From lip smacking street food at Khao Gali at the Lobby Lounge, to Valentine’s Day specials at The Gourmet Store and finally to the recently launched Hotpot and barbecue menus at China House, the Grand Hyatt Mumbai treated us to a full-fledged palatable affair over the weekend!
Khao Galli Specials at Lobby Lounge
Giving you a glimpse into Mumbai’s famous street food, the Khao Gali has been launched at the Lobby Lounge keeping in mind its social and cultural aspects. Available through the month of February, specials on the menu include – a street food station (dahi vada, pani puri, ragda pattiss, sev puri), Bun Maska with masala chai, Frankies, Masala Papad, Pav Bhaji, Missal pav, Vada Pav, Bhaji pav, Bread pakoda, and Falooda and Mewad Kulfi for dessert. That menu has me salivating!
~ All you need is love.. but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt!~
The Gourmet Store at the Grand Hyatt is celebrating the season of love with a thoughtfully crafted array of special offerings and exquisite gourmet preparations like the Strawberry heart cake, Valentine bitter chocolate cake, Red velvet slice, Linzer eye heart cookies, Valentine cupcakes, macaroons, the exclusive Jar of love and assorted praline and truffles. One look at these and I knew I had found true love. The passionfruit and mango pralines were my favourite. Unfortunately most of the other desserts contained egg so all I could do was lust.. sigh..
Hot Pot & Barbecue Nights at China House
China House, one of the best Asian food restaurants in the city now offers Chinese Hot Pot with a fiery Chinese Barbecue specially crafted by Chef Xiang Bin Li and his team. The Hot Pot is a traditional Chinese way of preparing food directly at the dining table. A pot filled with simmering spicy stock is placed at the center of the table, and surrounded by different ingredients (meats and veggies). The ingredients are then added to the stock for a few minutes to cook and served individually. You can then choose from peanut butter, garlic and hot and sweet sauces to compliment your hot pot. The vegetarian ingredients included mushrooms, broccoli, lettuce, tofu, glass noodles and flat noodles. Chef Li also has an array of traditional smoky siu mei, barbecued meats and/or veggies (mushrooms, potatoes, tofu, lotus root, arum) cooked to perfection in a barbecue, chilli garlic, black pepper and mala sauce.
The cherry on top is this stunning setting of the outdoor pagodas. Book your table at the earliest as Mumbai’s winter slowly bids us adieu this month!
