From 15 to 22 August, Town Restaurant at the Fullerton Hotel will host Guest Chef Hemant Oberoi for a week long spread of fine Indian cuisine, redefined. Chef Oberoi, formerly the Grand Executive Chef at Taj Mahal Palace, brings with him a wealth of experience and flavour to the regular Town Restaurant buffet, making it one of most exciting limited-time promotions I’ve been to yet.
Chef Oberoi and me
Chef Oberoi is no stranger in the Indian culinary gourmet scene. He is currently a consultant Chef for the Taj Group, and is a culinary personality who has been the personal chef to Prime Ministers and Presidents. He is also known to be the man behind award winning restaurant Wasabi by Morimoto at the Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces, whose Mumbai branch is ranked as one of Asia’s 50 best restaurants for 3 consecutive years from 2013 to 2015.
Among the wide selection of dishes to look out for are items such as the Mutton Shikampuri Kebab, Chicken Saagwala Curry, the Atta Chicken and portions of freshly made Naan.
I was impressed by the Roti Pe Boti, which featured baby lamb well marinated with spices and served on thin pieces of bread. Gamey lamb is lightened yet still with a unique portrayal of flavours ranging a mild sweetness to deeper savouriness.
The Atta Chicken is also worth a mention for its unique technique of cooking well marinated chicken inside a dough shell. I loved the hearty flavours which were tenderly spiced and well scented with gentle smoky touch.
In addition to the range of savoury and meaty delights, explore special dessert creations such as the Masala Chai Creme Brulee, the Hot Gulab Jamun (I reckon I spotted a dry version) and even the Kulfi Ice Cream. Mango, Strawberry and Buttermilk lassi accompanies the meal on top of a selection of Indian-inspired starters and salads. This is an excellent selection that comes alongside Town Restaurant’s already delectable buffet choices of seafood, sushi and sashimi, roasted meats and dessert. Town Restaurant’s Art of Indian Haute Dinner Buffet will be available from now till 22 August, and might be one buffet not to be missed.
