The struggle to bring together healthy and yummy is a never-ending one which we all have perhaps juggled with. Be it for diets or just to have a wholesome, nutritious meal without disappointing our taste buds. And while dining out, flavour mostly wins over nutrition. But Crowne Plaza Today in Gurugram is changing exactly that! Nestled right on the highway in the business and entertainment hub of Sector 29 Gurugram, Crowne Plaza offers a global platter at its multi-cuisine restaurant Café G. We sat down at the contemporary-style restaurant for a sunny winter lunch along with Executive Chef Nishesh Seth, who kept us entertained with many fascinating anecdotes from his 15 year-long culinary journey.
While the menu at Café G encompasses various cuisines including Asian and Indian, chef had us sorted with some of his best picks form the lot. The meal was designed to reflect a wholesome meal, replete with nutrition yet impressing our palates. We started off with a comforting dimsum soup with an Indian touch and a hint of Thai. It was a soothing potion with subtle flavours of coconut combined with spices and herbs including lemongrass along with strong notes of cashewnut and turmeric, with a juicy chicken dumpling dipped in it. Next we had was a refreshing beetroot and goat cheese salad - a spectacular mix of beetroot slices, goat cheese balls cherry tomatoes and crunchy walnuts with hint of tart.
We then moved towards the main course, which truly a show-stealer! Grilled chicken stuffed with spinach, served with tossed shitake mushrooms and mashed lentil, doesn't it sound like a high-protein meal of your dreams? The succulent chicken and flavourful mushrooms tossed with chillies were like a match made in heaven!
We ended the lunch on a sinful sweet note with a chocolate pastry loaded with decadent chocolate ganache and topped with chocolate croutons and crisps. It was served with a side of chocolate laced berries and we are still drooling thinking about it!
This simple, wholesome and concise meal at Crowne Plaza is exactly what you need to fill yourself optimally besides treating the taste buds.
