“Enjoy your food, enjoy your life”- Victoria Moran
As you wanderlust for that perfect moment, you find it sometimes right in your plate. Man, has been made in such a way, that he connects a lot of his feeling with food. Think about it…if he’s happy, he celebrates with food; if he’s sad, he binges on it.
I, was extremely happy to have found maybe; pardon my ignorance, the perfect plate of vegetarian grub at “Tijori”.
About Tijori :
Tijori, is a fine dining restaurant at Radisson Blu Atria. Very true to its name, it holds the treasures of ambrosia within it. The cuisine is mainly North Indian and there are inclusions of some South Indian elements as well.
Ambiance & Decor :
The decor is a beautiful backdrop for a perfect romantic date. The music, the candles & the touches of bling make this just about right. You must visit this, for dinners as the real beauty of the blossoms then. The lighting is done in soft purple pink hues, a faux pebbled path takes you to the dining section.
Ambiance is just so relaxing, that you literally need to walk yourself out unwillingly.
The staff are well trained to handle your queries about what’s on your plate and are pleasing in their demeanour. They are nimble on their feet & try to help you enjoy your meal, with whatever they can help you with.
The Grub Story :
- Ananas & Mirchi Tini Mocktail : I, must say this was one of those mind blowing mocktails, ever. The spicing up of the pineapple based drink with green chillies was just bang on.
- Hare Matar Ki Tikki : A melange of green peas mash stuffed with dry fruits & cheese, made into rounds and cooked on a griddle. This was accompanied with a tangy mango & mustard chutney, which reinvented tikkis & their pairings.
- Masala Paniyaram : Rice dumplings with South Indian tempering, served with tomato chutney.
- Tadka Wali Dahi : Another one of their specialities, which had me salivating at the unique flavour profile of sweet n spicy by the onion, tomato, garlic & curry leaf tempering.
- Bhindi Palak Bhurjee : The marrying of okra with spinach, was just out of the world. The creaminess of spinach and flavour bursts of okra, had me hooked. This is something that You mustn’t miss!
- Boondi Paan Baked Yoghurt : What I loved about this dessert was the infusion of Paan aka betel leaf without the Paan being overwhelming. Paan, over here was adding another dimension to the flavour. Very well executed.
Verdict : I, must say as a vegetarian who is always on a lookout for the perfect heart warming meal, I have found the place. The flavours at “Tijori”, are subtle and very harmonious.
