Delhi is dwelling to many upscale eating places and new ones maintain cropping up every now and then. Some of them dwell a brief life and a few dwell on to stay in our hearts. Chica is one restaurant that’s right here for the lengthy haul. The discerning inhabitants of Delhi is at all times searching for newer experiences however what we’re at all times searching for is opulence, luxurious, soothing atmosphere, and naturally, good meals. Chica tick marks all the things in our guidelines. The excessive-octane restaurant had been riveting Delhiites on the lookout for a very good time, and it piqued my curiosity to go to myself to strive it out.

It was a memorable night. The rain Gods had given a momentarily respite from the blazing summer season warmth and it was the proper day to expertise the alfresco eating at Chica. While the climate put me in a very good second, my spirits went hovering excessive the second I stepped into the restaurant that’s nothing wanting an architectural marvel.  The entrance arch brimming with mesmerising multi-hued flowers takes you contained in the open French-themed backyard which is a meld of greens and blooms providing a nature’s getaway within the midst of the chaotic metropolis. Not that the indoor eating space was any much less stunning.


A Gastronomical Journey To Remember:

The menu at Chica is impressed from the tales of the Samurais to the journeys of Sultans, and focuses on Asian & Mediterranean cuisines, bringing forth the fusion of the 2 – MediterAsian!

While I used to be enamoured by the attractive setting, my style buds have been thanking me for treating them to an ambrosial meal. I kicked off my dinner with heady cocktails (should-strive – Sunset Boulevard) paired with my favorite sushis; and to my delight first got here in Kamikaze – a intelligent amalgamation of salmon, tuna and crabstick that permit out a font of flavours. Mango and Avocado sushi got here in as fairly a shock – I wasn’t very positive about alphonso in sushi however I fairly appreciated it. The sweetness of the contemporary mango complemented the creaminess of avocados.  The platter pf dimsums had Bokchoy Wrapped Chicken, Smoked Pork Gyoza, Sesame Prawn & Caviar, and Gold Leaf Charcoal Scallop & Asparagus. While I loved all these dimsums, I felt Bockchoy Chicken might do higher with extra juices. However, the flavours have been on level.


Next on my desk was Mint Crispy Lamb mixed with crispy lotus stem – it was so scrumptious that I needed to lick off the entire bowl. Crispy meat with a bang of nicely-balanced flavours – it was simply good. And that is why it will get my vote for essentially the most beneficial dish in Chica. Edamame Kawarma – tender hen flanked by edamame hummus, paired with pita bread is one other should-strive entree that labored up my urge for food for extra.

Thankfully, I used to be introduced the chef-particular Pump – Sourdough Pide which was extra like an eye fixed-opener. If you thought pumpkin on pizza was only a farce, you must strive the Pump in Chica to grasp why the idea made waves. Chef Adit Grover neutralised the tanginess and sweetness of pumpkin with the sturdy flavours of goat cheese and chimichurri. Caramelised walnuts lend in the correct quantity of crunch and arugula leaves made it refreshing to the core. After having the incredible pizza, my palate rejected the baos that have been served, however then, one of the best was but to return.


My meal got here to a candy finish with Miso Caramel Cheesecake and Bailey’s Tiramisu. And I’ve no qualms in admitting that it’s the greatest Tiramisu I’ve ever had. The pungency of Baileys and bitterness of cocoa have been muted to place forth a soothing, creamy, candy dish – and that is what desserts are speculated to be. 

Chica’s menu displays the culinary evolution of its creators with each chunk seasoned with deliciousness. This place isn’t be missed.
