For most of us, ‘good’ and ‘healthy’ food are poles apart. If it’s good, it can’t be healthy; and if it’s healthy, it cannot be good. Yet, Hena Nafis, a renowned nutritionist, along with her team of experts, has managed to prove that this theory is invalid today. The City of Joy recently welcomed Eat Good Food, a restaurant serving wholesome and palatable meals, on Tarak Dutta Road, and BlabberCat was there to check (and eat) it out! – Samreen Akhter
The menu has been carefully designed giving a detailed layout of the nutritional values of every dish that is prepared and served. It caters to the needs of diabetics, people suffering from blood pressure problems or looking out for a no-carbs diet and way more. It is a good way to encourage foodies to swing away from the unhealthy food joints and move to a better style of eating and help keep a sharp track of their calorie intake. The pocket pinch for a four-course meal for two is around INR 1100-1200. Great, healthy food, reasonable prices, good quantity and a peaceful ambience – what more could one possibly ask for?! In a world fighting obesity, Eat Good Food is like that tiny ray of hope that shows that we still have chances of eating wholesome food and enjoy every bit of it.
The Musk Melon drink was one of the most refreshing and cool drinks that could possibly be served during this heat. It is a drink that sure knows how to balance sugar and health. The Greek Salad that was served tasted way better than the normal inedible salads that are usually available, thanks to the feta cheese that provided the right level of tanginess along with the tomatoes. The rice noodle salad might take a while, but the taste will ultimately grow on you leaving you yearning for more.
At this stage, it would be unpardonable if we don’t mention the cheesy, scrumptious lasagna. How can lasagna be healthy you may ask? The best part is that the carbs loaded pasta sheets have been replaced zucchini layers. This modification takes the dish to a whole new level and the ultra low-fat cheese ensures that there are no pangs of guilt once you have hogged down the entire dish without the thought of sharing your food even entering your head. How would it, when your taste buds are busy having the time of their lives?!
The customers will be spoiled for choice when it comes to the main course. There is wide variety to choose from and it will be difficult for you to decide whether you’d like to have the grilled fish, chicken and prawns on one side of chicken roulade stuffed with minced chicken and mashed potatoes on the other.
