Man Behind Weber Grills

The Cooking Session started with great zealth amongst the bloggers who were present there. While one marinated the Chicken, the other marinated the paneer dices which were to be grilled using the Weber Grills.

One of the blogger who loved baking started preparing the batter for the banana bread with the guidance of the Chef and the recipe provided to him.

While the chef was helping everyone there, he instructed me to prepare a Pizza base. The dough for the base and the sauce to be spread on the pizza base was already prepared to save the time.  Also, the veggies were grilled beforehand to save the time. So, with Chef Melvin’s help we prepared a Veg Pizza using the buffalo mozeralla and then we prepared the pizza using the Weber Pizza Grill.

Whilst, the pizza was getting ready, I tried my hands on grilling the paneer and chicken as well.

Chef Melvin also instructed us on how to light the charcoal to be used in the grilling method of cooking.

Hearty Home Made Bengali Food at Chatpata Bong, Dwarka

0

Bengali cuisine is famous across India with its famous sea food and other dishes which are mainly cooked in the mustard oil which brings an amazing flavour to the food. So to bring that authentic bengali flavour, restraunts need to understand the real flavour of bengal very well and thats what we liked about Chatpata Bong as the founder duo Husband-Wife are bengalis and they cook each and everything themselves and know each and everything about their food.

Chatpata Bong, Home Made Food Feels like heaven

The best part about Chatpata Bong is, All the food being served to the people here are Home-Made!

Review: Q Bar- The Quarter Club at VITS Hotel, Mumbai

0

As a Customer, We generally see various kinds of restaurants and cafes being opened in our neighbourhood, some are very much unique of a kind and some are way too simple. It’s rare to find something really perfect, thats what exactly came our way when we found Q Bar – The Quarter Club which is inside VITS Hotel, a 5-Star Property in the Marol area of Mumbai very much close to Mumbai Airport.

Well, I have never heard of its name before and the reason becomes obvious when their Manager Mr. Aloy Lobo explained that it has been rebranded 2 months back. Back then, It was with the name of Jalsa Bar but its current form is especially gratifying, ensconced in a shadowy space close to the pool

Q Bar basically has a very interesting club membership concept where in for just mere INR 1000, a Person can get a six month membership where in half of the amount can be redeemed on the first visit itself. Club Membership users can also enjoy slashed rates on food and beverages with atleast a INR 100 lesser than the general rate and also gets a mezze platter that is complimentary with their orders.

Another reason to come to Q Bar, besides beverages, the outstanding food, ambience and the service are the theme based festivals every month. In addition to that they have something going on every day of the week like ladies night or corporates night.

We came here on a thursday evening, and got welcomed by their Manager, Mr Aloy Lobo and their Executive Chef Mr Stephen. We asked them for their best dishes and then started trying out their dishes one by one. We loved their overall service, as they were very quick in bringing the dishes on our table and after we are done with it, they used to come and take our valuable feedback on the same. That was very much appreciable.

Now Let’s talk about the main part of this article, The FOOD!

Panko Cheese Poppers:

Review: Newly launched Smoke, Fire and Spice Menu at Hard Rock Cafe

0

Hard Rock Cafe launches a whole new menu named; Smoke, Fire and Spice Menu which was launched few weeks back worldwide. The menu got inspired by the spices, sauces and the seasonings of the famous street food around the globe including countries like Asia, Africa and Latin America.

We got to try their newly launched menu few days back and thought to write about the same.

In the Smoke, Fire and Spice Menu they had Veg/Non Veg Sizzlers and Platters along with Choice of Sauces. In drinks they had a lot of cocktails which were actually a blend of rum. We tried out a few sip of their shots before ordering the right one for us.

Lets talk about the food first.

(L to R) : tSatay Chicken Kebab, Charmoula Chicken Kebab, Chipotle Chicken Kebab, Chimichurri Chicken Kebab, Peri Peri Chicken Kebab and Harissa Chicken Kebab
(L to R) : Satay Chicken Kebab, Charmoula Chicken Kebab, Chipotle Chicken Kebab, Chimichurri Chicken Kebab, Peri Peri Chicken Kebab and Harissa Chicken Kebab

The Picture you see above, is what exactly a non-veg platter is. It consists of 6 Chicken Kebabs all in different sauces viz. Satay, Charmoula, Chipotle, Chimichurri, Peri Peri and Harissa.

Talking about these sauces now:-

Satay is an Asian Barbecue flavour sauce having sweet and savory duet of soy, peanut and ginger.

Charmoula Sauce is basically a little flavour dance of cilantro, garlic, lemon and a shake of red pepper.

Chipotle Sauce comes with an all-out flavour kick of chipotle peppers, onions and garlic.

Chimichurri Sauce is basically a blend of garlic and cilantro hence proudly known as Argentina’s National Condiment.

Piri Piri Sauce is a deeply flavoured sauce made with birds eye chilli, garlic and citrus notes

Harissa Sauce is an all out spice kick with a hint of caraway and cumin.

 

We tried all the Chicken Kebabs and truly liked a few ones like Charmoula, Chimichurri and Harissa Sauce. If you ever come to Hard Rock Cafe you should definitely try them out.

 

Next in we tried out Different Rum Shots as displayed in the picture below.

Triple Threat, Scorpion, Rikki Tikki Tavi, Trip to hell and Sangria Rosa Shots
(L to R) : Triple Threat, Scorpion, Rikki Tikki Tavi, Trip to hell and Sangria Rosa Shots

 

  1. Triple Threat Cocktail – This Cocktail was a blend of three rums, grenadine and grog mix mellowed with orange juice, which is served for 2 people just because of the fact that it hits you high quickly.
  2. Scorpion Cocktail – This Cocktail is also available for 2 people at once, which is a lethal sting of rums, brandy and fruit juices with a whisper of almonds.
  3. Rikki Tikki Tavi Cocktail – Available for 2 people, is a mixture of light and aromatic rums, orange liquor, grenadine, pineapple juice and a splash of fresh lime.
  4. Trip To Hell Cocktail – Its a potent blend of light and dark rums, brandy and almond mixed with orange juice.
  5. Sangria Rosa Cocktail – Its a generous pour of Rose Wine, Bacardi Rum, Orange Liquor, Sangria Mix topped with Strawberry, blueberry and lime.

    (L to R) : Paradise Punch, Shocking Shandy and Tiki Taka Grob Shots

  7. Shocking Shandy Cocktail – Its a mixture of Bacardi Rum, Orange Liquor, Hard Rock Lemonade topped with beer.
  8. Tiki Taka Grog Cocktail – Its a delightful blend of light, gold and dark rum, grog mix and lime.
