Adapting to the latest culinary trends and innovations, My govindas promises to take their guests on a culinary journey based on sattvic food but fails miserably in terms of flavors and combination of dishes. Their motto is healthy and holistic food that pleases the body, mind and soul but all this process begins when you take that first bite of food and if your taste buds don’t accept it, how will it ever reach the “body, mind and soul”? You may disagree with me but the only way to evaluate that is to try their menu yourself.
The service was pretty amazing provided that it was a full house including the food bloggers and other customers. The staff were on their toes, rushing in and out of the kitchen to serve the guests and it was so evident that they were flustered.
We were served a welcome pani puri shot that tasted pretty nice. Then came the lemon ginger drink that was not as strong as I thought it would be but it wasn’t that bad.
Smoked angara paneer tikka:
The smoked angara paneer tikka came with a bang. It was smoking hot and tasted pretty nice. The charred capsicum was really adding to the flavor in general and the dish was ordered again.
Spicy Thai cigars:
These were hands down the best item on their menu. I think I speak for everyone when I say that we thoroughly enjoyed these cigars, they were loaded with creamy cheese filling and tiny bits of capsicum. We remember ordering it frequently.
Kidney bean kebabs:
I did not find these kebabs amusing at all since they were dry and bland. I could only taste cumin in it and rest was just blurred. I think it would be better if they add some more spices in it. I paired it with some pickle that was on the table and they became better afterwards.
The fondue sizzler was an interesting concept and I liked it! It was basically panner with vegetables on a sizzler plate that came along with cheese and another dip (that wasn’t very pleasing) So I dipped paneer in cheese and it tasted good. I loved the grilled vegetables on that sizzler plate.
Avocado naan toast:
So there was a basket with naan chopped into tiny squares and a buttery tomato sauce to have it with. Also fresh guacamole, tomato and green chili salsa and plain yogurt accompanied this dish. I felt the naan was a little dry and could use some clarified butter. The portion size was too small.
I would like to thank Team MyGovinda’s for their enormous love and this wonderful opportunity for food bloggers to eat under one roof and understand their concept behind the new fusion-contemporary menu.
