Healthy & Refreshing Dine out: Café-Hyatt Regency Review

Summer season is at it's peak, and for many of you out there who's weekend dining out plans depend a lot on the scorching heat and the choice of food offered at your fave restaurants, the season is sure a reason for not letting you step out of your comfort zones.

Well, not anymore as some of the best dining out options in the NCR are offering a special Summer menu that's more towards wellness, is super-hydrating, and yummilicious to it's core. And, Café at Hyatt Regency Delhi is one of them.

Mango And Papaya Carpacio, Super-Yum & Healthy...
We visited the beautiful all-day dining restaurant of this iconic hotel last week to experience the new Summer menu and the exotic brunch that can make you forget the summer woes, for a while at least!!
It was more like a Chef's table with fellow bloggers joining over the trials and tasting, but we decided to sit right next to the glass window that was giving a beautiful green view of the hotel. Of course, the reason was simple, we wanted to capture the best of the food that was such a fab creation of Abhishek SinghChef de Cuisine- Café, whom we met for the first time.

Assorted Salad Platter That we Opted From the Buffet

Singh comes with a great experience of working with many other five-star chains of the hotels, and it was very well reflected in the food courses that we tried that fine afternoon...

The experience kick-started with a super-soothing cocktail called Italian Berry Fizz. Though, the restaurant had a mocktail (Cafe Summer Cooler) too for trial but the fizz was just amazing. It gave a certain high but thanks to the yum courses, which followed later and the alcohol effect got diluted in no time.

The Cheese & Greens Here Make a Perfect Summer Choice...
Summer season is all about light food that can keep you hydrated all day long. Also, during summers we get such amazing variety of fruits that we were sure that some of the dishes will have that influence too. Seemed like Singh knew exactly what a health-conscious foodie would be looking for in a summer menu, and we had Mango And Papaya Carpacio right on our table. Oh, what a beauty it was, tasted equally delicious. The subtle flavour of the seasonal mango, hidden somewhere under that soft papaya was surreal. We knew that the chef would keep surprising us, and therefore, in the meantime, we decided to check out the healthy salads (See pics above). Right from cucumber salad, carrot salad, sprout salad, cous cous salad, we tried most of them. You see, that's the beauty of summer menu, and how perfectly it goes with a women's taste buds, and needs. We like to eat low-cal food, and that's what Café at Hyatt Regency is offering this season...

 Balsamic Marinated Vegetables, This was Spot-on!
little later arrived some of the creative delicacies that were more like a visual treat. Be it the Balsamic Marinated Vegetables, Californication or Shirmp And Avacado Salad (didn't try this one being a veg), each one had some great flavours, some nutrient-full ingredients (especially for skin & tummy). We liked the way Chef Singh said Californication as the salad had some hints of American style ingredients, like peach, and walnuts. We particularly loved Balsamic marinated vegetables, what a creative presentation it was!

Californication,as the Chef Called it Tasted Nice!

Well, these were just the starters, and we knew that the main course is going to be on a heavier side. So, for a foodie the Indian counter at this restaurant is a heaven definitely. From soups, grill starters, spicy marinated paneer, to some amazing variety of breads (like, methi, multi-grain, besan, mirchi, etc) you are spoilt for choices. And, what a day be spoilt on - A Weekend!!

Cous-Cous Salad With Caponata 
We opted for some basic breads, and tried the five-pulse mix dal, some okra, corn paneer sabzi and some snacks. On wonder, it was a heavy and tasty course, but then worth each bite of it.

No food experiential in India is complete till you try the desserts, and we simply followed this rule. While Café offers you some international desserts to the basic all-time Indian favourites, we decided to try just the chocolate ice cream to balance the palate post such a heavy yet cool meal.

Dining out with friends and family is an affair that's more about fun time spent together than the actual food tried and tasted. But this season, since restaurants like Café are offering such a hydrating, and healthy menu, then make sure to dine out not just for fun, but for an amazing food experience as well!!
