Hey Delhites..how many of you have been to Pitampura?

I for one had never even heard of it until two nights ago when honestly….what I saw there knocked my socks off.

Malls that are more modern than anything in South Delhi (what I’m used too) and gargantuan eateries that were packed with people at all odd hours of the night.

We were hosted at the restaurant at Pacific Asia, which is a huge banquet/ marriage hall complex. We dined with good friends and the family of Pacific Asia’s owners and so as you can imagine…all the stops were pulled out. The restaurant is a multi-cuisine one (which is very popular in India). It served Indian, Chinese and Continental fare.

All I could do to survive the evening was to take a back seat at the great big Indian dining table – camera in hand, unbuckle my belt and prepare myself for the barrage of yummy foods that I enjoyed to the hilt.


Here is some of what we ate:


PRE-APPETIZER SNACKS

These are very popular Indian bar snacks .


MASALA PEANUTS

This is one of my favorite spicy Indian snacks. These boiled or roasted peanuts are mixed with finely chopped onions, cilantro, green chilies and spices and flavored with lime. It was delicious.


MASALA PAPAD

This snack basically uses the same ingredients as the masala peanuts but is served on crisp Indian pappadums.


INDIAN CHINESE APPETIZERS

Indian-Chinese is a very specific cuisine. It’s of course extremely unhealthy as it is mostly deep fried and heavily spiced but in my books -nothing beats a good Indian-Chinese meal. I enjoyed the Indian-Chinese appetizers here the most. They were really good. The ones that stood out were the Chili Fish, the Chili Lotus in Chili Plum Sauce.


CRISPY CORN PEPPER SALT

CRUNCHY FRIED LOTUS IN CHILI PLUM SAUCE

CHILI FISH

CLASSICAL CHILI CHICKEN

HOT AND SOUR SOUP

GOLDEN FRIED FISH

INDIAN APPETIZERS

I wasn’t as impressed with the non veg Indian appetizers. I found the kababs were good in parts but lacked the kind of succulence one might expect. The vegetarian appetizers were very good.

HARIYALI PANEER TIKKA

VEG SHEEKH KABAB

MUTTON SEEKH KABAB

CHICKEN TIKKAS

MUTTON BOTI KABAB


MAIN COURSE

We ordered Indian food for the main course. I thought everything I tried was good. The dishes that were really outstanding were the Kadhai Paneer and Murgh Makanwala.


KADAI PANEER

PEELI DAL TADKA

MURG MAKHANWALA

DAL MAKHANI

MUTTON ROGANJOSH

ROTIS/ NAANS/ KULCHAS (INDIAN BREADS) & RICE

GARLIC BUTTER NAAN

VEG BIRYANI

CHILI NAAN

Their breads were excellent. The one that was really outstanding was their garlic butter naan. It was dripping and oozing with butter but it tasted oh so good!


DESSERT

GULAB JAMUN

KESARI RASMALAI WITH PISTACHIO ICE CREAM

MY RATINGS FOR THIS MEAL
