Vasco’s at Hilton Abu Dhabi celebrates Indian cuisine with a seven-day food festival from April 24-30.
ABU DHABI – April 24, 2017 – Hilton Abu Dhabi invites residents and tourists in the capital to go on a culinary journey across India starting today until April 30 through a special menu.
Available from 7pm – 10.30pm, the Flavours of India menu designed by Chef Manikandan Mahalingam features a selection of starters, main courses and desserts from different regions of the subcontinent. With prices ranging from AED 35 to AED 260, the menu is a blend of Indian cooking styles and flavours with international cuisine.
For appetisers, there is the Chicken Mulligatawny Soup, a lentil-based soup cooked with cubes of chicken and Indian spices and served with coriander croutons.
There are four choices for mains including the Goan-style Pomfret, fitting for a venue inspired by the travels of Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama. There is a local favourite on the menu as well – the popular Hyderabadi Chicken Biryani.
Guests at the award-winning venue are encouraged to try the Nalli Nihari, a unique dish where a lamb shank is slow-cooked in a delicious curry sauce and served with white rice, bell peppers and onion slaw.
The highlight, however, is the Lobster Lababdar, which is also the most expensive item on the Flavours of India menu. Canadian lobster is cooked in red chilli paste, ginger, garlic, and Indian spices, and then served with saffron rice and a side of raita.
For dessert, there is the interesting fusion of Carrot Halwa served with masala chai-flavoured mascarpone cream, hazelnut crumble and vanilla ice-cream, as well as a Gulab Jamun Crème Brulee with rabdi sauce.
Vasco’s is open daily for dinner from 7pm to 11pm, and for brunch on Friday and Saturday from 10am to 3.30pm.
