Spiderman mania


IT IS clearly not our cinema halls that have caught the fancy of Spiderman, the Toby Maguire movie. The craze worldwide over this Hollywood flick has been so much even in the city of Delhi that even malls and restaurants here have fallen for its charms.

Radisson MBD at Noida, till this past week, had a food festival by the tag of Spiderman Festival. Focussing on the Spiderman mania, the fest began the day the movie was launched in India x July 23. Doing up the right décor for this buffet lunch, it had netted tablecovers and a huge Spiderman balloon hanging by the roof, a giant screen playing the movie snapshots.

Bringing in food from the streets of New York, the place where Spiderman crisscrosses, the fest had dishes from well-known restaurant on different streets in that city. The famous ones being 'Midtown and Times Square' known for its hard rock café, 'Soho' for its natural vegetarian fare and the 'China Town',the name leaves little to guess. Also, there is 'Tribeca' with its two most famous restaurants x Nobu (Japanese) and Chanterelle (contemporary French) x offering a wide variety of vegetarian and non- vegetarian dishes. The festival also included food from the not so famous street joints 'Bronx', 'East Village' and 'Little Italy'.

Radisson MBD also gave a shine to the festival by introducing the Spiderman Pasta. The special pasta was prepared by the chefs. Doc Ock's Tentacles, Pure Mary, Green Goblin are some of the mocktails on offer under the title, Ultimate Spiders.

Chef Arun Tyagi, Executive chef at the hotel said, "European food is historical and is different, and we are here with an effort to authenticate its importance and mass familiarity".
