Want to eat some delicious seafood but can’t hit the seaside? These coastal restaurants in Delhi offer delicious options to curb your cravings!
Seafood is a delicate, gastronomic delight of flavours that packs a punch in a single mouthful. Be it braised, steamed fish or a vegetable stew with simple appam, or heavily spiced dishes such as xacuti or curries, coastal regions in India have dishes that are flavourful and wholesome and will keep you wanting to go back for more.
However, getting a good coastal meal, if you don’t live near the seashore, can be a challenge. The freshness of the seafood is what makes it worth the time (and price), and anything less than perfection isn’t as flavourful. However, there’s no need to worry, because even if you’re in a city like Delhi, you can enjoy the delectable flavours.
