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.

Fork & Knife : Breaking the fast

​Fork & Knife (Orion West Willows Hotel) has recently launched a new breakfast alacart menu for Kolkatans And I had the privilege to attend the Breakfast Launch.

 Here are 5 reasons to try it out .. 

1. Breakfasts parties are trending this winter. You maybe an early morning jogger, or maybe returning from a late night party, or just maybe someone with pre-going-to-work cravings, or a plain foodie.

2. You are bored of conventional breakfast options in the city.

3. The food is quirky, and a few of their signature dishes are a rarity in the city. Ever heard of a Romlette. Well, you will have to go there and find out.

4. You firmly believe – For Breakfast, eat like a King. 

5. And the fact is ‘Kings don’t Cook’.

Are you convinced? Well I wasn’t!! I’m generally a late riser and when Amit Bajoria(the owner) asked me attend a breakfast bloggers meet I did have second thoughts. But it was the perfect winter morning – a cloudless sky, there was a nip in the air and a some soothing sun rays to brighten the day !! I felt positive as soon as I stepped out. When I appeared at the restaurant there were a few other energetic bloggers and a sumptuous spread. The Bajorias – Amit & Swati were jumping all around the place making sure everything is alright, basically getting the party started. I began my morning with some skepticism but it soon turned into a memorable experience. 

We began our breakfast with some Scramble Vegetable on Toast – Fresh Carrots, Beans and other vegetables saute’d in butter & house special white sauce and garnished with Cheese. Talk of delicious and healthy. And what a visual delight with red, green, yellow and lots more.

Then arrived Corn on Toast which was a creamy early morning delight.

Talk of quirky and here they created Romlettes. Now what’s that ? Well it Roesti Omelette,Potato Roesti with fillings of exotic vegetables – a Vegetarian substitute for Non vegetarian omelette.  It’s not just quirky but quite delicious, healthy and extremely filling.A must try.

Cold Coffee – it was thick, frothy, lots of coffee. Just in sync. with the bitter-sweetness that my sleepless morning was turning out to be. A must try.

Kachori Platter  comprised of 8 club size kachoris, with 2 pcs each of 4 varieties – Club, Mutter, Hing & Besan. The Platter looked really cute. And i loved the club and Matt kachori. Everything was fresh and the Sabji (veg curry) was delectable.

Kanji Vada in Ganna ka Juice (Sugarcane juice). What an innovative idea. Regular Kanji Badass dipped in Sugarcane Juice. I love sugarcane juice and the fact that it’s mildly sweet. The combination stood out and I ended up eating bowls and bowls of it. A definite must try.

Banana Crepe – Frankly, I’m not a banana fan but the Crepe was interesting. I realty want to try the Apple Crepe on my next visit.

I also tried some Chocolate & Strawberry Milk Shakes. They looked colourful but I found them to be tad bit extra sweet. 

 
I ended my breakfast with some Blueberry and Chocolate Pancakes. Oh!!! And what an ending it was. They presentation itself made the Pancakes look very enticing and the pancakes were soft and well made and the toppings were DELICIOUS!! If you ever visit place the blueberry pancakes are a must try. It was the showstopper of the day.

Apart from the sumptuous Ala carte menu, they also have a buffet with items like Baked beans on Toast, Idli, Vada, Poha, Parathas, Chola Bhatura, Muffins is also available. The Ala Carte menu introduced today would also be available at CEDAR – The Banquet for Breakfast parties.
