Went to Shiro for dinner Tuesday night. I like the place. I think I go there 2-3 times a year. The menu is extensive and taste – very interesting.
This Tuesday night at Shiro’s was thru The Restaurant Week. Here for Rs. 1,200 + taxes + charges, for dinner you get a set menu to choose from. At Shiro, I got to choose a soup, appetizer, main course (selection of a gravy dish plus rice or noodle) and dessert. The Crispy seaweed and a portion of stir fried vegetables in chilies and basil were complimentary. Please note, the good part of this booking was, that each serving is lesser than what it is actually, if ordered ala carte. (Only because of this could I eat a 4 course meal!) I had perused the menu before making reservations. The menu seemed lovely and it did not let me down. I ordered vegetarian, while my partner ordered non-vegetarian – so – between us, we had a lot of food : )
My order for the night was Chili Lemon Soup – a clear tangy soup with a subtle hint of shiitake. Very good.
Appetizer – Vegetarian spicy California maki – Shiitake mushroom, cucumber & avacado in spicy Vietnamese sauce. Duck the sushi rolls in the dip and its nice. Loved the ginger pickle and wasabi alongside it.
Mains – Seasoned Korean styled tofu with vegetables and Yaki Udon noodles – The veg Yaki Udon noodles are Japanese stir fried noodles and vegetables in teriyaki and oyster sauce. MUST ORDER – THE UDON NOODLES. They are well flavoured and can be had by itself.
Dessert – Chocolate Sushi – a selection of sushi, flavoured with Bailey’s and Kahlua. Another MUST ORDER – Its alcohol flavoured mousse filled in finely made sushi rolls.
Complimentary were the crispy seaweed – interesting as I have not had something like this before and the side portion of stir fired vegetables in chilies and basil is excellent.
All the photos you see above were only for me! Awesome. I tried to do justice to the meal but just could not finish the some of the mains. The noodles and dessert serving plates, of course, were cleaned-out!
Now, my partner’s meal. His order was Thai Kwai soup – very well made.
Crispy fire cracker prawns – prawns marinated in spicy Korean sauce, wrapped in a spring roll sheet threads and fried. VERY GOOD – A MUST ORDER
Seasoned Korean styled stir fried chicken and Japanese steamed rice. Well flavoured.
Misissippi mud slide – good chocolate mudpie but it required another ladle of chocolate sauce.
The pics. Here goes-
The above was my partner’s meal, inclusive of the crispy seaweed and portion of stir fried veggies in chili and basil. He also ordered a Long Island Ice Tea. Priced at Rs. 600 + taxes + service charge, it was decent. (Cheval makes it better. See earlier post on Cheval)
Stuffed after a 2 hour long dinner, we drive back home – to sleep. A well enjoyed meal – thanks to Restaurant Week.
