What Makes It Awesome

Let's start with saying that (believe it or not) I had never ever given Middle Eastern food a shot before. Not even a Shawarma, Yes, you read that right. So when I stepped into the House Of Grills in the sea of cafes that Versova has, I only hoped that I was signing up for the right place. And no points for guessing how amazing my culinary experience was. Before I get to the cooling beverages and starters, some fun fact for you foodies to know: The owner of House Of Grills, also has a Bake House Cafe in Kala Ghoda which you've probably already been to, for their Victorian decor and lipsmacking food. Let's get started with the delicious fare I stuffed myself with, at the House of Grills. Zeeshan Jamal (the owner) recommended that I begin my food marathon with a Cranberry Mojito Slush (INR 150). I moved on to starters with a very interesting dish called the Zata'Ar Naan, which is basically your regular naan but with a twist. It is made using ground dried thyme, oregano, a herb called marjoram, toasted sesame seeds, and salt, of course. For INR 70 only, it is a huge naan, served with some delish hummus. And this dish, in my opinion, is the showstopper here. Next up was their Lebanese Platter, which does complete justice to its MRP. For INR 535, you get Harissa chicken kebabs, parsley chicken kebabs, Yemeni kebabs, the Zata'ar naan, and an Al-Baik chicken. The quantity is quite generous and I'd recommend grabbing 3 of your friends along to finish it. Now because all meals end with some sugar rush, I headed to their section for desserts on the menu. Who would have thought that they'll have a carrot phirni on their menu? They unfortunately did not have it with them that night but I'm told it tastes heavenly. I settled for a Moroccan Mud Cake (INR 200), and it was filling, soothing and left a warm fuzzy feeling that we normally identify with good food. All in all, this cafe really makes you want to come back to it. Not just for its food, but also for its fast service, easy-going vibe, and most importantly because everything's priced decently here. No chance of you feeling broke after paying the bill, guys. P.S: Make sure you have a huge appetite before you go here. A Lebanese Platter for dinner might need you to skip your lunch the day you're going.
