CHENNAI: Commemorating 10 years in the city, Café Mercara Express by ITC Grand Chola is presenting a special menu where patrons can go back in time and get a taste of the restaurant’s most celebrated dishes through the years.

Some of the city’s picks are- dal dhaniya shorba, chicken pepper and tomato soup, prawn cocktail, vegetable cutlets, fried fish and chips with home salad, kai kari biryani, Vellore mutton biryani, vegetable and chicken tetrazzini, shepherd’s pie, caramel custard, baked Alaska and lots more.

Their chicken pepper and tomato soup is of the right consistency. The thick soup is spiced with herbs and gentle spices; making the soup balanced. The subtle zing of pepper makes its appearance every now and then in just the right amount. The chicken is preparedwith its own unique seasoning contributing to the flavours of the soup.

The chilled prawn cocktail served in a cocktail glass appears to look like your average intoxicating beverage at first glance. The prawns are dipped in a saucy mix with cleverly coated flavours. The fried fish and chips served with tartar sauce are undoubtedly the menu’s best and hottest-selling dishes. The crunchy outer crumbs of the fish and moderately succulent fish are complemented by the tartar sauce and potato wedges. The dish which is not heavy on spices; in terms of piquancy manages to satisfy a palate known and frequented to spice. Chicken tetrazzini is their cheesy, saucy, spaghetti topped with chicken and parmesan cheese. This dish is a must-try.

The menu will be available till October 20 at Café Mercara Express, ITC Grand Chola.
