Gurugram which has become a fine food capital now is a heaven for foodies. Whatever your taste is, Gurugram has a table to suit. Wanted to have a perfect lunch with a friend we visited restaurant Mosaic, Country Inn & Suites in Sector 29, Gurugram. Courteously welcomed in the busy restaurant we somehow managed to get a table for us. It is well let fine dine restaurant with a seating of around 70 people including the bar section. The interiors are quite cozy and soothing.
Soon we got a chance to meet Chef Gautam who explained us how their food menu is being curated with a focus on driving UN’s Chef’s Manifesto by working closely with farmers to produce sustainable food with the usage of seasonal and local ingredients.
In anticipation of trying something new we left our food choice on him for his specially done dishes with all the twist using seasonal ingredients.
Our food journey began with Amaranth Lavoush with Green Peas Hummus, Smoked Baigan Bharta and Achaari Dahi. All the dips here were very tasty specially the achari dahi which we completed to the bottom. Moong Dal Chokha Tacos was something which we’ll not find anywhere else, very well stuffed with Moong daal and chokha(from litti chokha). Green Chholia aur Roasted Chana Chaat is something which is extremely nutritious and tasty as well.
Soon after this we were served with Pesto Grilled Chicken with Basil Mayo dip, Kuti Mirch Ka Fish Tikka, Harissa Fish Satay, Jalapeno and Olive Sigri Murg, Chutney wale Paneer Tikka with Imli Pudina Chutney, Galauti Kebab, Cheese and Bellpepper Cigar Roll with Sweet Chilli Sauce, Millet and pepper salad and Soup – Kali Chana ka Cappuccino with Homemade Chana Jor Garam. It may seem to be a long list but trust us we ate everything as everything was so yummylicious. Specially to mention Galauti kebab were so authentically cooked they took us to nawabi Lucknow.
There was a special Ber raita served where Chef has lot of story to say like while making taste Ber Raita he narrates the importance of ber in our food and culture. He even takes to you Sabri’s ber story of Ramayana ..
For our main Course we tried again different but delicious Sem Phali aur Aloo Bhaja, Bathuwa Murg, Home Style Mutton Curry, Dal Mosaic (Makhni), Flavoured Rice /Plain Rice with breads. Everything was made to perfection and was finger licking. Specially Dal Makhani which is based on slow cooking was very much similar to Dal Bukhara.
Apart from the delectable food we were served with their signature mocktails which were again specially derived by Mr Manjit Kumar Gole.
We were served the following mocktails :
Strangler (Orange and Mirchi Ka Achaar)
Guava Ginger Mary
Mango Basil Sin
Pictures in themselves show how delicious these mocktails were:
We finally ended our food journey we the special Cutting tea which we all love by heart.
