Kakapo in Mehrauli has been a preferred hang-out for Delhiites because it opened however now, we’ve one thing new to stay up for. Kakapo is ready to transcend boundaries with a tasty journey throughout nations with the launch of its skilfully crafted international delicacies menu with pure and widespread palette of substances and strategies. Drawing inspiration from the varied and tantalising flavours of dishes from around the globe, the brand new menu guarantees to be a celebration of flavourful excellence.
Kakapo hosted a particular chef’s desk to offer us a sneak peek into the revamped menu with reimagined classics. Mr. Udit Bagga, Managing Director, Kakapo revealed how the menu has been curated drawing influences from everywhere in the world whereas conserving the palate of Indians in thoughts. In all probability that is why the Mushroo Har Gow dim sums had a spicy twist to go well with our desi palate. And let me admit, it was fairly a pleasant kick of the warmth.
However this isn’t the place our gastronomical journey began. It kicked off with a spherical of Amuse Buche – with a lightweight and refreshing serving of Salmon Carpaccio that was plated to perfection. The mixture of salmon and avocado is a winner, and it was seasoned excellent to make for the primary course and to enhance my equally tantalising French Fantasy cocktail. My favorite tequila was mixed with vodka and sweetened to please my candy tooth.
After which, the meals stored coming and the drinks stored flowing. I beloved the concept of the meals and drinks pairing (which was not restricted to wine). So, we tried quite a lot of meals and quite a lot of spirits, not caring for the hangover we may have the subsequent day. Surprisingly and fortunately, I did not get it!
Coming again to the meals, Pomelo Salad was one of many highlights of the dinner. The Thai-special salad has simply the freshness you want from a salad – the candy and spicy sauces, the crunch of the roasted nuts and the stunning greens – all got here collectively in splendid concord.
Then the night time was drawing to a detailed and it was time for the principle meal. I picked Sea bass en pappiouttee, which, to be trustworthy, didn’t fairly match my palate because it averts the scent and style of uncooked fish. However for many who do not thoughts it, it may be a very good possibility.
However then, desserts had been there to work up my urge for food as soon as once more. The signature Kakapo’s Nest, with full resemblance to the uncommon nocturnal fowl Kakapo, the egg-shaped dessert – seemed completely beautiful, the smoke round it including to its distinctive presentation. However it was the Vegan Sandwich dessert that received over my candy tooth and my coronary heart.
It was a really candy ending to an amazing meal. I left with a observe in my thoughts to return to Kakapo to attempt the remainder of the menu. Cannot wait!
