Don’t miss the Red Tacos this Valentine’s Day if you happen to be in the vicinity of Sanchez UB City or their Indiranagar outlet. The Sanchez Red Taco is a hybrid of the taco and quesadilla.

The menu offers a choice of fillings: Ancho Braised Lamb taco has juicy parcels of slow braised lamb with an Ancho Chili Base; Morita Pulled Chicken is dipped in Adobo sauce; Chipotle Tossed Yellow Squash and Corn Kernels Taco to name a few. If desserts are a must, try their Churro Hearts - heart-shaped piped donuts sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and accompanied by a drizzle of chocolate sauce and berry coulis.

Located in UB City and Indiranagar, this trendy Asian restaurant has got Chef Vikas Seth to craft a pair of rose dumplings that are light and flavoursome. The rose-shaped, open dumplings come in vibrant shades of red and yellow. The Red Rose dumpling is a medley of vegetables - tofu, zucchini and water chestnut, garnished with pomegranate and encased in a delicate covering made from beetroot that lends its colour. The Yellow Rose dumpling is filled with spiced Cantonese Shaoxing chicken in a bright yellow open pouch coloured with pumpkin extracts and served with chilli soy.
