With so many food joints and restaurants, Mosque Road has never let our tummies down. In fact, it’s our go-to neighbourhood for authentic Middle Eastern and Muslim-style cooked food. But we never thought we’d ever sit up in a restaurant’s balcony here and tuck into a Chateaubriand Supreme steak and lamb chops. Making it happen is Lazio Steaks and More, a steakhouse set up on the second floor of a nondescript building, right above a supermarket, offering a quaint ambience with classic red and white checkered tablecloths and cycle-themed decor, and an alfresco seating space too.
What’s on the menu, you ask? Well, plenty of steaks, of course. We tried the Pepper Steak and the Chateaubriand Supreme which were nice and tender. Served with a side of veggies and mashed potato, their portions are quite generous. The lamb chops are a little tough though. Prices for their steaks started at INR 300. They also had some Continental offerings like pasta, meat pies and sandwiches. Burgers are on the menu too. We tried the Juicy Lucy burger, a loaded number with a chicken or beef patty, a fried egg and fries on the side. Not an ideal for all you vegetarians out there, as there aren’t too many options for you here apart from some Chinese food. Their mains start at INR 200 and you can settle a meal for two at a reasonable INR 900.
