Well, if you want to get the best of street food and a clean environment, head to Kava at Fairfield by Marriott on Outer Ring Road in Bengaluru. Every Wednesday Executive Chef Sudhir Nair and his culinary team have an extensive spread of street food, in seven live counters for lunch. The food is delectable and tasty and lip smacking – just like street food should be.
As we settled into our comfortable seating, we were offered a couple of fresh summer drinks – buttermilk or chaaas and mango lassi. Both these were refreshing and fresh and the perfect way to start the meal. The buffet is interactive and all the food is made live at separate counters so you can add your personal touch and have your food how you like it. Here are counters and what you can eat.
This is where you can try not just chowmin but also chilli chicken and chilli paneer. I tried the chill paneer a mélange of bell peppers, baby corn carrot, sweet corn, brown onions and green peas tossed in chilli sauce and vinegar that has a nice taste with the softness of the paneer matching the crunch of the vegetables perfectly.
The eternal favourite chaats include the chole samosa, a delightful mix that will leave you asking for more, papdi chaat, dahi bhalla, pani buri and bhel puri.
If you are watching your health, the green salad, spicy raw mango salad, condiments, yoghurt and chutney are a must try.
This is where you can try both Missal Pav (for vegetarians) and Kheema Pav (for nonvegetarians) along with an assortment of condiments that will take you back to Maharashtra.
This is where you can see the Chef make the typical Malabar paratha live and it teams beautifully with Veh Korma or Chicken Serva and Onion Pachidi.
Considering that no meal feels complete without rice, at this station you can try Chicken Tikka Biryani and Bring-e-hina, a delightful rice made with brinjal and spiced mildly that leaves a nice feeling in your mouth. Team this with raita, papad, pickle and salan and you have a complete meal.
And what is a meal that does not end on a sweet note? So you have a variety of Indian desserts ranging from jalebi with hot milk, Kaddu ka Halwa, Gulab Jamun, Malpua with rabdi, Assorted Indian sweets and Ice cream with condiments. Yes, that certainly packs a punch, much like the rest of this meal.
