This weekend I was invited to relish the flavors of authentic Rajasthani cuisine. The cuisine which belongs to the land of Maharajas at Feast, Sheraton Grand, Bangalore.
Chef Ram Sing Rathore and Chef Devendra Partap Singh were specially invited from Rajasthan for this festival. The menu was specially curated by these two chefs.
A variety of Rajasthani delicacies were present on the menu. It was a perfect spread of royal cuisine from the kitchen of the warriors.
Ambiance & Service:
As soon as we entered the restaurant, we got a warm welcome.
The ambiance was set as per the Rajasthani theme. Handmade Rajasthani puppets, decorated earthen pots, hand embroidered umbrellas and more were around which made the afternoon very lively.
The service was perfect.
We got to taste some delicious Rajasthani drinks like – Sattu Ki Sharbhat and Jaipuri Chach. Both of these drinks were delicious and I had never tasted these before.
A live counter was present which was making some authentic Rajasthani kebabs like Murgh Ka Shoole, Jaiselmer Ki Booti and Laal Maas.
