This month The Oberoi, Bengaluru is celebrating their 25th Anniversary – 25 glorious years of luxury hospitality in the city! And to commemorate this special year, the culinary team has curated a menu that reflects on the finest dishes served in the property over the last two and half decades. The spread includes dishes from all their in-house specialty restaurants at the hotel. And a few of us were invited for a special preview of this spread last weekend, and here is a glimpse of that meal.
It was a beautiful day, the rains made the usually verdant lawns of the The Oberoi, Bengaluru – a bright, lush green. Fresh and juicy prawn cocktail started our meal, served chilled and saucy. A delicious and sizzling tangdi chicken kababs followed. The Meen Polichattu – spicy bhetki steamed in banana leaf was another yummy masterpiece. We tried some Thai Chicken Dumplings – the birds eye chili left a long, hot aftertaste. Seriously spicy!
The crab salad was spectacular. Avocado and crab, topped with some micro greens – kept things simple, and packed a nice crunch too. A chorizo pizza laden generously with cheese was a delight to eat, and the second pizza was a fungi mushroom overload. We nibbled on these in between conversations, slowly and steadily progressing through the courses. After the consomme, we moved on to Tenderloin Prik Thai with Sticky Rice – which was very well made, and absolute comfort food. There were three desserts served that afternoon. And while I tried very hard to resist them, you know looking at the pictures below, why that was so tough!
