If you're somebody who looks for crisp, fresh produce in food when you eat out, then we're thrilled to tell you about Fire's (The Park's primary restaurant) organic winter menu!
Fire changes their menu several times a year and they make sure that each time they introduce innovative delicacies that are all created out of the best seasonal produce. The recent winter menu they've launched is a great combination of delicacies from Himachal Pradesh and the coastal region.
Our meal here started with a super refreshing starter Kulle ki chaat, which was watermelon, garnished with pomegranate on top of a paan leaf. Then, we tried the comforting and warm serving of Thakkali Pondu Rasam with bruschetta bread.
You also have to try the Zad Apple Salad with winter greens. The crunchy apple, along with the spinach leaves, orange slices and lentils is a like a clean, green party in the mouth. Next, we got a generous serving of the Smoked Masala Pork Ribs, Koli Barthad (Coorg fried chicken) and Red Snapper Pollichathu (fried fish in banana leaf wrap), and while I enjoyed the Koli Barthad more, because of its achaari taste, my friend liked the pork better.
Do try the Kasundi fish with olive tepenade, but the star of our entire meal was the their traditional regional food thali. This wholesome Thali consists of dishes like Nalli Nihari, Malabar Prawn curry, Khubani Stuffed Malai Kofta, Swastika Anaj Ki Khichdi, red rice and Five Seed and Cheddar Kulcha. Is your mouth watering yet? We also ended the meal on the perfect note with their delish Strawberry Cheese Cake with macerated strawberries and angoori petha, so that should definitely give you a grand incentive to not miss out on Fire's organic winter menu!
