The famed Kake da Hotel has opened its doors to the residents of Golf Course Road and we could not be happier. Hearsay has it that their dishes are a class apart and I was lucky to taste their earthy lip smacking dishes. So here are a few of them:
Chicken Kali Mirch: Spicy and tangy, this lip smacking appetizer is there to win your hearts. The typical burning sensation of black pepper compliments the peppery flavour in addition to the succulency of the chicken pieces. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Chicken Burra: Just one bite and I fell short of words to describe it. Such delicate juiciness is difficult to find these days in restaurant prepared dishes. This was again tangy and quite spicy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Paneer Tikka: Not smoked or grilled properly, a but sour due to hot weather and devoid of salt.
Daal makhani: Tasted just like the one made at home, with no extra cream. It was flavourful – you can actually get the taste of fresh garam masala in it and each and every morsel with the roti gives a complex set of flavours. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Butter chicken: I am amazed by the selection of chicken pieces. Unlike many other restaurants which are driven more by profit than quality, Kake da hotel provides huge and good quality chicken pieces with enough meat in them. There are no smaller portions or even a neck in their selections and this emphasis on the quality is commendable. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Lachha Parantha: It was smoky and a bit burnt.
