THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Sharing good food with your friends and family is undoubtedly one of the best weekend plans. City connoisseurs can now sample a myriad of continental and fusion flavors at the brand new BLND Restobar on the NH66 Bypass near the Technopark. The quaint and spacious interiors provide a comfortable space for foodies to try a mix of continental specialties and local dishes.

The multi-cuisine restaurant at SFS Homebridge opened about a month ago. The Quilon Roast Beef on Crostini is one of their must-try fusion dishes that the place is now becoming famous for. The starter is homemade with chunks of roast beef on small slices of crostini. BLND also offers a wide variety of international cuisines like Vietnamese rice noodle rolls, a traditional dish of Vietnam. The resto-bar has a bar counter and a separate dining room. The counter offers a range of wines – rosé, sparkling, red and white. Cocktails and beers are also part of the menu.

BLND’s private dining spaces provide privacy for guests to wine, dine and socialize, says Byju S Nair, Food and Beverage Manager at SFS Homebridge. The menu has also been defined accordingly. “Among the starters, I would recommend the Tandoor mixed grill platter consisting of chicken tikka, fish tikka, lamb seekh kebab, salad and mint chutney. It is served on a wooden board and can be shared by three people. All unique salads, soups, entrees and desserts have been carefully selected by Executive Chef, Bitto Mathew. For our fitness-minded customers, we also offer a range of healthy salads, such as the Pyramid Farm which features tomatoes, corn, lettuce, peppers and cabbage with a drizzle of raspberry vinaigrette. You can customize it with chicken. Vegetarians can opt for exciting offerings like the ‘sundal on papad’, which is a mix of white and black bengal gram and tempered peanuts with shredded coconut carvings on a papad base,” he explains. he.

Rice and shine!
The main course has more non-vegetarian varieties served with rice and bread of the customer’s choice. For lovers of traditional spicy cuisine, chemeen mulagau thakkali served with steamed rice or kallappams will be a satisfying choice for lunch or dinner.

If you want to be continental, go for Quarter N More, which features grilled chicken breasts and thighs served with mashed potatoes and sautéed vegetables. The chef’s signature dish, quick-fried slices of beef with oyster sauce and black pepper served with yan chow fried rice, is sumptuous in every way.

Last but not least, BLND has also lined up a variety of desserts. Tiramisu and crème brûlée with candied ginger are among the European-inspired sweet treats. From the desi basket, the Mitai Bake – a fusion dessert where carrot halwa, gulab jamun and puff pastry are baked and topped with ghee and dried fruits – is the best seller.

Thirst Corner
BLND offers around eight signature mocktails. Standing out from the crowd, Purple Garden made with butterfly pea flower syrup, rosemary herb and sliced ​​lemon and cucumber is refreshing. Kvass, a probiotic drink from Russia, tastes great and also helps boost digestion. The passion fruit and lemongrass martini is another best seller at their bar.
