Hola my lovelies
How have you been? I know that you may feel I am taking long breaks between my posts. Actually, the last week has not been great in terms of health. First I had a minor injury below my left eye which left me in pain and then, even as I write this, I have fever L
Anyways, no worries. Last week, Hotel Renaissance Marriott Lucknow celebrated its second anniversary in the city. Must say, ever since Marriott entered Lucknow, it has changed the hospitality industry in the city of nawabs. Their dining facilities are really amazing, specially L-14 all day dining. And to commemorate the occasion, they have organized a food promotion titled “Marriott Around the World”
What makes this food festival special and a must try this weekend is that it has 8 different stations that bring you the best of world cuisine. So from Italian to Moroccan to Japanese to Indian Street to Awadhi, you will find everything that you wish to try and satiate your taste buds with. I had a chance to enjoy the fest with my bestie too and believe me people, each and every station is worth a try.
Presenting my deets on
Marriott Around The World
We started with the Japanese Sushi. Apart from the famous salmon and prawn nigri, there were vegetarian options like Vegetable makimono and Vegetable temaki. Must try, especially since India now is witnessing more Japanese presence.
My favourite, this one is a delight for all street food lovers. Perfect flavours and crispiness, this is definitely something not to be missed. Try from dishes like Pani Puri, Bhel,Ragda Patice, Sev Puri, Samosa Chaat, Kachori Chaat and Dahi Puri.
Another favourite of mine, with pasta varieties like Penne, spaghetti, macaroni, tortellini, ravioli, tagliatelle and sauces like Neapolitan, Alfredo, Pesto, Aglio Olio, Arrabiata and Puttanesca.
Now this was a delight for me. Rarely does one get good Mongolian food that tastes yum. Take your pick from Assorted vegetables, noodle, rice, hot garlic sauce, Soya sauce, and black bean sauce.
This has 5 non veg and 8 vegetarian options for all.
This is really interesting. Try the freshly made Nachos along with tomato salsa, pineapple salsa, sour cream, cheese dip or the super amazing bell pepper salsa.
BUFFET WITH SALAD BAR
Best of Indian food. This one has 4 veg and 4 non veg salads, dahi bhalla, masala lacha, Tandoori kukad, tawa machchhi, Kadhai gosht, chicken curry, gosht biryani, Chicken in black bean, sea food marinara, lamb shepherd’s pie.
A mix of vegetarian dishes from across the globe. This one offers Hot garlic noodles, Mushroom Fried Rice, stir fried vegetables, Angara paneer tikka, Lasagne, vegetable seek kebab, Potato au gratin, vegetable caponata, Palak kofta curry, Paneer Butter Masala, Hing Jeera Ke Aloo, Dal tadka, dal makhani, tawa sabz, Subz biryani and steam rice.
This was my and my bestie’s favourite. While I enjoyed Chocolate truffle pastry and Tiramisu, he enjoyed the Gulkand Kala Jamun and Kulfi. Other items include baked yoghurt, fruit custard, mahalabia fresh fruit and more.
Ambience – 5/5
Food – 4.9/5
Value for Money – 4.8/5
