Veggie spread

A weekend buffet is the latest at Aashna restaurant, Aalankrita


BUFFETS SEEM to be the order of the day. Increasingly, restaurants are subscribing to them providing customers a whole spread in the bargain with a value for money. Aalankrita, The Ethnic Gateway (Thumkunta Village, Karimnagar main road, Shameerpet mandal, R.R. District. Tel: 958418247161, 162, 199, 464), has introduced a weekend buffet at Aashna, the pure vegetarian restaurant set amidst lush lawns and open spaces. Mainly for families who want to unwind in the weekend, the buffet offers a veggie spread - a salad counter and chaat, two soups, live pasta counter, three paneer preparations, five vegetable items, two-three kinds of dal, three types of rice plus plain rice, sambhar and rasam and about five sweets (out of which one is a pudding or soufflé) and ice creams. Right now the tava sweet (a mixture of sweets mixed on the tava in rabdi and served sizzling hot) is the hot dish (this is even served at weddings) and this is also served here at times.

Priced at Rs. 140 plus taxes, this buffet is open for dinner on Saturdays (7 to 10.30 p.m.) and lunch and dinner on Sundays (12 to 3.30 p.m. and 7 to 10.30 p.m.).

This buffet is likely to be a permanent feature at Aashna. So the next time you want to relax, drive down to Aalankrita (about 18 kms from Secunderabad station) and gorge on the lavish spread laid out for you by Chef Gomes.
