We always want something traditional, something authentic, along with something new. Conventional and customary is appreciated only when backed with some fusion, and that is exactly what I experienced at the newly opened place, Angrezi Dhaba at Dadar west, at about 3 mins walking distance from the Dadar station.
Have an authentic Dhaba experience with modern delicacies, having some unique and innovative menu to delight your taste buds. The place has vibrant colour hues, in a complete filmy style, with all famous Bollywood movie posters, quirky décor items and very warm and friendly staff.
We started, with the mocktails like Jeera Kokum Punch: This refreshing drink has Kokum extract, orange juice, cumin seeds, soda, served on cracked ice.
Mango Coconut Daiquiri: Its fresh and stimulating, having fresh Mango pulp, coconut fudge syrup, coconut cream, delicious for sure, both the mocktails are available in cocktail format too.
In appetizers, we had, Pav Bhaji And Cheese Fondue: The traditional Pav Bhaji is topped with Italian cheese fondue and served with chunks of crispy buttered Pav. Highly recommended.
Chicken Sev Puri: It’s a twist to the traditional chat. The crispy Sev puri’s are topped with minced masala Kheema instead of potato, tamarind and mint chutney with the chat dressing.
Tandoori Chicken Crostini: Toasted bread slices are topped with small chunks of chicken tandoori mixed with bell peppers, fresh basil, tomatoes and spicy ketchup, it’s crunchy and delectable.
Murgh Tikka Paan: Another twist to the traditional Banarasi Paan, here the pan is filled with char grilled chicken tikkas, the kind of paan you won’t get anywhere. Try for its uniqueness.
Tandoori Pomfret: Tandoori masala marinated Pomfret is served with spicy mint chutney and topped with lemon slices.
In desserts, we tried, Apple Banana Crunch Caramel Parfait, Chocolate Overload and Cheese cherry cake, these frozen desserts, were a little moist, otherwise good, go for the food more than the desserts, or opt for more traditional ones like Gulab Jamun.
Angrezi Dhaba, to be best enjoyed in a group, make the most of the spacious, delightful Dhaba with your gang to enjoy every bit of it.
