‘Twist of Taste’ at Shiro


Celebrity Chef Vikas Khanna brings
‘Twist of Taste’ to Shiro

Creative appetizing food for a limited period


Shiro is all set to provide a twist to their existent and much loved menus as they associate with the leading travel channel Fox Traveller for their upcoming show “Twist of Taste” hosted by the highly acclaimed Star Chef Vikas Khanna. Patrons can avail a menu specially created by Chef Vikas Khanna at Shiro all week starting January 20, 2014.

A favourite amidst food connoisseurs, Shiro presents the finest Oriental cuisine and fabulous cocktails, accompanied with Zen-inspired interiors, making a dining experience far more memorable.

Shiro is one restaurant in Bangalore where quality is consistent. Every time I visit here, I am pleased with the food, service and ambience. There are many restaurants in Bangalore which have all three elements but when it comes to consistency, Shiro takes it to all together to a different level. 

“Twist of Taste” menu includes Panko crusted prawn rawa fry style, Xacuti masala grilled rice paper roll chicken, Crispy tofu with tamarind chutney in paper basket, Coconut and lemon grass soup with rasam powder, Steam fish in lotus leaf with Malabar curry spice, Kerala style prawn curry with thai red curry paste and Lemon fried rice with peanut and pineapple. 

As the name suggests, every dish has a twist in its taste. I have always believed that when prawns are deep fried it loses its essence, until now. I was taken by surprise as Panko crusted prawn rawa fry style was simply delicious. The prawn though was deep fried, held its essence and taste. 

I have been staying in Bangalore for three years now but to be honest, I have always ignored rasam and when I read Coconut and lemon grass soup with rasam powder in the menu, thought of giving it a miss. But the foodie inside me couldn’t resist and within 2 minutes I had finished the soup. And my fellow foodie friends ordered another bowl of soup.

Xacuti masala grilled rice paper roll chicken, Crispy tofu with tamarind chutney in paper basket, Kerala style prawn curry with thai red curry paste, and Lemon fried rice with peanut and pineapple were equally innovative in taste.

But the dish of the day was Steam fish in lotus leaf with Malabar curry spice. I have always loved fried fish and tend to ignore steamed fish, reason being the smell of the fish is too strong and I hate eating it. Surprisingly, the steamed fish here had a very mild smell which added to the twist. Full marks to the chef to spice it up with Malabar curry and give it a fresh look altogether.

All the dishes are created by Chef Vikas’ coastal influences blended with Asian delicacies. This specially created menu is priced between Rs. 220 – 750/-. An assured treat for those looking to please their palates as two popular cuisines are brought together with finesse.
