You know noodle is my favorite food, and I could live on it every day. Last Friday, I had this wonderful evening with my friends Mr Shri and Husein and other media people at Panash, an oriental restaurant in Four Points by Sheraton, Nagar Road, Pune.
Oodles of Noodles is an extended celebration of Chinese New Year at Four Points by Sheraton. The restaurant offers an array of freshly made noodles with your choice of toppings and sauce.
You can customize your own dish. First pick the type of noodles you want for your dish, then select vegetable to go with it. You can have beansprout, mushroom, bokchoy, water chestnuts, snow peas, etc. For proteins, you can pick prawn, pork, beef, chicken, fish and squids. There are many choices of sauce like Chilli Bean, Hot Garlic, Black Bean sauce, or even curry sauce like Panang curry and Masaman Curry, to go with the dish.
Executive Chef Sanjay Mitra demonstrated the art of making handmade noodles, and I got to try my hand on it. It was really fun. I think I will try it at home sometimes. Check out the video of noodle making at MrShri’s instagram here, it’s the coolest you must see.
Chef Mitra also joined us at the table and took us through the stories behind the art of making noodle and other dishes that were served that night.
For starters, we had Salmon Sushi and vegetarian Sushi. I thought Salmon Sushi was awesome, and asparagus sushi was alright. Chicken Dim Sum was really light and delicious. For vegetarian version, the filling was very fresh and full of flavor.
I also had vegetable soup which was very comforting.
For main course, we get to be creative with our dishes. Here are what our dishes looked like…
The restaurant also offered us several special dishes like Lotus Leaf Chicken, Mapo Doufu with Vegetable, Prawn Butter Chili Oyster and stir fried vegetable with glass noodle. Everything was different and delicious.
For dessert, we had these pan seared apple and ice cream which was a perfect way to wrap up the night. It was delightful.
I had a great time at Panash, Four Points by Sharathon. The food was excellent, and they has a very exciting menu. Can I tell you something? Chef Mitra told us he had Deep Fried Ice-cream on the menu! Yes! I think you should go check it out.
