visited this restaurant twice and loved it both times.Last time it was a
Lucknowi festival and this time on a Sunday Brunch which co-incides with their
Dastar - e -Navroz festival. Highly talented Chefs I must say. I met them and
got to know about the basics of this unique festival and it's offerings.
Persian and Afghan influence on the food during this Navroz festival which
marks the New year celebrations of the Parsis. But mind it the food served is
not Parsi its kind of inspired from the Persian region and the silk route.
is a no clutter, basic restaurant in WelcomHotel Dwarka. It's also the
24 hours all day dining area for the hotel. Large space gives it a vast look.
As it was a
brunch there was a large spread of dishes. To begin with we started with
salads like orange and beet root salad, the terrine was really nice and fresh.
The Lebanese dips like hummus and tzatziki were perfectly made.
As we moved
ahead we saw bamboo steamers and got a little confused. I asked the Chef why,
Chinese and he smilingly told us that due to the Chinese travellers on the silk
route the food was also influenced by them. The Ashark or steamed dumplings
were good both non veg as well as vegetarian ones.
was the freshly grilled whole leg of chicken with skin rubbed with minimal
spices and marinated in tomato and onion juice only. This was so succulent and
juicy it was heavenly I must say. The serving was on a bed of high quality of
rice. Mash Pulao was nice it had moong dal in it.
in spinach gravy ( Palak Kofta) was good but the Lamb dish was awesome with
great flavor of the meat. The Pulao with chicken was just okay. Dolma Murch is
bell peppers stuffed with rice and then steamed, it was nice. The Kachaloo
burrani which was actually Aaloo was nice too.
counter with Desserts from the region was also done up. It had Baklawas,
Semolina cake, Fruit tart, a lovely potion full of dried fruits which were
marinated 7 days back in water with a some sweetener and a flavoring (Aft Meva)
Bahadur is a pastry chef but his inputs in this festival are remarkable.
As he has stayed for more than a year in Afghanistan and nearby, he has a
strong influence on his cooking skills.
Welcomgroup will never disappoint anyone when it comes to traditional flavors.
I am going
back again to taste more dishes from the Navroz menu soon.
