One of the unforeseen casualties of Covid-19 has been India’s prolific street-food scene. The act of communal eating while rubbing shoulders with your fellow diners and the people preparing your food is all but a memory thanks to social distancing and new safety norms.
Streets lined with kebab stalls that jostle for your attention with elemental displays of smoke and fire can be found across the length and breadth of India. The aroma of food being cooked over glowing embers seems to awaken a primal hunger that has remained unchanged since the discovery of fire itself. And oh, the variety. There’s a kebab out there for every letter of the alphabet in India. Achari, Banjara, Chapli, Dori...the list goes on. Cities such as Delhi, Lucknow, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Kolhapur, Amritsar and Srinagar have made a name for themselves as culinary epicentres of all things kebab. People have been known to travel to these cities just to eat their kebabs, undertaking kebab trails to the most obscure, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, seeking the perfect seekh or tracking down the tastiest tikka. Now that travelling for street food is off everyone's plate and you’re concerned with restaurant and hotel safety, how then do you satisfy your craving for kebabs and travel simultaneously?
Simple, if you cannot go to the kebabs, let the kebabs come to you, or your table at Club Mahindra’s Barbeque Bay. These restaurants spread across Club Mahindra resorts in India have been redesigned as per social distancing norms and adhering to the most stringent standards of resort safety. That means you can enjoy sizzling seekh kebabs, hot off the grill without worrying about hygiene and food safety.
Grilling is an art and the chefs at Barbeque Bay, artists. Imagine sitting at Barbeque Bay, Club Mahindra Coorg and taking a culinary tour of Lucknow with succulent shammi kebabs, tender galouti kebabs and smoky boti kebabs, all followed with fragrant Lucknowi biryani. Or how about a taste of Amritsar’s namesake fried fish and slightly charred, but still juicy chicken tikkas while you relax by the riverside at Barbeque Bay, Club Mahindra Corbett. You can also indulge in the finest kebabs Hyderabad has to offer such as its smoky seekh kebabs and lacy roomali rotis at Barbeque Bay, Club Mahindra Emerald Palms, Goa.
Well versed with the secrets to the most succulent of shammi kebabs, the tenderest of paneer tikkas and the tastiest of tandooris, the chefs at Barbeque Bay would like to share their knowledge with you. That is why the last step in finishing your tikkas and kebabs, ensuring that each bite receives a smokey touch from the coals, happens at your own tabletop grill. This means that every morsel is as juicy, smokey and tasty as they come, which is also the hallmark of the best street-side kebabs and tikkas. You no longer need to visit famous kebab gallis for your fix of grilled goodness.
With Barbeque Bay restaurants at five Club Mahindra resorts namely Club Mahindra Kandaghat, Himachal Pradesh, Club Mahindra Madikeri, Coorg, Karnataka, Club Mahindra Emerald Palms, Goa, Club Mahindra Corbett, Uttarakhand, Club Mahindra Munnar, Kerala, your kebab trail or street food crawl is just a few steps away, wherever you are.
The ambience too is fun and welcoming with the same heady aroma of the grill as your favourite kebab stall. While kebabs and tikkas might be the headline acts, supporting performances by a bevy of biryanis, gang of gravies and a range of rotis fresh from the tandoor will leave you smacking your lips in delight. The hardest thing to do here is save room for dessert, which at Barbeque Bay is a fitting final act to a spectacular meal. The cooling kulfi will douse the flames of spice and smoke while the decadent chocolate creations by the chefs are an edible encore to the richness of earlier eats
Barbeque Bay believes that great food is geographically agnostic and you can enjoy the tastes and textures of great kebabs no matter where you are. Enjoy piping hot kebabs amidst the chilly hills at Club Mahindra Kandaghat, Himachal Pradesh or the misty mountains of Club Mahindra Madikeri, Coorg. Have a beachside barbecue extravaganza at Barbeque Bay in Club Mahindra Emerald Palms or snack on some smokey kebabs by the tea plantations at Club Mahindra Munnar, Kerala. And best of all, feast amidst flowing rivers and wild beasts at Barbeque Bay, Club Mahindra Corbett, Uttarakhand.
