Sushi Festival at Zen, Leela Palace : Sushi Galore

Zen , at the Leela Palace Bengaluru has been running Sushi Festival, as a part of their ” From the Land of the Rising Sun” Promotion.

A few of us food bloggers and enthusiasts were invited for a chef’s table to preview the promotional menu.

  Chef Boonlurah Panchai has put together an incredibly grand, specially crafted spread of 26 varieties of delectable items- that included sushi, sashimi, tempura rolls , salmon roe and with the quintessential Japanese ingredients and interesting use of truffles, avocado etc. All of this beautifully complemented with the traditional soy, pickled ginger, wasabi ( a little less pungent than normal) , spicy Japanese mayo and yuzu.

The centerpiece of the spread was the sashimi platter. Stunning to look at. Tuna, Salmon, Octopus, Hibachi and Scallops, although slightly thick in their cuts but, delicious.

The festival has been on for a couple of weeks now and it comes to an end today – 21st March.

Priced at INR 2500++, the festival offers great vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian options.

There is a glimpse of some of food from that afternoon:
