On a 'Thai' note

Pan-Asian has become one of the most popular cuisines among food lovers. With unique flavours that hit the right notes, many are heading out to indulge in the dishes at different restaurants in the City that serve them. However, ‘Shiro’ has been one of the few that have stood the test of time with their delicious combinations — stunning decor, soothing ambience and unique cocktails — as people keep coming back for more.

Giving their usual dishes a makeover, they are hosting a ‘Thai Food Festival’, which focuses on one main ingredient in the different categories of dishes they have. Each ingredient holds about two to three dishes that bring out the flavours as you bite, crunch and dwell on them. They say that the idea is to go back to the basics with an incredibly authentic and delicious Thai menu and celebrate the rich culture of the country. The culinary team has handcrafted menus that surely keep one wanting more.

Though it’s a limited menu, it focuses on six key flavours like ‘kaffir lime’, ‘bird’s eye chilli’, ‘Thai basil’, ‘lemongrass’, ‘coconut’ and ‘tamarind’. They also have cocktails that incorporate these ingredients, making it a good combination to wash down your food.

Try the ‘tamarind tofu in crispy cups’ which acts as an amuse-bouche as you bite into the small crunchy cups. For those who like the strong flavours of fish, the ‘Red Snapper with Spicy Sambal’ sure gives a kick to the palate. To keep it classic, the ‘lemongrass chicken satay’ gives the right amount of Thai flavours that will definitely keep you wanting more. Also, try their tempting dishes like the ‘steamed Chilean seabass’ which easily melts in your mouth and leaves a trail of flavours that you don’t want to get rid of. They also have an interesting twist to the regular grilled prawns with the ‘prawn on sugarcane skewers’ which is both spicy and sweet; it’s also fun to chew on the sugarcane once you’ve indulged in the prawns. One of the interesting drinks which was found to be a rather brilliant combination was the ‘Roaring Dragon’ that included white rum, mango and chilli flakes. Giving your palate the right run for your money, each dish that’s created seems to have been prepared with utmost precision that takes one on a wonderful culinary journey.

However, if you are not someone who wants to experiment with this menu, you can always opt for the regular menu which is also sure to put a smile on your face. Though the prices here are a bit heavy on the pocket, one might easily forget that, with the great service and spread of dishes. ‘Shiro’ is located at 222, UB City, Vittal Mallya Road.
