Miso, Maki and Matcha: Revel In Japan's Wonderful Flavours By The Pool

    IGI Airport, Delhi


    Brace the chill in the air for splendid Japanese fine dining, coupled with warming brews at Tara, an open roof-top Japanese lounge at the trendy Roseate House.

    Small Plates, Big Flavours

    Delightfully simplistic yet superbly crafted, Tara serves gourmet goodness in a rather unlikely setting. Don’t get fooled by a casual infinity pool side lounge vibe- this Japanese kitchen has been helmed by Chef Paul Jhon Abayan {of Zuma fame}, and he ensures each plate is a winner.

    Start with the miso soup, laden with bits of salmon, prawn and tuna- this is one hearty broth, and pair it with the lettuce salad (crunchy and served with wafu dressing), before moving to a selection of inventive sushi and sashimi. For nibbles with your tipples, go with the shrimp popcorn- bite sized beauties dusted with a hint of salt and addictively hot and crisp. Herbivores, we pick the grilled broccoli stem with shizo butter for you- vibrant, fresh and nicely umami.

    Crafted With Care

    Of course, what’s a sexy roof top lounge bar without plenty of alcohol, and Tara has the works lined up for you. Make your way through single malts, cognac, a fine collection of wine and even sake, or submit to the charms of a handcrafted cocktail-there are classic G&Ts, Sours and a stellar old fashion waiting to be consumed.

    Tender Comfort

    If the nippy night, and hopefully a lot of alcohol demands more food, go for the kill with the NZ Lamb Chops served with chilli marinate. Perfectly plated, tender and juicy, the meat has a hue of spice and is divine with a glass of red. For a spot of carbs on the side go for a bowl of comfort- the Tori Chahan is starchy chicken fried rice with an undercurrent of garlic, and works just as well as an egg version too. End on a subtly sweet note- the matcha & banana pudding comes with caramel sauceand ice-cream and is the perfect ending to a fine evening.

    So, We're Saying...

    Minimal, stark and elegant, Tara is inventive Japanese at its very best- less is more here and each bite packs in a punch of fine flavour.
