ITC Maurya has a rich heritage and is a sought after experience in India. They have recently included some fresh ala carte dishes on their menu and we were recently invited to taste the new menu. After the session we knew why ITC is a forerunner in the hospitality industry.
Winter is here and so is the season of heavy food. Mughlai cuisine is the cuisine for the season. The Great Kabab Factory at Radisson Blu Plaza has come up their exotic range of Indian cuisine with Namaste India special. The highlights are the herbs and spices of India. The Namaste India Festival is on till 11 Dec 2016.
Crowne Plaza at Okhla has a multi cuisine restaurant Edesia. We recently visited this restaurant to try out their Awadh food festival. The wide buffet had a selection of Awadhi dishes. Additionally there were continental, salads, dessert and sushi counters.
Buffets are good for people who liked variety in a meal. The trick is to sift through the elaborate spread and pick items of ones liking. Since there is always something for everyone in the party, we like buffet meals. We recently visited Asia Alive at DoubleTree by Hilton Gurgaon to try out their buffet.
Whiskey is one of the most popular beverages in North India. There are various styles in which connoisseurs enjoy their whisky – with soda, without soda but punched with a soft drink or just neat. The WelcomHotel Sheraton in association with the celebrity bartender Shatbhi Basu organised an American Whiskey and Tapas evening. We were invited and had a unique experience.
Thai cuisine is a combination of flavours, colors, aroma and texture. While Thai food can get spicy, the heat is very different and milder than Indian food. Given the abundance of raw / fresh ingredients in this cuisine, Thai food is easy to digest and is very suitable for the ongoing crazy days of super high temperature. J W Marriot at Aerocity near the airport is holding a Bangkok Food Festival. We visited this event last weekend to taste some Thai food.
Radisson Blu at NH-8 has this awesome Sunday brunch and for this month they have gone Mediterranean with some Indian and Chinese items to cater to all. Tackling the salads, starters, soups, main course and dessert require some strong tummy. If you are coming for this, make sure you haven’t skipped the morning exercise.
