Here’s a chance of celebration for our Lucknow Foodies !
Fashion Herald is organising a 11-day “The Pan Asian Food Fest” at EOS ( Levana Hotel) from 17th of March to 27th of March. The fest is all about the cuisines of Asia, which is as wide and diverse as the continent itself. EOS, a well established name in the food industry gives an opportunity to the foodies to pamper themselves with not only good food but also music to boot.
EOS( Levana) brings in the taste of South East Asia and West Asia which includes countries like Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Burma, and Mangolia to INDIA. I was lucky enough to sample the delights which were served at launch of the festival. I’ve had a pleasure of sampling one of the finest delicacies, both veg and non veg in a long while.
I simply loved the concept of the fest as it gives you a chance to learn about healthy eating and in a relaxed and pleasing ambiance. EOS has this ongoing food fest, giving a chance to the foodies to explore a wide variety of cuisines for lunch and dinner both. An exclusive menu has been prepared for the guests.
Now coming on to the food there were so many different cuisines ranging from Malaysian to Burmese which I tried. Before I move ahead I must mention that this fest is headed by two super heroes : Chef Vinod Kakri ( exclusively for the fest) and Chef Khem Chand Godiyal.
Chef Khem Chand Godiyal personally served me some starters like Edamame, a finger food ; it was made up of young soyabean tossed with sea salt and three peppers (black, pink and green) which can be clearly seen in the picture.
Next I tasted Prawn satay and Curry puff. Prawn satay has soya and garlic enhance grilled prawn tossed with wasabi mayo and Curry puff is a combination of oriental exotic and baby potatoes flavor with curry spice and stuff in crispy dough. It’s an ideal snack for all those who aren’t health conscious, as the puffs were deep fried.
Since I’m a big-time foodie and would love to dig into some global cuisines so I had Japanese Rice and Curry, it was made in ginger, garlic, onion, butter along with ripe tomatoes. It was flavored with apple honey and curry powder ( commonly know as kadhe masale). Everything was so fresh that you can feel the aroma.
Chiang Mai Curry, a Burmese dish typically know as Khowsey ( told by the Chef). The Curry was coconut and lime flavoured and got well along with noodles andI love coconut so I enjoyed having it as it had a coconut flavor soup.
Mix vegetable in Malaysian curry was my dish for the evening, a curry made with onion, coriander, coconut milk flavor with kafir lime. A must try for anyone who loves vegetables in particular.
Apart from all this I kept myself for a very famous Japanese Cuisine- NARE–ZUSHI (pronounced as sushi). For this festival they are serving some 4-5 varieties of zushi; Tutomaki, Yasai Uramaki, Abokado Maki, Sake Maki, Dragon Roll comprising of both veg and non veg.
Tutomaki, Yasai Uramaki, Abokado Maki, Sake Maki, Dragon Roll
Yasai Uramaki is a Japanese daikon roll in rice noori sheet. Tutomaki is a baby asparagus roll in sushi rice. Dragon rolls are prawn roll in rice than crumb than fried.
Apart from what I had there will be several other cuisines for this 11 day ongoing food festival. A glimpse of the dishes are here for my foodies.
So in order to explore different cuisines make sure that you go down there as soon as possible so that you have enough time to get a taste of the various cuisines being served in this food fest. An impressive and varied food fest this March will truly introduce food-lovers to the wonders that will be on offer at EOS.
