The Lalit Food Truck Company

posted in: Events | 0

If you stay in Delhi, you might have spotted a red coloured food truck with white and yellow stripes that renders it the look of 70’s flower power zooming at full speed in the streets. That is The Lalit Food Truck. Albeit, the street food has always been an integral part of India’s culinary experience that serves a smorgasbord of preparations and meals that have always satiated the palate. Additionally, they have never been heavy on the wallet.

The Lalit Food Truck Company

In order to give a new dimension to India’s rich and vast street food, Keshav Suri, the youngest Director at The Lalit Suri Hospitality Group came up with the idea of The Lalit Food Truck. His globetrotting experiences made him see this as an opportunity to fulfill street food cravings. Hence, materialized India’s answer to the world’s EAT STREET. He is the driving force to bring the US culture of Eat Street to India with a twist to complement India’s changing eating habits and mannerisms.

The Lalit Food Truck with its breezy appearance, modish kitchen that sizzles and glows, and jaunty staff that serve Tex-Mex tidbits with handpicked ingredients and cooking expertise are sure to send your taste buds on a sapid ride. The menu encompasses a whole range of Mexican food ranging from crunchy and zesty tacos to juicy and flavor some tortilla wraps. However, if your palate fancies something that is not Mexican then the burgers, the hand cut fries and the falafels come to the rescue.  After a long day of work, the sweet and sugary Churros will seize the lassitude out of you.

If you are wondering that all these savories would cause a burn in your pocket, then you are wrong. The only burn that it’ll ever cause is in your friend’s gustatory cells when you tell him about your experience here. Ishita, a college student who recently visited The Lalit Food Truck says, ”They say Good Food makes Good Mood. Every time, I have visited the truck, I have been struck in a good way. The service is prompt and the food too is great.”

After the initial success of the Food Truck in Delhi, we launched another Food Truck in Bangalore. Jalapeno omelette sandwich, fiery vegetable chimichanga and Chicken Quesadilla are the new Mexican mouthwatering entries to this menu. You may cheat your diet and get spoiled by the Chocolate Brownie ice cream. We assure you, it’ll be worth it. With the same distinct style and the same taste, the food truck is bound to do well. In the future, more red coloured food trucks with the same hippie vibe could be seen running in other cities too.

George Bernard Shaw said,”There’s no sincerer love than the love of food” and when that food is prepared with utmost sincerity and love and is brought to a street near you, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be feasting on that. Now you know why, give it a try!

CELEBRATING INDIAN INDEPENDENCE DAY

posted in: Events | 0

Nothing qualifies as a better documentation of good times than a weekend spent in bliss.

With Independence Day around the corner, we urge you to mix pleasure with a pinch of patriotism.

Independence Day

One cannot think well, love well, sleep well or even celebrate well if one hasn’t dined well. Take a cue from that and walk into The Lalit Ashok Bangalore where a feast of epic proportions awaits you this weekend. Strap on the old feedbag as the masterchef whips up a host of delicacies, handpicked from all over India. Enjoy the live music and get buzzed with Indian pride as you go on a gourmet trip round the country.

A tryst with des-tea-ny more like your thing? For those wanting to indulge in a single act of patriotism, we first recommend a tryst at the Tea Lounge at The Lalit Great Eastern Kolkata. This pre-independence era property has hosted some of the greatest leaders of our freedom struggle, including the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi. Loose leaf teas sourced from the choicest tea gardens turn into sunset-hued cups of perfection. Add a side of creamy scones to the scene and relive an era of grandeur and quiet sophistication. Considering the eclectic bhadralok clientele of this place, don’t be surprised if you come back with an anecdote or two!

If a sweet staycation is on your mind, forget the crowded beachfronts and book yourself a languid seacation at The Lalit Golf Resort & Spa Goa. In addition to a refreshing landscape and more importantly, solitude, this luxurious property allows you an opportunity to brush up your punting skills at the sprawling golf course it is home to. And as you sip on sweet coconut water, while staring into the sea, you can take your pick of which Goan beach to spend the rest of the day on. All the luxuries and a little sand between our toes? Sign us up!

An equally enchanting experience can be found at The Lalit Resort & Spa Bekal. Located in the middle of the lush oasis that Kerala is, sunbathe, sail or sleep in – it’s so quaint and charming, you will forget it’s a total bargain. Thank you off-season!

If you are in the capital and unable to escape the traffic snarls (we do empathize) and parking woes, check into The Lalit New Delhi and watch The Tricolour unfurl gloriously, while being cocooned in the comfort of your room. An indulgent stay at The Lalit Legacy Suite comes with round the clock butler service and access to Rejuve – The Spa in case you crave a deep tissue massage.

This Independence Day, the freedom to choose luxury is in your hand. Visit www.thelalit.com and pick your destination.

The Serene South

posted in: Events | 0

KettuvallamSo, here I am at last.

Sultry, scintillating, spiritual, serene south India! I found this hidden gem of a place in Kerala; and on the drive to the hotel – The Lalit Resort & Spa Bekal (in case you’re curious), I realized what a different world it was!

India is a bit of a split personality, I feel. North India has its distinct culture, Mughal monuments and relics of the British Raj. The Dravidian south, on the other hand, is where the colonial powers had only a passing influence. People have darker complexions and speak the lilting, rhythmic languages of the south. Signboards use curling Tamil, Malayalam or Telugu script in place of the neat linear Sanskrit or Devnagari. In the cuisine, a variety of vegetables displace meat, and coconut milk and tamarind creep in as essential cooking ingredients; they even have a separate genre of music!

Southern India covers a rich geographic region that includes the entire Indian Peninsula. It consists of the four Indian states – Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu, in addition to the union territories of Lakshadweep, Pondicherry and the Andaman & Nicobar Islands.

Right from the iconic Charminar of Hyderabad, the imposing palaces of Mysore to the pristine Beaches of Kerala, and lush plantations of tea and coffee of Conoor – I was spoilt for choice! Ever floated on a cloud before? Spend a few days on a houseboat on the idyllic backwaters, and you’ll know what I mean. The Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary is an ornithologist’s paradise; and the confluence of the three seas at Kanya Kumari is a sight to behold! As if that wasn’t enough, nature to history, there are the impressively carved ancient South Indian Temples that dot every kilometer; not mention the ruins of Hampi.

If you do plan to visit, be prepared. Here even time stops for a breather! I think I will too… till Christmas! Ciao
