Into the city
A checklist on what to do, where to eat and what to shop for
Come to Amara, the newly launched all-day dining restaurant at Trident with a good appetite and time on hand. The view of the city from the 20 feet high windows up here are pretty engaging. Oodles of natural light bathes the minimalist straight line interiors rather beautifully. The menu comprises global cuisines with a special emphasis on Mediterranean and Asian fare. Start with their specialty appetisers like Til palak ki tikki which practically melts in the mouth and Bekti tawa masala, fillet of fish marinated with chili and tamarind for just a hint of that zesty edge and pan fried to perfection. For the main course, try the Artichoke Spinach and Walnut Pasta or a smoked chicken risotto. Singapore chili crabs— served with shrimp crackers and basil steamed rice—will make you want to revisit while the grilled Norwegian salmon with gratin potato, dill and mustard beurre blanc is a complete winner.
For light bites during the day, try their wide selection of burgers and sandwiches. For dessert, there’s nothing like the homemade sorbets in flavours like raspberry and chili made right before you. Meal for two Rs 2,500 plus taxes At Trident, Hitec City Tel 66232323
