Delhi Streets - Indian Street Food @ Friday, July 08, 2016
Tuesday 28th June
Delhi Streets is quite popular as a cheat eats place, located far far away from the city center, near the Spencer street/Southern cross end of Flinders lane, on Katherine place near Luxbite. Best to walk up from the Aquarium.
A small restaurant with only a few tables and mainly bar seats, all the tables were booked on this Tuesday evening.
Known for Indian street food with a modern twist there were pizzas and wraps as well the chocolate m&ms naan!
For a small place the lone waiter wasn't up to x as the tables weren't wiped down and the menu was sticky. But what they lacked in cleanliness was made up in friendly service.
To start off with we had 'Pani puri' a crispy cracker ball thing lightly filled with potatoes, chickpeas, tamarind/mint/yoghurt chutney, served with a green spiced water $8 (5 pieces).
You'd pour the liquid into the ball and consume it in a delightful mouthful! A bit spicy but the sauce balances out the flavours and it's perfect!
Aloo tikki Potato Cakes $9
More like an not fried croquette this one was, a spicy one we consumed in between sips of mango lassi.
It was odd that entrees arrived before drinks.
Mains were what we came for, huge trays featuring a bit of everything. I picked two curries ($12) while jas picked three ($14).
Mix Thali $12. The Royal Dish - Choice of any two curries (veg/non veg) served with rice, Naan, pappadum, raita and salad
Curries change often and tonight the options were, are listed above.
My picked were the butter chicken and red lentils, while he had the lamb and x.
With the huge platter there were small (cup sized) servings of curry but that's all you need to accompany the naan and rice. The butter chicken was a bit sweet, and was low on spices. Jas says they've been toned down, white-tified XD. Fairly average though platters were fun, with entrees we could barely finish them!
But there's always room for dessert! Maybe not carbs and sugar at the same time (chocolate naan I'll be back for you) but ice cream!
Pistachio Kulfi $5
Pistachio ice cream for dessert. More like condensed milk based though, it was a bit much. Eaten like corn on a cob as a skewer (regular thin skewer) couldn't support the weight, you need a paddle pop stick.
Service was good though slow for a small restaurant that seated 12 when we were there.
Best to make a booking. Fairly average but with cheap $12 platters.
We'll be back for chocolate naan! During the day the lighting by the window would be great.
