Diabetic Food Trail at Latitude, Vivanta by Taj — Reviewed!

Lovely people, you must have read my post on the second edition of Diabetic Food Trail which is held over 200 restaurants across 5 cities to offer everyone especially Diabetics, Pre-Diabetics and Health conscious individuals, a wonderful culinary experience. The Diabetic Food Trail is initiated by Seema and Manoj Pinto, director of Semora Entertainment and presented by Britannia Nutrichoice Essentials in association with Biocon. This year the trail had two major attractions –Diabetic Masterclasses and Diabetic Fitness Bootcamps.

I had a chance to visit and experience the lovely diabetic friendly menu at The Latitude, Vivanta by Taj, Pune. Quaint place, scrumptious food, quick service and smiling staff is what you can expect here. Exec. Chef Sachin Joshi and I had a bit of conversation following the meal. Being a winter noon, I preferred to sit outdoor with a view. 

As mentioned menu is basic with the balance of veg and non-veg dishes with their nutritional value mentioned. I started with Carrot and Ginger Zinger, a detox drink (Rs.250). Perfect balance of Carrots with the zing of ginger.

Beetroot Pomegranate juice was the next (Rs.250). Healthy punch to the meal. Nice infusion of pomegranate into beetroot. Beautifully amalgamated and you know it had 0gm fat! :)

Next course of Salad had Cabbage, Carrot, Basil and Lettuce (Rs.400). I polished off the whole bowl in few minutes. Yes, it was that delicious. Crunch and freshness of lettuce with the salad dressing and seasoning made it lip-smacking. Great combo of veggies.

Main course started with the Whole Wheat Schezwan Noodles and Broccoli, Mushrooms and Bean Sprouts Stir Fry with Organic black rice. Sounds exotic! Relish the noodles in a healthy way. Bit oily to me though taste was good. 
Extremely power packed, healthy and satisfying dish was Mushrooms and Bean Sprouts Stir Fry. Combined it with the organic rice and you are good to go for a happy meal. One needs to have an acquired taste for the organic black rice, but for me, health is what that matters! It is a nutty superfood and can eat it on daily basis. Some might find it chewy but they are extremely healthy.

Was too stuffed to have desserts but I was eager to try Tofu Chocolate Cheese cake. The Vegan dish was balanced sweet, obviously can't expect the same taste but atleast this is a guilt-free eat. The presentation was so beautiful that I had to think twice before gobbling it!

Overwhelmed by the hospitality of the Taj. Special thanks to Ganesh, Chef Sachin, Semora Entertainment and all its sponsors who supported this awareness. I wish the diabetic friendly menu continues forever!
