Yesterday i went to a Mediterranean restaurant for dinner. There were some strange animals which I had never seen on the dinner table. The buffet at MYNT had some 50 items. A variety of salads and starters.
pickled octopus and mussels... fried beef and pork starters , which i didn't bother about...
shavrama chicken, chicken with pecan and walnut,,,,good for a start.
falafel, hummus, typically Greek, which I have heard only at Gokarna....
falafel is flat base pizza and hummus is peanut butter paste... (so i don't forget the taste later)
flavored molasses,,, the name sounded terrifying, but the taste wasn't very bad. little sour and tomato-ish.
back to the octopus.... i dipped it in white sour sauce and it tasted like chicken.
lamb, beef and pork chops...again I keep away from red meat.
i ordered a veg pizza as a part of the meal. it was flat base again with really thin slices of some random vegetable i couldn't recognize.
oysters in their original shells, baked and flavored, natural flavored and fruit flavored.... the baked flavored ones were good, like a pastry.
some fresh pita bread in different flavors and a rice-y item which I felt had a close resemblance to the good old "uppittu".
20 different items for dessert and i had a feeling it would catapult out if I felt greedy to shove them down.
managed to have some mint and chocolate flavored ( the only 2 flavors i love) mousse and truffles.... cursed the kachori chat i had in the evening, which had killed my appetite!
