UE coach Pumaren expects Mbala to take on hot-shooting Pasaol

first_imgLATEST STORIES Mbala has been largely credited for neutralizing the league’s best scorers, including Paul Desiderio of University of the Philippines. But while Pasaol’s explosion has sparked UE’s turnaround in the past three weeks, the Warriors have been getting solid contributions from across the squad to stay in contention in the Final Four race.“Until there’s a fourth team that makes it, then we still have a shot,” said Pumaren. “We just have to stay positive with what’s going on. We just have to keep playing as one unit.”The Archers have won back-to-back games to start the second round—against Final Four contenders Adamson and Far Eastern U.With Mbala cooling off after a strong start to the season, Ricci Rivero and Santi Santillan stepped up to power the Archers past the Falcons, 80-74, over the weekend.ADVERTISEMENT Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?

In the mood for Megu: The Leela Palace Hotel, Chanakyapuri, New Delhi

first_imgMegu puts you in a happy space the moment you step in. The zen vibe is punctuated by thoughtful unobtrusive service and truly blessed food. Much of the detailing is lost by night, but now, with the restaurant opening its doors for lunch, your dining experience gets a facelift. There are a couple of reasons why the restaurant is worth visiting by day: the lunch menu has been crafted keeping both the busy business executive and the lazy lunch goer in mind. There are a number of new vegetarian options on the lunch menu which are frankly quite delicious; also, kids who enjoy sushi but are kept out of Megu by night can enjoy platter after platter over an extended family lunch; and you can enjoy a vivid green view by day which eludes you after dark. Enough reasons to tuck into the goodness of the new lunch menu we would say.In there for a quickie? The menu sports an efficient three-course lunch where you can pick from a selection of appetisers, entrees and desserts. While there are ample vegetarian appetiser options to choose from, the veg entrees are restricted but the chef is happy to accommodate anything special you might like created for your meal.Going a la carte? You must try the shira ae even if you are a die-hard non-vegetarian. The textural concoction redefines flavours that are clean and new. The sesame crunch breaks through the dip-like consistency and is a surprisingly good addition. The wasabi fried prawns with mango sauce is not an inventive dish but relies on recreating familiar tastes in a modern context. If sushi is your calling then Megu’s platters are a no brainer. There are many ways of doing sushi; while some places get the roll filling right others rely on the rice roll to create an impact. At Megu, the chef has got both right and the sushi is fresh, crunchy and wholesome. While many diners are intrigued by the fresh wasabi being grated in front of them, if you like a strong wasabi hit stay with the old version as it is a couple of degrees more pungent. A sorbet is served between courses and is the perfect palate cleanser. For mains, choose the crispy tofu with oroshi steak sauce (vegetarian) as it delivers on its promise of plenty; there are at least half a dozen vegetarian sushi options as well. The signature silver cod with yuzu miso is recommended for sea food fans as the gorgeous fish is lightly flavoured and is smooth on the tongue. The pork chops, cooked to perfection and cut into half-inch slivers retain much of the flavours they are cooked in and if the fish-prawn combine is getting too much, order this. None of the mains are overpowering in flavour and that perhaps is the beauty of the food plated up at Megu.The manager, Rajat Kalia, is a powerhouse of information and helps you pick dishes that work best for your palate if it is unfamiliar with Japanese cuisine. Pair your meal with a bottle of champagne and book a table close to the deck where just for an hour or two, you forget that you are in the heart of Delhi. The Megu lunch is many things but above all it caters to those who love simple flavours in a relaxed setting, far from the madness that is so Delhi.Meal for two: Rs 5000 (Without alcohol and taxes)Must try: Megu signature river stone grill (wagyu steak) flambed and served with daikon radish oroshi ponzu Shira AeReservations: +91 (11) 39331360Email: megu.newdelhi@theleela.comWhere: Megu, The Leela Palace Hotel, Chanakyapuri, New Delhiadvertisementlast_img read more
