Shiv Sagar - A review
Mumbai's famed Shiv Sagar
opened up finally a few months ago in Delhi on Janpath . I was expecting
it to be more of a ' street food ' kind of place so was pleasantly
surprised at the extensive menu which does bring many famed street foods
from Mumbai and Delhi on to the table in a clean and comfortable
setting , along with other favorite dishes from all over India.
The restaurant is huge , on two levels , spacious and comfortable with lots of natural lighting which works well for me .
went with my family so we got to order and taste a lot . Pao Bhaji and
Vada Pao naturally were a must order and were superb . Bhel I felt could
have done with more of a kick , or maybe I like my chaat over
spiced.Bedmi Aloo was excellent as were paneer tikkas , another surprise
was Veg Tawa Pulao .On our servers insistence we ordered Chili idlis -
Idlis cut and tossed in a Schezwan batter and fried - SUPERB ! And yes
the famed Mumbai Sandwich a must order too. We ended our meal with Paan
Kulfi - I was kind of vary about ordering that as I expected some
synthetic flavors , but it had the real stuff in it and was a winner
with my sisters and mom .
All in all a very happy experience ,
the menu will take a couple of visits to explore , which I am happy to
do over the next few months as is the kind of food that is close to my
heart . Super well done Varun Puri !
