                      Tikkas and Curries

‘Tikkas and Curries’ is a multi cuisine eating and a takeaway joint. Located in Guru Nanak market, one can easily spot it by their signature bright and sunny yellow arched canopy. It is not known to many that this amazing eatery is run by former Oberoi chef, Sandeep Kakkar who believes that food is the celebration of life and the real success gained as a chef is when people appreciate the food with complacency and smiles on their faces.

                     Delhicious  Kitchen

                                                                                             By Tanya Kapoor

A small yet eye catching little restaurant, you will find Delhicious  Kitchen tucked  between CCD and MOD  in the bustling Lajpat nagar market, and I suggest the next time you walk past, do step in, it will be totally worth it.

The restaurant  looks  bright and funky with  lamps and little lights above you and interiors done in black and green.  For  seating, there are bright little stools placed near the wall and the floor is done up in wood, this makes delicious kitchen a cool place to hangout with friends.

This  restaurant is a one of its kind in the locality .  For a small café like this; Delhicious Kitchen has a vast menu that offers North Indian, European, Mexican, Lebanese and American dishes, and each cuisine has a wide range of dishes as well. So many cuisines, all under one roof, what else does a foodie want?!

I ordered the Chicken Shawarma,  hummus with pita bread and virgin mojito. Because the menu has around 150 dishes, I will need quite a few visits to taste if not all, but at least one fourth of them. Coming to the food I ordered –  the hummus was flavourful but  missed a little bit tahini, if a little more tahini could be added this would be the best hummus in delhi. As for the shwarma – a roll made of pita bread, having sour cream, lettuce and chicken with some veggies  is  a must try for everyone! The virgin mojito was perfect with right amount of sugar content and is one of the best virgin mojito’s I have had in delhi.

I was quite happy with the flavours, especially at a reasonable price (they offer the cold drinks at MRP, that’s adorably fair!). I do wish the portions were a little bigger though but then its okay, I got a chance to try more dishes.

The food served here  will leave your taste buds asking for more, without a big hole in your pocket. Don’t judge a restaurant by its size! That is what I would say about Delhicious kitchen.

While Lucky Bhaiyya is busy chopping onions and preparing chicken pieces in an erudite manner, his brother Amit gets the sauces and ingredients out on the stand for the evening proceedings. Located in National Park, Lajpat Nagar IV, the hub of happening college students,Yummy Snacks rules the tastebuds of many. People start pouring in the minute the counter opens at 5:00pm, keeping the brothers busy till 10:30. The customers visiting reaches a whopping 100, everyday. Not even a minute to spare, working meticulously, preparing a plethora of food items like Chicken/Egg/Noodle rolls, Tawa Kebabs, Keema-Chicken-Seekh and Salami burgers, Chicken salaami for non vegetarians and Paneer-Noodle Roll, Veg. momos and Tawa Soya Chap for vegetarians. With their amazing synchronization, they have been successful in pleasing their customers with their ambrosial and efficient service since six years. While one kneads the maida dough for rolls and cuts veggies for the filling, the other quickly takes the orders and deep fries the contents.

Egg rolled maida paratha which sizzles on the huge tawa, ready to embrace the orange coloured, juicy, soft chicken and caramelized onion, is basted with mayonnaise and fiery red chilly chutney. The sweet and spicy flavors of the chutney provided with all rolls and momos, meet your tongue with a bang. Expenditure on any food item is very light on the pocket. They do not provide any home delivery service, nevertheless, customers from both near and far off places horde around their small counter, ready to wait up till half an hour after placing the orders without any cribbing. A Chicken/Paneer roll and a full plate of momos along with other rolls and tawa items would cost somewhere around 50 bucks each, depending on the selection of the ingredients.

So, whenever one has had a hectic day, is sick of PG aunty’s unpleasant servings or is brooding over some life’s drama, this is a place where you can hang out with friends and feel much better without a doubt! ‘Cuz sometimes happiness lies in small and savory packages!
