Hindi flavours are now top of the menu at Le Meridien Al Aqah Beach Resort, Fujairah. The hotel opened Swaad, an authentic Indian bar and restaurant, in January. Swaad is the first Indian restaurant to be launched at a Le Meridien property in the UAE. Situated on the ground level, Swaad, which means taste in Hindi, is the latest addition to the resort’s culinary offering. Keeping guest preferences in mind, the restaurant has carefully put together two special sets of menus, ‘Subz Bahar’ for vegetarians and ‘Swad Khazana’ for non vegetarians. “The amazing array of different cuisines on offer at our resort reflects the diversity of our guests. Swaad brings the best of Indian cuisine to the hotel. Our choice of restaurants at the resort have been based on recommendation from guests coupled with surveys aiming at providing our guests absolute comfort in all aspects,” says Patrick Antaki, general manager, Le Meridien Al Aqah Beach Resort. The restaurant will serve traditional Indian cuisine, including dishes such as Ghazab Ka Tikka (chicken with cream and green cardamon), Jhinga Birbali (tiger prawns marinated in hung yoghurt, chilli, mint, spinach and spices) and Dum Ka Seekh (Hyderabadi lamb kebab cooked on skewers). “We have created a selection of innovative gastronomic delights for our guests who appreciate the exotic flavour of Indian cuisine,” remarks restaurant chef, Bybee Chacko. “The restaurant is all set to tickle taste buds of visiting guests with a wide range of savouries from different regions in India. Some of the favourites include the signature Biryani, Zard Murg Biryani, and Carrot Halwa, which also are my personal favourites,” he adds.
