling and Spicy Prawn Dumpling, all of them were great, but the Prawn dumpling became my favourite.
Now for the most amazing thing I ever tasted, it was the Red Turnip cake, now for me, I have never even tasted turnip in my life and somehow always disliked it without eating, but the Red Turnip Cake at Dimcha, made me a fan of its. I am simply, truly and madly in love with the dish. It was mindblowing, and one cannot just make out that you having Turnip. I can go back to this place again and again just to eat this red Turnip Cake.
Next we tried some Crispy Tofu Crushed Black pepper, the taste was just awesome, it was followed by French Bean in Black Bean Sauce, once again I not bean lover and yet this tasted just awesome and after trying one bean reluctantly, I had to take a generous serving for myself. Diced Chicken in Black Bean Sauce ad Steamed Fish in Banana leaf were the next and by now all I can say is that nothing can go wrong at this place, nothing at all. The chickens, the fish, both were amazing. I felt too full relishing all this food, that I had no place to try their main course and desserts, but I am definitely going back there very soon and try out whatever is left, from the menu.
Between the culinary experiences, I also got a chance to enjoy a brief master class by the chef where he shared his recipe of the amazing Raw Papaya Salad and some other delicacies too.
Overall I rate this place a generous 4.5 and highly recommend all my readers to visit it soon for a great gastronomic experience.
