#NewMenuAlert: Sushi, Shrimps & Mimosas: The Sunday Brunch At Whisky Samba Is A Weekend Treat


  • Whisky Samba has been enthralling guests in Gurgaon for a few years now
  • It is known to have the longest bar in Delhi-NCR
  • Whisky Samba is slowly making Food its high point

Whisky Samba, a classy restaurant by seasoned restaurateurs Ashish Dev Kapur and partner Joydeep Singh, has been enthralling guests in Gurgaon for a few years now. The restaurant, located at one of Gurgaon’s most posh office addresses, became popular initially, thanks to its large bouquet of cocktails, mocktails and an exhaustive wine menu. Incidentally, Whisky Samba is known to have the longest bar in Delhi-NCR. The stunning 50-foot bar offers an impressive 180 types of whisky and whisky-based cocktails. The food here was always good, but not necessarily what would pull you to this part of NCR on a weekend. Aiming to change that, the team got on board Chef Vikramjit Roy a few months back, with the result that Whisky Samba is slowly making Food its high point.


Whisky Samba recently introduced a fabulous new menu spearheaded by Chef Roy

 Chef Vikramjit Roy, of course, needs very little introduction to those who have been following the restaurant scene in India. For the uninitiated, Chef Roy is an industry veteran and the man behind such iconic brands like Tian, Pan Asian and Wasabi by Morimoto. Not many know that Chef Roy has also worked with international restaurants like Bangkok’s Nahm and the famous Din Tai Fung’s Taipei branch.

Whisky Samba recently introduced a fabulous new menu spearheaded by Chef Roy, which clearly reflects his vast experience in Pan Asian flavours. The new menu is presented well and is showcased as Gourmet Bar Meals – with the aim to tie-in their specialty bar offerings along with a fresh set of savouries and sweets.

The new menu has modern Japanese and Pan Asian dishes as well

The menu is broadly divided into two parts – one with Modern Japanese and Pan Asian dishes and the other showcasing a set of ‘Nostalgic Mains’. The variety in the first is huge and every dish comes with super flavours and international-style presentation. But it’s the second half of the menu that I find more exotic, actually. This part is inspired by Chef Roy’s family recipes, and flavours that have been collected from all over the country over his travels; this section is a must-try for the regional-food junkies. We don’t know if these dishes are Chef’s personal favourites, but it’s safe to say they are from his personal collection and that’s good enough! 


Drawing from the new menu, Whisky Samba has created a weekend meal aimed at people from Gurgaon, and even South Delhi.  The Sunday Brunch menu, in a way, offers you the best of both worlds. You’ve got sushi, salads, burritos, toasts, and warm appetisers like dim sums, soups, fritters and stir-fried meats, with of course cocktails and wines to enjoy, plus there are also a few signature nostalgia dishes to savour as mains. 


There are rustic, artsy ‘stations’ all over the restaurant

All dishes are served on your table, while you also have these rustic, artsy ‘stations’ all over the restaurant where you could go and get a soup, salad, duck roll or even a waffle/pancake to order. 
Some of the dishes you must not miss include: Minced chicken salad, fish dumplings with roasted onion sauce, crabmeat and poached chicken toast, asparagus croissant served with a spicy celery sauce and stir fried shrimps and the duck rolls. From the Chef’s Nostalgia section, I really enjoyed the red snapper cooked in mustard and raw mango sauce.


Everything on the menu is free of refined sugar and flour

The health conscious will be happy to note that everything on the menu is free of refined sugar and flour. Additionally, a quick chat with Chef Roy revealed that beyond his dishes and presentation, he is also trying to keep his overall approach modern and relevant to the world we live in. Salads are sourced locally and picked fresh regularly, meats are cooked sous-vide style, and he tries to get on board artisanal brands in a bid to support local, seasonal produce.

