Mehrauli has been a constant go-to place for upscale restaurants and couture houses, offering a combination of fine dining and luxe shopping experience. Every now and then, new restaurants open their doors to the discerning population of Delhi. Swan created quite a buzz when it opened a couple of years ago and still rivets our attention for some authentic Italian and Japanese food. Our recent visit to Swan to try their new menu was almost as impressive as the last one.
The expansive restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating areas. Our obvious choice was the al-fresco terrace area, lined up with a huge neem tree and lots of greens. The stunning view of the Qutub Minar in the backdrop livened our mood and charged up our appetite.
We started our meal with Mushroom Cappuccino. No, it's not coffee but a comforting soup which is creamy and delicious. Chicken And Chives Gyoza was a good dish but we felt it could do better with more flavours.
We absolutely loved the Herbs Marinated Chargrilled Prawn; the smoky aroma and flavour complemented the spicy garlic mayo in it. Next, we tried Tiger Prawn Tempura and we highly recommend it to all of you to try. While we were intrigued by the concept of Spicy Tomato and Burrata Cheese Risotto, the dish did not really impress our taste buds.
We ended our meal with Chocolate Hazelnut Fondant and Swan Pulled Cake, both of which gave a sweet and memorable finish to our meal.
Overall, our experience at Swan this time was good and the ambience would probably make us go back again.
