INDIGO – Diversity at its best





                   INDIGO Delhi – Diversity at its best 



As you walk into the One Golden Mile, an expansive, beautiful and elegant space welcomes you; Indigo Delhi- one of India’s premier restaurants designed to embrace the three basic principles: excellent food, warm hospitality and superior service. It’s that time of the year when Delhi starts getting enveloped in chilly winters and nothing is more comforting that a plate of hearty and wholesome food.
Indigo is all set to satisfy your cravings and comfort you with some soul food as it unveils a new menu to celebrate the winter. Conceptualized and crafted by resident culinary genius Chef Nitin Kulkarni has aimed at bringing some simple flavors and combinations to you table. With some spectacular dishes and fine-exquisite ingredients, this menu is bound to satiate you.


We started our culinary experience at Indigo with Chocotini- Martini with a twist of chocolate and a Mimosa. They have a whole new range of drinks that complement the meals. Amouse bouche was a crunchy almond biscuit served with goat cheese and raspberry coulis. As this restaurant is a host to mostly women clientele during lunch hours, they have included a wide range of fresh salads to cater to them. We started with a refreshing curly cress, arugula and figs salad with salty crumbled feta, walnuts and sherry mustard dressing- perfect balance of ingredients, truly delectable. Also we binged on an extremely flavorful ceaser salad which vas very fulfilling and kind of addictive. 





 
Our taste buds were already hijacked but there was more to come. For our second course we had porchini and goat cheese ravioli with some truffle cream and chestnut relish, balsamic grilled Portobello with a mediterranean couscous and fresh arugula, pan roasted red snapper served with a champagne beurre blanc and cucumber-celery slaw. A highlight or a feature of this menu is the use of exotic and exquisite ingredients like grilled palm hearts, Parsnips, Jerusalem Artichokes, Fresh Kale, Swiss Chard etc. The menu is very diverse and each dish perfectly preserves the character of the ingredients used.

For someone like me for whom the menu starts with the desserts, what came next will simply blow your mind- a Belgian chocolate and hazelnut dome with a milk caramel ice cream, cherry compote and toasted hazelnuts; when you glide you spoon through this dark and intense chocolate dome a luscious hazelnut puree balances the bitterness of chocolate. This dessert was so drool worthy that I will go back to Indigo just for this. We also tried a salted caramel brulee and a sugar free lemon cheese cake served with a blood orange sorbet and raspberry coulis.

 
The menu for lunch and dinner vary a little but some signature dishes remain constant. The heart and soul of Indigo has always been its food. This new menu has been crafted in a way that gives every fabulous ingredient used, it’s day in the sun. If you give Indigo a miss this season, then trust me you will deprive yourself from tasting some truly artistic and delectable dishes.
