Acronym for Dhabha–is Dabhake Kha!” says the beaming chef serving the sizzling starters with the refreshingly tangy, chilled aampanna at ‘Oye Pape’ on the 5th floor of Inorbit mall! Being Tuesday, it was also the day of special offer of one-plus-one: Lunch for two at the cost of one, i.e., Rs 400/- (it is Rs 950/- for two people on regular days).The huge buffet spread with 60 varieties which includes vegetarian and meat varieties is a foodies’ delight, especially when you’re tired after the shopping spree at the Inorbit mall!
While the spunky, punchy one-liners on the menu board hit you in the face, the bright colour combination recharges your aching nerves. Visitors attracted by this black-board display of 60-varities (don’t mind the typo) walk straight into the ‘yummy’ trap!
Taste-buds are tickled with the lovely aroma of starters, chats and the refreshing juices served chilled from the matkas. While waiting for the starters, one can go around and ‘check-out’ the place, pause at the rack which has neatly arranged steel plates, katoris and tumblers all waiting for you to fill up food of your choice. While these visuals slowly build your appetite, warm hosts guide you through the menu. Non-vegetarian foodies can have a blast with mutton, chicken and fish tikkas, while veggies can gorge on vegetarian kebabs, corn fry and French-fries like potato dipped in tangy schezwan sauce. The best part is that piping hot starters and the chilled aamras is unlimited, just like the rest of the menu.
The vegetarian menu isn’t very hatke from other dhabas -the usual jeera rice, naans, tandoori rotis (served hot), mixed kadai vegetables, pickle etc, but interesting desserts make up for the routine - gajar halwa, gulab jamoon, moong halwa–all cooked in desi ghee, leaves you lip-smacking. Non-vegetarian section draws crowds with Hyderabadi dum biryani, gosht gravy, chicken curry etc.
Don’t miss the interesting Gabbar Singh dialogues all around you, will keep you and your kids entertained till the end of your dining experience!
The climax is the chilled dhabe di lassi and buttermilk to wash down (not so greasy) food, followed by mouth freshener, served in the silver-dibba!
