With the International theme nights at the Pullman Hotel, it was great to know that have introduced an Indian theme night as well. We were invited for this theme night called the “Art of Spice”. Celebrity Chef Sweety Singh has been onboarded for this to bring in a very home cooked food experience.
What we were told about this buffet that really amazed us was that all the food is slow cooked and made fresh for the buffet without any readymade mix.
I did no justice to this buffet as I did not eat from across the spread. The review here covers the dishes that I tasted and enjoyed.
The spread was lavish. There is a live cooking station as well where kababs and meat were being prepared. There is a chaat counter, a huge spread of salads, a decent spread of mains and a lavish spread of desserts.
For the drinks, there was a special Kesari Lassi and Jeera Lassi. I enjoyed the Kesari Lassi much.Next, I tried the Tamatar Dhaniya da shorba which was decent.
In the Non veg starters, I tried the Machi di seekh and the Kukkad anari tikka.In the Veg starters I tried the Lahori Paneer Tikka. The starters tasted great and were being replenished regularly.
For the Main course, I tried the Saag Paneer, Amritsari maa makhni, Kadi Pakoda, Amritsari Cholley and the Sarson da saag in the vegetarian dishes. In the Non veg I had the Kukkad makhan wala and the Jheenga masale de naal with the rice – both the meat wale chawal and the matar wale chawal. I missed out eating the breads. I thoroughly enjoyed the Amritsar Cholley and the Jheenga masale. The Amritsari maa makhni has a very simple taste and is flavourful.
For the desserts, I enjoyed the Kesari kheer and the Gulab Juman. With these I also had the international spread of desserts and enjoyed the Chocolate mousse the most. The most unique tasting dish was the Meat Halwa. This is one of the amazing creation of Chef Sweety Singh and I should say that he has got it absolutely right.
This is a definite recommendation for people who would love to try slow cooked, home food tasting amazing Indian food. You could enjoy all the food and still feel light…the benefit of the way the food is cooked.
Thank you Vanessa and team for having us over. It was indeed a pleasure to meet Chef Sweety Singh who is so great at what he does and is such a humble soul.
