What: Smoked Wood, a sizzler festival

Where: Hotel Capitol Hill in Ranchi

When: On till September 22

If you are tired of the near-incessant rains, here’s something to put the sizzle back into your life. Yellow Sapphire, the restaurant at Hotel Capitol Hill on Mahatma Gandhi Road, is hosting a sizzler festival, Smoked Wood, till September 22. Besides its strong vegetarian, non-vegetarian and seafood line-up, even desserts will show up as sizzlers

The Décor: Adorned with Egyptian-styled masks and tiny red triangular lamp sheds, the restaurant evokes mystery

On offer: Carnivores can choose (warning: it will be a hard decision to make) from crab peri peri, prawn caldeen, kali mirch ka mahi tikka in the Indian section.

The continental varieties include frito fish sun-dried, grilled chicken zingarella, while the Chinese spread includes Singaporean Chicken Rolard.

For the veg brigade, there are delectable options like wok roasted cottage cheese, a Chinese dish, vegetable steak cordon in continental style and our very own dhania matar ki tikki.

End your meal with a sizzling dessert like the sinful butter scotch chocolada or tiramisu. Say goodbye to your diet!

Pocket pinch: The vegetarian sizzlers come for Rs 250, while the non-veg ones cost around Rs 300. Guests will have to shell out Rs 100 more to taste the hot desserts. However, if you plan to go for prawn or crab, be ready to shell out some more. For, if you order prawn or crab, your bill will shoot up to Rs 700 or Rs 500, respectively. Taxes are extra, but pleasure has its price

HostspeakWe have brought fresh lobsters, crabs and prawns from Calcutta and Mumbai. For the seafood preparations, we have specially got spices from Goa. We promise to offer the best sizzlers in the city. Our guests have already had a similar experience last year.
