Burrp – Cuisine Crawl, Masterclass & more at Airport!

The sight of people waiting for their loved ones to arrive, a bunch of people with their cabin bags and luggage, people waiting for their turn to board the flights, cops, security guards,  air hostess, and others… The cool breeze, lush greenery, souvenir shops, a chain of eating houses, taxis and more…  How astounding it is to be at the airport!

Everybody loves food walk, but what makes it more interesting is “An Airport Foodwalk!” Along with fellow food bloggers, we were all set to enter the Airport. In no time we set our foot into the airport as all the security measures were taken care. This was the first time we went out on a food walk organized by team Burrp and we have to say that we were lifted off the air with their job. There are multiple restaurants open on Domestic and International Terminals, out of which three restaurants were on our list.

Tiffin Centre was our first stop, a restaurant well known for it’s South Indian delicacies. It’s on the upper level of Domestic Terminal. It is popular for its ambiance and authenticity in terms of  preparation of recipes and taste. The ingredients used are imported from the place of origin and every dish has it’s own story to tell. ‘Wall of Chillies’, Chettinad columns, wooden interiors are few of the highlighting features of this place.

On the menu we had, Piping hot Rasam and Nannari Sherbet for appetizers continued with Mirchi Bhajji and Masala Vada. On the other side of the non-vegetarian platter, we had Rava Fish Fry and Chicken Lollipop. Also, we got to see the complete meal platter.

A few steps ahead and you find yourself at La Alta Vita, an Italian restaurant. The bright interiors, green wall, and hanging lamps are few elements that caught our attention.

Olive, Tomato, and Cheese Bruschetta is not to miss if you’re at an Italian restaurant, especially here. Chicken Arancini, fried rice ball stuffed with chicken is something that we liked! Zucchini Fritters, Zucchini fried to perfect crisp and went along with the dip.

The last stop for the day was at La Tapenade, a Mediterranean Cafe which overlooks the International Terminal. They are known for sandwiches, fresh baked bread, cheesecakes, fresh fruit juices and wide varieties of pizzas.

The most exciting part of the walk was masterclass held by executive Chef Murali who taught us how to prepare Penne in Pomodoro sauce, Moroccan Couscous & Chicken Tagine. Also, Chef threw light on different parts of Mediterranean region, their food styles and especially about Moroccan dishes. Though there were restrictions in using fire, knives, and other cutlery, Chef pulled off a great show.

The three restaurants – Tiffin Centre, La Alta Vita, and Le Tapenade are managed by HMS Host who specialize in Airport restaurants all over the world. With the team’s way of managing things, it was hard to believe that this was Burrp’s  first venture in organizing food walks. Three cheers to the entire team for making it a great journey.

Antarastriya

Antarastriya – The name itself strikes differently, which stands for International. This is one of the few places that serves different cuisines at whopping prices. Placed at same road as the famous CTR Hotel, this pulls a lot of crowd. I’ve been here for a couple of times and each time it left me speechless. The menu card has been changed lately and now they serve new dishes. The few new additions that caught my eyes were the Black Magic Mocktail, new varieties of momos and Baby Corn Manchurian with Honey Chilli dip.

We have tried a lot of dishes and each one them are unique in their own way. The ones that caught our taste buds are

1. Veg Bullet – Few vegetables chopped into fine pieces, boiled and finally fried in oil with a covering. It is served with chilli and sweet tomato sauce.

2. Chinese Bhel – The chinese version of bhel, served with freshly sliced vegetables and a sauce.

3. American Chopsuey

4. Momo Manchurian – Fried momos are then made into manchurian just like the Gobi Manchurian. The momo is stuffed with onions, which is surprising because we can’t make it out.

5. Babycorn Manchurian with Honey chilli Dip – It’s a Babycorn Manchurian sauced with Honey. The dish tastes spicy and sweet at the same time.

6. Last but not the least, Alfredo White Pasta. It is one of the best pasta that I’ve come across. The white sauce is perfect in terms of taste and consistency.

And now for some mocktails,

1. Blue Sizzler

Most of the dishes taste amazing while some need a little work. They serve in eco-friendly plates which is a great way to reduce the plastic usage. The place has got an overhaul since my last visit, but they still haven’t managed to fix the rain problem. The walls have got new painting which features “Wonders of the World”. They placement of umbrellas to tackle the rain is great idea, but it’s not sufficient. The staff are friendly and food gets prepared once you order them! The ambience is well maintained. They have broken the max 50 and went forward with many new items. Finding a parking place is a problem as the road gets filled up easily.

Not to forget the paintings and umbrellas.
