We were at first hesitant when we saw the hole in the wall restaurant (Anand Restaurant) that our guide recommended. We had been warned about Delhi Belly, but felt bad to reject our guide who was insisting that this is the best. In the end we had no regrets. I ordered an extra plate of chicken briyani which is one of the specialities. Ignored the insect crawling on the table and the dim dingy interior in a garish orange (the place only looks bright in the photos due to the auto flash).
Loved the font that was used for the menu board.
I think only in India can you have Coke in a glass bottle like we used to have back in the 70’s in Singapore.
The briyani was oh go good. But if I were to be perfectly honest, I still prefer the one from Yakadar in Singapore’s Tekka Market. I guess the Delhi Briyani was much spicier.
The seats were very narrow and not too comfortable. They actually placed 3 chairs together to form a bench.
I’d love to eat in places like these!
yeah in the end fusspot me was so glad she did 🙂
Love the photos. Keep them coming!
Also, I have never seen such a big plate of onions – it’s not just onions is it?
they were mainly onions, but there was so much food besides briyani like naan etc that we didn’t even have that. In India I loved the raita and yoghurt as well. Always made with full cream milk. Strangly the coffee and tea I had in north india were always dilute. I miss the rich milky tea I had in South India – and Singapore’s tea is wonderful too (Arab Street & Little India) – I love it.
Briyani is Singaporean; biryani is Indian. They are cooked slightly differently.
Thanks for explaining. Was wondering about the difference.
