Pearl Barley Salad

It's a lazy evening and the light monsoon showers tempt you to treat yourself to some lipsmacking food. But for foodies who are on a strict diet, exploring new options would mean compromising on clean eating.

So, we suggest you drop by at Infinitea Tea Room and Kitchen, which has introduced Vegan and Keto menus. The carb-free, guilt-free menu, loaded with lean protein and good fat, offers options like Cauli Rice, Genovese Basil Pesto Butter, Green Papaya and Raw Mango Salad, Brocolli and Spinach soup and Green Herbed Chicken Steak.

Barley necessities
We paid them a visit on a weekend evening to check it out ourselves. We started with the Pearl Barley and Roasted Beets salad. A simple yet innovative mix of char-grilled beetroot, zucchini, fresh julienned spinach, pomegranate kernels, barley and grated tofu with a dressing of maple dijon vinaigrette, this was the perfect mix of different flavours and textures. The tanginess of the vinaigrette combined well with the sweetness of the beetroot. We highly recommend it for its freshness.

From the small plates section, we ordered the Falafel Platter and the Satays of Chicken. The Falafel Platter includes fresh wheat pita, a hearty portion of hummus topped with extra virgin olive oil, tahini sauce and tabbouleh. The chickpea fritters were crisp and the pita was fresh, but it is the hummus that left us mighty impressed. The smooth texture is something that’s hard to achieve, but Infinitea seems to have cracked it. The Satays of Chicken are marinated in a ginger, garlic and red chili paste and the peanut sauce it was served with was delicious. This warranted a second helping.

Dark temptations
For mains, we opted for one of their classic, the Blackened Fish, but served with Keto-friendly cauli rice. The grilled fillet of red snapper was rubbed with thyme and black pepper and served with steamed vegetables. While the fish was as delicious as expected, it was the cauli rice, made with grated and sauteed cauliflower, that we liked the best. Fluffy and light on the palate, this is highly recommended. For desserts, we tried the Belgian Dark Chocolate Crillon Cake on the suggestion of the proprietor, Gaurav Saria. This flourless cake, made with 70 per cent couverture Belgian dark chocolate and topped with orange rind was
pure indulgence.

With more options like these, Infinitea’s new inclusions pack in nutrition with taste, and also help those on a strict diet to cheat but without any guilt.
