Chipstead at Taj Coromandel, Chennai.

Chipstead at Taj Coromandel, Chennai.

The best pub in chennai and why I say so? because one of the few places that serves spirits along with fresh fruits, fresh herbs and fresh vegetables and this is something that is not common in Chennai.

We were there on the eve of Valentines Day and we could find the place getting all geared up for the special day. One of the specials for valentine’s day is,
The Love Nest that was made with Champagne, vodka, watermelon, basil leaves, lime and sugar syrup this drink is served inside a watermelon, with some round chunks of watermelon.

Green is the colour for waiting and if you are still waiting, this is the ideal drink. Eve’s First Kiss – made with Zucchini, lemon grass, Bacardi rum, lime and simple syrup. Amazing refreshing flavor the highlight was the straw that was made of lemongrass stem.

Flirtini made with Fresh Carrot, vodka, lime and caramel syrup was another of my favorite. And if valentine’s day is just about flirting and you are not ready to get committed, go for it, change in decisions do happen.

Valentine Spice made with Bacardi rum, tender coconut, pineapple chunks, five spice powder. This definitely will add more spice to your relationship, another of my favorites. A very interesting flavor of freshness and spice served inside a tender coconut!

The Lady Killer made with Champagne, vodka, strawberry and mint sure is a true killer. Taste and looks go hand in hand and real lady drink!

The Love Machine made with Jack Daniel’s honey, almond milk, cardamom, mint leaves and saffron was the highlight of the evening. The magic in Arun’s hands totally floored us with this drink. Subtle flavors of every ingredient blended to take us to paradise.

All the drinks are priced at RS.675/-

Chipstead has warm ambiance, service par excellence ( that is typically Taj) food and drinks curated with love and perfection!
Special mention to Mr. Manoj Mishra, Mr. Tilak Mehta, Ms. Manvi Chopra and Mr. Arun. Keep giving Chennai the best hospitality, we love it!

Golden Dragon at Taj Coromandel, Chennai.

Golden Dragon at Taj Coromandel has launched its new menu and oh my god, it’s just amazing.

There are not many restaurants in India that serve authentic Chinese food. But am glad that Golden Dragon does it and has an expat chef who ensures it’s authentic till his last shout!

The ambience and service I think need not be mentioned at all. Taj is one of those few hotels that gives service the utter most importantance and they take pride in doing so.

My evening started with a warm welcome and amuse bouche- Asparagus and water chestnut with sweet bean sauce.

The soup had to follow. Spicy peanut butter soup, that just slipped through my throat, pipping hot and yummy!

The starters were a mix on veg and non vegetarian, each with its unique flavour, spice, texture and crunch.

Baked Taro with black pepper and honey was a perfect blend of hot and sweet. Extremely appealing to one’s eyes and palate.

Duet of Asparagus with white garlic sauce was very subtle in flavour,I personally loved the flavour.

Steamed Lo Hon ( rice paper rolls) this dish was soft from outside and crunchy inside with veggies. This is available gluten free. I loved the soy sauce drizzled on top though.

The Beijing onion cake is a dish that I have never heard or had before. And boy! it was so yummy, it crumbled like butter cookie and the soft onion’s inside just melted in my mouth. A must try new dish.

Moving to the non vegetarian starters.

The juicy crab dumpling was soft succulent and sweet. The freshness of the crab comes from the sweet taste of the crab. And it was perfect!

The Beijing pan fried chicken was made to perfection and was garnished with garlic, this enhanced the flavour of the chicken.

The fried lamb shanks with black bean chilli sauce, not only looked good but tasted perfect. Crusty from outside and well done inside.

And the highlight of my dinner and my most most favourite dish was the sliced lamb with ginger and kailan. This is a must try if you like subtle flavor. I just fell in love with this dish. Last and the best for a beautiful evening!
