Feast like a king at this Delhi restaurant that is serving a mega Tamil thali
Like the mega movie stars of the region, it’s easy to expect a Tamil Nadu feast to be one packed with a lot of drama. Pardon us for being ‘filmy’, but that’s what a massive-sized thali can do to you, especially when you overestimate your appetite for a meal. We were in for a surprise at the ongoing Tamil Nadu food fest in Delhi’s popular restaurant Chor Bizarre. The restaurant, which is known to showcase regional cuisines from across India through specially crafted menus from time to time, newly introduced Tamil Nadu On A Plate in an attempt to offer traditional delicacies from the South Indian state. Presented in the form of a silver thali, the team of chefs makes an earnest effort to keep the authenticity of each dish that they have learnt and mastered from experts from Tamil Nadu.
Our weekend lunch at the beautifully decorated Chor Bizarre began with classic cocktails from the bar – a martini and a daiquiri, while we scrolled through the menu that had 20 dishes each under vegetarian and non-vegetarian (including accompaniments). Needless to say that we were all upbeat for the feast to follow. And soon enough our grand silver thalis were laid on our table.
