The Bridge – Tarawade Clarks Inn is multi cuisine restaurant situated off JM Road. It is part of the well-known hotel groups, Clarks Inn and they have hotels almost all over the country with their flagship in Delhi NCR.
The BTeam hosted its first blogger’s table at The Bridge in association with Rhythm Winery and Foodie app.
The evening started with the wine tasting where Mr. Akalpreet from Rhythm Winery explained us a few technicalities about the wine making and tasting process. Rhythm Winery has fruit based wines and the ones being served were Alphonso and Peach flavoured ones.
Being a teetotaller, I enjoyed clicking pictures of the wines. They have a really fruity essence to them. The wines were really loved by my fellow blogger friends.
We next had an array of the signature Indian dishes from The Bridge which included the Paneer Tikka, Paneer Hariyali Tikka, Mutton Sheekh Kebab and Fish Tikka.
The Paneer Tikka was a traditional preparation with soft paneer cubes marinated and grilled perfectly. There was a decent kick of the spices infused in the paneer during the marination. However, I felt the dish could use a little more seasoning.
The Paneer Hariyali Tikka was a decent dish. It had sandwiched paneer cubes in the traditional green marinade. Once again, the paneer was really soft and tender.
The Mutton Seekh Kebab was adequately spiced and cooked but it wasn’t quite exactly the melt in the mouth types.
The Fish Tikka was soft and char grilled to perfection. It had a good balance of spices and a decent amount of heat.
A green mint chutney and yoghurt served in shot glasses went along really well with these dishes.
For main course, we had the Veg. Biryani and the Mutton Biryani. A friend of The BTeam, Mr. Aprajit a.k.a. Biryani Master was the one we all sought out to for his verdict on the biryani. Most of us couldn’t agree more with him. The biryani was moist and flavourful. However it wasn’t as aromatic as expected. Also the mutton pieces were more bones and less meat. But we devoured all of the biryani that came our way! The side of raita took off the heat and tasted good.
For dessert, we were served a jumbo gulab jamun with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The gulab jamun was soft and had a good texture and went really well with the ice cream.
It was a great experience at The Bridge alongside fellow foodies. A little bit of improvement in the service would work wonders for the place.
A big thank you on behalf of The BTeam to Aprajit, Ashish, Anupam, Basant, Siddharth, Siddhartha, Saquib, Sarah and The Kukkad Diaries for making this event a grand success.
