JW Marriott Goan and Marwar Food Festival 2016- Reviewed!

JW Marriott is known for not only hospitality but also hosting various food festivals for its patrons. The hotel is all set to host two food festivals - Goan Food Festival and Marwar Food Festival this month at Spice Kitchen and Shakahari respectively.These cuisines will be handcrafted by speciality chefs who will assist Chef Mayur Tiwari- Executive chef of the hotel.
Highlights of the festival are..
· Live stations for gourmands.
· Special counter of Goan and Marwar delicacies will be an added attraction apart from the regular buffet.

People can enjoy Goan food at the global cuisine restaurant Spice Kitchen.

The festival captured the essence of Goan cuisine, with few authentic specialities like Fish curry, Prawn Balchao, Vindaloo, Bombil Fry, Chicken Cafreal etc.

Waiters were dressed in traditional attire of hats and floral shirts making whole ambience as you are holidaying in Goa. Live music was going on and giving more lively feeling. You need to visit here to experience this.

The predominantly flavourful vegetarian cuisine is what lures people to visit Rajasthan, a land of palaces, culture and distinguished food dishes.

Marwar food festival will offer authentic Marwari food for all patrons looking for regional food of Rajasthan.
Special menu have beverages like Thandaai and Chaas along with live stations at the outer deck of Shakahari offering hot Daal Bati Churma, Chilla, Mirchi Vada cooked fresh. How exciting is it to be served with waiters in regional outfits serving signature dishes.

Being a vegetarian, my inclination was towards the delicacies offered in Shakahari during this fest. Regular buffet dinner is served along with few stalls of regional cuisine. Main course offers varied spread like Seekhwali Gulabi Gatta, Sangri Achar, Jodhpuri Shahi Gatte, Dal Panchmel, Bajre ka Khichda, Tawa Poodi, Missi Roti to name a few.

In the starters, tried Mirchi Vada, Chilla and mini Kachoris. Mirchi Vada could have been more stuffed with a bit of fresh pomegranate seeds.

Chilla was super delicious, nice, crisp served with chutneys.

Mini Kachoris were bit dry and the shell was thick, which I suggested to the manager and he noted.

Main course had Dal, Baati, Churma, Jodhpuri Gatta Curry, and Tawa Pudi. Dal Panchmel was to die for. Highly recommended. Baati was nice, crisp and perfectly baked dipped in ghee. Churma had the right amount of sweetness and was garnished with dry fruits for extra crunch.

Jodhpuri Gatta Curry was an excellent and delicious Rajasthani vegetarian dish made with besan flour; dumplings cooked in a spicy and tangy yogurt sauce. Spices were balanced though it could have been more tangy as per my palate.

Tawa Pudi was served hot. This roti uses the same dough that is used for pooris with more spices and flavours. Only difference is in the rolling out of the rotis and it is fried on griddle/Tawa. Went well with curry.
Dessert room is always an attraction and that too with authentic regional sweets. Tried my hand on Ghewar, Balushahi, Rabdi Laddoo. Just one word - WOW! Not to be missed!

So, what are you waiting for? Get your friends and family for this amazing food festival at Hotel JW Marriott, Senapati Road.
