Food at Punjab Grill Tappa, Cyber Hub:
At Punjab Grill Tappa, Cyber Hub the things tasted were:
A fusion Navratri Thali which comprised of Sabudana Pilaf, Samak Rice Sushi, Arbi Satay, Roasted Pumpin, Kuttu ki Puri, Fresh Fruits, Chickoo Shrikhand, & Iced Tea Thandai.
Sabudana Pilaf: Pilaf which is generally made of rice here it was replaced by Sabudana in this fast special platter. The pilaf at Punjab Grill Tappa, Cyber Hub had subtle flavors resembling Sabudana khichdi which is generally eaten during fasting days in India.
Samak Rice Sushi: Samak Rice is not exactly a variety of rice but it is rather a fruit from the grass that grows alongside rice in the paddy fields. it is a very healthy substitute for rice and can be eaten in all types of fast. The Sushi’s made of Samak rice were filling and less to medium spicy.
Roasted Pumpkin Sabzi and Kuttu Puri are the conventionally eaten fasting foods and they were really good.
The Iced Tea Thandai is a standout refreshing drink which is a must have when at Punjab Grill Tappa, Cyber Hub.
Arbi Satays were basically yummy Arbi Kababs presented in Satay style.
Apart from the Navratri Thali which was available only for a limited period, the other dishes tasted from the regular menu were:
Tandoori Norwegian Salmon, Fish Tikka Ajwaini for starters. Fish Tikka Ajwaini hails from Amritsar where fish is marinated in a spicy marinade consisting of Ajwain. While the fusion starter of Tandoori Norwegian Salmon had hints of Saffron and Dill seeds. Both were equally good and had clear flavors of its ingredients in every bite.
Apart from this Aloo Prunes Chaat, Paneer Cigar and Aam Papad & Lettuce Leaf wrapped Kurkuri were also tasted.
Aloo Prunes Chat has a sweet and tangy taste which so good. No one can have just one! While the Paneer Cigar Rolls had a similar taste like Paneer tikka which was okay, not really awesome.
The Aam Papad and lettuce leaf wrapped Kurkuri was another milestone dish. This starter has a perfect balance of tanginess derived fro Aam Papad and Lettuce leaf that has subtle flavors while the core part is crunchy! A must try dish!
I will give its food a 4/5 rating.
