We were invited at the re-launch of Millennium Plaza Hotel’s Themed Nights in their Metro Cuisine Restaurant. Themed nights will feature array of food from Southeast Asia and Indian cuisines.
Although Indian cuisine is widely available in Dubai and one of my closest friends is from Kerala – we always stick to the familiar food when dining out. My idea of Indian food is limited to papadams, buttered chicken, naan, dosa and Kerala style veggie stew.
We were spoilt with choices from appetizers to desserts – the buffet had live pakora and chaat stations. We browsed through the food choices and to my surprise no sight of buttered chicken! I asked our pleasant waiter Shajeev if there was indeed no buttered chicken in the menu and he said there was none. He suggested that I try the lamb and chicken curry instead.
I started my night with several greens and mussels appetizer. Daddy C already telling me that he is enjoying the lamb curry – a surprise since he’s not a big lamb eater.
I’m a seafood lover thus among the three mains I had, my favorite is the Seafood Goan Curry – just enough heat that even LittleMan V asked for several bites.
Chef Naresh patiently explained to LittleMan V what a chat station is – a savory road side snack from food stalls. Surprisingly when we asked if he wanted to try some, he agreed but requested that Chef Naresh leave out onions and tomato on his chaat snack.
He enjoyed every bite that he asked if he can go get some more.
Before we left he had his photo taken with his new friends Chef Naresh and Shajeev.
We ended the night with several scoops of Pistachios Kulfi Ice Cream (V was asking if we can buy a tub of the same flavor to bring back home). I also enjoyed Rasmalai which I found compliments well with the ice cream.
I’m happy to say that my Indian food craving now goes beyond Buttered Chicken.
