The Journey :
we started the culinary quest with the peri peri lands favourite , Nando’s. Can’t ask for a better start ! I was very much interested to know the curated menu for the fest since there isn’t anything fancy than chicken at Nando’s .The menu looked promising for a vegetarian too. First comes The Chicken Espadato ,Chicken Stuffed with cheese and grilled served with Chickpeas salad and Sauteed Veggies ,The designer drink comes with an option from the menu. It was a new variant to normal Nando’s Chicken the chicken was delicious and there was a balance in the stuffing which wasn’t oozing or less.stuffing. The drink was my all time favourite Madeira Red which i enjoyed.
Khandani Rajdhani : Rajdhani Thali has always been the best one in town. The Thali’s are lip-smacking good and they work on a rotational menu every day, adding to that the service is impeccable you will be loaded with the unlimited food while you eat. This traditional style food has always grabbed the people’s attention and on the culinary festival they have the Lunch and Dinner Menu on Tuesday which is exclusively for INR 250/- .
Punjab Grill : A steady flow of hits ( they did play my Favourite song) resonates from the speakers, as we directed to a table by the large windows overlooking the courtyard. Started from the special curated menu for the culinary quest with Paneer Tikka Anardana, Beetroot ki tikki from the veg starter and Burnt Garlic Murgh Tikka and Achari Jheenga from Non veg starter.the paneer was soft and well marinated while the beetroot ki tikki was outstanding with the subtle flavour of beetroot and stuffed mango pickle which was panko crumb coated . Achari jheenga is my fav, it’s a Jumbo Tiger Prawns well cooked and it was delicious and one of the best Prawn dish I have tasted in recent days. Burnt Garlic Murgh Tikka is another dish which is a must try. for the main course we limited to 2 gravy’s with some butter Naan. Meat Beliram which is mutton chops in thick gravy. a well cooked meat but the gravy wasn’t that great, I liked the Murgh Kali Mirch a green chilli grinded into some spices with succulent pieces of chicken. Loved The Food !
Jonah’s Goes to Japan : The connection of sushi and Japan has directed us to the next Spot with the unmistakable ambience and Stylish interiors Jonah’s had most no of dishes on the curated menu and left us with lot of choices. we opted for Sushi and Smoked Chilli Rice with creamy Tomato sauce flavoured with smoked paprika . The Smoked Chilli Rice with the tangy and Spicy curry was delicious and Top Notch with the hint of heat in the rice the gravy went really well. The sushi was presented in a fancy plate , not a fan of sushi but absolutely loved it . we ended up the quest in JOnah’s with the Hot selling Coconut Mousse .
Saving the Best for the Last , ID a perfect South indian Restaurant for quick bites, Nothing is like a South Indian Food and that too after 5 hours of tasting session in different Restaurants needed a Good finishing that’s where a Mug of HOt filter coffee was kept in front of me , The Hot Masala Dosa and Medhu Vadai tasted so good and the PAyasam,Pongal & Kesari which gave a sweet Ending to The Culinary Quest.
