Kebab Gali: Serving food worth drooling over!
Thank the medieval Turkish soldiers for being the first people, all those centuries ago, to have come up with the idea of Kebabs! Now, fast forward to modern days & here we have “Kebab Gali” a quaint little restaurant serving a plethora of, well no surprise there, Kebabs!!!
Having been invited to a bloggers’ meet at one of their branches (Malviya Nagar) couple of days earlier, I got a first hand experience of some of their delicacies & without keeping any suspense I should say they were outstanding!!!
But let’s have a comprehensive view first! The restaurant’s location at Corner Market, Malviya Nagar is somewhat tricky to notice at the first go, being sandwiched among other establishments but once you enter it is comparatively quiet & absolutely welcoming for oneself.
There is seating arrangement for about 30 people, give or take, so it’s not, strictly speaking, a BIG place however that’s one thing that I personally like in an eatery because in my experience, the bigger the place the lesser they give attention to details. But of course exceptions are always there.
Now coming back to the topic, there is ample lighting which gets a big thumbs up from me & the decor is apt according to the theme. The staff & most importantly, the owner (who was present during the bloggers’ meet) was absolutely forthcoming & helpful in every way. He also gave a brief description of how each dish is prepared in their kitchen & how they make their own blend of secret spices! Tell you the truth, getting to know all these details really fired up my taste buds & made every dish seem like all the more delicious.
The very first dish we started with was Chicken Garlic Tikka! At first glance you may think it’s only Chicken Malai Tikka but wait till you taste it & you will notice the subtle difference that a whiff of Garlic can make! Another thing to be said here & that goes for every single dish that rolled out in front of me, was that the plating & presentation was always spot on & deserved to be mentioned separately.
Then came the Shikhampuri Kebab which were as much a delight to the tummy as they were to the eyes! Such perfect ellipses of food goodness, I tell you!
The next dish that came out really had me amazed & in awe; it was the Chicken Chapli Kebab. Such tender pieces of spiced meat that the moment you pick them up they just crumble then & there. I think I almost finished the whole plate by myself!
This was followed by Galouti Kebab that came on top of neatly cut pieces of Warqi Paranthas. Personally, I am not a fan of these style of Kebabs as I find them too malleable but that doesn’t take away the fact that they were cooked to perfection.
Next came the Dohra Kebab. They are called so because they are actually mutton kebabs that are wrapped around with a layering of Chicken Kebabs thereby given double the taste from two varieties of meat together.
I also got myself trying the Mutton Nihari which was decent enough, before settling down for Chicken Biryani towards the last leg of the meal to wind up things on a grand note.
As for the need of satisfying the sweet tooth, I tasted the extra-sweet Shahi Tukda & also the Gulab Jamun. And That’s how a royal Kebabi feast came to an end!
So, people do check out Kebab Gali as it is highly recommended by me & let me know about your experience
