GOA, INDIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/10/14 -- What was once considered a snack for rural farmers taking respite in teahouses is now a staple of Cantonese cuisine. Today, dim sum, which translates to "touch the heart," is known around the world, from five-star restaurants to family-owned street stalls, tempting diners with a variety of steamed buns and pan-fried dumplings. To celebrate this culinary delight, Wan Hao restaurant at the Goa Marriott Resort & Spa is hosting the Dim Sum Food Festival.
Held during dinner hours from July 12th through the 27th, the festival at this Goa hotel's Chinese restaurant will offer respite from the cold, wet monsoon season. Diners can select from a la carte offerings that include Shaomai (small steamed buns with pork, prawns or both), Jiaozi (ground meat or vegetable dumplings), Shanghai Steamed Buns (dumplings filled with meat, usually pork, or seafood), the popular Char Siu Baau (barbecued pork-filled buns), Mantou (steamed buns with no filling) and a selection of pan-fried dumplings stuffed with delicately cooked chicken, seafood or vegetables. As the tradition in the ancient teahouses, dim sum is accompanied by hot tea, which is said to aid in digestion.
Guests of this Panaji hotel who want to explore Cantonese cuisine beyond dim sum can return to Wan Hao for another meal to sample a variety of Pan-Asian dishes in an elegant setting, featuring a traditional courtyard and private booths. Menu highlights include:
Gong bao mushrooms: Stir-fried shitake and button mushroom with cashew nuts
Crispy chilli fish: Tossed with fresh chilli, star anise and sweet soya sauce
Phad makhue yao horrapa: Wok-fried eggplant tossed in yellow beans, chilli garlic and sweet basil sauce
