‘But I am a Vegetarian’! This was my confused answer when I was invited to the Indo-Japanese food festival at Sora Jima,Accord Metropolitan,T Nagar. After reassuring that they can satisfy a vegetarian’s soul, I decided to experience the festival on a saturday night along with my foodie buddies.
I reached the restaurant and was stunned by the beautiful view of Chennai. Being a roof top, private dining restaurant, this seemed like a perfect spot for some alone time with your partner..who of course loves Japanese food!
I see the menu and I was Intrigued!! PANEER TIKKA SUSHI, JAPANESE BIRYANI? The only three words which immediately popped up in my mind was, ‘BRING IT ON’!
Tofu Clear Soup
Starters – Paneer Tikka Sushi
Starters- Vegetable Tempura
Starters -Crispy Rice with Spicy Paneer
Main course – Japanese Veg Biryani
Innovation at it’s best. I was so impressed with the Biryani where the rice was cooked with Bamboo shoot and exotic vegetables.The Interview with Big FM that followed, I was talking about the Biryani…only about the Biryani!
Main course – Saute Vegetables
I was spoilt for choices in the dessert section but I had to leave early. You can check out my fellow food blogger’s reviews for both dessert and non vegetarian recommendations ( Read Asmi’s , Read Ajit’s and Navina’s.)
Overall, it is an event not to be missed. The Festival is till August 7th! So go ahead, try their Indo-Japanese cuisine and let me know how you liked it!
PS : Yes, Vegetarians can survive in Japan provided you take Chef Gaurav and Chef Dipesh with you
