RATING : 3.5/5
Away from the busy Express Avenue mall,on the other side hides behind a luxury hotel.
The E-Hotel(E stands for ELEGANCE, EXCLUSIVE & ELITE) that houses Entrée which is one of the luxury vegetarian boutique hotel in Chennai.
Entrée is meant for its varying cuisine fest that happens regularly.
We were invited here for The Delhi Food Festival that is scheduled for Saturday,22nd October 2016 till Sunday, 30th October 2016.
Delhi’s authentic cuisine was brought to Chennai by Entree.
We started off with their KAJU MINT SHORBA soup.For the first time,I’ve had a kaju based soup.It was very much Relishing and tasted uniquely good.
They have a live counter where they serve Delhi’s Street food.
GOL GAPPE | CHOLE BHATURA | MOMOS | Papdi Chat | Panner katti roll.
I loved the katti roll which was made with perfection and papdi chat was so yum.Gol gappe is nothing but the Delhi’s version of Pani puri.Chole bhatura was okayish and momos could have been better with the stuffings but went on well with the sauce.
For the mains they had ,
KADAI PANEER | BAINGAN ACHARI | MUTTER CURRY |ALOO KADHI | GOBI MALAI | DAL TADKA | DINGRI DOLMA | RAJMA CURRY | MUGHLAI BIRYANI
Kadai paneer and mutter curry went on well with the butter naan.Kadai panner tasted perfect with the right amount of masala and spices.Also liked DINGRI DOLMA which is a curry of mushroom and panner.Good combination.Gobi malai was a turn-off.Didn’t like it much.Mughlai veg biryani is a mild, lightly spiced, dum cooked & layered biryani made with rice, spices, mix veggies and dry fruits.Tasted good along with the curries.
Desserts were limited to,
CUT KHAJA | MOONG DAL HALWA | RASBERRY PASTRY | KIWI PANNACOTTA | TWO ICE CREAM.
Out of which I fell for RASBERRY PASTRY & KIWI PANNACOTTA. Rasberry pastry had the real flavours and sourness of the fruit. And kiwi pannacotta stood out.Something to hit on.
Overall a good fine dine experience. To the Delhi cuisine lovers, this is a must try.. give it a shot before it expires..
