Old World Charm

India Today - - SIMPLY DELHI - By Re­wati Rau

But for catch­ing some Ra­jasthan-bound buses, chances are you might not have ex­plored Bikaner House at In­dia Gate. If so, it’s time you made this lit­tle trip. This un­der­stated space is now home to one of the city’s most favourite restau­rants—Darya Ganj’s Chor Bizarre. Re­tain­ing the orig­i­nal restau­rant’s warm vibe, the brand new Chor Bizarre has al­most all the clas­sics—from a four-poster bed themed ta­ble to a ta­ble made out of an old sewing ma­chine. The vin­tage decor comes alive with clas­sic old Hindi Bol­ly­wood songs waft­ing from the place. The food and ser­vice com­ple­ments the over­all feel, as you’re served gen­er­ous por­tions of de­li­cious north In­dian or Kash­miri food. Our ab­so­lute favourite from the spread was Dal Chor B’zar with ulte tawe ka paran­tha but you must try the Kash­miri spread. We highly rec­om­mend the Aloo Bukhara Mirchi Korma with the sweet Bakarkhani or the Goshtaba. And if you’d rather go for some Mugh­lai fare, we’d sug­gest you try the Ni­hari gosht and Rara gosht. But we feel you def­i­nitely need more than one visit to get a real feel of the place, to soak in the nos­tal­gia and en­joy the de­li­cious food. Meal for two Rs 1,600 At Bikaner House, Pan­dara Road
