Trending at Pavilion was the Buzz word at all ITC hotels in India, this last Saturday!!
What better way to enjoy a beautiful Saturday afternoon, than tasting some good food?
Saturdays are my outing day because it is easier for me to manage everything. After a tiring outing, I can get some nice rest on Sunday (read, waking up late in the morning) and so it is with my daughter. Sunday evenings are usually the “early-to-bed” kinds because I have to wake up early in the morning on Monday to get my daughter ready to school.
So, I felt much better doing the outings on Saturday. I know a lot of people who think Sundays are better, and better it can be depending upon how your schedules are.
Just like every week, I was planning for our outing. That’s when this email popped up in my inbox. An invitation to a new menu launch at ITC Gardenia, Bangalore that was scheduled for Saturday. It was, in fact, a bloggers meet and I got all excited about it.
A beautiful Saturday – nice weather, the kind that Bangalore is known for. In fact, the weather was a little cooler than usual and the day felt perfect for an outing.

As I reached the hotel, it was almost time (as always blame it on the traffic). The hostess was waiting and she was a nice company, I should say. Very polite and friendly with a pleasing smile on her face.
There were 4 other bloggers in addition to me – a couple of lifestyle bloggers and another few food bloggers.
As the chit-chat continued, the menu was introduced. It was a nice combination of some local Indian food and some international cuisines. Since I was a vegetarian, I went for the vegetarian side of the menu and here it is –
- Molten Brie
- Butternut Squash & Carrot Puree
- Green Burger with Jarred Greens and Potato Wedges
- Tiffin Bento with Goli Bajji, Karampodi Idli and Maddur Vada
- Pumpkin Ricotta Gnocchi
- Milk Chocolate Parfait etc.
I am sure the non-vegetarian menu too, would have been a classic.
The food was simply awesome. An absolute feast to have, some of the items in the menu showed the real dedication in the kitchen. And with the Chefs by our side, we got a nice and detailed explanation of what some of the dishes were and how they were made.
And while we talk about the Chefs; a group of pleasant individuals, smiling personalities. Probably their approach added to the already tasty food that was served.
I am a fan of Burgers and that is probably why I felt I was a little too biased towards the Green Burger. It was indeed yummy.
But that shouldn’t take the credit away from the rest of the cuisines. The Pumpkin Ricotta was awesome and so was everything in the Tiffin, especially the Goli Bajji.
And to finish it off, we were served with Milk Chocolate Parfait, another absolute delight. Check out the Chef’s touch to it in the below video.
So if you are looking for some authentic taste and if you want to experience something more than food, then I would recommend you hop straight into one of the ITC restaurants and taste the new menu there.
