Grilling it further

At this grills and beer promotion. We enjoyed it, read on why

While the entire city was rushing in festive frenzy, last evening I was driving away from it. My destination was Radisson Blu MBD in Noida, which has come up with 'Grills and Thrills' -- a new promotion. It seemed tempting. The offering included grills along with a bucket of domestic beer. It seemed tempting, more so since I was on a diet and grills are quite a healthy option, I thought. And I will skip the beer, I made a mental note. The grills are a part of the buffet at their restaurant on the ground floor as I figured out once I sat down and made myself comfortable.

The restaurant is quite basic, with the plush comforts that a star-rated property offers. For a weekday night, the place was quite full. There were families and couples and even groups of friends dropping in for a good meal.

I opted for a mocktail as I scanned the menu. It was not very extensive, but with both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options, you can make quite a meal out of it. The drink, which was a mix of watermelon and mint leaves, was quite refreshing and eased my guilt trip. I ordered a Jerk chicken (merely for the name which sounded interesting) which was served with spicy jerk sauce. While the sauce wasn't as spicy as spicy should be, the chicken was tender and cooked well. I teamed this with baked potato with sour cream which was just about okay (they have gone a little low on the sour cream) and some very nicely cooked Cumin crusted lamb escalopes.

One can also opt for sausages (both chicken and pork are available) or Chilli prawns in case you are a
non-vegetarian. There are quite a few options for vegetarians too, like Herb polenta cakes, Sweet potato with lemon and chilli oil, Char grill vegetable, Baked potato with sour cream. I rounded off my meal with an anti-oxidant rich green tea, happy that I kept my promise.
