A local restaurant in Sugar Land, Alings serves Chinese-Indian cuisine and is quite popular amongst Chinese, Indians, and people of other ethnicities alike. A family0owned business since 2010, Alings is led by Chef Gary Yan who is of Chinese descent, but was raised in Pune, India, and is fluent in both Hindi and Mandarin!
Chinese-Indian cuisine, also known as “Chindian,” is quite distinct as it adapts Chinese seasoning and cooking techniques to Indian tastes. In the 1940s, a large number of Chinese immigrated to India and integrated their cooking techniques and ingredients to the cuisine of Indian cultures. Alings' dishes encapsulate this cultural blend using Indian ingredients, which are sautéed in a wok and cooked in Aling’s special sauces. Lots of fresh cilantro, ginger, garlic, onion, and chilies create an intense flavor!
