FROM THE modest paranthewalas to the elaborate restaurants, the place has it all. A shopper's paradise, South Extension actually means a lot more, what with restaurants like BBQ vying to make mouths water. Situated in South Extension Part I, the restaurant promises the very best of barbeque at surprisingly affordable prices.
Serving the good old Mughlai and tandoori food, BBQ differs from the traditional restaurants in many ways. The limitations of space and not so elaborate décor may startle you to begin with. An all too familiar menu that leaves no scope for twisting your tongue for the sake of pronunciation might also be a killjoy for some. Yet others might find it a bit unromantic with no music. All this until the taste buds take charge!
It's when the magic of a hot and sour soup gets going or the murg malai rolls melt in your mouth that you feel your appetite being whetted, but it is the reshmi kabab, a delicacy with pieces of chicken bound together by egg that is perhaps the most enticing. A reassurance that everything is halal and nothing is fried leaves you with no choice but to let your teeth sink into everything on offer. One might like to savour the kababs before choosing the gravy items or the toothsome tandoori pomfret.
A stuffed tangri with its qeema filling, served along with green chutney is worth trying, as is the murg Afghani with its cashewnut gravy. Vegetarians would find the Paneer Tiranga - a combination of paneer tikka, Afghani paneer tikka and haryali paneer tikka in orange, white and green - particularly interesting. The main course with its murg curry having a mutton qeema gravy and angheeti dal which is cooked for 24 hours on the tandoor, is appetising as well. An assortment of breads complements the regular kadhai paneer and navrattan korma well.
However, being strict to its theme BBQ doesn't serve a variety of beverages or desserts.
What it offers is simply scrumptious, wholesome fresh food with the option of free home delivery, apart from catering services for parties.
The saffron phirni is just the perfect way to wrap up your grand Mughlai meal. Go to BBQ if you are serious about the regal stuff that tandoori food is all about, and don't mind a small compromise on variety.
