Sundays are synonymous for lazying around. Most of the times I skip breakfast and go for brunch instead.This time we decided to take our love for brunch to a different level, by visiting The Great Kabab Factory at Radisson Blu Plaza , Delhi. TGKF needs no introductions, especially the one at Radisson Blu Plaza, Mahipalpur, its the mother of all the kabab factories you have ever eaten at. This restaurant was opened almost 17 years ago and has been one of the favorite restaurants for those who love north Indian, clay oven cooked food. Being a north Indian, its a comfort food for me.
The restaurant has a rustic, understated feel to it. It looks like a dhaba, but with a bar & See-through kitchen area. On sundays when you don’t want to use your brain much and just sit back & enjoy delicious veg & non-veg dishes, choosing brunch would be a wise choice. You don’t really have to bother with the menu, be comfortable and enjoy dishes served one after the other by a courteous staff. Free flow of succulent kababs & curries is all one needs after a maddening week at work.
First thing I noticed was how spacious the restaurant was. Second were royal blue glasses placed on all the table We tasted both Veg & non veg kababs and I am sure you will curse me after looking at all the yummy droolworthy pictures
The brunch started with salad, that had pineapples & fresh veggies.
An assortment of chutneys/relishes were kept on the table with onions & chillies. We started with a glass of wine & Virgin Mojito.
Next was delicious, melt in your mouth, burtsting with flavours – Galouti Kabab. It was indeed one of the best Galouti Kababs I have ever tried. It was served with Ulte Tave ki roti, which was soft & delicious. Best way to have it is to make a quick roll, stuffing Kabab, onions and a spoonful of mint chutney. It was so good, that we were left asking for more, not that they weren’t serving another round, it just that we wanted to keep space in our tummies for some more yummies
Next up was Ajwaini Jheenga – Delicious Prawn kabab, merinated and cooked in spices. It was tender & juicy.
Lazeez Paneer Tikka was soft & delicious cottage cheese cooked with spices. It was surely a treat for vegetarians.
Chooza Khadamasala was chicken cooked with bones in clay over. It was quite delicious with chicken being soft & juicy from inside & spicy from outside.
We were served sweet breads in between, I loved this one that had fennel seeds & cashewnuts. It was soft & delightful, for me it worked more like a palate cleanser.
Aloo Chutneywale, true to the name these were potatos coated in mint/green chutney, cooked in tandoor. It was an ok-ish dish. Though it tasted good, I didn’t find it interesting.
Singharey Mirch Ke Tinkey – Waterchestnuts & bell peppers on a skewer, I loved the crunch coming from water chestnuts ! I was assuming that after all the cooking it would have turned soggy, but it was juicy & crunchy ! Nice change, and for me it was one of the highlights of the brunch !
Gosht Seekh Kabab – Good old mutton seekh. It was tender, super delicious and full of flavours !
Afghani Murgh Tikka – Subdued flavours & succulent chicken tikka ! I prefer regular chicken tikka over Afghani one because the latter tastes bland.
Tali Macchi – deep fried fish, didn’t find it impressive. It was bit soggy , however the fish was adequately cooked and quite flaky.
Kale Chane Ki Tikka – Good God ! This one was my most favorite kebab ! It was so delicious, moist and spicy ! Generally chickpea tikka/fritters don’t taste good, as they tend to be too dry, but this one was superb ! It looked almost like Galouti Kabab !
Shahi Phaldhari Chaat – Another good one for vegetarians
After all the kebabs we were served buttermilk, which was meant to cleanse the palate, and prepare your tast buds for next course.
In the main course we had – Dal Tadka, Dal Factory, Mutter Paneer & Gosht Curry. Gosht Curry won my heart. It was homestyle curry with moderate spices and light gravy. Simple yet delightful ! Dal Factory is our good old dal makhani I had it with butter naan, lachcha paratha & Murgh Biryani.
That was not all ! In desserts we got to taste 5 different Indian Sweets – Tinka Kulfi, Malai Chaap, Kesari Phirni , Balushahi, Jalebi with firni. Needless to mention Tinka Kulfi & Jalebi won our hearts ! Those crips jalebis were delicious !
All in all we thoroughly enjoyed the lavish Sunday Brunch at The Great Kabab Factory, Radisson Blu Plaza Delhi. The deal is a steal since you get to taste so much deliciousness at such an affordable price.
