Hilton Garden Inn Gurgaon – Kerala food festival

Call it stereotypical North Indian, but we can simply not distinguish between the cuisines from down south. In an attempt to try something new, we headed to the Glass House at Hilton Gurgaon for their Kerala food festival. We absolutely had no idea about how the food will taste from God’s own country hence we asked chef Ashok Eapen who is the executive Chef at Hilton Garden Inn, Trivandrum. Our intriguing chat with the chef acquainted us with the different communities and their respective cuisines in Kerala; how their food differs from each other and what and what not used while preparing the food.

Where to goBani Square, Sector 50, Gurgaon

Whom to go with – Friends, family, business partners

How to get there – The nearest metro station is Huda City Centre, from there you can take an auto/cab.

What to order
            Appetizer – Glass house is a multi-cuisine restaurant so you can order appetizer as per your choices. Though our focus was on the buffet and I recommend trying the same to get the most of Kerala.

·        Nadan Kozhi Roast (NV) – Fish roasted with herbs and spices, very tender and cooked till perfection
·        Meen Mulagittathu(NV) – Fish curry prepared in light coconut gravy
·        Moplah Mutton Chap(NV) – Mutton cooked in red curry with coconut, very tender and tasted wonderful
·        Vegetable Thoran(V) – It was a dish from Brahmin community which is on the verge of extinct. Very simple banana curry made in coconut paste. It was a combination of sweet and salty.

Deserts –
·        Pista Burfi
·        Baked Cheesecake with strawberry compote
·        Cherry Crumble
·        Rasbhari
·        Sugar free cheese cream with fresh fruit
·        Elaneer payasam
·        Malabar Halwa
·        Passion fruit mousse
·        Mango tart
·        Chocolate truffle
Must try – Elaneer payasam and Malabar Halwa

Cost for 2 – Rs 3000 approx.

What we reviewed – This place has everything what you may look from a four star property. The ambiance was changed to keep up the tradition and cultural value of the state. Being a novice in Kerala cuisine, the chef’s guidance certainly helped us to understand the food and the logic behind various ways of cooking. Along with the main course they too had a very large scale desert counter, featuring some local and international deserts.
Glass house is not limited to food festivals, hence you can head there anytime for lunch, dinner or a scrumptious Sunday brunch.
