Chili’s : Top Fusion Menu

Hey Guys, coming up with the new blog after a long time. But I had to write about the delicious voyage that is the new Top Fusion Menu at Chili’s. I hopped in after some Durga Puja Pandal hopping and was tired to the core. They welcomed me with a warm smile and the top fusion menu. It made my day.IMG_20170925_233128_558

Located strategically inside the comforts of Acropolis Mall, my heart yearned for this place after the arduous(read Hot & Dusty) Pandal hopping. The decor of this place always manages to warm heart and please my eyes.

BBQ steak in Chimichurri with Corncob : It simply tasted amazing. Well done steak which did not go hard – now that’s a dream !! Most steaks are either slightly bloody or you end up using the entire power of your teeth to just get a bite.A healthy portion of Steak, with lots of mashed potato and roasted onion, topped with the Chimichurri Sauce. It was delectable the core and is a must must try. IMG_20171009_164011_918_wm

Orange Glazed Salmon : I’m a fish addict, and for years have been nicknamed ‘MECHO’ (the Bengali Ghost obsessed with Fish; and why not I’m a Bengali, we are renowned for just that and well , also laziness). I wear this name with pride.The Salmon was simply awesome,and yes the Barney Stinson kind . Its a must try, undoubtedly. A giant sized salmon with boiled exotic veggies and red rice. Yes, I have another Bengali trait. The love for rice. And the red rice is superb.IMG_20171009_163541_420_wm

Big Mouth Wings : ENORMOUS wings that satiated my eyes and my stomach. 6 giant wings, a subtle dip and hangry(anger that comes from hunger) me – perfect combination.

Blackened Bhetki (Fish) : This is another fish option that is equally delicious. This new addition to the menu happens to one of my favorites and not just coz I made this huge statement about being a ‘MECHO’ earlier (pun intended). I genuinely loved the bhetki, and the flavors infused perfectly. This also came with a helping of Red Rice & Boiled Veggies.  IMG_20171009_163303_599_wm

Roasted Veggies Fajita : A great vegetarian option – Exotic Veggies , Cottage Cheese, and a wide array of condiments. I always find the fajitas at Chili’s extremely filling and this wasn’t any different. A definite must try if Veg is on your mind. IMG_20171009_163032_543_wm

Coffee Mousse Cake : This was plain heaven. A rich & dense concoction of Coffee and Mousse atop a think slice of chocolate cake. A blissful experience. I really could not have imagined a better finale than this.IMG_20171009_163351_166_wm

Heartfelt Thanks to Pradosh Pati from Chili’s Acropolis for hosting this event. And many congratulations to the staff for their courteous and ever-so-smiling attitude.

West View Bar and Grill(ITC Sonar): Italian Week 

Italian Week(21st to 27th November) is seven days of signature Italian Cuisine, the first of its kind to be held worldwide in 130 countries. West View Bar & Grill at ITC Sonar hosts this unique event (dinner only) showcasing this as the theme of the Week. They feature diverse cuisines of Piedmont, Parma and Versilia,   highlighting Italian gastronomy. The accent is on authenticity and taste crafted through the use of local products.

After delighting gourmands in Bangalore, Chef Vittorio Greco, with his Michelin starred restaurant in Italy and restaurants in Australia, lends his expertise to the occasion.  His culinary art is firmly rooted in the Italian soil combining traditional flavours with a showman’s flair.H e is a gem of a person, and his enthusiasm to food rather life in it’s entirety is infectious. He is one person I will remember for a long, long not just because of his mind blowing creations in the kitchen but for his basic outlook towards life in general.

Gondhoraj Based Welcome Drink. Made from garden variety gondhoraj and sprite. Refreshing and summery.

Zuppa Di Carciofi Con Gorgonzola E Cioccolato Fondente – Creamy artichoke soup with gorgonzella and dark chocolate. Dark chocolate in a soup. Have you EVER heard of it ??? Well, it was delicious. My showstopper for the afternoon.

Filleto Di Pollo O Alle Ebre E Limone Con Salsa Tonnata E Pane Al Sesamo : Sous Vide chicken breast with tuna sauce and sesame seeds crispy bread.This was an interesting combination , the subtle tuna sauce made all the difference. It’s truly worthy of a revisit.

Parmigiana Rivisitata Con Olio Al Carbone : Trio of aubergine tomato & parmigiano mousse with fresh aubergine salad, crispy parmesan and a drizzle of charcoal oil.A combination of all three made so many different flavours burst in my mouth. Loved it.

Filetto Di Brazino Capperi E Olive : Sea bass braised with celery, capers and olives in thyme and white wine scented broth. Fish it’s generally fried and then cooked. Here I got the chance to try the sea bass in its most nacent form, no fry, no spices. I can’t say just delicious because that wouldn’t be able to do justice to this rare dish, It was an experience in itself !! Loved it, a must try.

Ravioli Di Ossobuco Con Argumi E Spezie: Lamb ossobuco ravioli citrus sauce. The raviolis were delicious to the core – such subtlety of flavours!!

Tiramisu arrived at the fag end of the meet. And it the best Tiramisu I have ever had. I’m a Tiramisu fan and I end up having Tiramisu at many Italian joints, but nothing could beat this one. It was deliciously creamy with just enough crumbly cake, and the inherent bitter sweetness of Tiramisu that leaves you saying – ‘Pureeeeeeeeeeee Bliss’ !!
