Gharana Delights with Ethnic Fervour – Dining Trendz
Street Food Nights offer variety and fun
Dubai residents are a little spoiled for choice, with cuisine from the Indian sub-continent. The popular Indian restaurant, Gharana at Holiday Inn Dubai – Al Barsha, aims to coax diners out of their routine with four different regional menus: An intriguing invitation for guests to choose and relish various flavours.
This year, Holiday Inn Dubai – Al Barsha re-appointed Sameh Awad as its executive chef to expand the culinary menus and enhance the reputation of the hotel as a dining destination with unique food and beverage concepts to suit a wide range of tastes.
The Street Food Night menu at Gharana is as mouth-watering as the kebabs, chaats and tantalising biryanis that will whisk you away to the authentic tastes of India.
Saturdays will see a twist to Gharana’s regular cuisine bringing a novel experience of the ‘Galliyas’ (Streets) of Hyderabad, Punjab, Jaipur and Lucknow in a specialty ‘Food Night’. Diners can enjoy the pick of street eats with a wide variety of options to choose from.
The Restaurant Manager, Ramesh Padmanabhan said, “Street food, but in greater variety, is as integral to India as the shawarma to Dubai or the hot dog to Chicago. Road-side vendors, mobile carts and stalls sell the freshest snacks with great panache and spirit. The preparation of the food is as much of a show as its taste. We give you a hands-on experience at Gharana where live cooking stations will transport you to the bustling lanes of Hyderabad, Punjab, Jaipur and Lucknow that come alive with the most appealing aromas attracting people from far and near.”
To make the most of the environment, Gharana infuses melodies from the mountains and the seas along with Gulzar – internationally acclaimed flutist – dishing out lilting live tunes on his flute.
No Indian food experience can be complete without delectable sweets at the end. The Punjabi Gulab Jamun and Matka Falooda, the Lucknowi Lychee Rabdi and Kemami Zarda Pulao, and the Hyderabadi Phirnee promise to leave a pleasant taste in your mouth long after they are savoured.
The hotel, located near the Mall of the Emirates, and in close proximity to Media City, Internet City and the Dubai Marina, has established a reputation for quality dining featuring Thai, Japanese and international cuisine as well as Indian specialities.
