Jasmint JLT, A taste of China in Dubai

China's food scene is as interesting and varied as the country itself. While chinese food is grossly underrated. All that people think of when you say chinese cuisine is Wantons and noodles. Well, Jasmint restaurant yearns to change that perception by offering a very varied menu of some delicious offering from all regions of China.

A very simply yet cozy setting by the artificial lake offering a fantastic gamut of tantalizing chinese fare. We visited with a group of friends last month when the weather was still very pleasant and had an enjoyable time.

Below are some of the dishes we tried.

Chicken celery Spicy dumplings - 
Prawn jumbo dumplings - 
Miso soup  
Panna Pineapple salad 
Sichuan Wonton  
Tender tofu grill 
Karwa-Kapo mushroom grill

Sichuan spicy Splash pot 
Ripple jelly bowl
