This Food Kiosk In Jodhpur Park Serves Crab, Lobster & More Starting At Just INR 100
Hunt It Down
Jodhpur Park just keeps adding new stuff to its already burgeoning food scene. Hogsworth, a small kiosk serving up a huge range of dishes is located on a lane very close to Blue Mug and the famous Nepal Sweets in Jodhpur Park. The bright yellow doors and signage makes it easy to spot.
Great Food, Easy On The Pocket
We are gobsmacked as much by the range of dishes as we are by the prices here. The Lobster Tempura, crumb fried with Indian herbs is for just INR 160 (the ‘giant’ one which is 400gms per piece costs INR 650). We had a crispy fried octopus in a tangy sweet chilly sauce for INR 260 only. The Hog’s crab meat delight, flavored with herbs and cheese and crumb fried was just INR 100 (for the small portion, the large one is INR 180).
If you have a weak spot for bacon, then you must have the devil on horseback — seedless dates and cheese, with bacon wrapped around them and grilled. The sweetness of the dates, the creamy saltiness of the cheese and the smoky bacon hits all the right spots.
They serve steaks as well with a side of mashed potato and grilled vegetables and mushrooms. We had the chicken steak — the small portion was for INR 130 and totally worth every penny, especially if you love white, cheesy sauce! Hotdogs and burgers start fro INR 50 (they have crabmeat hotdog and burger!).
While the menu is largely Continental fare, they also do some Asian dishes like their ‘”one heart warming one bowls” — perfect for two people. It’s a soupy base with wok-tossed noodles, greens, sprouts, mushrooms and any added meat like chicken, pork or seafood. The veg bowl is a steal at INR 60, the chicken is INR 100, and it goes up to INR 250 if you want a mixed bowl.
If you are in the mood for Indian, you can go for the pork or chicken curry with steamed rice.
The Chef's Well Travelled
The place was started by chef Indranil Roy and his friends Tirthankar Biswas, and Sumit Bala. Roy has travelled the world (from Dubai to Mongolia) working as a chef. All or one of the three are always around to attend to you, and suggest dishes off the menu.
If you are wondering about the name — it’s derived partly from famous school for wizards (in fact, we think we heard the Potter signature tune on Tirthankar’s phone!) and from the fact that everything here is worth hogging (and the prices mean you can have your money’s worth).
Hogsworth has a couple of tables and chairs on the pavement outside if you want to sit and eat there. Or you can order takeaway. Call 90514 72057 for home deliveries, or you can also get their dishes on Swiggy.
