Imly: A refreshingly new food joint @ Rajendra Place, Delhi
It’s a train! It’s a restaurant! No, it’s IMLY!!!!! If you have recently been around the Rajendra Place area in New Delhi then you might have come across the unmissable facade of a 250 feet long artificial train engine complete with a coaches at its back. Look closely & you will see it’s actually a full fledged eatery, doling out all kinds of street food there are to offer & how!
I was fortunate enough to be called upon at the grand opening of this wonderful place along with a plethora of like-minded food bloggers & it was a majestic event from minute one to the end. The ambiance, the host, the staff & their attention towards even the minutest details of food & service easily rivaled every other place I had ever been to, and I am not exaggerating. One could easily see all the love & hard work that has gone into making Imly a shining reality. The very first thing that caught my attention were these bottles of Banta bottles that they used for serving mocktails; minimalist yet intelligent!
Then came the Gol Gappe, served in a miniature pushing cart: another great example of creativity put to good use & they tasted great as well! Furthermore, I sampled a bit of Pav Bhaji, Chilli Paneer & Masala Dosa, all of which struck the right taste buds.
And just when it couldn’t have gotten any better than this, there was something special planned for us by the hosts & it included a Dhol, some traditional Rajasthani dancers, even a fire dancer & a bit of turban-tying. Safe it say, there was a loooooottttttt of dancing & good times with some old friends & some new ones, two of whom gravitated my camera towards them during the whole evening!
VERDICT: I give 11 out of 10 to Imly because they excelled in every possible way! Do check it out, people. It’s worth it!!!
