MISU – The Chic Pan Asian Restaurant, St. Marks Road

MISU is the latest entrant to occupy the space of fine dine restaurants serving Pan-Asian cuisine. MISU shares space with The Open Box, another iconic restaurant. This new restaurant is going to curb your cravings for food thatโ€™s inspired by traditionally rich cuisines of China, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, and Japan.

I have always been in love with Asian food, the simple reason being its light on the tummy and mostly devoid of heavy fatty ingredients, so when I got a chance to visit MISU I was happy that my lunch is gonna look healthy! The ambience of the place is very Chinese-ish with wooden and glass theme dominating the presence, there is a massive picture of a lady that overlooks all the tables!!!

Tropical Iced Tea

While others enjoyed their Orange and Earl Grey Ice Tea, Vodka based cocktail with Earl Grey Tea and Orange extracts, I decided to sip on some Tropical Iced Tea which is a non-alcoholic refreshing beverage with tonnes of fresh Strawberries in it. PS: They do have a full bar.

Spicy Pomelo Salad

We started with the Thai Spicy clear soup, Tom Yum Soup which had lemon grass, galangal, kaffir lime leaves and lime juice. We had the prawn soup, It is available in Veg and Chicken versions as well. Then we had the Spicy Pomelo Salad, Pomelo here is a citrus fruit which is lesser known and looks like Orange when you break it open, fresh chilli and cashew nuts complete the preparation.

Rainbow Dumpling

Prawn Kung Pao, Rainbow and Moonshine Dumplings adorned our table to represent the appetisers section. Prawn Kung Pao was delightfully sweet and the hint of Soy sauce on every bite was pleasing, you can also order Chicken and Tofu here that will go well this sauce. We had an exotic dish that was served here called the Ikan Pepe, it is Indonesian grilled fish curried with fragrant ginger and chilli and then wrapped in banana leaf. A visit to Pan Asian restaurant isnโ€™t complete with a Sushi order and thatโ€™s when the vibrant Spicy Tofu Avocado Maki made its way onto our table which and it was well received by everyone.

Our main course was a hearty combination of Noodles, Rice with curry and the famous oriental meal in a bowl affair. Nasi Goreng Chicken was an instant hit for me, there were enough flavours from the sambal and sweet soy sauce mixed with garlic and shrimp paste. I would recommend you to order the Wok Fried Udon Noodle with Schezwan Peppercorn and Soy Sauce, the thick noodles you get have got the perfect texture and softness and along with crunchy bites of Schezwan pepper takes this dish to another level altogether.

Dessert was Singaporean Style Ice Cream Sandwich, the catch being that you get super soft sponge cake instead of biscuits or wafers. It enclosed the flavorful lemongrass ice cream and the combination is a must have here. The highlight of dessert course was the Chocolate Truffle, you will find few chilli seeds as the intention is to impart less heat and more spiciness that blends brilliantly with the gooey chocolate balls that are crunchy on the outside.

That was the end of our lunch and what a lovely place MISU turned out to be, everything that was served here was well received by everyone. This is not your regular Indo-Chinese affair, instead, a full-fledged Pan Asian restaurant where the authenticity of the dishes served is taken care of in the best possible manner. It goes without saying that the feeling of sharing the table with Mr Suresh Hinduja and Saransh Goila was easily one of the best and a learning curve for me.
