Bangalore has some of the biggest global names in the hospitality industry opening their chains. Hilton Bangalore is also one of the names that have arrived recently. It is strategically located inside one of the top IT parks in town Embassy Golf Links.
The hotel has already captured the hearts of Bangaloreans with their sprawling premises, interesting food combinations and impeccable service! Recently we were invited to try out the there Restaurant: Ministry of Food and Recess the 24 hours coffee shop that had Doughnuts and Milk Festival.
We were greeted there by Head Chef Anirban Dasgupta and Sous Chef Subhash Jana. Though located in the Embassy golf links, the tranquility and serenity inside the property is well maintained with the pool in the middle and some private cabanas and soon to be outdoor grill.
We were treated to some wonderful doughnuts. I loved the presentation for the same! This is a pure Chocolate doughnut, which is made in the shape of a sick patient lying on hospital bed. The Chocolate doughnut is given a syringe shot of Cointreau – orange liquor. This was complimented with a couple of sweet tablets and syrups served in test tubes. This was the highlight of evening for me!
Next up was the Red Velvet with Frozen Milk Popsicles. This was an amazing take on the traditional Red Velvet dessert, which was perfectly made without any issue of it being over sweetened. The milk Popsicle served along with it reminded me of chuskis that we used to have in our childhood!
Another very interesting doughnut was Doughnut sandwich with Chocolate & Nutella Patty! Can you imagine that pineapple sticks could be served like French fries and raspberry sauce could be served as Tomato Ketchup? Well that’s exactly what happened here! I loved the way Pastry Chef Roshan Mendonsa and Executive Chef Anirban Dasgupta have planned the Doughnuts and Milk promotion menu in a very unique way!
Sous Chef Subhash Jana and Chef De Cuisine Ajeet Kumar greeted us very warmly and took us on a gastronomical tour of Hilton Bangalore via it’s 24-hour coffee shop Recess and the aptly named Ministry of Food about which I will be writing another detailed post! Other doughnuts at Re:cess were The Hilton Cronuts, The Black Forest Doughnut and The Coorg Coffee Doughnut.
Pastry Chef Roshan Mendonsa heard that one of our food bloggers eats only eggless stuff so he went out of way to create an amazing sugar doughnut with chocolate sauce for him. I loved this personalized attention and service to each guest! Hilton Bangalore is definitely the new destination for culinary enthusiasts right in the heart of Bangalore!
