Swagath is no new name to the food and hospitality sector and is quite literally, a warm welcome into a good time with delicious food. It comes as no surprise then, that when their newest outlet at DLF Mall Of India invited me over, I had to accept it in the blink of an eye. I had an extravaganza presented to me as a Food Blogger.
The pre-set Menu that the folks had designed for a Blogger's Table encompassed the best of what all they had on offer, and each dish was relished. The taste as well as presentation of each dish was something to look forward to, being plated in a novel manner.
Begun the meal with their Kokum drink, with coconut powder mixed into it, and proceeded to the aesthetically presented appetizers:
Cigar Rolls: Served in glasses in a platter, rolls stuffed with various kinds of melted cheese (Mozzarella, Feta etc.). Quite a hot selling item at Swagath.
Mushroom Boom: Presented on a platter, these Mushroom Tikkas were presented as colorful lollipops, with Peri Peri Sauce.
Paneer Tikka Pudina: Flavorful chunks of cottage cheese marinated in Mint.
Murg Gulafi: Minced Chicken spiced with herbs.
Chicken Wings: Sauced up with BBQ style dip.
Also relished their Kiwi Heaven, presented with a cherry and a beach umbrella on its side.
For Main Course, we were presented with some of the gravies accompanied by a diverse Bread Basket:
Handi Murg: Quintessentially chicken, slow-cooked in Indian style.
Fish Koliwada: Spiced up and stylized in line with South India's prevalent taste.
Fish Malabari: Served along with authentic Malabari Parantha and Appam.
Paneer Lababdar: Again, an Indian Curry, with delicious chunks of Cottage Cheese.
Rounded up an excellent meal with desserts - Chocolate Brownie glazed with syrup, and Fried Ice-cream, coated with cornflakes - tried this one as a first and found it to be a burst of two distinct flavors on the palate.
I had a lovely time at Swagath and would like to believe that they carry the brand name's patronage for years to come, with this outlet and the rest.
