Venue: Regenta Central The Crystal
Time: 04:00 PM
This fine dine restaurant, Regenta Central The Crystal, has an amazing ambience with a royal-looking interior. Locating at the Benjhaver road in Harsh Nagar, Kanpur – the Regenta Central serves with best of their sumptuous food as well as the hospitality. We had landed up to this place on Sunday for a Luncheon. It gave us a perfectly wonderful experience. We would recommend anyone to visit this place for their lunch date with their crazy teetotaler partner.
Here, we savoured 4 items – Virgin Sangria, Pesto Harissa Mushroom, Penne /Macaroni Alfredo with White Cheese Sauce and Awadhi Murgh Biryani.
MOCKTAIL – VIRGIN SANGRIA
My favorite part about Sangria, the spanish punch, has not to be the wine or spirits; it has to be the flamboyant assortment of fruits that gets scooped into each glass. It is just so refreshing to sip and munch on a sunny day. I developed this non-alcoholic version with my teetotaler partner, and realized that I love this as much as the real thing.
This mocktail has to be a combination of black tea and pomegranate juice, which makes an approximate balance with the sweetness, acidity and tannins of red wine. It is a beautiful substitute to red wine in both the ways – flavour and colour. However, caffeine no doubt has got a more stimulating effect than wine.
In this mocktail by Regenta, I could also figure out a little tang of the fresh orange juice together with a subtle spiced-up flavor of cinnamon.
Lightly carbonated before serving, the drink was a punch apt for young as well the old, drinkers or non-drinkers, mealtimes or the parties.

PRIMI PIATTI – PENNE / MACARONI ALFREDO WITH WHITE CHEESE SAUCE
If there’s one thing in the World that I love and needs a mention – it has to be the creamy, cheesy Penne / Macaroni Alfredo with White Cheese Sauce. And this, when baked with perfection gets you a brownie point. Five stars to the Regenta Central for this delectable Primi Piatti.
Price: INR 525

AWADHI MURGH BIRYANI
This chicken biryani must have been prepared closely guarded awadhi spices; delectable it was. Regenta has their Awadhi Murgh Biryani in subtle flavors. And so, if you prefer a biryani blessed with real strong flavors and aroma, this has not to be your choice.
The biryani here is served with the burani raita – an ideal companion to savour your biryani.
Price: INR 750
