Part 1: About the Restaurant
Desi Di is located in one of the posh localities in Chennai - POES Garden
It has ample parking facility for 2/4 wheelers.
Set up in silent location. This is away from city traffic.
The theme is attractive. It takes you back to the retro period.
Staffs were very helpful and friendly.
Interiors were done so beautifully and even minute details were taken care of.
Perfection is the apt name for the set up. Here are some of the clicks from the restaurant 👇
Part 2 - About the Food!!
I was here this noon with my other foodie pals. They were vegetarian & I preferred pure non-veg 😍
While they were busy tasting veggie food, I started belting non-veg food.
What were served?
I have given the list of food that we’re being served in the same order:
Litchi Jamun Juice
Paneer Burji Khakra
Mutton Kebab with Turnip Purée & Naan
Veg Cutlet Chops(Beetroot)
Vada Bao(Aloo Bonda with Garlic Chutney with home made steam bun)
Sweet Corn & Drumstick Soup
Afghani Chicken(Nattu Kozhi)
Multi Saath Paneer
Multi Millet Khichdi
Green Apple Jalebi
Gulab Jamun Cheese Cake &
Sulaimani Tea 🙏
Chef Aaron took lot of time & trouble to explain about the specialty of each food/dish. We were told that each were prepared based on the seasonal fruit/vegetable when it comes to veg dish and for non-veg, it is the forgotten or very rarely used items. For instance, the fish that was served isn’t the one, we get normally from the market. The produce is local but we tend to forget them owing to the preference given to other varieties. He is trying to overcome that.
Each and every dish was prepared with meticulous attention. There us a great variation in the ingredients and masala being used in fish,chicken, Mutton etc.,
I also had a chance to taste few of the veggie fish and trust me, they tasted divine.
Try it!! You’ll surely be falling in love with it 👍 #DesiDi
