Hot n Juicy Kebab Festival – 45 days, 22 Kebabs, are you ready?

At Paradise, we are always trying to offer something new to the guests by adding new items to the menu. Another way we have done this over the years, which gets us as excited as our guests, is through our food festivals. Earlier this year, we brought the Zafrani Biryani Festival to you. This month we bring to you the Kebab Festival featuring diverse varieties of Kebabs from across the length and breadth of the country.

Kebabs originated in Turkey and travelled across the Asian continent to come to India. Kebabs were a staple of Mughlai cuisine; when they came to Hyderabad, they got assimilated into the Hyderabadi cuisine, but not before getting a Hyderabadi twist. The chefs here used the aromatic spices peculiar to the region and transformed these Kebabs to suit the local palate and preferences. And now, when Paradise hosts guests hailing from all over the country, it is but natural that we offer diverse varieties of Kebabs from across the country.

The Hot n Juicy Kebab Festival gives our guests an unique annual opportunity to relish Kebabs that are not a part of our regular menu. On August 15, we are launching the third edition of the Kebab Festival. The festival will last for 45 days and will feature 22 different varieties including several delicious vegetarian, chicken, mutton and seafood Kebabs. For those who like to sample different varieties all at once, we have four unique Kebab platters. The previous two Kebab festivals were a resounding success thanks to your enthusiasm and love of Kebabs.

The great thing about eating Kebabs is that you can follow them up with anything at all. Once a meal starts with these delectable Kebabs, it becomes a great meal! Everyone loves a good Kebab and ours are always ‘lajawaab’. So don’t deprive yourself any longer, come visit us and bite into these hot and succulent steaks and celebrate the diversity that Indian food is all about. Visit any Paradise Dine-in Restaurant across Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Chennai from August 15 to celebrate the Kebab Festival with us.

A festival indeed!

murgh-kalmi-kebabHere comes the last week of the Hot N Juicy Kebab Festival. This year’s festival has been a huge success. Not only did we organise the Festival at more Paradise Outlets this year, but we also brought together the most diverse spread. Guests enjoyed the new varieties and we have seen many of them coming back to try out Kebabs selected expertly by our Chefs from across the Indian culinary landscape.

We want to recommend a few vegetarian and non-vegetarian Kebabs that should be on your order list during this week.

We have a few recommendations that can make your meal outing special and memorable.

First in line are our Kebabs. Tender, sizzling and delectable, our steaks are the snack of the season.

A happy Hyderabadi meal should also be spread over multiple courses and it should not be hurried through. Allow your senses to be pampered with creamy soups, scrumptious Kebabs, flavourful Curries and aromatic Biryani. Ending your meal with a delicious Dessert (say Qubani-ka-Meeta) fills you up with pleasure that’s beyond words. It is a meal that’s fit for a king in every sense.
