The fan fare for Asian cuisine in India is no stranger to us. From the streets to high-rise buildings with lavish settings, you would find a bowl of hakka noodles in both the places. Although Korean food and culture has started gaining prominence in the last few years, it is the Chinese fare that never gets old. So much so, that we have devised our own form of Indianised Chinese too, including dishes like manchurian which didn’t really exist in the original cuisine. Mira Kapoor shares the love for this fare too. The young lady, who has turned into a mom-preneur after marriage, is quite active on social media and keeps updating her followers with her tid-bits and nibbles from the day. 

From her overstuffed snack bags to her girl’s trip to Dubai, we spotted Mira enjoying delicacies like no one else. She even enjoyed a high tea at the Burj Khalifa. This Saturday, Mira Kapoor was dining at a fancy Asian restaurant in Mumbai and we are drooling. She posted a picture of her spread on her Instagram stories and there were dimsums and some desserts, covered in thick sauce. There were scoops of vanilla ice cream along with banana toffee fritters, which seemed very tempting to us.

She captioned the picture saying, “Royal China is heaven”. Did you know that Royal China is one of the few Chinese restaurants that opened up this fare to the fine-dining circuit? Started in the year 2004, Neville Vazifdar is the owner of this restaurant chain that is spread across cities like Mumbai, Delhi as well as Pune. Vazifdar began the operations with a single restaurant in Mumbai, taking inspiration from his father, who was the architect of several food and beverage spaces in Mumbai. Royal China is well-known for their range of authentic dimsums and a plethora of Asian desserts.
