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.
Goldbrick celebrates Holi
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.
Holi special set menu at the Goldbrick
As said earlier, Holi is incomplete without some traditional Holi food. You can never enjoy this celebration of colours to the fullest without tasting some mouthwatering authentic Holi dishes. The Goldbrick Restaurant seemed to club everything together- Holi, food, entertainment. The Set Menu includes;
Karare Tandoori Aloo
Papad Dahi Kebab
Tamatar Dhania Shorba
Tossed Green Salad
Assorted Indian Breads (Kulcha, Paratha, Naan)
Paneer Khas Kadai Dum
Gatte Curry Wali
Baked Boondi with Vanilla Ice Cream
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).
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.
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.
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.
