Michelin star Indian Chef Vikas Khanna
I was invited to High Tea at The Song of India restaurant with Michelin Star Indian Chef Vikas Khanna who is a restaurateur, food writer, filmmaker, humanitarian and the host of the TV Show Master Chef India.
Chef Vikas grew up in Amritsar, Punjab, India and is currently based in New York. He is the executive chef of Junoon Restaurant in New York City and was ranked in the top 50 of People’s Magazine Sexiest Man Alive 2011.

I fell in love with Chef Vikas' Paan Panna Cotta (betel leaf flavoured panna cotta). The flavor of betel leaf goes so well with the rich, creamy texture of panna cotta and the lovely minty taste lingers in the mouth. It's amazing that he would think of using the traditional paan (betel leaf chew) in panna cotta. That's brilliant!
Paan can be bought in nearly every local street in India. They are believed to help in digestion of curried foods and also act as mouth fresheners. I have seen kiosks selling it at our Little India but have not plucked up the courage to try it ..... yet.
After tasting Chef Vikas' betel leaf flavoured panna cotta, I think I am ready to try the betel leaf chew. :D
Situated in a prime location at the famed Scotts Road, The Song of India is located in a classic black and white heritage bungalow.
