Aerocity is the new star in the hospitality space of Delhi NCR. The area is still relatively quieter than its surroundings. We recently attended a Meet & Greet Delhi Daredevil’s party at Pullman New Delhi Aerocity and can claim some familiarity with this place.
A recent review invite at Honk, Pullman’s Pan-Asian restaurant got us here again.
We had a host of dishes and they were all very good. Below are our recommendations.
Sushis – We tried many varieties and they are hit. Specially the veg and non veg rainbow rolls were to die for.
Chicken skewer with apple sauce – For a change from peanut sauce, the apple marination gave the dish a mildly sweet but refreshing taste.
Chilean sea bass – Fish slices steamed in banana leaf created a healthy and yummy protein platter.
Prawn noodles – Although cooked in hakka style, this was soft and not oily or spicy making it a complete meal on its own or a perfect side for other dishes.
All the desserts were yum. Do try:
Ginger cake with ginger ice cream – The mild flavour in the ginger ice cream was unique and in combo with the raspberry sauce smeared on the plate, this was a deadly mixture of tastes and temperature.
Green tea créme bruleé – The magic that the chef made while combining mild jasmine tea flavour with this conventionally creamy dessert has to be tasted to be believed. The aftertaste lingered on for a while.
Talking of teas, they have a long list. One must try:
Rise and shine tea – Aromatic with a mixture of spices, this is warm and fragrant and opens up the senses.
Christmas tea – Aromatic tea with mild flavour. This is a great accompaniment with food.
We love the iron crockery that they used to serve the teas in.
What didn’t work:
Pork ribs and Vietnamese grilled chicken salad – In contrast with the other fantastic options didn’t really stand out. There was definitely room for improvement.
We were attended by Sunil and we were touched by his hospitality. The decor was clutter free and tables far apart, making this equally viable for business luncheon or dinner dates.
Asian meals are lighter than Indian cuisine and very appropriate for summer. We experienced Thai food at K3 Marriott sometime back and recently dined at Dimcha and now Honk! The range of Pan Asian Restaurants in Delhi NCR is just getting better and better.
For people who dig Asian Cuisine and like lighter food affair, try Honk – Pullman New Delhi Aerocity. It’s worth the indulgence.
