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 called for, from the cafe. I began 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 sharing it with maybe three more people.
Now because all meals end with some sugar rush, I had called for a dessert too. Who would have thought that they'll have a carrot phirni on their menu? Or a Moroccan Mud Cake? I settled for the latter (INR 200), and it was filling, soothing and left a warm fuzzy feeling that we normally identify with good food.
All in all, the House of Grills really makes you want to instantly bookmark 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.
