Oz calling


SO FOOD lovers. Here comes another restaurant specialising in mid-eastern and Mediterranean cuisine. Named Oz, it is at MGF Plaza mall, Gurgaon.

Launched about a month and a half back, Oz has a capacity of hundred diners with a refreshing, spacious look, providing both vegetarian and non-vegetarian mid-eastern fare with a few Italian dishes on the side too. To begin the meal, lay your hands on the starters called mezze for a wide mix of flavours and food forms. The appetisers, hummus, grilled bacon, wrapped prawns, kibbesh, soups and salads are as yummy as they can be. . The traditional Moroccan harira-lamb broth, med chicken broth and the wild mushroom soup and Tunisian tuna salad can be absolute favourites along with fattoush and tabbouleh. A special shwarma machine has been installed exclusively to prepare the succulent chicken dish using spices like zatar and sumac. The sauces are prepared with the fresh ingredients as soon as one orders.

"Apart from this what adds to the charm of the dιcor are the hookahs and the live kitchen that is known for pastas, zatar chicken wings, chicken donor kebab and shish taouk," says Daman Sodhi, director, Oz.

The main courses are the real catchers with rose petal salmon imported from Norway and the tahina snapper fillet served with the famous tahina sauce. The Lebanese samak harra is a pan-fried river sole and is served with ozi rice.

For the sweet tooth, there are eggless desserts like the utterly delicious chocolate salami. With the rate card reasonab enough for the family to dine without fear of burning a hole in the pocket, Oz promises to be inviting, intimate and irresistible.
