Chinese Cuisine has become an obsession for every food lover in Delhi. You can almost find every dish in menu card at any Chinese restaurants in Delhi. These days’ people love to explore new restaurants and new cuisine. 

A Chinese restaurant is an establishment that serves Chinese food outside China. Some have distinctive styles, as with American Chinese cuisine and Canadian Chinese cuisine. The Eight Culinary cuisines of China are Anhui, Cantonese, Fujian, Hunan, Jiangsu, Shandong, Szechuan and Zhejiang Cuisines. Prominent styles of Chinese cuisine outside china include Singaporean, Malaysian, Indonesian, Indian and American, but there is Chinese cuisine wherever Chinese people are found. The staple food of Chinese cooking includes rice, noodles, vegetables and sauces.

Chinese cuisine is hugely popular in Delhi. It’s a combination of Punjabi and Chinese flavours. The main staple ingredient is the use of paneer, used as a meat substitute in Delhi. Because of religious barriers, pork and beef is not available at all. You can find little taste of Indian ingredients in food which garnished with coriander and cumin which are not as popular in china which known as chindian cuisine.

Some restaurants are all worth visiting. They received mostly high reviews for quality food, full and balanced flavors and portions, affordable prices and good service.

Berco’s, Saket
You can find Berco’s at 14 locations in Delhi/ NCR. Through which you can assume how much popular in Delhi and it’s not that much expensive. You can try noodles, thukpa, hot and sour soup, overall nice treat point for Chinese lovers.

Restaurant style sweet corn curry is tasty and lip smacking recipe which goes perfectly with Indian breads like paranthas or naans. I prepared this curry with gravy of tomatoes, onion and capsicum.
