An Epicurean Journey through India Menu at Punjab Grill

If given a choice to choose from, I would usually go for either the western, chinese, japanese, thai and korean cuisine while indian cuisine would probably be the last in my list. After a tasting session at Punjab Grill, I guess it’s not going to be the same anymore! Dining at Punjab Grill is like taking an epicurean journey through Indian’s richly diverse Northwest Frontier Province – the undivided Punjab region, where the source of inspiration for their menus come from. Love the overall ambience and decor and you may not notice that you’re actually dining in a Indian restaurant. Not to worry if you have a big group as there’s long tables available. Let’s move on to the food! We started off with the Smoked Tandoori Duck Shorba Laced with Burnt Garlic Oil. It’s really interesting to have soup in a Indian restaurant as I supposed it’s not common?
