The Hyatt Bengaluru now serves you lunch in a box
The Mumbai dabbawallahs inspire the food business across the world. In fact, quite a few restaurants across the country even serve meals in a tiffin carrier, which pretty much is like an ode to the dabbawallahs.
The latest to join the brigade is the Hyatt Bengaluru. At their poolside all-day diner, Lido, you can now order a quick meal for lunch that will come to you in a tiffin carrier. All you have to do is choose from the vegetarian or the non-vegetarian section, from which you can again pick your meat — fish, mutton, or chicken — or egg.
We got the one with fish, and chicken. The meal is pretty basic; you get rice, rotis, dal, a few fried starters, some salad, the main curry, curd, and dessert, which is typically an Indian sweet.
So no, it’s not a gourmet spread that will take you by surprise, and it’s definitely not unique. But the meal is portioned well, and the chefs have definitely managed to get the ‘just like home’ concept right.
The chicken curry was quite delicious, and is generously
portioned. The spices were balanced, and it wasn’t unnecessarily spicy.
The fish curry on the other hand was sort of fashioned after a Bengali fish curry, and while it tasted rather decent, I’d have preferred if they chose a fish that Bengalis are actually known to eat, such as the rohu or the catla.
However, it’s a decent option to go for if you’re in the neighbourhood. Incidentally, we spotted a few resident guests enjoying their meal wholeheartedly. According to me, it beats having to pick from dozens of dishes on a buffet on most days.
`500 ++ upwards.
