Roadhouse Cafe: A Must Try Destination For A Delicious Experience in G.K.

Roadhouse Cafe Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Greater Kailash in South Delhi has been a true home to many foodies. With many outlets in its credit, whenEver one is in or around Greater Kailash, one would never run of options for a quick bite or a lavish lunch/dinner. However the crux of the foodie affair always remains the same i.e how good the food is.

There might have been multiple locations in Greater Kailash that claim to serve the best food, but unfortunately most of them can live up to the promised words. Most of the food outlets have lost their magic of presenting food with extraordinary attention to ambiance, presentation or the serving of Hookah and alcohol.

ROAD6

But it is indeed a pleasure to find amidst such overhyped food outlets, a true foodie joint that has actually won the hearts of its visitors with the simplicity of tastes. A visit to the Roadhouse Case in G.K M Block market changed my opinion about the regular food joints we come across this overcrowded destination.

ROAD6

The Roadhouse Café in Thamel, Kathmandu has already been a favorite of many tourists and localites when it’s a matter of tasting great food in Kathmandu. And now Delhi can too boast of the extraordinary flavors of some Nepalese cuisine along with some pinches of continental and Italian.

Three Reasons For Which You Must Pay A Visit to Roadhouse Café

While I compliment this restaurant about its great food, it does not mean that it falls short of other parameters. In fact RoadHouse stands to be in a nutshell a culmination of all factors that make it a great destination for all foodies.

AMBIANCE

Roadhouse celebrates a spacious setting with soothing and sober décor. The terrace seating arrangement is an addition to its appeal as you can enjoy a superb view of the entire G.K area while you sip your favorite drink or take a bite at those beautifully cooked delicacies.

Hospitality

Any food joint despite its excellence in terms of food or ambiance may fail if it lacks proper hospitality. The courteous hospitality of the staff, the proper serving of food, the “ready at your service” attitude everything club up to offer a great experience. And fortunately Roadhouse fits in to all the aforementioned criteria without an iota of doubt. While we were having our lunch, the courteous staff approached us more than thrice only to confirm whether we were comfortable or not. These small gestures added to the magic of the lunch. Hope every other outlet captures this beautiful hospitality spirit so that we do not need to change our choices everytime we venture out for a lunch or dinner or a quick snacking session.

The open kitchen concept adds to the transparency factors in terms of hygiene and freshness.

Food

The crux of Roadhouse’s appeal is definitely its food. Without any sort of inordinate themes or added presentation tactics, the tastes of each of their specialities is indeed awesome. When you are in the lookout for a complete innovative food journey with the best of tastes and no added thematic or presentation embellishments, Roadhouse Café indeed fits into the list.

Check out What You Shouldn’t Miss When You Are at the Roadhouse Café

Smoked Chicken Sandheko

A Nepalese dish with juicy chicken pieces smoked and served with a combination of onions, bell peppers, cilantro and garlic with the tangy taste of lemon is something that would make you fall for this café at once. Undoubtedly it is one of the signature dishes you must try when you are at Roadhouse.

ROAD1

The Popeye Pizza

You must be wondering how can a connection be established between Popeye and a pizza, then let me tell you it is the magic of the spinach that binds the two. With a combination of spinach, sun dried tomatoes and black olives, this pizza is a vegetarian’s heaven indeed.

ROAD4

Triangoli Paasta

This is another signature dish which you should offer a try as soon as you are in Roadhouse Café. With veggies like zucchini, bell peppers, mushroom etc. along with basil pesto, it is a treat for all veggie lovers.

Knuckle Crushed Baby Potatoes

A healthy, vegetarian dish with deep fried baby potatoes along with no-fat yoghurt makes you have a healthy yet a delicious treat.

ROAD7

Desserts

Well, Roadhouse Delhi serves some of the best desserts in the city and most of them come along with their inhouse icecream. It is difficult to choose and specify one as the best signature dessert since all deserve a must try.

Pan Asian food in Delhi has taken a change of storm. While Delhi previously had only its share of Mughlai cuisines, now the entire culinary scenario has indeed witnessed a tumultuous change and definitely a change for the better. During one of my culinary journeys, when I had set forth to experience a Pan Asian cuisine, Big Wong XL situated at DLF Mall of India indeed turned out to be an extremely memorable one. And I will tell you the reasons why.

bg3

To begin with when you walk into this outlet of Big Wong, the hosts and the staff will steal all the attention by their smiles and hospitality. The ambience is equally soothing without any unnecessary add ons or extra inch of décor.

My foodie experience at Big Wong truly proved to be big enough. The reasons are great food and amazing hospitality. It is true that DLF Mall of India is crowded with some noteworthy food joints and Big Wong is indeed befits the location.
The entire culinary journey started off with an amazing mocktail :the cumin kokkum. I loved the combination of tangy and spicy flavours.

bg7
Next were the dimsums, the original chicken and Prawn chives dimsums with thai herbs were just out of the world. Soft and stuffed with ingredients they are the ‘not to be missed’ delicacies at Big Wong.

The know suey and thai curry were equally awesome.


Lastly I would come to the sushis that were the show stealers. We went fr the Nilgiri platter consisting of tuna, Salmon, crab and ebi varities. Each of them had a distinct taste that would keep lingering even hours after you leave the place.

Beachy Foodie Affairs

The food trail at BBQ Beach started with some soothing mocktails. The Nutty Balls mocktail punched with enriched ingredients like ripe bananas, peanut butter, milk as well as ice was undoubtedly an appetizing sight to the eye and definitely to our treasured foodie tongues. The fine and exquisite mix of the peanut butter and bananas made sure that we look forward to more such sumptuous mocktails from the chef.

My second choice went in favour of a sex and sassy one named “Bikini Oreo Swips”. The love of Oreo and the desire to view this exquisitely named drink made me agree to this and undoubtedly this too like its former one had lived beyond my expectations. Bikinis are not only visual delights, but treats to your taste buds too. 😉
