The moment our eyes set on its façade, we knew we’re in for a treat. Step inside and this swanky new addition to the reviving Ansal Plaza will blow your mind away. Elegant interiors that play with warm tones of hues and a brick wall on one side add up to the posh quotient of Trend Bar & Kitchen.
So if it’s some chill time with friends and colleagues you are looking at, grab the couches, or get the tables booked for your family dinner out. Don’t worry, there are separate tables for dates too baba.
Since we were in a mood to splurge and pamper our taste buds, we ordered in plenty. The chef likes to call it the progressive cuisine with a twist, which we experienced in totality ourselves! So we started with Chicken Tikka Trilogy and Puffed Aloo Chaat.
Ohkay, the Chicken Tikka Trilogy is a non-vegetarian’s dream come true with Classic Chicken Tikka, Truffle Malai Tikka, and Chicken Mustard Tikka coming together in one platter; while the Puffed Aloo Chaat is this crispy tandoor air fried fruit chaat (low on calories yay) and is just perfect for the health conscious (and chatoras like us).
Extremely light to have, it is tangy, spicy, sweet and sour at the same time, and the addition of pomegranates adds a zing to the aftertaste of each bite. Falooda 2.0 that would take you back to your childhood and is made with French Vanilla, sev, basil seeds, jello and rose espuma.
Hungry for more we ordered for some Three cheese soufflé in potato cup and Goat Cheese Tikki.
The Three cheese soufflé in potato cup is a delightful surprise and can easily pass off as a regular wedge, but one bite into it and you know – the fried asparagus inside the batter is the twist in the tale (sorry bata diya hehe)!
Their Goat Cheese Tikki is the cutest tiny burger in the world where you can have multiple in one go. The use of tandoori Asian pear as patty is a palatable twist in the tale, with baby rucola salad.
Ab meetha toh banta hai, so we opted for some Classic Crème Brûlée and oh my gawd it was heaven! The strawberry and caramel shorbet with passion fruit and crème brûlée with tandoori fruits is a taste we can’t even describe. You HAVE to try it!
Trust us, Trend Bar and Kitchen is where you head to for a pampered time! It’s chic, it’s classy and it’s sets a bar for others in the league. Luxurious, yet spacious with a great playlist in the background, this place sets just the right mood!
