In the words of Le Meridien Dhaka’s General Manager, Constantinos S Gavriel, “Street food embodies the essence of our culture.” You can truly dive deep into the traditions and lifestyle of a nation by looking at their street food for the heart and soul that goes into the making of the food.
Le Meridien Dhaka has successfully showcased the street food culture of India by introducing their ‘Indian Street Food Saturday Lunch’ on 22 June, 2019. The team, along with Chef Delwar Hossain, who has been trained by world renowned Chef Sanjeev Kapoor, have concocted delicacies taken right from the root of Indian street food. You will surely experience the tanginess of ‘imli’ as you gulp down some ‘Pani Puri’ in the streets of Kolkata’s New Market. The sizzling splash of chicken onto a large pan, layered with oil as the cook orchestrates a ‘tikka,’ will transport you to the famous streets of Lucknow.
If you are visiting Le Meridien’s ‘Latest Recipe,’ you must try their ‘Hariyali Murgh Yakhni Shorba’ for starters; an equivalent of a cream of mushroom soup. Their ‘Masala Papad’ is an excellent addition to the list of offerings. The bowl shaped papad is dressed with tomatoes, onions, coriander and chillies, and is meant to be eaten by squeezing lemon juice on to it. Biting into it, you will find the smoky papad blending in immaculately with the tanginess of the core.
An interesting addition to the food stations is the Indian Spice Bread Station, decorated with an array of colourful loafs made from mango, mustard, carrot, beet root, blue cabbage and of course, chilli. This is a mouth-watering fusion which must not be missed.
When it comes to the main dishes, their ‘Pav Bhajis,’ ‘Tikkas’ and ‘Dosa’ are must haves. The key is to slowly savour every dish from each of their stations by taking your sweet time, after all, the buffet’s open from 12:30PM to 4PM.
Le Meridien Dhaka has time and again managed to put forward the traditional food culture of various regions and nations, ensuring the authenticity of the dishes. This comes with sheer talent and dedication as they have once again set a new standard of excellence.
Celebrate ‘Indian Street Food Saturday Lunch’ for Tk 2,500++ per person, every Saturday from 12:30PM till 4PM.
