Rickshaw at the Corinthia Palace Hotel in Attard is a guided, front-row tour of the enticing and tantalising tastes of the Asian continent. The subdued lighting, rich drapes, oriental decor and music carry you away as you forget the western world for a few hours and immerse yourself in an experience like no other. The staff and management with their impeccable uniforms seem to effortlessly float between the tables in perfect coordination as they pamper their patrons with exceptional service even on the busiest of evenings. Your charming host Memely coordinates everything with grace and panache, and is always happy to recommend new tastes from the menu for you to explore.
The menu is a very faithful representation of the variety of the Asian culinary palette. All the traditional favourites are there, but it’s worth digging deeper to discover the hidden gems from this fascinating land. The Rickshaw Fizz welcome drink with lychee syrup, plum saké and prosecco is the perfect concoction to start your evening, and is best paired with prawn crackers accompanied by sweet and spicy sauces. Next, explore a selection of starters from all over the continent before moving on to one of Rickshaw’s fantastic signature dishes. The Korean speciality of fresh scallops cooked tableside in a clay pot at 400 degrees comes highly recommended. And make sure you don’t miss dessert for a sweet farewell to the mystical east.
