Situated at the beginning of Candolim's Holiday Street, Taste of China serves some authentic, tasty food from the Orient, from China, Thailand, Indonesia, Malayasia, Singapore, etc., in an alfresco setting. Of course, everything is painted crimson, so you know this is the real Chinese. The menu is quite elaborate with starters, soups, main courses, vegetarian, pork, beef, chicken, duck, seafood, rice and noodles, with lots of different options. For vegetarian starters we suggest the Shanghai Chilli Paneer or Thai Chilly Potatoes, both spicy stir fries, and in soups you could have the Tom Yum Phak, a spicy Thai soup with lemon grass and galangal - very herbal Thai taste. There's lots more, specially for the carnivores, like Pork Spare Ribs. For starters you could have the Prawn Tempura, batter coated fried prawns or the Golden Sand Prawns, or the Crispy Duck - fried slivers of duck. For a proper meal, try the Chef's Special Rice, which is veg, and combine it with the fragrant Pork Malaka Sauce, flour-coated fried pork in spicy Malayasian curry. Or Chicken Rendang Curry, from Indonesia. Vegetarians can opt for the veg Thai Green Curry, Kaeng Kheow Wanchie or red curry, Kaeng Phad Phak, all quite delicious, and faintly reminiscent of South Indian curries. The portions are sumptuous, and the prices quite reasonable.
