Eat Street of the World - the global street food festival currently happening at Amara. The festival showcases some known favorites and some new ones I got to try. The festival is on till 27th of May and is available for dinner.
From the Indian offering I really enjoyed the Lakhanpur ke bhalle, reminded me of the South Indian style bonda, the live counter with pav bhaji, dhabeli and bhel Puri. The main course included some well made chole bhature and litti chokha. The Tex Mex offerings had some interesting dishes. I loved the picante banana peppers stuffed with beans and batter fried, the mini sandwiches with tomato soup aced for presentation and the sliders were good.
From the Mediterranean offerings I loved the mezze platter which is almost always available at the buffet, didn't try anything else.
What really stole the show was the Asian offering. Everything from the chicken satay to the som tam, ramen in a vegetable broth, sticky rice bowls with meat ball soup and the outstanding chicken bao was excellent.
The dessert counter had a good assortment of Representatives as well. There was Mishti doing, churros, mango sticky rice, raspberry gelee stuffed crepes to choose from.
Food festivals are a good chance to showcase food from a region, rarely does street food get this kind of representation. If you're in for something different to try, do drop in at Amara for a treat.
