You might have heard about restaurants offering European, Mexican, Continental, North Indian or South Indian cuisines, but not Bihari cuisine. I was invited by a friend to this place and was amazed to see such a hidden gem nestled in Bihar House, Chanakyapuri. Usually restaurants located in Market places hog all the limelight and customer footfall, but this place is much better than tose run-of-the mill restaurant. It has a huge hall with seating arrangement for 75-80 persons. Their are two entries to this place. One from the Main gate of Bihar House, the other from the backyard which takes you through a lush green lawn and an open restaurant extension which gets even more beautiful and embellished with lights during evening hours.
We started with Mirch Masala Lemonade and Aap Pannato refresh myself and beat the heat before starting on the food.. Talking about food, we tried the Meat Pakora, Baggi Basket and Aloo Lalu Chop and Keema Ghoogni. Meat pakoda was prepared with minced mutton and chicken fried to a golden crisp and served with traditional Bihari Chtnies. Keema Aaloo Chop were minced meat and potato cutlets served with bun on tomato and coriander chutney. The Ghoogni was basically a mi x of keema, poha and black grams. Everything was fantastic.
For main course I ordered Khada masala chicken with assorted breads. The mutton was full of spicy gravy and served with rice and boondi raita.My friend ordered Fish Chokha with marua Roti.
Having not much space left for dessert, I ordered Pineaple upside down cake.
