|Republic of Noodles-tranquil environs|
Republic of Noodles welcomes food lovers to a dining experience like none other - one that promises you an unforgettable journey through a world of flavours from Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Burma.
First launched in 2009 in Goa at The Lemon Tree, Amarante Beach Resort, Republic of Noodles (RON) has over the last four years, built an enviable reputation as one of the most authentic pan-Asian culinary experiences on offer in India. I had sampled the original at Goa a few years back, when we had reserved our last dinner of that holiday at the beautiful Amarante at RON. It had been a spectacular end to a great holiday. I am not a big noodle(read carbs) fan but the tastes and flavours there were unique and scintillating. Frankly it was the first time I got so excited with noodles in my culinary journey! The most authentic curries from the pan-Asian region add tot he allure of RON. The brand has expanded since.
Today, there are eight RON outlets located across the Lemon Tree properties at Goa, Jaipur, Bengaluru (2), Hyderabad, Aurangabad and now Delhi.
Republic of Noodles at Delhi has an understated elegance, accentuated by its traditional and contemporary Indonesian and Thai artifacts, that blends the modern with the traditional. Located in the alfresco area, overlooking the poolside, Republic of Noodles welcomes you with its deep orange and wooden brown hues exuding the earthy spirit of South East Asia. The parquet flooring together with the white walls and the bamboo flora compliment the theme of the restaurant. The subtle lighting infuses the interiors with warmth that is both welcoming and sophisticated.
The menu boasts of the most interesting selections of South East Asian cuisine. It innovatively blends the many flavors and textures of this region. Beautifully presented dishes, made from the highest quality ingredients and accompanied by our signature hot sauces promise to set your taste buds on fire. Be sure to cool off with our extensive selection of spirits and wines and make it the perfect evening out.
The restaurant serves traditional noodles -Indonesian Bamee Goreng with Vegetables and Kecap Manis, Bangkok Style Phad Thai Noodles with Wok Seared Prawns and many more, stir-fries that include Bamboo Shoots with Pickled Chilli, Minced Chicken with Chilli Garlic and Basil, Fish in Homemade Roasted Chilli Paste among others and clay pot curries from various regions including Jungle Curry of Chicken and Vegetables and Green Peppercorn, Pineapple Curry with Prawn and Lychees and the must try Yellow Curry Fish with Coconut and Tamarind, that are not typically found at other restaurants of the same genre. The signature hot sauces and accompaniments, made in-house, accentuate the flavors of each preparation.
The dessert selection at RON is as eclectic as its main spread and a meal here cannot be complete without trying its delectable desserts. For the sweet- tooth’s, the signature Water Chestnut Rubies and Longan in Coconut Milk is definitely a must have and my favourite.
Sweet Red Azuki Bean Pancakes or a choice of natural ice cream in flavors typical to the region like Tamarind, Wasabi, Kaffir Lime, Green Tea, Orange and Lemongrass is just as enticing.
