The scorching summer season has begun across the country. As temperatures soar and the weather drains our energy, we seek respite from food and drink. Seasonal favorites are soon hitting our palates, giving us much-needed hydration while delighting our taste buds. If you’re looking for a new place to try this summer, PVR Home is where you should be. The luxury restaurant located on the third floor of the Ambience shopping center, Vasant Kunj also doubles as a social and live entertainment club. Their new summer menu is made entirely from local, seasonal ingredients sourced from local artisan brands, with plenty of options to suit every palate.
Chef Mayank, Chef Harpal and Chef Saito designed PVR Home’s new summer menu. They have integrated European cooking techniques, avant-garde Indian culinary experiences and intense Japanese flavors into one menu. Thus, you can choose from cuisines as varied and distinct as French, Japanese, Mediterranean and even Indian!
In the appetizer section we tried the Plantain Shami Kebab Taco in which the Raw Mango Tartare element really stood out. Next, the truffled mushroom pâté with a parmesan cheeseling and a homemade apricot pickle. The chefs also served us a carefully selected assortment of gluten-free and flour-free Dim Sums, as well as summer items such as stuffed water chestnut inside. We also really appreciated the Avocado and Green Mango Tartar topped with a Green Mango Sorbet – a refreshing delicacy and ideal for summer!
For the main course, we were for a Tibetan cheese treat – the Vegetable Ema Datshi. A comforting stew made with yak cheese, summer greens and chilli oil and paired with Tingmo, it was definitely a fulfilling end to our meal. If you like the flavors of Europe, we also recommend the Saffron and Lotus Mantis with tomato butter, chives and garlic cream. Our meal ended sweetly with the Bebeinca apple with coconut milk almond gelato.
