ZAGA ---- First Online Feature

First online feature.......... ZAGA - COURTYARD DINING @MGF METROPOLITAN SAKET NEW DELHI. ...

 


Standee in the Mall


 Lovely people ....just wanted to tell u all about our visit to an upcoming place in Delhi at Saket , MGF Metropolitan....... ZAGA.......... It was the soft launch of the place as it's very soon launching its operations in a week or so.....with a blast...... I was very humbly invited by the man himself the "Foodie Surdie" Mr. Avininder Singh Jee...... for the party , which was a very private affair at the moment..... WOW is the word , i must say.....The place is an open terrace setting under the star lit sky with lovely furniture and beautiful ambient lights adding much flavor to the whole atmosphere.......very romantic i must say........


Mr. Singh has brought the concept of Latin American Cuisine in a very innovative manner, which is one of its kind and for the first time in the country. This concept covers countries like Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Cuba, Chile and Mexico……. The best from Latin America…….
Lets come to food…… We were served with the most authentic dishes panning these nations…..by the most hospitable lady I have met in my entire life Shikkha ....Thanks for her courtesy and lovely attitude. ....Cheers

We started with a lovely refreshing Cold Cucumber Soup and a Chicken Chowder Soup and Cuban Corn Chowder ---( The final menu was not ready so I may mention the dish names a little here and there)…
I must say both these soups were very unique in taste and preparation and were v.good too.



Soups

Solterito Salad
Casa Salad

We were served salads after that……Oh my my…..The SALADS ..were too good ….. Solterito as well Casa…..both were awesome….full of veggies and some fruits with Chicken bits in the non veg version…..

Then came the starters ……we had Empanadas (is a stuffed bread or pastry baked or fried)…. Stuffed with Lamb Mince…….to put it simply I must say they are Meat filled Gujiyas ( Gujiyas which we have around HOLI ) …. Very much known to us…..and easy to adapt….V.nicely made and tasted good. Though can be a little more crispy and a little more stuffed……. A must Try………

Then the Mains were served….. Argentine Lentil Soup which was a Dal type dish with a sweet and sour angle to it…..Fish Stew ..which had the the red snapper in a thick gravy ..had a lovely pungency of sea food in it…..and a Chicken dish Pechunga en Mole …. Chicken Breast grilled covered in Chocolate sauce … with sides of Peruvian Cilantro Rice and Mexican White Rice and Tortillas…….


Orangito...




Empanadas


Very unique dishes …..as we had not tasted ever ……. Must try for everyone…….

Last but not the least the lovely deserts we had…. Suspiro Limeno and Mousse de Chocolatey Kahlua…… Suspiro Limeno was a lovely blend of Toffee base covered wth fresh cream and dusting of cocoa….. and the Chocolatey Kahlua was a Chocolate Mousse with the undertones of Kahlua…… Very Very Good…..

We tried many cocktails ….like Spicy Mango Favela …Mango concoction with a tinge of salt and chilli and Orangito ( Orange Mojito)……..and also a Beer Cocktail which was customized by our friend Nikhil of Hmmm reviews... for us…..It was very good too……

Mango Favela


All in all it’s a very unique and novel experience for all of us….. The dishes are new…the preparations are different and the ingredients are unique so the overall feel is new too……


I suggest everyone to definitely try it once coz its not a regular fare of Chinese , Italian or Indian which we usually have each and everyday……
