Jamshedpur, July 21: Fortune Hotel Centre Point will sizzle both the tongue and the taste bud this monsoon.
The city hotel has decided to celebrate the rainy season with gourmet meals and serve them sizzling hot in its 10-day-long Monsoon Sizzler Festival.
On offer there are mouth-watering delicacies such as sizzling seafood brochetti and tandoori pompret sizzler.
For those uninitiated, a sizzler is a complete meal served on a wooden and metal platter covered with a cabbage leaf which prevents the food from getting burnt.
“Sizzlers travel directly from the oven to the table. The smoke and the sizzling sound add to a diner’s experience. It is a perfect fare on a rainy day. Unlike other meals, sizzlers do not get cold quickly and remain as hot till the last morsel has been consumed,” said Asish Bose, the chef from Calcutta who would be responsible for the festival.
At the hotel restaurant, Spice Kitchen, gourmets can dig into Chinese, Indian and Mediterranean sizzlers.
Non-vegetarians can have their fill with chicken steak sizzler (chicken grilled and served with boiled vegetable and herbs rice), chilly garlic chicken sizzler served with vegetable fried rice and salad, chicken 65 sizzler or tandoori chicken mussallam sizzler.
For the veggies, the hotel has chilly paneer sizzler served with hakka noodles or naan with stuffed parwal and B.B.Q. mushroom sizzler to chose from.
To complete the sizzling experience, the hotel will serve chocolate fudge sizzlers, brownie and mango fire and ice as desserts.
“Sizzler is a continental dish that will draw the city’s foodies as they love to try out new things. I hope people love what we are offering,” said Rajiv Walia, the general manager of Fortune Hotel Centre Point.
Prices would start from Rs 90 (for the desserts) and go up to Rs 300 for a non-vegetarian platter.
