Being the foodie I am, I always like to dine out in a good restaurant from time to time. Although a place like New Delhi which keeps spoiling you for choice with the increasing number of restaurants mushrooming on a regular basis, there are only a few that leave a mark. There are only a few which make you feel as if you have had fed your soul. Well, Tashan is GK 2 M-block market is one such place for sure.
Starting with the restaurant's ambiance, there's not much to it, but there's a subtle feeling of class when you enter the place. And the same amount of class is maintained in the kind of plating they offer in every food they serve at the table. I remember a famous author once mention in his book that how a food tastes often depends upon how it looks. Well, the food served at Tashan look as delectable as they are.
Be it the non-vegetarian dishes or the vegetarian, the starters or the main course, my experience says that they just don't go wrong. The spices are in perfect balance, while the flavour in every dish leaves a beautiful aftertaste.'
What I liked the most about the food here is the chef's own twist given to every single dish that was served. The Mushroom Galawati Kebab, for instance, tasted better than any non-vegetarian kebab I have ever had. And I am not exaggerating even a bit. My other favourite was the Bhuni Roti ka Halwa -- superb is the word I would like to use for it. I can visit this place again and again just to have these two things. Talking about the rest of the things that were served, each and every dish made me feel like leaving the serving plate licked and clean.
I would like to mention about the restaurant Head Chef Jatin Kapur over here, because he is the man who creates all the magic back in the kitchen for his guests. Apart from the stunning flavours he is capable of offering, what makes this chef a magnanimous fellow in my opinion was his inspirational journey of transforming himself from an obese person to the fit and handsome guy he is now. He is an inspiration to say the least.
I would love to visit this place for a meal every weekend if possible. Kudos to Team Tashan!
