Recently visited Food Nirvana it’s one of the better vegetarian place to dine with family and friends. Food was good , service was prompt and ambience was decent. The variety makes the place unique. You could enjoy both north indian as well as Indianised versions of continental cuisine. We can enjoy Italian, Oriental and North Indian. The food is priced at a premium, but the quality and taste is pretty much matched. Here my food Nirvana journey starts.. We started with
The traditional! yet not so traditional way, to start your meal. The CURRIEDCREME soup will sooth and clear your minds off with its mesmerizing taste and is beautifully set with coriander leaves dressed upon it. This is by far the best soup I’ve ever tried. So don’t miss out on this one
TANDOORI PLATTER :
Moving on to the best segment of the restaurant, the starters! With the smoking hot and mouth watering tandoori items served like, spicy paneer slices, Fried Potato balls and served with Mint and mustard chutnies respectively.
This platter is also one of the musts and you can definitely ask for more varieties of chutney to enhance the taste!
Cream Jamun spicy potato :
The dish as the name suggests is one of the most unique combinations I’ve ever come through! It comes wonderfully with fried and crispy potato topped with awesome spicy chipotle making it one hell of an experience. All the potato lovers will love this one to the last bits!
Chilli Garlic Lotus stem:
Moving On, to one of. The most exotic dishes of the restaurant, where the homegrown sweet lotus stems are cut into slices and deep-fried to crisps.
This tangy-spicy tale tastes even more hotter with the schezwan chilly sauce! This was one unforgettable taste!
Peri Peri Paneer :
This dish is one of the chef’s signature. Tossed in the Arabiano classic seasoning, the Peri Peri panner has a Spice- flavoured taste! With the softest of Paneer fried the sides of the cuboids to perfection! Making it look so so tasty.. This is by far the best in CHENNAI!
Well.. That’s was the starters section! It’s seriously one of the best on Chennai! Probably in the south!
I was honestly already half full.. And starters were even more seducing! on the menu!
Spicy Mexican Pasta Bake :
I was always a fan of Italian dishes! This dish made me forget where. I was, gave such an ethnic experience! Topped with melting cheese, red paprikaas, and soft pennes which were spicy and divine at the same time!
Being a north Indian, and not ending a meal with Rotis or naans? Not a chance!
after much consideration, we decided, to order three varieties of Naan!
I) Pudina Naan:
Who would decline the soft-doughed naans with the goodness of Pudina!
The leaves blend with Naan, and the taste that comes as a result! Is Mind-blowing.
II) Kashmiri Naan:
This is one of the exclusives of “Food Nirvana” with colourful sesame seeds embedded onto the soft naans, makes it a visual treat!
III) Choor Choor Naan:
This is one of the most innovative types of Naan, that I’ve ever come through! The name suggests it’s “crumbled-Naan” which is absolutely true! The taste is subject to variation as some are spicy, some are buttery and some are plain! Overall! I loved all the naans!
With the naans, being this impressive, the sidedishes with whom naans are eaten, should be great! Right?
We ordered the following Sabziz for our Naan!
I) Paneer Patiala:
The main reason for me, ordering this was for the eternal love for paneer! The Panner Patiala, though I expected it to be something spicy, but it didn’t and I also suggest the restaurant to add up some spice, and make this one legendary, else wise it was just perfect.
The smooth and fluffy panner tasted so good with Naan! Still my tonguebuds can feel It!
II) Veg. Kolapuri:
The Veg. Kolapuri, was again, something that preceeded my expectations and was good! There were so many vegetables mixed within, that it gave me homely feel! Yes again the same suggestion goes here, to make things spicy! On the whole, it did make the whole main course a memorable one!
Wait! There’s more! How can you end? Without something sweet?
Moving on to the desserts section! We were full to the neck! But the desserts were just so hard to ignore, so we just decided to go with some and tryout something!
I) Chocolate Delight:
Just like the image references, the pastry-like thing filled with cream and cocoa, with a hint of coffee cream! And sprinkled color sugar balls, to top it off, with a chocolate statue, just the perfect dish for any choc-lover!
Well, to be very honest, I just ordered it due to the fondness of its name! And I’ve been wanting to try that for a very long time! And I decided to go with it! To my surprise , it did come up to the level of my expectations! Made of creamy milk solids with gelatin added for the “jelly-like” feeling and topping it off with strawberry squash and some leaves, just paved the way for a perfect ending! It was perfect indeed, the levels of sweetness was on point!
।।।) Carrot Halwa:
It was up to the mark and we all really loved it ..
।V) Paan Ice:
It’s my favourite I have tasted at many places just wanted to try here so ordered and it was really so much delicious.
Alas, all is sweet when the end I’d sweeeeet! Hope you’ve enjoyed my experience! I’ve definitely loved! Sharing mine! 😉
Do try it out and have fun with your family!
