Sea food lovers, this one is for you! Trident, Bandra Kurla is hosting a Coastal Food Festival called Coast To Coast at their restaurant O22. An extensive buffet spread with an array of delicacies from various coastal regions across India.
We started our meal with the welcome drink, a refreshing blend of Ginger, Lemon and Honey served in a mini matka. The buffet had a live counter where you could choose your fish and the chef would prepare it for you right then. We tried an assortment of seared fish wrapped in a leaf and prawns. Perfectly cooked and delicately spiced, we were already impressed with the food!
Next we moved on to the buffet spread, there was a Farsan Counter, a Pickle and salad counter with some great variations like the Nilgiri Jhinga Salad, Chicken Pakora Salad, Chettinad Paneer Salad and more. The Amrood ki Chutney and the South Indian Pickle were also worth a try.
In the mains, we absolutely loved the Malabar Lamb Biryani – succulent lamb pieces in a flavourful biryani and the Crab Xacuti – crab cooked in a spicy gravy. There were plenty of choices for vegetarians as well like the Badi Choora – a staple Oriya meal with dried lentils mixed with garlic and chopped veggies.
Coming to the desserts, there was Payesh, Kala Jamun, Ras Malai, Macarons, Panna Cotta and some cakes. The Ras Malai and Macarons with a Truffle were on top of our list followed by the rest.
The Coast To Coast Festival is priced at 1975+Tax per person and the menu is rotational. The same menu gets repeated every 6 days.
Overall, this one is a must try for all the coastal food fans!
