Butter Chicken Pasta & Keema Pizza at The Delhi Canteen

Navni posted on 18 November

Shortcut

College might be over, but you can still go back to the days of pigging out at the canteen. Presenting Malviya Nagar’s latest addition- The Delhi Canteen. Expect the regular canteen ka khana served with a twist and in a classier ambience.

Eat

Monty’s All Time Favourite, Hitler Ka Pulao, Caramellody

Drink

Chatpataka

Winning

The canteen-like decor, and the use of colourful cylindrical tiffin boxes to serve some of the dishes

All that shines

The first thing you see on the wall is a big pink glowing heart, joined with a bade ee ki matra spelling out ‘Dilli’ oh-so-creatively. A large red scooter adorns one wall while another is completely dedicated to photographs and artwork. You can also indulge in some reading- simply pick up a book from the fairy-lights-embellished shelf.

Mix picks

The menu might come across as a bit of a hodge-podge at first glance but take your time with the puns in the names {Ham Kisi Se Kam Nahi, Kaisadiya?, Curryuppa}, and the descriptions and you’ll realise it’s a selection of Italian, Mexican and Continental infused with Indian flavours.

We started with the Nacho Nacho which was a pile of nachos doused in sour cream, mint chutney and spices. This was followed by the Hitler Ka Pulao which is essentially a sausage biryani served in a typical Indian tiffin carrier. The Meaty Affaire {keema pizza} and Monty’s All Time Favourite {penne in a butter chicken sauce} were undoubtedly the highlight of the meal, resplendent in all their Punjabi-ness.

Sugar and salt

The dessert section in contrast is small, but offers winners like the Caramellody {salted caramel chocolate cake jar}; the salt in this, however, is strong and may require an acquired taste. They also have run-of-the-mill desserts such as the chocolate mousse.
