#LBBPicks: 9 Winter Menus To Try This Season

Ten-Second Takeaway

Winter is coming and with it, all the stunning winter menus. Here’s where to head this month {and hopefully the next – Delhi, please stay cold} for a bellyful of soup, hot chocolate and all the noms.

Smoke House Deli

If there’s anything we’re craving this holiday season it’s wine and chocolate, and Smoke House Deli promises to warm up your spirits with both. Be it their fresh yet traditional SHD Classic Mulled Wine or their Better Than Baileys Hot Chocolate, we promise that you will be left wanting more.

Birdie Num Num

Looking for a fancy spruce up for your regular momo? Try out Birdie Num Num’s exquisite yet delicate, smoked salmon and potato momo.

The spicy Telangana Chilli Chicken is sure to set fire to your taste buds, enough to keep you warm this winter, and we’re not complaining.

Molecule

If Delhi chaat is usually synonymous with thelas and sneezing old men, get ready to redefine that completely. Their version of Ras Malai consists of powdered cinnamon and an array of berries.

You could also try their succulent Koliwada Chicken or their Dahi Vada 2050.

Chaayos

Keep yourself warm and toasty this winter with Chaayos’ Gur Waali Chai or their special Chatkara Chai. Be sure to team it with our season’s favourite Apple Strudel Cake.

However, if you’re looking for something spicy, new and experimental we recommend the scrumptious Masala Chai Cake.

Cafes & Coffee Shops

Sakleys

With the season’s fresh and juicy winter greens brought straight from the farm and served directly to your fork, Sakleys brings to you their range of organic and homely Winter Salads loaded with nuts, figs, grilled chicken and our absolute favourite, duck!

We recommend you team these with avocado mousse barrel-aged feta bruschettas. If you’re looking for a good and heart Sunday meal, be sure to try out their John Dory with date salad or even a good old wintery Chicken Pot Pie.

Dhaba By Claridges

Winter calls for comfort Punjabi food, and Dhaba by Claridges perfectly fits the bill. Try out the Tawa Bater Masala, a marinated quail dish, if you’re looking to step away from your traditional Sarso Ka Saag and Makkhi Di Roti.

Be sure to finish it up with their Moong Dal Ka Halwa.

Guppy

If you thought that being vegetarian was the reason you’d miss out on Guppy’s sushi spread this winter, then you definitely are in for a treat.

Guppy’s Omakase Vegetarian Sushi promises to be nothing less than a sushi heaven for vegetarians. Keep yourself warm and toasty with their delicious Lobster and Seafood Soup and the famous Battera Sushi.

Ek Bar

If you’re looking for a mix of cocktails and a hearty meal, then this weekend, Ek Bar has you covered. We especially liked their desi version of a granola bar, which was essentially Jhal Muri served with some sour charred fruits and a home-made buttermilk sorbet on the side.

If it’s meat you’re craving, then satiate those taste buds with their Amritsar Kekda or even the Minced Mutton Cutlet. We recommend the Degree Kaa – gold rum, bitters, egg white, coffee syrup and tonic. Yum!
