Joy of India Menu Launch

I was recently invited to a menu launch at an Indian restaurant called Joy of India and boy was it joyful; the food, the company and the great service just made my night!

Before I get onto the food, I have to share something funny. My cultural background is Sri Lankan but people mostly assume I’m Indian and a lot of people think India and Sri Lanka have the same food (like the assumption made by Roxy on last weeks episode of First Dates!!!) but actually they are two different countries with different types of cuisines.
Anyway, now to the food…a group of us ordered a range of vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes to share along with garlic and cheese naan and steamed rice. I have to say ordering different dishes and sharing is the way to go at an Indian restaurant. For our entrée we shared a tasting platter of non-vegetarian delights, including tandoori chicken and fish and lamb koftas. The chicken and fish were so tender, they just melt in your mouth.  This was my favourite dish of the night by far. I have to say all the dishes were tasty as well as the drink of choice; Mango Lassi (a must have at any Indian restaurant).
If your unsure of what to order at an Indian restaurant, here is the list of dishes we ordered:
Garlic and cheese naan
Steamed rice
Mixed non veg platter
Butter chicken
Prawn jalfrezi
Dhal maharani
Vegetable korma
Palak paneer
Aloo gobhi muttar
Cucumber raita
So if you’re not salivating already here are some photos…..

Sushi Planet: New Menu Launch

Do you remember an earlier post from the launch of Sushi Planet in January? Well due to their success since opening they have expanded the menu to include a range of exciting new options including sushi for vegans!

The new menu launch was done in true Sushi Planet style, not only was the sushi flowing, the stylish guests were also in an abundance, and it was no secret that everyone enjoyed the delicious sushi.

What excited me was the range of different options and how pretty they looked, it was definitely a feast for the senses and it’s so nice that anyone with different dietary requirements has a choice and aren’t just left with one disappointing option.

My favourite thing on the menu are the chicken skewers……OMG they are so yummy. I love it when fancy food is actually tasty and the skewers at Sushi Planet are so tasty. They are smothered in finger licking, sticky, flavoursome sauce, I will go back anyday for these!

Here are some photos I took on the night, enjoy eating with your eyes and hopefully you get a chance to check it out yourself!
