India’s tribute to Vietnamese food spells out the name, Blue Ginger, an in-house specialty restaurant of the Taj West End hotel, in Bangalore. Vietnamese cuisine has so much in it that is quite unknown to most of the world but Blue Ginger packs it all into your plates when you visit and take a look at the menu here and eat one of the most satisfying meals of your life!
Each Vietnamese dish is unique in its flavour and ingredients and reflects one or more of its ingredients. The tastes are quite delicate and quite different from the usual Thai and Chinese flavours that Indians are mostly used to. However, this cuisine will never cease to surprise you with is delights and Blue Ginger is the perfect place to begin without having set your foot onto the Vietnamese soil. For those who have been to Hanoi, Ho Chi Min, or have toured across Ha Long Bay, Cu Chi tunnels, Hoan Kiem Lake, Nha Trang, Mekong River and other such delightful places, you must have tasted some of their casual food like Fo Ga and Fo Bo or have snacked with a Bahn Mi! Well, Blue Ginger has maestros of this culinary discipline, reproducing the delicacies of this historical country in the heart of Bangalore for you. The whole place is a posh version of a sub-urban Vietnamese village, completed with exclusive mood lighting, colour and life, complimenting the celebration that your presence brings to Blue Ginger’s threshold!
The restaurant is set next to a hyacinth pool, natural stone waterfall and South-East Asian gardens and flourishes under a tiled pavilion that lets you enjoy the setting full on with your meal. It is truly amazing to be able to enjoy Sangrias, Beers, signature cocktails or single malts from the Blue Bar and the unique spread of Vietnamese food, on a sultry afternoon or a breezy evening with your family and friends.
