Shekaza, Kalkaji, New Delhi

There definitely arrives a time when you move over the glitzy restaurants serving fast food and return to the classy old school establishments which still serve the dishes of your childhood. Such places continue to improvise their dishes but maintain their uniqueness. And Shekaza is one such dine out restaurant which will impress you with their fine food and services.

We have a thing for Britishesque or European interiors with minimalism and Shekaza is the epitome of such specifications. The restaurant portrays soothing paintings with peaceful environs.

It has been running successfully for the past thirty years and with their impeccable service, we seriously wish they continue to achieve new milestones.

Non veg kebab platter: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Afghani chicken tikka – perfectly grilled and melt in the mouth

Fish tikka – extremely mellow and slightly tangy fish pieces with a subtle crusty exterior.

Gilaafi kebabs – firm and flavourful with hints of sweetness because of the presence of chopped bell peppers.

Chicken tikka – Spicy and tender chicken pieces which are difficult to resist

Drums of Heaven: For a change, this was hot but not spicy to the point of burning your palate. The magic of chopped onion and garlic along with a slight drizzle of vinegar and honey on a crusty leg piece of fried chicken can leave you in splits. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Dahi ke kebab: The sweet yet sour hung curd deep fried in a crunchy exterior of a secret ingredient (we are aware but will not reveal) is bound to give you a major food gasm. The presence of chopped green chillies and bell peppers does give a different dimension to these lovelies. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Lemon chicken: Boneless chicken pieces drenched in a subtle yet tangy gravy of lemon and fresh vegetables – broccoli, carrots, baby corn, zuchhini, garlic, tomatoes, sweet corn and spring onions – maelstrom of flavours which can not be forgotten easily. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Shekaza special Hakka Noodles: The finest noodles tossed with boneless chicken chunks, eggs, carrots, mushrooms, bell peppers, broccoli and spinach and served to you without the addition of vinegar – could we stop ourselves? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Chicken Rara: Boneless chicken pieces drenched in a tomato based thick gravy of fine chicken keema – why not? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Overall rating: 5/5

Will we come here again? Yes and with family

The Healthy Rasoi, Qutab Plaza, DLF phase 1, Gurgaon

For a health conscious foodie/food blogger like me, calorie counted meals are a treat while eating out. And when a delivery outlet decides to serve calorie counted dishes prepared in olive oil, I cannot keep my hands or palate away.

Grillled chicken breast: Not so good. Too much of Italian seasoning mars the experience of digging into a juicy chicken breast. Additionally, this one got chewy and dry and the herbs had not penetrated to the insides.

Chicken seekh salad: My favourite kebabs re-invented in a healthy salad – now how cool is that? Finely chopped seekh kebabs in a medley of chopped cucumbers, beetroot, bell peppers, carrots and tomatoes drenched in a tangy and spicy dressing with hints of oregano – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Scrambled egg package: The potato mash and the scrambled eggs were pretty bland in taste though the texture was good. The package also consisted of boiled peas and French beans which were doused in tangy spices. RECOMMENDED.

Chicken Rara: Oh boy! Where to start? The chicken was perfectly mellow, the tomato based gravy rich and full of flavours and the whole ensemble goes so well with our humble roti. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
