The food festival was held at their Oriental Hotspot- Spice. The venue/ ambiance is lovely, serene and offers a great spot for personal dining and formal too.
Here's the few glimpse from the table-
The Menu for the evening. The veg Menu, and the crispy wine to welcome the tabler-s. The red candle holder looks cute and matches the setting.
The hot soups served as appetizers. I loved both of them. Visually the tofu bean curd soup was more enticing.
Here's the glimpse of the table set for media along with live Teppanyaki cooking counters. "Teppanyaki" is a Japanese word which refers to dishes cooked using iron "Teppan" plate, including streak, shrimp, okonomiyaki, Yakisoba and Monjayaki. "Yaki" essentially means grilled, boiled or pan fried.
The table used here is a modern Teppanyaki grill, a typically propane-heated flat surface grills , widely used to cook food in front of guests at dining. The solid griddle type cook surface is more suitable for ingredients like rice, egg, finely chopped vegetables. Soybean oil is primarily used for such Teppanyaki grills. The chef at JW Mariott even used chicken and vegetable broth to fine tune the grilling.
In the veg- Teppanyaki Onion rings, baby corn, mushroom and Zucchini. The recipe and cooking was as simple as word goes. Some broken- stir fried rice to add to the main course.
|The Chef in action|
The Japanese Food festival at JW Mariott was a good show. The ambiance, the setting and food were just right. For me it served as a best place to catch up with friends and business associates for a hearty chat where food is not focus but setting and catching up is more important.
Would I go there again? May be Yes.
