HONK at PULLMANN - Asian Fine Dining at its Best







The upscale 5-star hotel is located 

adjacent to both international and 

domestic Airport terminals and is well 

connected through the Airport Express 

Line which is 5 minutes away. 
  
The Pullman New Delhi Aerocity is 

near the Business Hubs of Gurgaon, 

New Delhi and Cybercity. It is also


very close to Delhi's Shopping Malls

 including DLF Promenade, Emporio

and Worldmark. A big Complex of 670 

Rooms, Pullman and Novotel Aerocity 

is a preferred destinaton for both 

business and leisure travellers.



The design element or the theme, surrounding the interiors of the hotel is inspired by a peacock dancing to the rains, celebrating joys of life. It also portrays a beautiful mix of fast moving corporate culture and slow and relaxed leisure culture. 

I recently visited the signature restaurant HONK Asian, which is located on the lower ground floor of the hotel. A long and beautiful staircase from the lobby level takes you down to this lavish restaurant. HONK is a melting pot of Asian cuisine incorporating Thai, Chinese, Japanese and others. The food at HONK is inspired by the street style preparations. 

The live kitchen churning out fresh and beautiful dishes especially the Sushi is phenomenal. The use of bright red and wood all over gives out a warm and positive feel to the whole ambience. The Bar at the very entrance deserves a special mention too, as its very nicely placed and kept.



FOOD

Som Tam Soup – Highly recommended. Full of flavors
Tom Yum Salad – Perfect to the core; Crunchy papaya, peanuts, sweet and tangy dressing, every ingredient adding to the taste.

 
Sashimi

Sashimi – WOW – Perfect cuts of the most exotic fishes; Chutoro, Salmon, Yellow Tail (Hamachi) served with Fish Roe
Sushi – Specialty of the house; Rainbow Rolls and the Cajun Tuna were amazing.
Dimsums – Pumpkin and Pine nuts were an amazing combination – Highly Recommended



 Mains

Veg – We tried the Stir Fried braised shitake and Bokchoi – Nice with crunchy veggies and flavorful. Bangkok street cart fried rice – This was very nice and one could just have it on its own.

Twice Cooked Lamb


Singapore Chilli Shrimps
 
Nanjing Style Duck
Rendang curry - Pork
 
Non VegNanjing style Duck and Twice cooked Lamb – Duck was phenomenal and was so well braised and cooked, the texture and flavor still lingers. Lamb was nice but a little dry for my palate. Rendang Curry (Pork) was one of the best curries I have had in recent times. Thorough flavours with a burst of freshness. (Highly Recommended)


Drinks

Though, I am off poison for some time now. But my friend tried 1 or 2 of their signature summer cocktails. I tried the Mocktails and found them to be one of the best concoctions; I have tasted in recent times. The Honk lemonade is a must try. 



Honk’s Sour – Very refreshing though its whisky based, was just amazing.
Asian Martini – Wasabi flavoured Gin concoction, very nicely made.

Desserts

Jasmine Crème Brule’ – Subtle and sinful at the same time. (Must try)
Chocolate caramel and Peanut Parfait – Chocolate Ball with a twist, the chocolate ganache filled in the ball was so luscious and yummy, I can still feel it in my mouth.

HONK Asian, is a perfect example of a great restaurant backed a by a thoroughly professional and talented team of chefs and service staff. F&B team led by Mr. Ajay Anand and Chef Deepak Malhotra who have been an integral part of the Accor group, were specially flown in from USA with other people to open up these 2 hotels viz Pullmann and Novotel, Aerocity.
HONK is a must visit for everyone, who loves the Pan Asian fare. It’s one of the best in its class and the setting is fabulous.
