We last held an event at Sentosa in December 2010 and it was extremely popular and memorable, so I thought it'd be good for us to do it again... a feast of delectable Indian cuisine from one of the finest and most respected fine dining restaurant groups in Singapore, Rang Mahal.
Rang Mahal Pavilion opened last year at the beautiful Hard Rock Hotel, Resorts World Sentosa. The dining mood and decor are inspired by the colorful celebrations of India using vivid colors and ethnic Indian instruments that embrace the Indian culture.
This stylish restaurant pays tribute to "A Celebration of Indian Cuisine" with its menu highlighting classical Indian favourites while belting out new trendy dishes that embody the new generation emerging within India. Rang Mahal's philosophy is to focus on the authenticity of the food as well as ensuring that it is cooked in a fresh and healthy manner.
This unique event will be held on Sunday 8th January, at 12 noon. After lunch, you may wish to explore Resorts World, or Sentosa in general - whether it's a ride on the Luge, or a visit to Underwater World or simply a stroll along Palawan Beach, there's plenty to do there!

Suitable for vegetarians and vegans!
As vegans reading this will appreciate, it's often hard finding an Indian restaurant that caters well for a vegan diet. Rang Mahal Pavilion excels here, and has put together a special vegetarian menu just for our event, including a selection of dishes that are also purely vegan, with no dairy or animal products used.
A brunch feast...
Here's the menu that has been put together for our event. Everything is vegetarian - the "v" indicates that an item is vegan. Apologies to those who do not take onion or garlic - the majority of dishes here contain both. A quick disclaimer: the menu below is correct as of today, but it's always possible that there may be one or two substitutions or changes.
Salads - Fresh Garden Greens (v) and Kachumber (v, an indian-style salad)
Pineapple & Water Chestnut Chaats (v)
Cucumber Raita (a yoghurt-based dip)
Soup of the Day
Broccoli Soup (v)
Palak Paneer (a curry made with spinach and Indian cottage cheese)
Peshawari Choley (v, a special preparation of chick peas)
Baingan Masala (v, smoked and delicately spiced eggplant)
Beans Poriyal (v, a popular South Indian dish)
Aloo Mutter Paneer Curry (a curry made with peas, potato and Indian cottage cheese)
Dal Tadkewali (v, a combination of yellow lentils tempered with garlic & cumin)

An assortment of Tandoori Roti (v, bread made in a traditional clay tandoor)

How much will it cost me?
Rang Mahal Pavilion usually charges over $40 nett for its lunch buffet - thanks to the manager, James Tan, and his team, we have been offered the following reduced (but fully inclusive of GST and service charge) rate for our event: $30 nett.
As you may notice, the rate for this event is higher than for other meetups that we've held. This is because Rang Mahal is more of a fine dining restaurant that uses the finest quality ingredients and has some expert chefs - many of them have worked in India's top hotels, and are highly skilled in creating delicious yet healthy Indian contemporary cuisine. I believe that the menu on offer represents excellent value for money - an opportunity to sample some great cuisine in a very special setting.
I look forward to seeing you on Sunday 8th January! Further information on convenient ways to reach the venue will be sent out nearer the time.
