One fine day I decided to pay a visit to a newly opened cafe cum restaurant at Connaught Place in New Delhi. The entrance of the cafe took me to the British era of restaurants. The main dining hall of the restaurant was exquisite. The black and white painted walls of Smoke House Deli was extremely extraordinary pieces to remember the iconic places of Delhi.
It was a typical combination of Mughals, modern times and European era. The artistes have beautifully designed the walls in the memories of those places when it was hard to find a single dhaba or eatery nearby. The places which have been exhibited on the walls were- Agrasen Ki Baoli, Odeon Cinema, Luteyans and many others as shown in the images.
Coming to the delicacies, being a vegetarian, among all the food items I preferred to taste the vegetarian ones.So, it was wild mushroom soup, Aglio Olio Spaghetti and the usual ones of Smoke House Deli, the garlic bread.
Wild Mushroom Soup was a thick and a plain soup. The presence of starch in the soup made it thick and heavy for the starters. As expected to be a spicy starter it turned out to be a very plain soup. However, the Aglio Olio Spaghetti was a typical Italian dish which spiced up the taste buds.
Overall, it felt that I was in a time machine with a food platter in my hand which can take me to the historical places of Delhi.
