Chinese Mirch on the Web

Just to let you know that one of my favourite restaurants, Chinese Mirch, finally has an online menu (or has always had it and I only now discovered it) which makes it so much easier to order from home. Hope you are lucky enough to live in the delivery zone so you can enjoy sweet corn vegetable soup, fried baby corn, chili garlic noodles and chili paneer in your pyjamas! A glass of ice-cold lychee juice would be perfect, if handy.

Hey Lulu,

You should tell people about Indian Chinese food. So may people don't know what it is. Hope you enjoyed your meal. It sounds fabulous!

i agree with anonymous.indian chinese,i believe,is quite different from chinese chinese.a friend of mine recently returned from china.he is a nonveg and i thought he would have no problem.on the contrary.he just couldn't eat chinese chinese food!.my experience has been that chinese veg food is the same everywhere.though i haven't been to china!
and by the way we also get piping hot indian chinese food home-delivered over a phone call.haven't tried the sms/internet route so far though.

Indian Chinese is simply Chinese cuisine (noodles, grilled meats, fish, vegetables etc) with Chinese and Indian spices. I read online that when the Hakka Chinese immigrated to India in the early 1900s, they liberally used Indian spices to their cooking and thus was born this yummy kind of food that most Indians love so much. It's different from Indian food but spicy enough to appeal to our need for heat!

yeah, i've heard the same. many of my friends have told me that traveling in china will be quite painful for me as nothing, literally nothing, is pure vegetarian. even the rice is cooked in beef broth. yikes!

lulu, your post reminded me of this tiny hole-in-the-wall place in bandra called 'jimmy's kitchen' from where we used to order take out quite a lot! it was not just indian chinese, i suspect it was east-indian indian chinese and though i might not like the food now, then we used to love it then. i realize how sanitized my eating habits have become now!!

Oui, je suis indienne.

I am yet to try Grand Sichuan, but it's definitely on my list, Richard.

I also know their menu by heart but I think that seeing the menu is a nice way to try dishes you don't normally order.
I'll miss you this weekend but we have to meet up the following weekend if you're back in town.
Miss you!
PS - Can't remember the name but I heard about an Indian Chinese place in Sunnyvale. Ask the desi engineers on your team :)

When we spent 2 weeks in China it was a little difficult to get pure vegetarian meals. But if you have a good translator or say you're Buddhist, most places will accommodate. The only exception was in Hong Kong, where we found an amazing vegetarian restaurant and vegetarian cuisine overall is more accepted.
