Watchya Yumcha

One of the perks of being a food blogger is getting front row access to a Masterchef cooking session with Taj Krishna’s resident masterchef himself – Hung Fong Ng aka Chef Tony.IMG_5566An invaluable part of Golden Dragon – Hyderabad’s top Chinese fine-dining restaurant – for over a decade now, Chef Tony brings to the table authentic Chinese cuisine he learnt and mastered in Hong Kong, his hometown. FotorCreated-1And he’s sharing that expertise with patrons of Golden Dragon’s special yumcha lunch sessions on Sundays.

And if you thought that amazing menu and bubbly was the highlight of a leisurely Sunday lunch, there’s more. Chef Tony will be demonstrating the art of making dimsums and handpulled noodles right before your eyes. If you’re daring enough, you could even try your hands at it. Feel free to ask him a question or two about his technique of magically hand pulling thin strips of noodles from a single mass of dough, or how to roll and wrap those perfect dimsums. He might look the silent serious type, but he’s actually quite friendly and happy to share Asian cooking tips.
