Holi Special Set Menu at Gold Brick Restaurant

 

Not a single festival is complete without food. Celebration and enjoyment remains incomplete without some mouthwatering dishes. As far as Holi is concerned, it is no doubt a festival most loved by everyone from 8 to 80. Colours make us all forget about all barriers between us and just go with the flow. This celebration of colours also remains incomplete if our plate is also not equally colourful. There are some authentic Holi dishes which are a must try amidst this colourful season.

The Goldbrick Restaurant is a long-standing establishment nestled in the Mukti World that serves contemporary dishes with the intention of providing a healthy, affordable, enjoyable, alternative for the London Paris crowd.

The Goldbrick Restaurant came up with the same thought and idea when they planned of introducing a Holi Special Set Menu on 21st March. It was a special Holi food tasting festival arranged in the Goldbrick Restaurant at Mukti World, Gariahat, Kolkata. The event was planned to be held on 21st March from 2pm onwards. Some authentic and exotic Holi foods were the main attraction of the place and I was invited to taste and review the entire event. Now who wants to loose such an amazing opportunity! I accepted the invitation at once and finally dropped there on the mentioned date. Here’s a glimpse of the event.

Introducing the Holi Special Set Menu formed the backbone of this extravagant concept while entertainment supplemented it. On 21st March the Goldbrick Restaurant at Mukti World, Gariahat turned to a fairyland with bright colours, delicious foods and limitless entertainment. Timing for lunch was from 12-3 PM and dinner from 7-11 PM. Price per person was 500/- (inclusive of all taxes).

 

The concept

 

At Goldbrick they believe that food and entertainment goes hand in hand. On the colourful occasion of Holi they brings for the foodies some authentic Holi dish as well as a golden opportunity for them to enjoy to the fullest. With every set menu the customer will get a chance to win a ‘buy 1 get 1 movie ticket voucher.’ All these movie tickets will be valid from 25th March to 14th April, 2016. You will be eligible for the movie tickets only if you buy a set menu at Goldbrick.

The dinner with the Holi Special Set menus were arranged on 23rd as well as 24th March, 2016. The offer of the movie tickets was also open on these two days. On 23rd March only dinner was arranged for the invited and on 24th arrangement was there for both lunch and dinner.

 

Foodies Pick

 

The Holi menu was straightforward — we started off with a holi special Thandai as thirst quencher. Then went for the crowd pleasing Cocktail Samosa, mix veg deep fried Samosa that melts in your mouth, and the flavourful Karare Tandoori Aloo served with pudina chutney. Other small bite to look forward was Papad Dahi Kebab which was wonderfully done.

In mains I absolutely enjoyed Paneer Khas Kadai Dum and Gatte Curry Wali. Paneer Khas Kadai Dum might just be one of the best savoury versions you will find as it really hits the spot with texture and flavour.

Go easy on the grains here, portions are generous and they fill you up even before you start to dig into the rest of the menu.

 

011

 

Of course, those with a sweet tooth were not neglected — go for their Baked Boondi with Vanilla Ice Cream, a fusion Indian dessert which made plain and simple boondi taste astounding and served with vanilla ice cream. So, if you really have a sweet tooth, the Baked Boondi with Vanilla Ice Cream was rightfully tempting.

Two fun filled days passed quickly with the taste of the unique dishes still lingering in my mouth. People tasting the set menus and getting the movie tickets were also equally excited. My heartiest thanks to the management of Goldbrick Restaurant for giving me such an amazing opportunity to taste some of the brilliant, lip-smacking & traditional Holi dishes. Offering really affordable set lunches, consider this a good lunch option if you’re in the area. The food here is authentic, generous, and generally remarkable.

1915940_101100699948573_1759232_nRajdeep Bhattacharjee wears many feathers in his cap. A ravenous eater, a thirsty drinker, an enthusiastic traveller and a very sound sleeper – Rajdeep, once a wannabe hacker and now a Government employee, is an aspiring food critic and travel blogger. He hates the loose use of the word 'foodie' and prefers, instead, the expression 'food devotee'. For him, good food and honest people are the biggest motivators.

He is the founder of Gourmets Travel Guide, a website devoted completely to food and travel. Rajdeep is an avid blogger and one can find many of his sojourns aptly expressed on the website www.gourmetstravelguide.com.

Rajdeep had been recently chosen by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) to board the inaugural flight from Kolkata to Bangkok (TG – 336) and received accolades for wonderfully recounting the experience, from start to finish, in his blog. In fact, his travelogue was featured in Hangla Hneshel, one of India's foremost Bengali magazine dedicated completely to food and travel. Rajdeep doesn't stop there! One of his undersea walks also got featured in The Telegraph, one of India's leading dailies. He is also one of the chief curators and a selector for chefs and restaurants for Channel One's Resto Ranna episodes.

Zomato ranks Rajdeep among the top ten food connoisseurs in the city. He has also been ranked number 5 and 6, in this year's Network 18 and Burrp surveys respectively, as one of the discerning food critics in the country.

Rajdeep loves eating out at different restaurants. A true blue Bengali at heart and gut, experimenting with food and palates come naturally to him. And he doesn't mind leaving an endearing word or two for chefs who have displayed their talents on the plate and the restaurant management for the inviting ambiance of an eatery.

Rajdeep counts is as his forte the wonderful rapport he shares with different media houses. Thus his writings have already been picked up by top food journals and news dailies apart from the exposure he has to talk about them on social media. Reputation management of his clients come naturally to him be it on the virtual platform or in print.

He has been blogging for the last three years. When he is not writing on food and travel or working as a Government employee, you can most certainly catch him with a camera slung around his neck and travel gear ready to satisfy his inner wanderlust.
