Tamra, opened on the Shangri-La lodge on Janpath, takes its identify very severely. Which means copper in Sanskrit, the restaurant is finished up in additional than 50 shades of the tone, and way more tastefully than a sure ebook collection.
The cavernous interiors boast theatre kitchens for every delicacies served (Japanese, Thai, Chinese language, European and Indian all lined, or fairly, laned up) with cooks cooking earlier than your very eyes. There’s additionally a luxuriantly lengthy bar for the dipsomaniacs amongst us. The seating space is an oasis of calm, segregated by glass panels and organized into each cosy nooks in addition to elaborate desk spreads. A buffet unfold, the tables virtually groaning underneath the load of the provender, acts as a pure barrier between the 2 sections. The service, just like the crockery and tablecloths, is pristine.
We first head to the buffet, deciding to complement our fare with a number of the a la carte menu (patrons can select between both, or like us, bask in each). We pack our platter excessive with an assortment of dishes (a each day altering affair, we’re advised, very similar to Giacomo Casanova’s) too many to enumerate right here, within the curiosity of brevity. Nevertheless, there may be one merchandise, which like Cthulhu however way more palatably, will stalk our goals at evening. Basically a porcine hummus, it includes liquified pork in a shot glass, and is deliciousness distilled. We return for seconds. And thirds. There may need been a fourth time, which we’ve blocked out in disgrace.
Off the menu, we dally with the Thai Rooster Croquetas, effectively marinated rooster diskettes served diner-style in a deep fryer tray (although there may be nothing greasy about them). These are accompanied by a chunky and curiously chatoyant peanut sauce which inspires to you, like that common tea model jingle, to dip, dip, dip.
Dessert includes the signature Tamra Chocolate; much like a chocolate bombe, attended to by items of crunchy peanut brittle and different accoutrements, the dish is completed a le gueridon, poured over with a heat decadent sauce which transmutes your entire pudding into an inchoate chocolatey mess. To cite Jamie Oliver (solely this as soon as, we promise): delish.
