Coming to food recommendations, we absolutely loved their ‘Makki Ki Roti & Sarson Ka Saag Tostadas’ served with Kachumber salsa, hung yogurt, and jalapeno. A brilliant modern take on this traditional delicacy from Punjab. The flavors explode in your mouth, leaving you wanting one more., it's the perfect way to start your gastronomic journey here.
The very refreshing ‘Tandoori Root Vegetable Salad’ featuring toasted Pistachios, Arugula and Micro Greens is an amazing medley of crisp flavors that hits just the right spot.
Innovations of the menu don’t stop there as for cocktails you can choose from a variety of classic cocktails, most of which feature Glass’s signature culinary style of marrying regional Indian flavors with contemporary accents. Our favorites from the extensive selection include lip-smacking Whisky based concoctions like the Pomegranate Rush (with Whisky, Pomegranate juice, lemon, cherry bitters and kombucha) & Southern Spice (with Whisky, Ginger, Curry Leaf, Chilli & Ginger Ale).
Dessert lovers are sure to have a gala time here, as they have an entire section on the menu dedicated to ‘Sweet Endings’. From start to finish, the dishes and the interpretation of Indian flavors are spots on, a fact that is quite evident from their range of innovative desserts. The Rasmalai Brûlée with Yoghurt & Caramel is a divine creation that tops our must-have list.
And the Mysore Pak Cheesecake with Fresh Fruits is yet another exemplary & insanely decadent testimony to Chef Saha’s knack for reimagining classic Indian recipes with a modern touch.
