HYATT-SPICE MARKET -Review

SPICE MARKET:

    An all-day dining restaurant serving buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner along with a' la carte selections, Spice Market exemplifies a high-energy "live cooking' environment.
The restaurant serves Indian street food mixed with European bistro-style fare. It offers indoor and al fresco seating options overlooking scenic city vistas.

Spread across five live kitchens to justify the extensive reach Indian gastronomy covers, Spice Market encompasses the Tandoor Kitchen (Kebabs, grills, Indian breads), Stove Kitchen (Gravy based recipes, Indian rice delicacies etc.), Chaat Kitchen, Beverage Island and the Dessert Island (hot and cold desserts). Distinctively Indian, the food here promises to capture the flavour and aroma befitting the traditional Indian kitchens spread across the country. Spice Market pays homage to the legendary Indian home and street food.


DECOR:




Spice Market has a vast area and has an open spacious ambiance to it. The décor is charming with sacks of spices sitting on counters, giant wooden whisks and coconut shell ladles. It’s overlooking a lush terrace garden and has a light, airy spacious feel to it.







The ethnic life sized sculptures, reflecting Chennai’s are very kitsch with Jars, jute sacks and pestle and mortars, stainless steel tiffin carriers and so many things from Madras’s everyday life. There are ammis, attulals and even hand painted aruvammaanais, sitting on unpolished granite and wooden counters. The food has infinite variety, the salad bar is just perfect,

It is a perfect mix of the old madras life with the modern and luxury touch to it!
 

The entrance has these huge life size sculptures, then you walk past the chat corner at the entrance down towards the starter sections, turn at the salad counters.Then comes the maincourse section ending the tour with the deser island.





Tucked away in a corner is the bar.The tables are well spread out to make walking around easier and the ambience is definetly family friendly. There is also tables out in the balcony that gives the splendid view of the busy city!.

Entrée :

                     
The Spice Market specializes in unpretentious, simple Indian food. The menu has been well chosen. I felt the chat could have been better(the taste of the road side chat walas cannot be whipped :)) . Stuffed Paneer was soft and mildly flavored .There was limited varieties for the vegetarians. The dessert station is overwhelming from Indian to Continental , the Creme brule, Tiramisu, Lemon Pie, Pecan Pie, Hazlenut Panacota, Strawberry Panacotta and the Lemon Cheesecake! The Sorbets were simply outstanding and do try them!
