The small little happiness in life resides with the simple things we love the most. Getting up, getting ready, setting your hair for almost half an hour just to visit a well-established and rather expensive restaurant is something we strangely avoid to enjoy the simple food that brings happiness back in our lives by taking us back to the days when things were simple yet delightful.
Ironically it was Taj Dera that was able to deliver on that premise. The baisakhi food festival at Taj Dera invoked that feeling of being able to enjoy food with the comfort of tasting all that you love.
Starting from the ambience which reminds you that you're back in the streets trying out food as you go; yet there still is an uptown feel about it. It's looks pretty and tasteful. I can even imagine myself going on a date there just soaking the goodness there was.
Since it was a baisakhi food festival, you would find everything there that made baisakhi great. Including the delicacies from mailnly the North end of India.
Jumping quickly to the special live food counters because it was everything I love about food! Seeing the food being cooked live, as you see it teasing you with the aroma... There's nothing better than that!
I hogged down on lassi, gola, Chaat, gur, ganne ka juice and my mouth is watering as I am writing this. It was delicious and much more! The chefs did a really good job in enhancing the already perfect dishes and drinks!
The snacks like always are meant to be had in abundance and I left nothing to chance. The perfect chakhna snacks like the fish tikka, chicken Tikka, mutton kebab, veg kebab, paneer tikka were all beautifully done. It was smiles all around. They all tasted beautiful and since I'm by default a paneer lover, it wins in my book.
The salads and the main course was next next and they literally saved the best for the last. The live counter for veg and non veg dishes was for me the highlight of the evening. Great presentation, great food. Veg and non veg biryanis and the murg makhni made us eat the non veg down to the very bones! It was insanely good!
As Desserts we were brought Faluda, rabri, malpua and we ended the night with a neat paan. They just know how to squeeze the word perfect out of you. It is how I love my food sessions to end. It's perfect down there. I would recommend everyone to try the Taj Dera!
