Faridabad, the sleepy suburb of Delhi has mainly been known as an Industrial hub, but thanks to a growing cosmopolitan populace, new places have opened up there. I was recently invited to Radisson Blu, Faridabad at their newly opened pan-Asian restaurant, House of Soy.

Chef Avanish Jain leads the team here and brings with him decades of experience and expertise in Asian cuisine. The menu has his fine dishes clearly show that. Over an afternoon of spectacular food and even better conversation, I sampled many, many dishes at this restaurant and each one was superb.

The dimsums were exceptional, to say the least. Clean flavours, a hallmark of Asian food (outside of India though), seems like a philosophy here and each dish has that in spades. The sui mai was flavourful and fresh and had a balance that great food has.

The Som Tam salad was great too and as Chef Avanish told us it was made of simple ingredients pounded together like it is done in Thailand.

Even though I can be a fussy non- vegetarian eater, I gorged upon the mapo tofu. A highlight at the restaurant it is wonderful in the spicy chilli and bean sauce, which contrasts it textually as well.

The pad thai was one of my favourite dishes here and the thin egg wrap was a really authentic touch too. You know a well travelled chef when you see these flourishes on the menu.

The highlight for me, as I have such a sweet tooth, was hte coconut jaggery ice cream. The coconut ice cream just ticks all the ice cream boxes. Creamy, rich, luscious with the right amount of “coconut bits” in the mixture, it was one of the best desserts I have had.

One of the better Pan Asian restaurants in Delhi – NCR, Hous of Soy has food with punchy flavours as well as clean ones – but you will not find a dish that is not interesting or flavoursome. Try it as soon as you can.
