There’s something enticing about food that hisses and smokes. Announcing its presence with considerable fanfare, a sizzler platter, the big daddy of noisy food, guarantees that ultimate gastronomic satisfaction. While you may cower in embarrassment, sizzlers let the kids completely off the hook.
Delhi’s chosen few
Food-loving Delhi sadly has just a sprinkling of sizzler joints. Moet’s Sizzlers (Defence Colony) is the hottest place, when it comes to serving all things sizzling. Brainchild of restaurateur Moeth Bindra, this restaurant has an endearing mid-western ambience and dishes out many a hot plate filled with a range of meaty and vegetable steaks and starters. Some of the options are prawn cocktail, garlic bread, sizzling chicken in mushroom sauce, baby lamb chops, mixed grill and stuffed vegetable sizzler. A must-try is Moet’s special sizzler. Fries and veggies come as accompaniments. In true Delhi style, Moet’s has begun serving kebabs as well!
If you can ignore the sloppy service, Gola's (Defence Colony) sizzlers is not too bad either. A packed house during weekdays stands testimony to the decent nosh they serve here. The menu is impressive and the chicken, mutton and fish sizzlers vary from being tangy to spicy and everything in-between. Not to be missed is the tandoori pomfret. You also have the option of Indian food at this place.
Sizzlers: Midwest style
Here’s to the Tex-Mex avatar of sizzlers. From sizzling Fajitas to other scrumptious starters, Rodeo (Gurgaon and Connaught Place) does them hot and spicy. You could wash these down with some nice mocktails. Pebble Street (New Friends Colony) is on the right track as far as sizzlers go. The sauces are lip-smacking. Apart from the usual European fare, Fajitas are also “sizzlingly” popular. While sizzler hopping, you could try Ruby Tuesday's various outlets for chicken or fajita sizzlers. TGIF, the chain restaurant, does fajita sizzlers as well.
United Coffee House
Surprised? We too were initially, but a casual tete-a-tete with old-timers and we are completely converted. Yes, UCH has always been a strong presence in the sizzler bandwagon.
Foodcourts at some malls too, have sizzler counters as well.
So say aye to smoking hot food that literally sizzles!
