A welcoming new addition to Commons of DLF Avenue in Saket, The Tangra Project is helmed by chef Vikramjit Roy. He promises to take you down the memory lane of not only Kolkata classics with his Ballygunge chic menu. But he also packs the nostalgia of the imperial glory of 19th century Calcutta when Hakkas from China settled in the Tangra region. This funky fusion leaves us with an elegant decor that reminisces Bengali vibes and contemporary food that pops a flavourful party in your mouth. Most recommended dishes include Gondhoraj Dumplings, Rabibarer Mutton, Chengdu Chicken Wontons, The Tangra Project Chili Chicken, and The Rose.
British at heart, but international by choice. The Claridges New Delhi recently relaunched Pickwick, a multi-cuisine restaurant inspired by English author Charles Dickens’ novel ‘The Pickwick Papers’. The restaurant displays classic British interiors, with illustrations from the novel as a tribute to the legendary author, which sneakily seeps into their menu. Besides their delicious British classic menu (featuring Bangers & Mash, Jamaican Jerk Chicken, Oven-baked Sea Bass, and more), they also have a sushi bar and some of the tastiest dim sums. To satiate your sweet-tooth cravings, order the 24K Gold English bread butter pudding and the Coconut Cream Caramel with fruit salsa.
