Hunan in Kormangala, 5th Block is one of the oldest and most famous restaurants in Bangalore for Pan Asian food. But it was our first time visiting Hunan on the occasion of the unveiling of their new menu which features some authentic Chinese & Cantonese food. But the star point goes to them, for coming up with an array of dishes which are specifically for people intolerant of gluten. 

Yes, Hunan has come up with dishes like Asian style stuffed tofu with chicken, raw mango chili fish, Tofu summer rolls and much more in their Gluten Free menu. We tried some of the gluten free dishes and the dishes from the new menu and we can say that we are pretty happy with the new menu.

This time, I (Priyanjana) will be giving you guys the walk through, so let me take you through the dishes we tried.

The Sweet and sour tofu soup with crab-meat was what we started our dinner with. A delicately balanced sweet and sour soup with mild flavors of crab and small cubes of tofu. But, I think that it could have been just a tad bit sweeter. 

The Thai seafood with rice vermicelli salad was honestly one of the best salads I have had in a long time. The sharp spice cutting through the mild seafood flavors and sourness was perfectly complimented with the rice vermicelli and poached prawns. 

The Asian flavor chicken salad is something I didn’t like much, but if you think of authentic Chinese flavor, this would be the correct definition. Slightly bland for us Indians, but the slightly sweet and crunchy salad was loved by many. 

Truffle scented edamame dumpling stands true to its name. The flavor of truffle is very faint though. This dumpling is served on a bed of soy sauce and the filling has a few chunks of edamame. It was quite refreshing as compared to finely pasted edamame. 

The Crunchy wonton ribbon prawns were one of the best dishes of the night. Flavorful with that crunchy element and the lovely flavors of the sauce. Vegetable cocktail rolls were nicely done crisp rolls, which had a flavorful filling. A delight for the vegetarians. The Salt and pepper silken tofu is another thing the vegetarians would love. Soft, silky tofu tossed in pepper and salt tasted very well indeed.

Asian style stuffed tofu with chicken, a dish from the gluten free menu looked interesting and tasted pretty good. The only thing is that the chicken was a little stiff compared to the silky tofu, so the contradiction made it a little confusing to the palette. It would be better with soft chicken filling. Taste wise it was really quite good.

The Chicken fatty bao was a soft bao and had a nice crunch because of the veggies. Some micro greens lent a freshness which added to the experience. 

Now the Sugarcane skewered chicken was one item I think needs a bit of improvement. The chicken was properly done on the outside with the smoky flavor but the inner layer, the layer on the skewer was a little chalky with the seasoning.

The Guandong chicken was an interesting dish with lots of textures lent by the water chestnut, peanut and mushroom along with the chicken in a mild brown sauce. The Raw Mango chilli fish was an interesting dish with the mild spicy flavor and the fresh tanginess of the raw mango. I would have loved if the flavor of the raw mango was more prominent. 

The Vegan Ham Fried Rice with Pickled Leafy was wonderfully flavoured fried rice with soya bean chunks. Perfect accompaniment for the Guandong chicken. Another Praise worthy dish was the chicken stew with the black wood ear mushroom, this is served with sticky rice and is a lovely dish to have.

The desserts were really very good. The Red velvet cake was nice and soft and had the perfect texture. The meringue nest with lemon curd was perfect to end the feast. Refreshing and very light, this dessert was the best out of the two. 

So, that's all from our side. It is good to know that a restaurant has a dedicated Gluten free menu in Bangalore now. 

Do let us know your thoughts on the same!
