The return of the Sizzler!

Sizzling across the streets of the city, lies one land, far far away (well for me) that brings to the table something that we crave for. A tasty retreat hidden away, revived after a short hiatus. Coupled with the golden liquid of fun, priced to fit your pockets, Double Tree Suites by Hilton is to be your next destination!

While I am done with word play, all I am trying to say is that the Sizzlers and Beer festival called the Sizzlers and Beer 2.0 is back at the Double Tree Suites By Hilton. Last seen in February, this festival is back on public demand and I see no reason for it to remain as regular here.

There are few places in the city that serve the perfect sizzler platters. It is very easy to mess up one. The meat could be burnt or over cooked, the sauce too less, or just too much of mashed potato! Over the years, we have seen many come and go, but the likes of Millers, Indijoe’s rule the roost and stay put.


At Asia Alive & the Equinox bar of the property, you get to enjoy just that. Perfect hot sizzlers for your taste buds and well cold beers to cool your tummies! Since I am a vegetarian like you all know, I could try the one with Tofu, Shitake, Brocolli and Baby Corn base with Hot Soya Chilli sauce and Veg Hakka Noodles and Hand cut chips on the side.  I moved away from the usual Paneer this time.
I am most definitely going back to try the others soon though!

For now, on the Sizzler I had, perfectly sauced, juicy broccoli that has the perfect smokiness along with grilled baby corn and Tofu. I do not enjoy Shitake because of its over powering taste and on a sizzler with a hot soya chilli sauce, I wouldn’t want another sour taste over powering it. The vegetables tasted extremely tasty with the sauce spread evenly. A little bit of Hot chili sauce adds to the spice. On the sides, I felt I could have chosen a fried egg instead of the Wedges, because they seemed like a misfit. Lesson for me.



The Hakka Noodles on the side however was like wine and cheese. Made for each other. Because of the oriental tastes of the sauce and vegetables, it balanced out the bitters for me.

On the meats, I hear from my peers that the Norwegian Salmon, Pomfret, Prawns and the Double Jack with BBQ or Teriyaki Sauce are a must try.


All this for how much?
Non Vegetarian @ Rs. 749 + Taxes
Vegetarian @ Rs. 649 + Taxes



The festival is on until the end of this month. So hurry up before this sequel goes off the screens!
