Into the City

India Today - - INSIDE - by sukant deepak

A check­list of the coolest restau­rants, events and things to shop for this sum­mer.

Though orig­i­nally con­cieved as a take­away restau­rant, the place has over time started en­joy­ing im­mense pop­u­lar­ity among those wish­ing to have a quick snack in an in­for­mal set­ting. The in­ti­mate, cosy space ex­udes a warm per­sonal touch un­like modern restau­rants in Chandi­garh, which look like cor­po­rate of­fice cafes. Dressed with fresh flow­ers, books on Rumi, the quin­tes­sen­tial dose of love to get you through the day, en­sure that the well-lit café is per­fect for any oc­cas­sion. The cafe is known for the ke­babs in Turkey, Iran, Por­tu­gal, Spain and Greece with an in­ter­est­ing take on Adana Ke­bab from the city of Adana in Turkey and on the Koobideh Ke­bab, the na­tional dish of Iran. Serv­ing food cre­ated by the culi­nary cross-fer­til­i­sa­tion from around Asia, the Mid­dle East and Europe, the staff is al­ways more than will­ing to nar­rate sto­ries of the ke­babs that trav­elled across the Silk route, cross­ing bor­ders, tak­ing var­i­ous forms, shapes, and flavours. In fact, th­ese mouth-wa­ter­ing flavours can be at­trib­uted to the age-old char­coal grill tech­niques.