The Samba Sunday Brunch Details: 

Unlimited delicacies from sushi, cold plates, salads, dim sum, warm appetisers, mains & desserts. INR 2300 ++ (Food)
Add INR 1000++ (Unlimited cocktails/beer)
Add 1500 ++ (Unlimited IMFL, cocktails, beer, sparkling wine)

#NewMenuAlert: Delhi Vs Lucknow; Witness The Ultimate Culinary Clash Of Titans At The Imperial, New Delhi

Delhi and Lucknow are unarguably two of the most historically rich cities of our country. Glorious empires, foreign invasions, refugees; these cities have lived through so much that history books often do not do justice to chronicle the same. This is why culture enthusiasts are on a constant lookout for as many relics and remnants of past that serve as a reminder of the era gone by. Both Delhi and Lucknow have managed to preserve it reasonably well in multiple ways, one of them being their culinary know-how. Daniell’s Tavern at The Imperial Hotel, is paying an ode to the rich gastronomic heritage of both the cities in its upcoming food festival, ‘The Clash of The Titans- Dilli Ka Swad and Lucknawi Andaz’. Chef Ved Prakash and Chef Mirza Munnawar Baig at The Imperial will be presenting a perfect ensemble of hand-picked traditional favourites from Delhi and Lucknow respectively. From the spicy and flavourful curries of purani Dilli to the melt-in-mouth aromatic kebabs of Lucknow, brace yourself for the best foodie face-off in town.

Vijay Wanchoo, Sr. Executive Vice President and General Manager, The Imperial New Delhi, tells us that “The concept of ‘Clash of the Titans’ takes you on a delectable culinary journey of Hindustan and revives the traditional recipes, passed on to our Masterchefs Ved and Mirza by their forefathers. The menus by the chefs revisit the legendary food aesthetics of Lucknow and purani Dilli, passed on from generation to generation.” 


Murgh Dum Biryani 

He further says, “The magic is recreated for discerning diners with Gosht ki Ghilawat, Kakori kebabs, Chakunder aur Raamdana ki tikki along with an array of Dum Biryanis by Chef Mirza while Chef Ved offers his meticulous craftsmanship with Guchhi Mussalam, Mahi Nazakat, Dilli 6  ka Mutton Korma with purani Dilli ka Shahi Tukda, all to reconnect with our forgotten recipes.”


Ghosht ki gilawat

From their stash of secret ingredients and recipes, both Chef Ved and Chef Mirza have curated a spread that they have grown up with. Chef Mirza happens to be the fourth generation of Khansama from Lucknow. His forefathers have cooked for the Nawabs of the royal courts of Awadh. He has used his own blend of spices in his kebabs and biryanis that he has inherited from his family. Bringing the Dilli ka swad on table is Chef Ved. His grandfather was the head chef of one of Chandni Chowk’s most popular dhaba in the pre-partition era. 


Bharwa gulab jamun and Khoya jalebi 

So what is the essential difference between Awadhi and Delhi cuisine? Chef Ved told us that Delhi loves its gravy or any preparation for that matter to be spicy, chatpata and decadent. There is also a dominant use of garlic in our preparations that is not so common in Awadhi delights. Both his Paya Shorba and Purani Dilli Ka Mutton Korma, are both rich in spices and texture. While Awadhi preparations also make use of select spices, there is also a conscious attempt to make the dishes aromatic. There is a distinct use of kewda, cardamom and ittar. 


Purani Dilli ka Shahi tukda

We tried and absolutely loved the melt-in-mouth Dahi Anjeer ke Kebab, Mahi Nazakat (Sole fish tikka) and Chakunder aur Raamdana ki Tikki; tender, flavourful and so delicious. Kakori and Galauti kebabs cooked on coal with a secret spice mix are sure to leave you craving for more. The soothing Mutton Korma and Subz Badaam ka Shorba are all things winter-y and comforting. Vegetarians may also try their rich and robust Gucchi Mussallam, a spicy mushroom preparation made with khoya, cheese, saffron, ghee and fresh cream. 

The festival will start from 17th November and would go on until the 24th of November only. So make sure you get to taste all these traditional delights at the earliest.

Thai food has emerged as a truly global cuisine, loved by people across the world, and is one of the most prominent Asian cuisines. The flavours of Thai cuisine combine three out of the four basic tastes- sweet, sour and salty- and are pretty popular among Asian food lovers in India as well. Thai food lovers in Delhi have a new opportunity to taste authentic Thai cuisine, right here in the city, without having to travel thousands of miles to the country of its origin. Hyatt Regency Delhi is hosting a Thai Food Festival for 10 days from October 18, 2018 to October 28, 2018 and it promises to tingle your taste buds.

