China Ming Featured Review by Bilal Khan
There are many Chinese restaurants in Karachi which have gained popularity in a short period of time. Some of them are quiet old and some are freshly born. Amongst the decade old restaurants prevailing in Karachi, China Ming is amongst the premium Chinese cuisine based restaurants that has stood the test of time. The success of each restaurant boils down to only one bottom line: Quality of food. China Ming with the help of adequate staff members and dedicated chefs have allowed it to become one of the oldest and extravagant Chinese restaurants in town.
Mr. Mohammad Nasir Sheikh, the proud owner of China Ming shared his views regarding the maturity of culinary expertise prevailing in the market with team FCPK. Mr. Sheikh started his career in the culinary world in the year 1994 where he worked as a chef in the well renowned hotel, Pearl Continental (P.C) Karachi. He was passionate about food since the start of his career and that passion led him to explore and experiment with the different ingredients and the importance of adding the right ingredients at the right time. But his journey did not stop there. Nasir Sheikh always yearned of making people happy by enchanting customers with his crafted cuisines, and it was then he made up his mind to start a restaurant of his own by the name of China Ming; a Chinese restaurant as he was an expert in cooking Chinese food. It has been nine years since this restaurant came into being, and since then the restaurant has received bountiful appreciations of many.
As said by the owner himself, China Ming has a bright future just because it follows the simple statistics of making mouth-watering cuisines at extremely affordable prices that caters to all classes of customers.
Being a bunch of food enthusiasts always on a hunt of diversified gastronomical experience team @FCPK Pakistan’s premier restaurant guide, decided to place an order. Craving for the fresh and well cooked aroma of authentic Chinese food, the order was placed at 1 p.m and the delivery was made within the specified time given by China Ming to us. The food arrived piping hot which is always a good sign and integrates more towards the flavour of food. The packing was very moderate but not a single bit of the food was pouring out from it. Amongst the long list of cuisines on the menu, we ordered Cheesy Rolls, Thai Prawn Chili Dry, Yung Chu Fried Rice & Kung Pao Chicken.
With the whole table set with the scrumptious items ordered from their elaborate menu, we decided to dig in without further delay. First in the list were Cheesy rolls; soft, yummy with finger licking hot cheese inside, it made perfect sense how the cheesy rolls got finished in an instant. Then we set our eyes on the Yung Chu Fried Rice which was perfectly well cooked, not a hint of unsavoury, added Thai Prawn Chili dry on top which made it absolutely irresistible. The rice was steamy fresh and the prawn chili dry was a bit spicy, but nonetheless, it made perfect combination; giving the taste buds something unexpected yet exciting to experience. And last but not the least; the Kung Pao Chicken was exquisitely made giving that authentic feel of pure Chinese food that everyone looks out for.
Over all, the whole team really enjoyed the gratifying taste of China Ming, although some of the food we ordered was a bit spicy but amongst the most favourable dishes was the Cheesy Rolls and the Kung Pao Chicken. China Ming has worked hard to deliver some of the best Chinese cuisines and over the past years it has achieved in doing so.
