One of the most loved place and my personal favourite in Hauz Khas. The name social which lets you connect offline. Wandering around in Hauz Khas checking Zomato where to crash in, occasionally caught by people standing outside of the restaurants to lure you in, makes it very difficult to choose from. The place has his own charm, the ground floor is divided into different sections as per convenience.
We took the window seat so that we could enjoy the lake view along with food. It was Friday afternoon and the place was almost full. We started our afternoon with a Mocktail – Orange juice mocktail which was more on the sweeter side. Ordered – Double grilled Naga Chilli Cheese toast – As Naga chilli is known to be spicy and fused with chilli toast was making us more hungry to try it. The 8 pieces were served in the serving, perfectly crisped bread covered with cheese and with the touch of Naga Chilli making it more delectable.
The toast was followed by Croquettish – made of cheese and potato served with mango murabba (which I loved the most). Croquettes were deep fried making its outer covering crispy and soft from inside as filled with cheese.
Purani Dilli Chaat Platter – Are you excited by just reading the name? I was too and wanted to see how it turned out, the delicacies of Delhi Chaat in a place like this was not expected so ordered one platter. It is righty said that food that appeals to your eyes also tasted good (or might be my saying), the presentation was top notch. Everything was beautifully presented and the quantity was apt. 3 people can easily enjoy that platter. I mean to enjoy and if you’re planning to fill your tummy then enough for 2. An epic platter with Papdi Chaat, Dahi Bhalla, Raj Kachori and 5-6 Golgappas with chutney and Channa dal for the filling than your usual potato or Channa.
Chilli Paneer – Big pieces of Paneer chunks, perfectly tossed in the sauce was appetizing. My friend who loved Paneer instantly fall in love with it, after the very first bite and in no second it was finished while we were enjoying our first piece. Sometimes eating with elegance in front of your friends is a problem because they don’t wait until the dish is finished.
Bombay Bachelors – A typical Mumbai sandwich with sliced veggies, masala aloo bhaji, topped with mint chutney and Sev. Lightly grilled and was a bit dry for me and I couldn’t eat more than one. It was so dry and I had to order some drink to go with it.
Shakes – Oreo mud pot shake and Strawberry cheesecake shake – Loved the shakes, found it more on sweeter side which acted as a dessert too. After having them we were so full that we skipped the dessert.
A place which has something for everyone irrespective of their age. One of the lively places is Hauz Khas welcoming all type of people family or the couples. If you are looking for a place to date then this place is recommended. Friendly staff and beautiful environment with good food and service makes the place apart and makes your experience more relishing.
