Vintage Asia has completed a year and it’s time for celebration. The Pan-Asian restaurant in JW Marriott Kolkata is ready with a new menu with at least 40 per cent new dishes alongside some popular signature dishes like Thai Green Curry and Spiced Caramelised Pork Belly.
“Our menu has been a collection of very authentic dishes from China and Thailand. We have tried to retain 60 per cent of those dishes and introduced new ones that have a modern element to it. By modern we mean using Western styles of presentation and for some dishes even the cooking technique, while keeping the Oriental flavours intact,” said Tan Kwang Aik, Oriental chef, Vintage Asia, JW Marriott Kolkata.
Following guest feedback for the past one year, the menu has been designed with more dishes from the Sichuan and Hunan regions. “Calcuttans seem to love Sichuan food because of its spicy, strong flavours. For Cantonese food, which is a little bland and mild in its range of flavours, we have tried to make the flavours a bit stronger,” said the chef.
