SIMPLE FOOD @ JIMMY’S KITCHEN (AJC BOSE ROAD)!May 30, 2013
Rating: 3 out of 5
Jimmy’s Kitchen evokes mixed reactions amongst people. Yet it is still a name to reckon with for authentic Chinese delicacies. With regards to their décor, it hasn’t undergone any change and remains much the same. The menu is very commonplace with no new items. Yet the food is delicious and scrumptious. The service is as usual quick and efficient; you do not have to wait too long for your food.
Their signature dish, which is the wonderfully prepared cha shao or roast pork, is still the most sought after dish from this old establishment. The dish is wonderfully made with the meat mixed in the right amount of spices and salt. The meat pieces are tender and juicy with the very expecting glossy and shiny red glaze on the outside. The roast pork is not only soft and succulent but sweet as well. The chicken preparations are amazing too. At times, the chicken dishes might prove to be too spicy for those expecting authentic Chinese fare that is non-spicy. Nevertheless, some of their chicken dishes that need mentioning in this review are Chilli chicken (dry), Honey chicken, and Chicken Chowmein. Apparently, their lemon chicken is well prepared and uses the right amount of lemon pieces though I have not tried it. Similarly, the noodle soup is still prepared in the same old manner with an adequate amount of vegetables, meat and noodles. The dish is light and delightfully tasty and enough for a person’s meal!
The major drawback here is that the food can be quite expensive here, considering the food quality (certain dishes might prove to be too greasy) and quantity and a meal can set you back Rs.450 a head or more. Nevertheless, the food is still considered by many loyalists to be the best and authentic in the whole of Kolkata (not my sentiments, though it is pretty decent fare).
