Sagar Ratna has revised their menu. Apart from typical south Indian fare, they have included North-Indian dishes along with some outlandish Dosas. We were amused to see dishes like hot garlic dosa, spring roll dosa and chocolate wrap dosa etc. But this is not just another culinary gimmick. It was indeed mouth watering.
Fresc Co, an Italian food restaurant at Janpath, CP had always been very inviting and famous because of its word of mouth publicity. Though its buffets are much discussed, we skipped this and went a la cart. While Fresc Cos’ soups, salads and main course were divine, dessert was just about alright. We’d highly recommend their lime grilled chicken salad.
Outside Paschim Bengal, one of the most recommended Bengali fine dine restaurants is Oh Calcutta. But this place couldn’t live up to our expectations. The Oh Calcutta Biriyani was hardly Calcutta. It was more like a typical Delhi Biriyani (like Nizams, DEEZ etc), loaded with spices and chilli. And that is something any Calcuttan would perhaps swear – Calcutta Biriyani has no mirchi.
Based in Rajouri Garden’s, J Block DDA market which is a cluster of non veg eateries, Bhangra kitchen totally stands out for its extra ordinary food. Seriously tasty and sinful, its a perfect place to chill out and binge with buddies on a weekend evening.
Chidambaram’s take basic simple South Indian food beyond Masala Dosa and Uttapam by adding items like a Soy Dosa etc. Not for fine dining but nice South Indian, easy on pocket food.
Fruto Freesh’s USP is low fat and healthy food. The restaurant is well lit, has simple decor, and exudes positive vibes. With the freshness quotient, they live up to their name.
If you want a neat experience of the Indian Chinese at a convenient location, China Fare, Khan Market is our recommendation. The food at China Fare is not just sumptuous; it is visually pleasing as well. Quite like their walls. The courteous staff, the unpretentious environment and reasonable prices make China Fare a restaurant to revisit frequently.
Elma’s Brasserie is a small place with great tea and dessert options. Newly open in Meher Chand Market they have plans to introduce some offbeat lunch/dinner options.
