Into the city

A check­list on what to do, where to eat and what to shop for


Eclec­tic plat­ters

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
