THE AFFAIR - EXUBERANT ONE !!!
Amongst star properties, the less explored yet vested with massive premises and many a time people do tend to google is Hyatt Hyderabad Gachibowli. I have heard about its massive premises and amazing facilities but somehow didn't get to visit and explore. Recently was here on their new menu launch #Teppanyaki live kitchen at their collage restaurant which is already a crowd puller for their lavish buffets. After getting introduced with the new team on board, Prakruti Jain , Executive Chef Jitendra Nakhwa , and known lovely Chefs Pawan Manhas and sous-chef Shankar, we sat down into what turned a magical performance by this little thin but a powerful pataka called Birbal. He was to mainly featuring the making of dishes under their Teppanyaki menu and man he put on a fantastic show with his cutlery and fire skills <3 Amazing engagement.
A COMPLETE CULINARY MARVEL BY CHEF VIGNESH
Irrespective of delectable food fests and events buzzing all across the Hyderabad, a foodie like me craves for a complete meal that blows you out in terms of innovation or culinary complexity or the overall experience or taking Indian cuisine a notch above. I think the Foodie Gods answered my prayers to have it all in one shot. Green Park Hotel known for its legacy in fine dining places was more known towards their haleem and midnight buffet. In comes a tornado named Chef Vignesh who has joined as Culinary director and has put in some amazing tasting menus in their Once Upon A Time - Hyderabad. Went to taste them on Chef's invite and I should say without a doubt - "ITS THE BEST OVERALL MEAL AND EXPERIENCE I HAVE HAD IN 2019".
ALONG THE NH2 - OKRA, MARRIOTT
Hyderabad always craves for more street food and people from other states complaint about its scene not like Kolkata or Delhi. We never to get see a glimpse of reality. Well fear not, NH2 Highway Trials by Hyderabad Marriott Hotel and Convention Centre is here to do exactly that for our foodies. Chef and his crew travelled for 10 days non-stop from Delhi to Kolkata to explore the highway street food scenes with immaculate details and this "NH2 Trials" replicates most part of it. Bringing the delicacies alongside - Delhi - Mathura- Agra - Allahabad - Varanasi - Kanpur - Dhanbad - Kolkata , this fest is literally ONE OF A KIND FEAST as there are around 15+ stalls in the pool side of OKRA and you will be literally lost in choosing where to start.

Heavenly Himalayan Trials & Bidri, Marriott
When food connects with your inner soul a chord of symphony strikes and its not often to experience. Heavenly Himalayan Trail Food festival hosted by Hyderabad Marriott Hotel and Convention Centre might as well struck that chord at the right time. Under guidance of executive Chef Aungshuman Chakraborty , Chef Pawan Manhas who basically is from punjab but has roots and connections in himalayan areas, bestowed with the responsibility of understanding the cuisine from homes and bring back ingredients and recipes that would prove "NO CUISINE IS LESS THAN THE OTHER".
Crab Factory at Spice Junxion, Taj Deccan
Sea food lovers do know the joy as well as the mess you relish while dining with crabs. Its a skill that many like me explore or even show interest. Being a sea food lover myself, I restrain many a times eating CRABS due to this challenge and today I feel how much I have lost to create such CRAB-tastic memories.. Taj Deccan is currently hosting "CRAB FACTORY" at Spice Junxion for month long promotion. You get to see live crabs being picked up on your order and your choice of recipe from their comprehensive menu (last but one pic) or if you have any other personal preference. Priced at 3.50 INR / gram, its then weighed and with a wait time to prepare, the dish is made fresh and hot for you. Chef Rishi Manucha engages about the recipes and how each dish differs from another and yet the menu gives you everything for a proper dining experience. Live Crabs, fresh food, amazing signature dishes, crisp menu, sharp flavors and above all delicious KAKINADA CRABS (fresh catch every day) - What else do you need !!!!
