We discovered a quaint cafe in Adchini that does incredible French and Tamil food. Chateau de Pondicherry is winning us over for their fresh cocktails, stellar food and gorgeous decor.
Watch Peacocks From The Window While Enjoying Franco-Tamil Food At This Charming Cafe
A Slice Of Pondicherry In The Heart Of Delhi
We entered and found ourselves pleasantly surprised by how big the space was. With its charming, tiled floors, dangling lamps and wrought-iron windows that offer a view of Sanjay Van, we were instantly transported to the quiet town of Auroville. You can see peacocks from the forest in the early morning hours while enjoying a plate of fresh apple and cinnamon crepes. Their draped fairy lights, a propped-up bicycle and rugged walls with bright tiles remind us of sunnier days in Pondi. Their bar is small but cosy; if you’re stopping by in the evening, we recommend you grab a seat here. If you’re dropping by for lunch or breakfast, grab a table with a window to enjoy the view.
Coastal Curries For The Win
The family-run restaurant is all hands-on-deck when it comes to cooking and service. We started our meal with mini Visri dosas, served with two delicious chutneys, katirakalay chutney and millagayi thuvayal. Next up was their Mimosa Muthaiy, devilled eggs with the most delicious stuffing served with prawns on top. This one truly stole the show We proceeded to dig into the main course, steaming hot rice served with athu kary dalcha, which is mutton cooked in dal. We moved on to their killer chicken chettinad curry, served with Malabar paranthas. We couldn’t decide which of the two we enjoyed more; the flavours used were incredible and left us wishing we weren’t so stuffed. We hear the French food is incredible, though we haven’t tried it ourselves. Wrapping up our meal with a generous slice of their fresh lemon cake provided the perfect ending to a great meal. Definitely a place we’ll be heading back to soon.
So, We're Saying...
If you’ve been looking for a new restaurant, we recommend you go here. It’s the perfect place to grab dinner and drinks with your friends, or for date night with bae.
