Indulge in some special 'momos'

Affordable Portions

delicious Thai Nam Prik paneer, manchow noodles,  wontons and manchow soup.

The small but neat restaurant is tucked away in Cooke Town after Wheeler Road flyover. Ten-years-old, it has steadily built a loyal customer base among the Chinese and Thai food lovers in the City. Binod Mukhia, who owns the place, says that his idea behind serving large portions is to have people eat at the restaurant more often.

The humble place specialises in serving some lip-smacking food items and everyone who visits the place is served two wontons free of charge. “This is so that people would have something to munch on while their order arrives,” says Binod. A visit to a Chinese restaurant is never complete without having momos and the same is the case with ‘Delicacy’. “Momos are our signature dish. While the momos are almost the same in most places, it is the sauce that makes our momos special,” says Binod.

“It is a secret sauce made from frozen chillies brought especially from Darjeeling, lemon grass, garlic, ginger and coriander,” he adds. A plate of momos has 12 pieces as compared to eight or 10 served elsewhere and is served in a wooden box, which keeps them warm. The momos are delightfully light and the chilli sauce is mildly spicy adding to the flavour.

If you are the kind who likes soups, then do try out one here. The manchow soup is well-cooked, slightly thick and very flavoursome. The soup can be shared with another person because even half a cup is quite a bit. Some of the other soups to go for are lemon and pepper soup, lemon grass soup, wonton soup and noodle soup.

A must try item on the menu is the Thai Nam Prik, which can be had with fish, paneer, vegetables and chicken. The dry starter has a spicy and slightly bitter taste. It is made from onions, veg oyster sauce, chillies and tomato sauce. One could either go for vegetarian or non-vegetarian items but it is the sauce which really makes the dish unique.

The sweetness of the caramalised onions, mixed with the slight bitterness of the sauce, makes for a great combo.  Some of the other starters on the menu are chilly mushroom, chicken chilly basil, lemon basil chicken and Pattaya paneer.

‘Delicacy’ can be described as a tiny yet very fast place serving delicious Chinese food fare and great service. But what makes this place highly recommendable is its affordability.
