Cuisine caravan

From an authentic North Indian fare to dishes right out of a Hyderabadi kitchen, the Culinary Caravan at Viceroy offers exotic cuisine to enthuse the gastronome in you through the week.


CROSS COUNTRY: A diverse spread is offered across the week

CONFUCIUS SAID of food as being the ultimate happiness. And boy he was right! Cuisine is not about food per se but the experience that it brings.

Vivid cuisine traditions served in an ambience that comprises translucent windows overlooking a sparkling blue pool! Well, it is the `Culinary Caravan' at Patio-The Coffee Shop, Viceroy Hotel and Convention Centre.

This epicurean journey offers a diverse spread across the week starting from a North Indian Monday to a Hyderabadi Friday.

"It's about having a 365-day food festival, with a different cuisine for each day," says Aijaz Ali, Vice President Viceroy Hotel and Convention Centre.

Incidentally the hotel has bagged the H&FS (Hospitality & Food Service) Award for the All India First Class Business Hotel 2001 in the 5-star category that was conferred recently at a glittering ceremony in New Delhi.

And for the Culinary Caravan, it is a weeklong indulgence in exotic food right from the word appetiser-the nahari for the Hyderabadi spread to a Chinese hot and sour soup. Kicking off the food caravan is an exotic North Indian spread on Monday with makkai ki roti, sarson ka saag, gosht hariyali, kali mirchi ka murgh, gobi ki tahari, methi dal and more.

For the Shakahari Tuesday menu it is an all out vegetarian fare from the Andhra kitchen- the bachhala koora pappu, kandagadda masala, beans thalimpu, pulihora and bobattlu.


EPICUREAN JOURNEY: Head for the Patio to indulge your palate.

If this was mouth-watering enough, the Oriental Wednesday packs up irresistible Chinese cuisine with Mandarin fish, sliced lamb Cantonese, vegetable chow with cashew nuts, vegetable Manchuria, Shanghai fried rice and date pancakes. For the regional delicacies it is good food right from the south Indian kitchen with vegetable chettinad, mushroom with coconut, chapala pulsu, thengai saddam, vankai guthulu, and khova kajjikai for the South Indian Thursday.

Come Hyderabadi Friday it is the haleem, khubuli, dalcha, dum ka tomato, methi masoor ki dal, khichidi, shikampuri and the qubani ka meetha, sheer korma and double ka meetha for the dessert.

And for the weekend, it is the Multi-Cuisine Saturday with grilled fish patties with chicken, murgh do pyaza, kabuli chana biryani, kaju matter paneer, Nilgiri vegetables and Singapore soft noodles with truffle pudding.

And to round up a delightful week, it is the Rajasthani Sunday with mal pua, moong dal halwa, bhendi Jaipuri and dal bhatti churma.

Check out from the options available across the week at the dinner buffets that start at 7:30 p.m here, to get a taste of some irresistibly exotic cuisine. For further information you could call up 7538383.
