Food Festival · Jaipur

There is Fantasy! There is Food! There’s Wahrabia! @Barbeque Nation

Inspired by popular folklore the Arabian Nights and Aladdin, Barbeque Nation, pioneer in India to promote ‘DIY’ (do-it-yourself) cuisine with a concept of live on-the-table grill is now offering exotic dining experience with Arabian food festival ‘Wahrabia Fest’. As we are always ready to adventure and experiment with food, it was definitely the perfect time to experience the magic of Arabian food that too in Jaipur 🙂

So, here we go….

BBQ1

The magic of Arabian nights with lively and dreamy decorations were enough to set our mood for Sunday lunch. The servers sporting Arabian attire made us feel like ‘AAKA’ actually coming straight from Aladin’s Jinn story.

We set for the best feast with some high expectations and believe it; we were not at all disappointed.

There was a lot to avail and it was truly difficult to made a choice. We left it to the server and within few minutes of our entry we were devouring some scrumptious Arabian dishes both veg and non veg and complimentary drink.

Starters which they served on grill at our table included jalepeno live mushroom, sweet and smoky pineapple, Soya Chaap, Paneer capsicum. Crsipy corn though lacks that Arabian flavor but was good. Other than that the tantalizing vegetarian preparations were Afelia Batata, Felafel Pita pckets, Curried Chickpeas, Sheesh Kudra, Zucchini Fasigratin.

In the non veg section, the spicy flavors of Arabia comes up in Jojeh Kebab – chunks of chicken marinated in saffron and grilled to perfection, Rubian Mashwi – chargrilled prawns marinated with Lebanese spices, Dabel Kebab, Arabian Kafta Lamb Seekh – minced lamb on seekh, Farareej el Fahem and Samak Harrrah Al Shara – Pomfret baked with crushed garlic and coriander and served with pepper sauce.

BBQ4
Veg Tawa Platter

The high light was the live veg-nonveg counter, where one can bask in the aroma of marinated, skewered meat sizzling over hot grills and tawas. But frankly, dishes from the non veg live counter were not so good when compared to other dishes served on platter.

For desserts, traditional dishes were there on offer– Baklava – rich, sweet pastry made of layers of filo filled with chopped nuts and sweetened with honey, Muhallabieh – Creamy milky pudding with roses, pistachio and lemon syrup, Kataif Mihshi – pancakes stuffed with mascarpone cheese and served with sweetened rose syrup.

Experience-

It was just not the food but the overall ambiance that will make you fall in love with the place. Though crowded as it was Sunday but the service was drastic fast. I think that seriously deserves a pat with so many restaurants coming up everyday what is missed is the service in most of these.

The most pleasurable moment was when the attendant asked us to click our pic and before our lunch was over we were given the printed photograph of our family. Wow, the gesture was really unique that made our day really special 🙂

PS- Remember don’t leave a tip. The 4% service tax is already included they were kind enough to mention the same and returned our tip.

Fo a fun filled family or friends time, a visit to Barbeque Nation during the ongoing Wahrabia Fest where you can eat to your heart’s content is definitely not a bad choice 🙂

‘The Wahrabia Arabian’ food festival is on till 13th March 2016!

If your stomach is still not full or has a little space, head out onto the streets to get a bite of the local snacks and delicacies. You can really bet on a stall of Pandit Pav Bhaji which has been serving from at least last 15 years, or even try Bhelpuri in Raja Park (in front of Julie Furniture). If you want everything at one place Kanha can be the perfect place.
