An Exotic Food Tasting Session at TG’S The Oriental Grill, Hyatt Ahmedabad

An Exotic Food Tasting Session at TG’S The Oriental Grill, Hyatt Ahmedabad Posted on April 28, 201823 Comments

I am a believer, a fighter, a dreamer. I believe nothing is impossible. I am a fashion enthusiast and love to read. I have a strong passion for writing as well. Keep a track on me for your daily dose of magic.

Pan Asian is the kind of experimental cuisine only few attempt to try especially if we speak of us, Indians. Hmm, what could probably be the reason for that? There could be many but the one major reason being- it’s too bland and mild for our taste buds. We love our desi food that’s tossed in the right spices and flavors, don’t we? Come to think of it, why do we love our Pizzas so much? Isn’t that everyone’s favorite junk item ordered at most times? If we were to eat the authentic Italian dish the way it’s made in its place of origin, none of us would like the taste of it given its authentic flavor. The reason why we eat this most loved Italian dish with so much joy is that it’s prepared with the Indian twist, not to forget, with chunks of Panner as a topping, how more Indian can you make a dish that has its origin in Italy?

Didn’t realize we are going quite off-track, or are we? Hyatt Ahmedabad has recently come up with their new restaurant on a similar concept? Still, wondering what that is? Well, TG’s The Oriental Grill is a new venture of Hyatt Ahmedabad that has been set up after months of analyzing and observing the local taste buds through frequent visits to street food joints as basic as Khau Gali, Manek Chowk, and even HL street road.

Recently, I was invited for food tasting at Hyatt Ahmedabad’s TG’s- The Oriental Grill. Their well courteous staff welcomed us with utmost etiquette and warmth. They escorted us towards our table and recommended the one that had a view of the entire restaurant. On entering the restaurant, you notice a huge dining area with a lit setup, bright lights, huge granite tables with six separate grills for a live kitchen experience and chimney right at the top of each grill to let the smoke/ flame escape up the roof without causing any suffocation or coughing.

The cutleries and crockeries were arranged neatly on every table. One of their staff ladies then came to explain the concept of the restaurant. From having a wide range of Korean, Japanese, Thai, Burmese, Chinese, Vietnamese to Indonesian cuisine on their menu, they explained how they have kept the preparation of these exotic dishes close to the Indian taste buds. A few highlights that make them stand out from the usual restaurant’s are-

  • Their major idea is to cater a large part of Indian visitors and not entirely the expats. Such a concept was new to me and I am sure one of its kind in a city like Ahmedabad.
  • Another major highlight of the restaurant’s concept is the live kitchen. Aptly named- The oriental Grill, one can have the experience of watching their food being made live in front of their table and not just that, you may also join the chef by trying your hands at cooking the East Asian cuisine.
  • The chef also customizes the food as per one’s choice- for eg, the choice of sauces, the choice of noodles or rice, the amount of spices, everything is prepared right in front of you as per your customization.
  • With a large population of Ahmedabad favoring the vegetarian and Jain food, it is absolutely amazing to have one such five-star restaurant where one out of the six grills is entirely catering to the strict vegetarians.
  • The menu has been designed in such a way that the prices are quite reasonable but the quantity at the same time is such that would be sufficient just for two. So you might as well, enjoy at least three-four dishes at a reasonable amount and have an experience of trying multiple dishes, yet not feel very heavy at the end of your meal.

Isn’t that one of a kind experience? Hmm, with such a concept, we were sure the evening would be worth looking forward to.

We were then handed the menu but we went ahead with the Chef’s recommendation:

Burnt Garlic Vegetable Clear Soup

Veg crisp Tempura roll and Fat boy Roll– The two kinds of sushi quite inevident from the names. When asked the reason behind naming them as such, they said, they didn’t wish people to limit themselves from having it. I have myself had Sushi quite a few times and believe me I had never liked the taste of it. But this one, as they had prepared it according to local taste buds, is by far the best sushi I have tried. Served with two dips- yuzu mayo and Soy sauce, I quite didn’t feel the need of the dips. The sushis were complete on its own.

Rock corn tempura– I love tempuras and this was my favorite from this entire meal. Prepared extremely crisp in a light batter and tossed in a mixture of wasabi and mayo sauce… Do try this for sure!

Bean Curd, carrot curried Bao– My first experience of having a bao but indeed the second best favorite item from the entire course of the meal. Delectable tangy veggies rolled in a soft bun pocket and served with the nicest topping of sauces, you sure can’t miss this one!

 

While the first is a big frozen chunk, aptly named, served with a straw in-between that makes you sip the melting cucumber and mint, the second drink is sour yet refreshing with an adequate taste of lemon juice! I liked the second drink more but first was tasty too!

Palate Pleaser I- Frozen Yoghurt Shot:

Extremely refreshing for one’s palate with the burst of that frozen yogurt in the mouth and is served in a liquid nitrogen tub … Appealing!

Dimsum-  Assorted Mushroom, Cauliflower Red and Chinese napa, Chilli Garlic Butter Bean Hargow

I totally loved the Chilli Garlic Butter Bean Hargow: Amateurs, it is closely similar to your favorite Steamed Momos and the taste is delightful with a strong onion, garlic chilly flavor! They have separate dips for dim sums but yet again, you don’t actually require dips, at least I didn’t find the need!

Palate Pleaser II- Wasabi Sorbets

I am sure no amount of adjectives would do justice in expressing the kind of sensation this gave. Just as this sorbet melts in your mouth, it’s like your ears have pulled a string from the nose, the eyes have got an electric shock, the mind is frozen and the body is captivated for a second or two. But as they say, the charm is in trying and not just reading. Try it for the good shocker experience. I’d say, totally worth it.

And so I tried my hands on cooking with the chef. Can you guess what’s cooking?

Making Thai green vegetable curry with burnt sticky garlic rice and haricot bean chilly black bean.

Mudslide Burnt Icecream

A rare non-chilled Icecream but a hot chewy preparation with sesame coats quite hard to break and swallow but totally pleasant to the taste buds with a bed of pineapple underneath and sliced almonds as a topping.

So people, with such a unique concept based new restaurant in the city, I am sure one cannot resist from planning a visit for a never-had before kind of experience! Amazing hospitality and conveniently approachable for people from all age groups. For more insights, check out the highlights on my Instagram!

Until next time,

Xoxo,

  7. What I have observed in terms of pc memory is that often there are specs such as SDRAM, DDR and the like, that must go with the technical specs of the mother board.

It’s on the list of easiest personal computer upgrade types of procedures one can consider. Thanks for revealing your ideas.

  8. Great blog post. A few things i would like to bring about is that personal computer memory should be purchased should your computer still can’t cope with everything you do along with it. One can put in two good old ram boards with 1GB each, by way of example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one having 2GB. One should make sure the manufacturer’s documentation for own PC to ensure what type of memory space is required.

  9. A few things i have seen in terms of laptop memory is there are features such as SDRAM, DDR or anything else, that must fit the features of the mother board.

Make sure one’s mother board can handle the upgrade volume, as well. Interesting blog post.
