In what can be an appetising bit of news for loyal Trident customers, the luxury business hotel has for the first time added the very popular ‘thali’ to its already extensive lunch menu. However, going by the standards of the hotel, the thali is different from the regular ones available in other hotels or restaurants.

The entire spread comes in a sparkingly white bone china plate with eight bone china bowls unlike the typical steel plate, with which thalis are generally associated. A welcome drink is offered before the thali arrives. Besides the rice, dal, a curd dish and dessert, the vegetarian thali has four different kinds of veg curry while the non-vegetarian has two veg and two non-veg items. Interestingly, these thalis have starters too, which are presented on a banana leaf placed on the centre of the plate. A basket that includes an assortment of breads including roti, lacchedar paratha, kulcha and nan also accompanies the thali.

‘’The idea behind introducing the thali is to target the office-goers and corporate people who crave for home-made food. We give a special touch to all our dishes. The best part is each dish on the thali is changed every day including the rice and lentil and even the welcome drink. Even the starters are different for both veg and non-veg thalis on different days of the week. A good thing for non-vegetarians to look out for is the fact that we not only keep changing the dishes but also offer a wide variety from fish, mutton and chicken to prawns and lamb,’’ says Executive Chef Suprakash Tripathy.

So, if you haven’t yet tasted it, go check out the all new thali at Trident Hilton. The vegetarian comes for ` 750 while the non-vegetarian costs ` 800.
