Exploring the Grand Trunk Road
Hey Readers! Welcome back to Gastronomically Yours. We hope that you are doing good. Today we will talk about this fantastic casual dining restaurant we visited a week back called the G.T.Road, located bang in the center of Connaught Place in the middle of the city.
Let us first tell you a bit about the Grand Trunk road itself which lends its name to the restaurant.
The GT Road is a 2600 km long historical road dating back to colonial times that extends from Kabul (or Peshawar depending on perspective) to Chittagong. As you might guess, this enormous this enormous length travels along various regions that are home to an exciting variety of cuisines and specialties. This restaurant aims to bring some of those specialties from across the length and breadth of this great motorway on their plates while sitting in the comfort of a restaurant located in one of its principal nodes.
This was a brief history of The G. T. Road. Let us now share our experiences. The theme of this restaurant is enchanting to say the least, comprising visuals of ancient villages, trivia written as graffiti and a case full of antique crockery. The G.T Road has very spacious seating arrangements which include ground floor and 1st Floor. The staff is also very courteous and respectful.
Coming to the food, this place is a haven for buffet lovers as we have already mentioned. Our food journey began with a complimentary drink which was a refreshing raw mango cooler. This was followed by a flurry of barbecued meats and fish that we grilled ourselves on our tables. The grilled starters in the eatery comprise of both vegetarian and non vegetarian delicacies but we only had a room for the meat. The must try items from starters are Namkeen Gosht, Lahori Macchi Tikka, Daab Chingri & Tandoori Chicken. They were astoundingly juicy and delicious. Don’t miss their chaat section once you are done with the starters. Following that, you must try the Yakhni Shorba followed by the main course.
We at Gastronomically Yours recommend our readers to try Kachey Gosht Ki Biryani, Doi Maach (Fish cooked with curd to give a heavenly flavor), Kosha Murgir Mangsho (Chicken Curry) from the main course section.
Don’t worry we also did justice to the desserts. Although our stomachs were nearly full at this point but our taste buds could not resist those mouth watering and tempting desserts. They have 18 different varieties of desserts. Some of the must try ones are Sheer Khurma, Balushai, Phirni, Chukandar Halwa & Jalebi.
Coming to the price, their pricing is really reasonable compared to other restaurants and the price range is between Rs. 339 to Rs. 890 per head and these are exclusive of taxes.
Overall the food journey was stupendous, unique from other restaurants and not to forget a great opportunity for quality time spent on a weekend.
