With many new cafés sprouting in Connaught Place, New Delhi, Dalal Street enters the market as a concept café. The concept is that of a stock exchange where instead of shares one has to keep a tab on the prices of the cocktails and mocktails. Every table has a screen installed that indicates the price of drinks which increases or decreases depending on its demand. The best part of this stock exchange bar is that when the market crashes, you get to try single malts and some of the finest cocktails at throw away prices!
While enjoying our drinks at Dalal Street, here is what we gorged on at this multi cuisine café. In vegetarian we recommend you to try Jalapeno Poppers (Rs.195), Mushroom Cheese Poppers (Rs. 165) and the Exotic Veggie Pizza (Rs. 395).
Both the poppers were crispy and without cheese over powering the flavor of jalapeno and mushroom, the appetizers had set a very high standard for the food that was to follow. The pizza was thin crust and delish!
In non-vegetarian we tried Butter Chicken Gol-gappe (Rs.195), yes we filled the crispy gol-gappe with chicken and poured butter chicken gravy inside and treated our stomach to a heavenly treat like never before. Next on the plate was the super soft Chicken Malai Tikka (Rs. 275) which was topped with cheese and mint sauce on the side.
Everything on our plate was palatable and it was hard to waste anything! We even tried the Mutton Galouti (Rs. 325) which were served with mini ulta tawa ka parantha and Chicken Pan-Fried Dumplings (Rs. 275).
From the main course, we decided to opt for Thai cuisine and sampled vegetarian Khao Suey (Rs. 375) and vegetarian Green Thai Curry (Rs. 375) which without a doubt were flavorsome.
We decided to end this treat with Churros (Rs.165) which were served with dark chocolate sauce and double loaded chocolate fudge brownie (RS. 195). You should definitely give churros a miss and dig in to the chocolate fudge brownie.
