A couple of weeks back I visited Grills and Muse – Alakesh Baruah’s newest brain child.
Situated right next to Flying Duck at Baner-Pashan Link Road, Grills and Muse is Alakesh’s take on North Indian cuisine.
We started off the meal with the Mirchi Malai Kabab. It tastes a lot like the popular Reshmi Kabab but the chopped green chili gives a beautiful light after-burn, leaving you salivating for more.
The Chicken Butter Wings Tandoori is a lovely take on the Tandoori chicken. Coated with a glossy butter glaze, the tandoori chicken takes on a beautiful buttery flavor, giving it an almost baked-goods flavor.
I also tried the Quail Biryani. While the biryani rice and and salan accompaniment is delicious, the quail it self was slightly overcooked (probably due to the dum process). I would love to try out their mutton biryani, which, going by the flavor of biryani and the next dish i am going to speak about, should be spectacular.
(PS: Just noticed that the Quail biryani is now off the menu – speaks volumes of how the restaurant evolves)
Lamb Shank – This is a “must have” dish at Grill and Muse. The meat was so beautifully cooked, that it fell off the bone as I tried to pick it up. Delicious thick dark brown gravy, chock full of garam masalas, this is what North Indian cooking is all about.
While it is a polar opposite of the cuisine served at Flying Duck, you see the same care, service and impeccable attention to detail that we have come to associate with Alakesh’s brands.
Looking forward to more from the GnM kitchens!
