Ensconced in an elegant Delhi hotel, Café on 3 serves delectable snacks and beverages as well as cocktails and spirits for alcohol lovers. Occupying a large area, it accommodates approximately a hundred guests. The place has a well spread-out buffet; however, À la carte is a fine bet as well. There is a wide range of wines and cocktails for you to choose from, in case you want to catch up for a couple of drinks.
I visited Café On 3, a 24 hrs dining eatery at Holiday Inn, Mayur Vihar to experience Kerala Kitchen – Food Festival. The ambiance, the decor, and the music, reminds you of the vibes that Kerala has to offer. The buffet by Master Chef Rejimon, offered various signature delicacies from different parts of Kerala giving a memorable experience for the guests. The live station for starters offered Kane Fry (Lady Fish) & Koon Nirache Rathiri (Prawn cutlet) served with four kind of dips/chutneys. It was full of flavors and I couldn’t resist second helping. The salad station had various veg and non-veg options with dressings and dips. I tried the non-veg soup and it was really nice with flavor of coconut & chunks of seafood. For main course there were many dishes to choose from. I had Mutton Roast (with Black Pepper Masala), Chicken & Rice dumplings and Vada curry which I relished with Malabar Parantha and Appams. The Seafood Biryani was yumm. In dessert section, besides cakes and puddings, there were some local sweets – khoya burfi, and laddoo worth trying. Overall a memorable experience.
We were here for the Kerala Food Festival recently. And to say, that we were impressed much, will be an understatement. Being a Kerala food lover, it was a a difficult thing to do, to resist this festival. We started our evening with a round of Prawn Tikkis, served with three different dips. Cripsy outer layer encasing soft, succulent prawn meat, it was a first for me and loved every bite of it. It was actually quite a delicious start to the evening. Soon, we proceeded to the main course. Sea food biryani, mutton roast and chicken gravy. Every single preparation with its signature taste was a celebration of flavours. From the mildly flavoured biryani to the mutton preparation with robust flavours, just the right combination. Loved every bite of it. But then, it was not the complete menu. The fish had a wide range for the fish lovers too. Something I am not too fond of. So gave it a skip. Add to it, an extremely courteous and competent service by the entire staff. Together, it made our evening so very memorable. Loved every bit of it. Go for it.
The Kerelan food buffet is a must visit for everyone. You'll be spoilt for choices, and tasting everything will satisfy both your taste buds and the belly. Heading up to the third floor, this restaurant is placed just beside the outdoor pool. It is simple yet elegant in it's decor and ambiance. It was very comfortable to sit. For food, first we tried the Kane Fry and a fish preparation. The fish was full of bones, but a simple cut of the knife separated the delicious meat from the bones. The Kane Fry was mashed prawns made into tikki, and then fried. It didn't lose its original bite and added new layer of flavour. The salad spread present there was one to enjoy with numerous combinations, with options of dressing, dips, assortments!! One needs time to choose the best option to suit their preferences and liking. Don't miss out on the hummus. The soup present there was again of Keralan origin, made with fish and had a strong essence of coconut. The Malabar Parantha and Chicken Stew live counter was full of zest and zeal, with chefs churning out paranthas and Appams for the diners. The Chicken Stew on offer was not that great of a dish, but the paranthas were a total joy. For main course, there were a variety of options for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. There was a leaf wrapped Chicken, tender and full of flavour!! The desserts that made us starry eyed! It was just amazing to have such a huge variety of delicious desserts. We also took home a Chocolate Truffle Pastry from the bakery outside. It was topped with tempered chocolate and chocolate ganache. Probably the best truffle pastry I've ever had. Visit there for its Sunday brunch, as pool is also open.
We had dinner one night here. The food was excellent and the choice varied. The european fest was on when we visited,
When you combine a family get together which happens once in a couple of years with a brunch, you want everything to be pitch perfect specially when you have people from children to very senior citizens . Holiday Inn staff was exemplary in helping us with an absolutely eclectic mix of starters , salds and mains which was succulent , tasty , well crafted . The highlights were the chettinadu , dimsum starters for the elders. Kids enjoyed the pastas , pizzas and the starters considerably. Right from the time you enter the hotel, restaurant and through the courses, the staff were on attention , the service was impeccable making it an absolutely cherishable experience.
