Ten-Second Takeaway

Queen’s Kitchen, a small joint in a galli next to Amar Colony, does a range of Indian tandoori fare along with tandoori momo, Afghani momo and their claim to fame: The vodka momo.

Two of Our Favourite Things

…Momo and vodka. The peeps at Queen’s Kitchen have figured out a way to merge the two. Whereas we feared we were going to be getting little flour balls filled to the brim with vodka, we were just a little relieved {and a little disappointed, maybe} that the vodka is mixed in the batter and not the filling.

Once it’s got a definite shape, the momo are popped into the tandoor till they’re brownish, and then doused in a tomato onion gravy and garnished with onions and garlic. It was a flavoursome affair. However, we couldn’t taste the vodka too much.

#LBBTip: Request the momowalla to go a tad heavier on the booze if you really want to get a taste.

A Few More of Our Favourite Things

If a big fat Indian meal is right up your alley, we’d strongly recommend going down this one. They’ve got a range of delish dishes including a beautiful Afghani Chicken, Dal Makhni, mutton curry and butter chicken. We’d suggest staying off the biryani {and the pasta. And the pizza} but instead, opt for a veg pulao, Makhmali Paratha or the classic butter naan.

The joint has a small seating area {can seat around 15 people} but it’s not the best. We’d bookmark it for ordering in or stopping by for their momo.
