As this book goes to press, we learn that the High Street Phoenix location of China Town by Noodle Bar in Lower Parel is under renovation. The Khar location continues to "Wok it Up" much to the delight of those who appreciate their tasty VFM fare (please don't go expecting authentic flavours). Pre-select your vegetables, meats, noodles, rice and sauces and then watch with wonder as chefs toss up your sizzling meal with panache. These contemporary and casual restaurants in mahogany, cream-and-black hues have decorations and upholstery inspired by Chinese calligraphy. From Tom Kha Gai to Tom Yam Goong, a wide selection of soups awaits (including the usual suspects like Veg Sweet Corn Soup and Chicken Hot and Sour). Noodles pop up in soups, starters and even sizzlers, taking on many tasty avatars. They are stretched, tossed, pan-fried and served as Hakka, Sichuan, Pad Thai, with Mixed Meat, as Chinese Chop Suey or even American Chop Suey if you prefer. Great choices in rice (too) from Pineapple 'n' Chilli Fried to Moon Fan, San-Am and Peking. Many dishes are priced at Rs. 350 or less. P.S. Seafood fans please call ahead to avoid disappointment. Many of the seafood specialities have been discontinued.
