Tangerine is primarily a Steak speciality restaurant and it has been a very popular one at that too.It is one of our favorite jaunts since hubby is a hardcore non-veg who loves indulging in steaks every once in a while.I have not had very good experiences when it comes to sizzlers since vegetarian sizzler is a rare special and most of the times we get served some sauteed vegetables with mash potatoes and a big cutlet with some gravy.
I am glad to say Tangerine has been a wonderful experience for even a vegetarian like me.
My vegetarian friend ordered Mixed Vegetable New Orleans and it looked yummy indeed.Mixed vegetables in a cajun spiced tomato gravy served on a bed of herbed rice with sauteed vegetables and jacket potatoes on the side.She felt the quantity was a bit more for a single person,but hey what are friends for;)
I ordered a Vegetarian Mixed Grill and got the best of their 3 sizzlers in one plate.
It had a Vegetable shashlik which had potatoes,onions,carrots,mushrooms and tomato marinated in a yogurt based sauce,grilled to perfection and slathered with a curry sauce.The only complaint I have about the dish is the size of the vegetables.The potatoes and onions were halved and were quite a big size.Flavourwise though,absolutely no complaints.
My favorite was the cottage cheese steak.For a Paneer lover like me it cannot get any better.Two thin slices of cottage cheese stuffed with mushrooms and grilled,accompanied by a creamy herb and cheese paprika sauce-YUM!
The mixed vegetable steak was also delicious.A mash of mixed vegetables grilled and served with a creamy spicy sauce.
To say I am addicted to Tangerine Sizzlers would be putting it mildly.I've had their Walnut Brownie with Vanilla Ice-cream and Vanilla Ice-cream with Chocolate sauce and Praline earlier,but this time was too full to even think dessert.
A meal for two with Starters,Drinks,two Sizzlers (Veg and Non-Veg) and Dessert would cost anywhere between 1200-1500 rs depending on your orders.
