Into the City
A checklist on what to eat, what to do and what to shop for.
Who says you can’t experiment with a vegetarian menu? With a variety of delicious dishes served in Chandigarh’s Garlic and Greens, herbivores have much to cheer about. The restaurant sets the mood with its perfect vintage ambience. We started our culinary journey with Shepherd's Melt—a tastefully done up dish served with with soya, salsa and cheese sauce, and topped with jalapenos. Potato and bean salad with chives also caught our fancy and we were rewarded with fresh chives and mustard cream draping a perfectly made potato salad. The Farmer’s Skillet is not to be missed—simple dish of hash browns with grilled onions and peppers. All this was brought in with the garlic soup that stood out with its quirky burnt garlic taste and parsley oil. In the main course, the wild mushroom and green bean ravioli with mushroom cappuccino was an instant hit. You may also try the mini seasonal vegetable lasagna. The pizza capri escarole with pepper, mushrooms and asparagus tossed in with unflavoured cheese tasted like a dish straight from the Italian shores. With white mushroom and American corn patte enclosed in a multi grain bun, the mushroom and corn burger is also a must-try main course dish. Garlic and Greens also takes great pride in its dessert menu and the bread and butter pudding showed us exactly why. While the fresh fruit cup with honey and mint is a bestseller, the grilled banana with double chocolate and roasted nuts stole the show.
