Ten-Second Takeaway

Hidden behind the glory of Desserted, the pattisserie and bakery in Vasanth Nagar, The Place Behind Desserted is a hit for North Indian comfort food. That too for reasonably rates.

Chow Down

Desi Fries, Mutton Biryani and Chilli Chicken

Sip On

Brownie Blizzard and Cinnamon Spiced Latte

Winning For

Homely food that is spot-on for taste and easy on the wallet.

Lowdown On Ambience

Not really a place for art deco, it’s a bungalow that’s been converted into a cutesy red-white themed little restaurant. Marble top tables and benches keep it fun and casual, and set the mood for a chilled out meal. Works great for even just a coffee catch-up.

What’s In A Name

Not particularly innovative but greatly intriguing, when a place is called The Place Behind Desserted {which it is by the way}, you go. From Indian Chinese, Mughlai, South Indian or nibbles you’ll be spoiled for choice. So armed with huge appetites we started with Desi Fries, Paneer Tikka and Malai Chicken Tikka. Desi Fries just throws in curry powder and leaves to make it better. The paneer is soft and fresh while the chicken is succulent and will easily pass off as mains with biryani or a few rotis.

Solid Tuck In

Ditch every diet you’re on as the biryani here {mutton, for us} is simply delicious. Chicken Fry – the sinful and addictive kebab, is great too and while we did like the butter chicken with roti, Chilli Chicken with {greasy} veggie noodles cut it too. Weren’t we chuffed to get two types of comfort food at the same address! And then you throw in proper burgers and massive sandwiches {try the Croque Monsieur or Croque Madame} and you’ve got a culinary party going.

Sweet Everythings

Dessert comes from Desserted {that’s why the name duh!}, so there’s no dearth of it — from lemon tarts to dark chocolate cakes. Milkshakes such as the Brownie Blizzard works like a meal because they’re divinely chunky but go easy on them if you want to focus on food. Finish off with a Cinnamon Spiced Coffee like us, if you want to come around full circle.

So We’re Thinking…

Comfort, soul, greasy, street. Call it what you will but with biryani, sandwiches, kebabs and desserts to die {kill} for, this one’s stolen our weak-for-food hearts.
