Delhi Pavilion in ITC Sheraton Hotel is a true mark of luxury right from its first sight. It has a huge Luxury dining area serving a multi cuisine Ala Carte menu and Buffet. It offers you Delhi on your plate and the cuisine here is known as Dehalnvi cuisine. Each dish featured is a favorite of the people living in Delhi and forms an intrinsic part of Delhi’s culinary history. Delhi is an amalgamation of many intermingling cultures and the same has influenced the food as well. The food we get today in Delhi has been inspired from the different eras. Beginning from the Mughals to the era of the Lutyens, to the Cosmopolitan Delhi we know today.
Chef Vipul and Chef Deepak are the curators of this impressive dining experience we had. They have excelled in making a menu which will be loved by the international travelers and locals alike. Their innovative menu offers delicious interpretations of cuisines from around the world, alongside traditional Indian favorites and seasonal choices.
Our culinary journey started with street food. We had Palak Patta Chaat and Matthi topped with choley and a tangy sauce. They both just blasted a plethora of flavors on our taste buds. The flavors had Delhi marked all over them. They also gave us glimse of their ongoing Bengali food festival. The Best was the Mustard fish wrapped in Banana Leaf. They serve the same dish with Paneer as well. The sliced fish was marinated in Mustard and steamed after being wrapped in a Banana Leaf. I don’t think I need to explain more to authenticate that it was a treat to our pallets. The Buffet was a lavish spread having some continental and oriental dishes as well to add the variety. The Kolkata Mutton Biryani and Bekti Maach were highlights of the main course of the buffet.
On the Chef’s recommendation was tried Daal Dehalnvi and Mutton Nihari as well. Dall Dehalnvi is a Yellow Daal garnished with crispy Moong Daal, Chillies, Chaat Masala, Ginger and Corriander. They all added to the flavours of the Daal. A different and a delectable combination. Now came the Mutton Nihari. I don’t think I have had a better Muttton Nihari then this. The consistency of the gravy and and flavors were perfect. The mutton was super soft and just melted in our math.
For the Desserts there was huge spread and continental and Indian Desserts. Our picks were Rashogullas and Moong Daal Halva.
