Khaaja Chowk has been around in Gurgaon for years and everyone has had the pleasure of sampling their delicious take on North Indian cuisine at the Plaza mall. They have recently opened up the first Indian Cafe in MGF Metropolitan Mall that promises to bring you dishes that resonate their original philosophy but packaged to be trendier in presentation that will surely win over the youth’s hearts.
We had the privilege to visit the newly opened cafe and are giving you the low down on what to expect when you head here for a meal.
Who is it for
Whether you choose to have a dinner with friends or a meal out with the family, the cafe is perfect for these outings as it comfortably adapts to suit all needs. Be it a binge oriented lunch or an alcohol induced dinner, you are certainly in the right spot.
The interiors are an elegant mix of elements including colourful seating, a grand bar and earthy wooden tones. They remain true to their quirky nature with the use of bright graphic pop art prints, eclectic addition of colourful objects making up their wall art and the iconic red auto.
Get Set Gobble
With the introduction of Bihari, Bengali, Gujarati and South Indian cuisines to the existing North Indian menu, we are presented with a multitude of dish options to dive into. There is enough variety for vegetarians and non vegetarians alike which is awesome.
When they say that the Chicken 65 will make you salivate in 65 different ways, they are not joking! Alternatively you can try the Nawabi murgh seekh masala that was a spicy wonder and surely a winner for us. If you are a fan of kebabs you should definitely give their Fish tikka, Hazratganj ke galawati kebabs and Gongura paneer tikka a shot. The Jadavpoore Puchka chaat is served in a cute little thela and Palak patta chaat promises to be all sorts of crispy and tangy.
The main course on the menu ranges extensively but we suggest you get the Dum ka murg and Laal Maans that are well balanced in term of spices and meat literally falls off the bone. Vegetarians can indulge in Kathal dum masala and Gobi mussalam…we promise you’ll be very happy. The Kosha mangsho with luchi will certainley hit nostalgic notes for Kolkatans (like it did with us). If you love a bit of drama with the meal might we suggest you try their Flaming Claypot (the pot is literally in flames when served) that is cracked open at the table to reveal slow cooked Nalli boti ki Nihari or Kababi murgh…must try if you are here for dinner.
Pair your meal with one of their Signature cocktails like the Paan supari martini (strictly for paan lovers only) or the Chilli aam masala that have ice cubes with frozen surprises like whole green chilli or paan in them..talk about being kitsch!
