Metro Plus: L’Angoor is High on Style and Seafood

May 19, 2011

L’Angoor located at Global Business Park in Gurgaon, packed among high-rise buildings, is an elegant and trendy place to eat out. The furniture, flooring and the wall finish using oak wood coupled with open kitchen add to the ambience.

The menu has an extensive offering with different lunch and dinner menus along with a wide range of fine wines belonging to the different parts of the world. What sets it apart from the rest of the pack is that the restaurant focuses on seafood, whereas chicken has been pushed to the back burner.

To begin with, chilled melon served in martini glass makes a fine duet of musk and watermelon. It is minimally seasoned so that the colours don’t change. From the appetizers section, spicy mozzarella samosas sprinkled with sweet chilly sauce seems to be a creative effort which scores on the taste front as well.

L’Angoor chicken with mustard infused Cabernet Sauvignon wine comes accompanied by a topping of Carlifornia grapes and is once more a visual delight. Another appetizer, scallops served on a bed of corn mush pomegranates, is innovatively served in serving spoons and is cooked to perfection. Finally , the seared prawns tempered with mustard seeds, curry leaves and coconut milk is crunchy, replete with flavours of coconut and mustard. However for vegetarians, herb yogurt marinated potato barrels stuffed with cottage cheese is a highly recommended appetiser.

Thyme flavoured green beans and basil potatoeson bed of tomato compote served with fired leaks is both nutritious and flavoursome. The rack of New Zealand lamb drizzled with rosemary scented au jus is well-cooked and tender.

The desserts’ section at the restaurant is also lavish, with choices like kaffir lime ice cream served in an orange, affogato – a brownie topped with a vanilla scoop served with coffee syrup – and mango Mascarpone, comprising diced mango served in Italian cheese.
