The recently opened Verandah Moonshine in Punjabi Bagh, New Delhi caught our eye with its unbelievable reviews online. We had to go and see what the brouhaha was all about and believe you me, Verandah turned out to be a lot more than what we had imagined. It is a courtyard-themed restaurant with a beautiful rooftop seating and sinful food to pamper yourself with. Their hospitality, ambience and of course the food surpassed all our expectations!
Our afternoon began with a Summer Treat (Orange and Pineapple Mocktail) which went perfectly with the food and really was a treat to our palate. We went with Chef Pawan Bisht’s recommendations and kicked off our meal with Cream Cheese Stuffed Tandoori Aloo, Sago Popcorn, Verandah’s Signature Chicken Boti Kebabs (served cutting chai style!), Chicken Boti Appam and Verandah’s Signature Chakhna Platter (the platter was served with 6 jars filled with chakhna from different regions of India).
Moving on to the main course, we indulged in Kaake Da Saag Chicken with Stuffed Garlic Naan. For dessert, we ‘overindulged’ in the Mava Cheesecake and Mango Curd. The star of our sinful meal you ask? Honestly, each dish was unique which burst with flavours! But if we had to pick our favourites, it would be the Tandoori Aloo and Mava Cheese Cake.
The portions were extremely generous which is rarely seen in restaurants these days. Chef Pawan has magic in his hands and a second visit is due for sure, one visit was definitely not enough!
