Influencer event at Tapasya Hull // 13.03.18

I was recently invited to an influencer evening at Tapasya in Hull to try out their new a la carte menu as they have recently hired a new chef, Gajendera Singh. If you haven’t heard about the restaurant Tapasya, they provide a fine dining experience, different to any other restaurant around the area, offering innovative Indian foods using only local produce. All of their own spices are dried and ground in house; their attention to detail in every part of the experience ensures you genuinely won’t forget about their food!

I have always wanted to try out their menu ever since I modelled at a photoshoot at their Marina restaurant. I loved the high end, sophisticated interior design, I felt it really added to the fine dining feel that I enjoy.

On arrival, I was greeted with a glass of champagne and led into the private dining room, a glass room sectioned off, overlooking the restaurant. I felt this touch really made it a special experience. The table was beautifully laid out and we were greeted by their waitress and provided with menus.

After looking at their menus, I decided to opt for the Murgi Nazakat for starter and the Chicken Chettinad for main. Their menu describes my starter as “Charcoal grilled chicken breast three ways, mint and basil, poppy seed and Kashmiri chilli and cracked black pepper and dill. Served with mint chutney.” I’m not too big on my spices but this dish was perfect. I was genuinely surprised as how moist and tasteful the chicken was, dry chicken is very unpleasant. I feel this dish is perfect for those who aren’t overly adventurous and don’t really know what to go for. Unbelievably tasty. 

The chicken Chettinad was describe as “Southern Indian spiced chicken curry with coconut milk.” I absolutely loved this dish! Creamy, traditional, spiced chicken coconut curry, let’s be honest you can’t go wrong with this dish. Especially when the spices are ground in house and all the produce is locally sourced! To accompany our mains, we had Dal-Tadka (yellow lentils), Saag Aloo (baby potatoes in a spinach puree) and Saag Makai (Creamed spinach with baby-corn, tempered with garlic). The curry and sides were so more-ish, I couldn’t stop eating! From the desert menu, I picked mango ice-cream which is made in house. It was so delicious and creamy but at the same time very refreshing after having a curry.

I absolutely love interior design and I can’t stress enough Tapasya have really nailed their interior design. The chandeliers, glass dining room, wine racks and flower display really enhanced its luxury atmosphere, showing us why it stands out compared to other Indian restaurants. If I was to own this restaurant, I honestly wouldn’t change a thing.

I give massive credit to the new chef (Gajendera Singh) because his food was remarkable and thank the owners of Tapasya and VIP Worldwide for hosting me at their influencer evening giving me the unforgettable experience of dining at Tapasya.
