Missed out on all the tasty fun during the holy month of Shravan? Head to Hotel Capitol Residency and Hotel Chanakya BNR in the state capital to make the most of your non-veg days.
Both are organising a 10-day food festival, starting from Friday.
While Hotel Capitol Residency’s restaurant Melange will serve mouth-watering Indian cuisine in buffet as part of Jewels of India, the Mexi-Italian Food Festival at Hotel Chanakya BNR will offer 10 different varieties of Italian and an equal number of Mexican delicacies, in a la carte form.
Jewels of India is being organised for the sixth consecutive year, cooking up a storm with dishes right from the snow-clad mountain regions of Kashmir in the north to coastal Kerala in the south, from the Bay of Bengal in the east to Rajasthan in the west.
Ravinder Singh, president, Capitol Hotels, said this year, they were stressing on tapping traditional dishes that are popular among Indians residing in countries like Mauritius, Fiji and South Africa.
“The major attractions are the famous dholl puri of Mauritius, jambalaya of West Indies, sea food biryani of Fiji Indians and bunny chow from South Africa,” he said.
For local flavour, Jharkhandi items like dhuska, litti choka and dehati chicken will be part of the platter.
The buffet is priced at Rs 525 plus taxes per person.
On the other hand, Dharmbir Kumar, assistant food and beverage manager of Hotel BNR Chanakya, said the good response their Italian food festival received last year prompted them to organise a similar treat this year, with Mexican food as added attraction.
“We were waiting for Shravan festival to get over as many abstain from non-vegetarian foods during the holy month. Both Italian and Mexican dishes are being prepared by Calcutta-based chef Swaroop Roy and our hotel chef Pinaki Mishra,” Kumar added.
“Our prices start from Rs 100 (soup) and goes up to Rs 650 (red snapper),” Kumar said.
At both the places, dinner starts from 7 pm onwards. Hurry to book seats in advance.
