Blue Ginger

A top favourite but usually out of budget for most, head here for exceptional Vietnamese food. Featuring a veggie and non-vegetarian menu, there are a few common dishes, and we’re gunning for the Hanoi-style Corn Cake and Grilled Lamb Chop with Barbecue Sauce. Of course, the signature main is Wok Tossed Chicken or Beetroot and Beanshoot in Lemongrass and Chilli. Finish off with Lemongrass ice cream, naturally.

Where: Taj West End, 25, Race Course Road

While the vegetarians can get paneer in forms and flavour like never before {think dumplings}, chargrilled artichoke or country figs with vegetables, it’s the carnivores who should celebrate. Kolkata beckti wrapped in a banana leaf, Dakhni Murgh Kebab {chicken marinated with pepper, garlic, chilli and curry leaf} and of course the appetiser signature – Balkash Rubina which is tiger prawn cooked in yoghurt, yellow chilli and saffron. But don’t load up too much as the garlic infused lamb curry and the Baluchi special, slow-cooked black dal are part of the mains.

For mains, Grilled Snapper with nimbu relish and moilee cream, and Chicken Roulade essenced with rusvaa in a biryani composition. Veggies can indulge in fenugreek and pea gnocci and Bihari pithri pockets stuffed with spinach and cottage cheese. End with Mishti Doi Brulee.
