Andaz Delhi Launches Soul Pantry!
Today, Andaz Delhi launched its latest restaurant – Soul Pantry, a unique destination specialising in nutritional flatbreads, healthy bowls, fruit & yoghurt-based beverages and an indigenous coffee programme. With a story rooted in the sustainable sourcing of native grains and seasonal local ingredients, the Soul Pantry experience will allow guests to indulge in flatbreads which are highly nutritional and paired with locally sourced toppings with a wide range of options like avocado, chickpeas, sumac, burrata etc. In addition to the sumptuous vegetarian and non-vegetarian offerings, Soul Pantry also serves a selection of Dessert Flatbreads to satiate those with a sweet tooth. The flatbreads are available in three sizes, and guests can choose their dough from healthy grains from across the country – Amaranth (Uttarakhand), Finger Millet or Ragi (Tamil Nadu), Buckwheat (Arunachal Pradesh), Barley (Ladakh), and gluten-free Rice.
Some of the highlights of the menu are the fresh burrata and arugula oil topping, avocado humus with crispy chickpea and fresh mint & sumac, pork belly & barbecue sauce, susegado with chorizo and belkot cheese, Mangalore prawn & curry leaves. The dessert flatbreads can be topped with banana, chocolate, baked yogurt & sweet apple.
The refreshing nutrition bowls offer soulful treasures infused with the goodness of fresh ingredients, locally sourced greens and forgotten Indian grains. The bowls are not just delicious, but also extremely healthy because of the indigenous ingredients which are suited to the Indian climate. The beverage menu offers nourishing yoghurt-based drinks with the goodness of kale, flax seed, jaggery, fox millet, chia seeds, ginger, yellow lentil and more. The fruit-based beverages feature healthy seasonal fruits paired with energizing ingredients and seasonal herbs. Unique Tea and Coffee programs have been created in collaboration with 3 Clive Road and Roasted Today Coffee respectively. Cold brews, signature blends and seasonal specials make up the menu. To complement the indigenous food and beverage experience, the packaging of the flatbread boxes is an immersive experience in itself. Each box carries stories of the space and comes with a seed tag that will help you grow your own kitchen garden. Soul Pantry will also have a curated retail offering where you can shop for plants, seed paper products, coffee hampers and gifts that will truly feed your soul.
Chef Kapil Chauhan, Sous Chef at Soul Pantry says – “Soul Pantry is a celebration of the abundance of nature. Our uniqueness lies in the nutrition-dense doughs and the indigenous ingredients we use for our toppings. This is perfectly complemented by the beverage offerings which have enabled us to create a destination that truly fuels our guests’ soul.”
