Days of My China Dragon

Author: Chandrahas Choudhury (Trinity 2000)

Publisher: Simon & Schuster India

The Bombay restaurateur Jigar Pala has three, great, overlapping passions: food, people and banter. And he shakes and stirs them to great effect in his hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurant, The China Dragon, set up with great ambitions on the foundation of a place previously set up by his father. Join Jigar as he shows you the arts of fried rice ("Self-fried rice is the right and duty of every human being") and Dragon Chicken, and portrays and narrates the stories of customers, waiters, chefs, ghosts and dragons (not to mention himself). A behind-the-scenes look at Bombay, the life of the small entrepreneur, and the restaurant business, sure to send you running to your local Chinese.