#NewMenuAlert: 5 Stars To Plucks New Weekday Luncheon, A Must-Try

Going through a buffet meal in the middle of a hectic work day is not everyone’s idea of a working lunch. Buffet spreads are expected to be elaborate, and going through several courses can take time. With all the work-chatter going on, you also don’t savour the food as much, especially when main course dishes are also served buffet-style. To bring in the best of both worlds – Pluck at Pullman New Delhi Aerocity has come up with an innovative new concept. ‘Weekday Luncheons’ marries the best of buffet-style eating with the finesse of a-la-carte dining. Here, you can enjoy a buffet spread and also savour a hot, beautifully plated main course dish that would be served at the table when you are ready. 


Curry Leaf Podi Dusted Braised Lamb

Pluck, Pullman New Delhi Aerocity 

Pluck has been popular for its modern European and contemporary Indian food ever since it opened doors a few years back. The restaurant boasts of a seasonal menu that is made using quality ingredients. In fact, they have an in-house farm located in the central section of the property from where chefs source a lot of salads and vegetables to prepare exotic dishes every day. Extremely popular with the corporate crowd on weekdays, Pluck has always stood out for its innovative plating and for the dishes that are presented ‘de-constructed’ and assembled right on the table. 


Dessert at Pluck

Weekday Luncheon At Pluck

The #newmenu at Pluck, introduced via its Weekday Luncheon, is aimed at the same clientele. It helps make working lunches a quicker affair, without compromising on taste or plating.  

Here are 3 reasons you need to make this your next working lunch venue: 

1. Pre-Plated Salad Bar: Ever noticed how the salads that come plated to your table (when you order a-la-carte) taste so much better than the mishmash you assemble yourself at buffets? Well, you won’t have that problem at Weekday Luncheon. The8 restaurant has made sure that even the salads on the buffet come in small pre-assembled plates, with just the right amounts of dressing and seasoning. You won’t mess it up this time. Ah, and you also don’t waste all those greens. Another reason we love this idea. 


Salads at Weekday Luncheon at Pluck

2. Fresh Juices: The buffet offers a wide range of fresh juices, all without added sugar or any preservatives. Also, the serving size of these sealed bottles is just right. We tasted the fresh carrot and apple juice and it tasted as fresh as they come.  


Fresh Juices at Pluck

3. There are several main-course dishes to choose from. We tasted them all (yes!), and while it is really tough to recommend one over the other, if we were to pick one it would have to be the Dukkah Spiced Chicken. Dukkah is a Mediterranean spice mix that traditionally contains nuts, sesame seeds and cumin. There are many recipes for making this spice blend; the most popular ones also include herbs such as thyme and mint. But, don’t forget that this is a buffet! So, go ahead and taste the Amritsari Basket and Lentil Crusted Fish too. All main-course dishes are served hot at your table after you place your order with the server at the beginning of your meal. 


Amritsari Kulcha Basket


Weekday Luncheon at Pluck

Pluck’s Weekday Luncheon, as the name suggests, is served only on Weekdays. On weekends, the restaurant goes back to its signature menu to be ordered a-la-carte. 

When: Monday To Friday; 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm 

Price For Two: Rs 1,850 plus taxes per person

Nestled in the classy Shangri-La’s – Eros Hotel, stepping into Sorrento feels like stepping back into a bygone era of Italian glamour with wooden tables, white and brown furnishings, low lighting and open kitchens that serve both pizzas and mains.

We started with Guazetto di Mare, which comprised beautifully sliced squid and prawns topped with a tomato broth. Juicy, tangy and fresh! Having enjoyed the opening sequence, I moved to the second dish, Risotto alla Milanese, which was a braised saffron risotto with parma-wrapped scallop, and spaghetti pomodoro (spaghetti in Pomodoro sauce with burrata and olive dust), which was made live. The highlight is undoubtedly the Porchetta, a crispy pork belly with pear glaze and pineapple reduction. You will find some unusual pasta dishes on the menu that are well worth a try. The perfect show stoppers were the desserts from their Dolce menu. As they say, that there is always room for dessert, so we started with Tiramisu, a classic Italian dessert served with tender biscuit, amaretto and mascarpone cream; followed by Torta al limone, a deconstructed lemon tart; and a delicious Panna Cotta.
