Amara has been one of my favorite buffets in town. I’ve seldom been a buffet-kind of person yet Amara in Trident Hyderabad is one I’ve had my best of meals. It isn’t just about it’s extensive spread that Amara puts out but the freshness of the ingredients all which makes the food so much more delicious.
With the Coast to Coast promotion, Amara pays tribute to the freshest of seafood this time around. Mostly when restaurants do Coastal food promotions they concentrate on the coasts of India,but not Chef Manik and his team. Trust Chef Manik to think out of the box and cover the coasts of the world at Amara. It’s almost like docking at every port of entry of a new country with each dish.
From the shores of Marseille in France, the delizioso food of Italy, Caribbean Islands and Western Coasts of the US, the fiery, spicy and tangy food of the Asians and Indians, the buffet at Amara had it all. The soup section has been their strengths and this time too it didn’t disappoint. The Thai Coconut Chicken soup was especially wonderful. The Seafood Bar had us in glee with crabs, shrimps and extensive selection of fish with choices of dips and sauces.
Among the salads I especially enjoyed the seafood ceviche and shrimp cocktails. The Appetizers on our day at the buffet had Kerala style fried fish among other Asian starters. Now it was the Main Course which is the one going to leave you spoiled for choice. Oriental, Italian, Indian and Caribbean…phew it was task that I thoroughly enjoyed going through.
The highlight of the buffet was always going to be the seafood and it was the Gulf Coast Seafood Stew which stood out among them all. Notable mentions among the ones on my plate was the sweet and tangy Doi Maach of Bengal with plain rice and also the Phuket Massman Curry. As is my habit when dining at Amara, I had ordered up a plate of the ravioli. Amara is one of those restaurants which dishes up the best pasta ever as part of it’s best. In fact the one served at the buffet can beat any standalone restaurant a-la-carte dish while at it.
If you have a sweet-tooth,you’re going to be spoilt for choice here at Amara. It features nearly everything from Creme Brulee to Pastries to Mousse. The Coast to Coast promotion is on at Amara, Trident Hyderabad till the 30th of November 2016. Not a bad way to dine out in style to end the month of Movember.
