Offerings on the latest fare list of Kylin’s Sky are worth trying

Good food, great ambience and a nice companion, what else one needs in life? Such was an experience when I went to review the newly launched menu of Kylin’s Sky bar at Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj. Light breeze complimented the terrace seating and made the whole experience worth remembering.

New menu done by Under One Roof Hotel Consultants under the aegis of Manu Mohindra assured that it would be exciting and it was. Manu is a dear friend and one of my best companions when it comes to sharing a table not food.

The new fare had a good mix of Southeast Asian dishes offering yakitoris, robata grills, sushis, dimsums, meal in a bowl and clay pot meals.

I started with a chicken meat ball yakitori which had a perfect balance of soy sauce and sugar. I loved every bit of it and finished two skewers in no time. But the one I liked even more was garlic yakitori, a simple and healthy preparation.

While Manu explained me what speed cooking is, having witnessed it in Bangkok, I speedily gulped down a couple of sushis stunning other people and making them wonder as to where they had vanished. Well that’s the art of speed eating!

Before the mains I tried couple of burgers, yes burgers but with Asian flavours. I didn’t have high expectations but a bite into the teriyaki tenderloin burger changed my perception. Perfect glazing sauce complimented the tenderloin. Even the twice cooked duck burger in plum sauce was worth every bite. The two items stood out and I hope they would definitely become the most selling dishes from the new menu.

I hardly had any space left but drunken fish cooked at the table with flambé and all the drama was exciting enough to give a try. It became more exciting as chef asked me to cook and I seriously did it step by step. I guess I cooked it well as Manu had it till it was over. Clay pot lamb with sticky rice was also worth eating. I liked how they do their clay pot with lots of veggies like potato, radish, lotus stem which gave it a stew like texture.

I thought I finished my meal for the day as desserts in Asian cuisine restaurant is one thing I give a miss. But Manu insisted to try their flambéed yakitori with banana caramel cooked then and there at the table. I am glad he offered me as it was something I had for the first time and just fell in love with it.

Meal for two Rs 1500 plus taxes.
