On the highway to Delhi

People rarely like to experiment with their food; authenticity and taste are sacred when it comes to a gastronomic experience. ‘Helloo Delhi’ stays true to its name and delivers what the name promises - authentic North Indian cuisine.

“We opened around November 2 last year and the response has been phenomenal since then,” says Anurag, manager of the entire chain. “The focus has been on providing proper Delhi food and this has attracted a crowd sans age boundaries. We have two branches - one in HSR Layout and one in Koramangala- and we are opening another one in Indiranagar soon,” he adds.

It is somewhat reminiscent of the family style high-quality dhabas you see along the highways in the northern part of the country in terms of food. The exteriors and interiors are, of course, suited to the modern metropolis of Bengaluru.

Coming to the food, the keyword is authenticity. Right from the starters to the main course and desserts, it is all about ‘Dilli ka khaana’. In starters, choose from a variety of options like ‘Murgh pudina shorba’ (mint flavoured chicken broth), ‘Gulabi lassi’ (that’s lassi laced with Roohafza) and spiced buttermilk. Special shout out to ‘Aam panna’ and ‘Jaljeera’; nothing like a refreshing burst to liven up those tastebuds.

The starters are next in line and don‘t disappoint you. Close your eyes as you take a bite and you will be transported right to the streets of Delhi.
From ‘Lazeez paneer tikka’, ‘Chatpata tandoori aloo’ and ‘Makkai seekh kebab’ in the vegetarian section to ‘Amritsari macchi tikka’ and ‘Mutton seekh kebab’ for the non-vegetarians; the options are varied but similar in the fact that the spices are on point and the flavours blend deliciously with the aromas.
A must try is the ‘Dahi ke kebab’ which deserves a special mention for its texture and flavour.

“The starters have a huge following among the regular crowd. The most popular dishes in this are ‘Amritsari soybeen chanp’, ‘Tangri kebab’, ‘Bhuna murg tikka’ and so on,” says Anurag.

He goes on to add, “The ‘biryani’ is also an all-time favourite. We have a
chef who has specialised in making ‘dum biryani’
for the last 25-30 years
and that shows in the taste.”

Apart from ‘biryani’, the main course includes ‘pulao’, rice and a huge variety of Indian breads. Whether it is ‘kulcha’, ‘naan’ or ‘paratha’, rest assured you can’t go wrong for these are the USP of the restaurant.

Coming to the best part, dessert. From ‘Gulab jamun’ and ‘Rasmalai’, the sweets are a perfect ending to what should ideally be a satisfying and delightful meal.

‘Helloo Delhi’ is located on 80 Feet Road, 4th Block, Koramangala.
