|Food Truck at JW Marriott, Chandigarh|
|Crumbed fried sole, french fries, beer cheese dip|
There's a new dining space at JW Marriott, Chandigarh. The theme is alfresco and all foodie action happens aboard the recent entrant, the Food Truck parked adjacent to The Lounge.
The ambience is casual-chic and setting the tone is cutlery wrapped in denim napkin, artistic crockery, rattan and wood furniture. For the compact menu executive chef Naveen Handa and his team have picked a selection of all-time favourite comfort foods from Indian, Italian, Oriental and English cuisines, given a slight twist to taste, and upped the experience with customised serving ware.

|Tandoori soya chaap slider, |
French fries, house salad
There is a range of tandoori tikkas, stuffed kulchas, sliders, dimsums and pizzas from the wood fired oven. In keeping with a lounge atmosphere, on offer is an option of convenient meals in a bowl such as the Mongolian chicken and egg scallion or its vegetarian counterpart the mix vegetable dumpling in soya chili sauce, both served with fried rice. The classic fish n' chips typically wrapped in paper and accompanied with beer cheese dip comes in a small wooden barrel; forget plates and cutlery, you can relax and eat straight out of it.
|Anda, Boti-Keema-Kaleji, Aloo Kulcha, |
chitta makhan, tadka pyaz
A winning combination is boti-keema-kaleji topped with an egg and served alongside aloo kulcha, chitta makhan and tadka pyaz. Irresistible! The 'open palm' crusty shell is a culinary tribute to the city's Open Hand and has a choice of delectable fillings. Besides the set menu, the chef promises dish of the day and seasonal delights.
The fare is perfect for a pairing with mocktail, malt or microbrewery specials of your choice from The Lounge.
There is ample outdoor seating and for those who like it cooler a row of attractive air-conditioned cabanas are quite a draw.
