Tara at Roseate House

Tara, Roseate House‘s new restaurant is all about indulgence of the tastebuds and your eyes. Located next to the infinity pool of the hotel, this Japanese eatery headed by Head Chef Paul John Abayan dishes out some amazing Japanese delicacies.
Me and a friend decided to try this much talked about restaurant, and see what the fuss is all about.
We started our meal with the Longest Sunset, which was an amazing drink – perfect to bring the spring in! It was a perfect mix of orange, lime, pumpkin and white peach, followed by Apple Tease and Devil’s Tongue. The Apple Tease had a fruity texture and was a mix of earl grey tea, jasmine, vanilla and green apple. The Devil’s Tongue was an absolute delight. It is named after the blood red colour which is made of beetroot pure, ginger, jaggery and ginger ale.

The Fried Calamari and the Shrimp Popcorn were amazing. One has to order these while at Tara. The Calamari was fried to the right temperature and went really well with the Tartar Sauce. On the other hand, Shrimp Popcorn was light and flavourful. The popcorn was seasoned with Yuzu salt which gave it a extra punch, making it the right choice for an appetiser.
Being a Japanese restaurant, we had to try the Sushi and the Chef did a great job with it. We ordered in the Chicken Maki Sushi and it was a wonderful preparation.
For the main course, we tried the Grilled Lobster and Salmon Teriyaki. The Lobster was made with shizo pens butter which gave it a rich texture. The  lobster tasted fresh and the flavours of butter blended well with the meat. The Salmon Teriyaki had a great portion size and the fillet was served with a portion of rice. The Salmon had been cooked in Teriyaki sauce which gave it a sweet taste. The main course were definitely a huge hit!
Moving on to the desserts, we ordered the Ancient Cheesecake which had a garnishing of raspberries. The cheesecake appeared to be a little dry, and I have had better ones. On the other hand, the other dessert was The Black Hole. It was as sinful as it can get. The chocolate slice was served with a scoop of caramel ice cream and dresses in lots of chocolate sauce, making it the right way to finish off such a grand meal.
Tara definitely deserves a star as it stands true to it’s name. I can’t wait to go back and indulge myself in another treat at this restaurant.

Royal China

Royal China boasts of excellence in terms of food and service. Located on the 16th floor of the Eros Tower at Nehru Place, the restaurant is about all things royal. An afternoon brunch with the family, led me to try out the restaurant.

Royal China offers an amazing view of the city’s skyline giving you the ultimate meal with a view goal. The menu is elaborate and if you live for Chinese food like me, then this place is for you.

My favorites from the meal were:

  1. Chicken and Prawn Dimsums

These were delicious and the mixing of meats worked well. The outer coating was light and thin, and the stuffing was      perfectly spiced. You have to try them out if you love dimsums.

2. Salt and Pepper Prawns

This one was my favourite- the crispy prawns had been tossed in a spicy sauce leading to a perfect amalgamation of flavors. The garnishing of chopped spring onions and chillies blended the dish well.

3. Chicken in Black Bean Sauce

The dish had tender chicken pieces which had been stir fried with black beans giving it a wonderful taste. The sauce had a strong flavor which went really well with fried rice.

4. Sesame Noodles

There was something comforting about this bowl of noodles. Tossed in a wok with onions and garnished with sesame seeds to give it a crunchy taste, these noodles were delicious and different from what I have tasted earlier.

The service at Royal China is top of the line and the servers will assist you on what to order. If you just want to go for dimsums, the restaurant also offers a Dimsum brunch on Sunday with unlimited dimsums to gorge on .
