The classic combinations of kebabs, biryani and roll are for the ages and Orko’ss Restaurant & Lounge Bar, Salt Lake has pulled out all the stops with a month-long Kebab, Biryani and Roll festival, literally, fit for for everyone. Experience the tempting royal aroma of succulent freshly grilled Chicken Tikka Kebab, Mutton Seekh Kebab, Hariyali Fish Tikka, Chicken Malai Kebab, Basilica Paneer Tikka to go with your chosen biryanis. You can also choose from a range of beers or your favourite cocktails to match each of the Kebabs for an extraordinary culinary journey.
The Orko’ss Restaurant’s chef Sujan Paul points out while explaining the distinction between Lucknowi and Hyderabadi biryani, the north Indian Lucknowi biryani has nuts alongside key ingredients like kesar, cardamom, cinnamon and zafran, and is more generous with ghee, making it more aromatic, the south Indian Hyderabadi version has more spices — coriander, black peeper, fennel seeds, saunf, pudina, Guntoor chilli and a lot of mint. One of our favorite things about this festival is that the chefs at Orko’ss Restaurant & Lounge Bar are actually grilling up your kebabs to order at the open kitchen inside the restaurant. So, you can take a sneak peek at the variety of kebabs available and get your taste-buds drooling!
