cuisines have always welcomed the best of varieties and multiple hues of tastes.
If North boasts of the flavours of Dal Makhani and Paneer tikka, we have the
entire South offering exquisite delicacies like Chicken Chettinad and Dosa,
Vada or Idlis. But it is often a misconception that Southern India is only
restricted to the aforementioned delicacies and Peninsular Kitchen is all set
to prove it. Situated in Vasant Kunj Ambience Mall, this joint is truly a foodie
experience of the Peninsular flavours. Our foodie journey will surely make you
believe that to the core.
to Peninsular India right here in Delhi
you are wondering Peninsular Kitchen is a similar representation of only Dosai
and Idlis, it’s time to shake your notions. It is indeed an authentic platter
of dishes covering the entire Peninsular. Beginning from the ambience that has
paintings and arte-facts with the Peninsular flavours, you also have the
extraordinary names of dishes and the variety of delicacies to offer you the
best shot of Peninsular tastes. By claiming itself to be a Peninsular themed
restaurant, it truly welcomes delicacies from the states of Goa, Kerala, Tamil
Nadu and Andhra.
Mocktails that Sweep Your
foodie journey started with some sizzling mock tails devised with the Punch of
some super delicious Southern flavours. Our mock tail appetites were taken good
care of by ‘The Coconut Mojito ‘and the’ Aam Panna Lassi’, both loyally
imparting the superb polished aromas of the Peninsular lands. The later though
was simple in presentation and ingredients, but it was enriched with the
goodness of authentic in house Aam Panna with yoghurt and rock salt.
Mojito deserves an exclusive explanation since we loved it to the core. With
fresh mint leaves, coconut syrup as well as some chunks of lime this mocktail
redefines the flavours of the coast.
Peninsular Starters and
Main Courses to Satiate the Foodie’s Heart
Kitchen has to its treasure trove the best of appetizers to make you a true foodie
and fall in love with the food. We
started our experience with the “Tala Hua Gosht”, a pure Hyderabadi dish,
oozing out with the authentic spices of Hyderabad from every bite. The mutton
was soft and well-cooked making us fall in love with the peninsular chefs again
our Mangalorean appetites we found a starter companion in the menu, the
Mangalorean Squids Fry. This was a spicy version of squids with some mix of
mustard seeds, chillies with a tangy twist through some lemon juice.
coming to the main course, the list is long and indeed every dish deserves a
separate token of appreciation. However to name a few, we had the Jhinge Ka
Korma, an awesome delicacy from the Chef’s kitchen, a spicy gravy based on
Prawns and some soft and mouth-melting Neer Dosais. One should also try The
Kodi Pulao, a savoury Andhra themed Pulao or the Tahari , a minced mutton Pulao
with a zingy taste. Our
meal concluded with the super pampering Bibinca, a true Goan dessert.
