Your guide to choosing the best that Restaurant Week offers

While properties like Restaurant week have been popping up ever so often, this was the first time that I actually went for it. A cool concept to bring in new customers to sample a specific menu to showcase the culinary brilliance of the restaurant. The journey gets exciting, specially now since there are many specialty cuisine restaurants in the city.

Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese- step brothers of Chinese cuisine. So while you have till Sunday (26th Sept) to book your reservations, here’s how to choose from the crowd.

RULE#1 REMOVE RESTAURANTS ALREADY VISITED 

The real purpose for me is to discover new places, that I usually would not go to because of distance, lack of knowledge and comfort. I like to use this as a one time pass for the restaurant to woo me.

RULE #2 LOOK UP CUISINES NEVER TRIED BEFORE

Be sure to look up some of the Korean, Oriental and even some Indian cuisines like Bihari, Mizo or Naga-  places that can help you discover regional tastes. Curated menus also help you learn food etiquette ( eg: how to rest your chopsticks, how dunking sushi in soya sauce is not the authentic way of eating it)

RULE#3 LOOK OUT FOR GOOD DEALS

A majority of the time, booking yourself at the fine dining places in 5 star hotels, can turn out to be a steal. You can save close to 50% by visiting on account of RW. Despite the fact that you are eating a set menu, if you particularly like a place, it’s bound to make you happy.

RULE #4 DON’T STOP AT ONE 

Since it’s a week long affair, make sure to book atleast 2 experiences to help you make a better choice next time.  One experience can leave you feeling indifferent.

RULE#5 

Even if you’re booking a place you know, be sure to check their menu out. I find, the choice of vegetarian, meats , sauces and unique combinations  helps me zero into the kind of experience I would like to book.

 

From the 2 places I experienced at this Restaurant week- I am sure to be a regular at one!
