Cheeky Tiki at Vivanta By Taj
Latitude at Vivanta by Taj, Whitefield presents a Caribbean Carnival
Summer has invaded us earlier than we thought and there is no better way to cool down than with Caribbean Tiki cocktails at Latitude. These are all rum based coolers with coconut and lime. “We have Mojitos, Pina Coladas and Margaritas: all tropical cocktails,“ Ujjawal Bhimwal, Manager, F&B at Latitude told Explocity.
The menu is extensive and unique. “There are a lot of green bananas, sweet potatoes and coconut,” says Chef Satya Narayan. “I guess you could say it is similar to our Kerala cuisine. But also their jerk spices really set it apart.” Jerk spices are a unique blend of spices from the Caribbean made with special Scotch Bonnet chilies.
Some of the specials in the dishes are Caribbean Jerk BBQ with a selection of popular vegetarian and non-vegetarian delights. Also included will be the Jamaican Rum Cake for that sweet something.
“We cater to a very young and chic crowd and wanted to offer them a new experience. This is not a cuisine you can find easily in Bangalore,” says Bhimwal. Even the music will be reflective of the spirit of the occasion. Perfect for a mini holiday within the city.
