Dining at The Deltin, Daman

Being so used to writing about food, and enjoying sharing what’s on my plate I decided to do a separate blog post on my dining experience at The Deltin, Daman. Read on for a foodie journey across The Deltin’s three functional restaurants, and see what all we stuffed our mouths with.

Vegas Cafe: 

Aptly named and aptly situated at the hotel’s casino entrance, Vegas Cafe is a multi-cuisine restaurant. They serve a la carte and buffet meals, and are open 24 hours daily. We had two lunches and breakfast at our stay there.

In lieu of our arrival they had prepared an extensive set lunch menu for us. The food was average and nothing exceptional to write home about. Multi-cuisine restaurants fall into the ‘jack of all trades, master of none’ trap in my opinion. They try to do too much, and end up not excelling at any specific thing.

I enjoyed the succulent and Masaledar Gosht Seekh. The Chicken Hariyali Kabab had a moist chicken filling and went well with the green chutney. The Kandahari Paneer Tikka needed more seasoning. Garlic, Pepper & Butter Tossed Potatoes made for a decent snack which I would want to eat at a bar with my beer.

My Monsoon Getaway at The Deltin, Daman

Every once in a way we need a weekend away from the madness and chaos of the city. A weekend to relax, unwind, gorge on some delicious food along with some lovely company. My last weekend at The Deltin, Daman was filled with all those ingredients…and more. It was a weekend where a bunch of bloggers got to live out the Deltin experience courtesy the Food Bloggers Association of India (FBAI). Read on for a two part blog post on my amazing weekend: one covering the hotel and its amenities, and another doing justice to the food it offers.

After a 4.5 hour long drive from Mumbai to Daman we arrived at the sprawling property filled with lush green trees where the hotel is situated. It has 176 spacious rooms, three pools, and other amenities such as a gymnasium, spa, salon, and business center. It also boasts of two restaurants and one lounge, but more about that later. 

What makes The Deltin stand apart from other hotels is that it shall house India’s largest Casino staring October this year. Spread over 60,000 square feet the casino shall have 1,000 gaming positions, including 250 slot machines, and international games such as Roulette, BlackJack, Poker etc. (Source Courtesy: www.deltingroup.com). Unfortunately when we visited, the casino was being constructed and kept under wraps.

Mahabaleshwar Memoirs

Mahabaleshwar is called the Grand Canyon of India. And rightfully so. Vast expanses of greenery, deep mountainous terrain, dizzying heights, narrow roads and chilly weather! Perfect for a weekend getaway. And the amazing local food and produce makes it even more worthwhile for foodies like me to take a trip. So a bunch of us set off this weekend for a getaway. (Which explains the long hiatus from blogging).

The weekend was filled with food, food and only food. We lived between meals, planning the next meal while we ate our first. Out of all that we ate, here are my top three most memorable.
