These Delhi Restaurants Redefine Food Presentation

Whenever some says they’re travelling to Delhi first question is, did they try butter chicken, Paratha from paratha gali and the other mouthwatering street food they have on offer in the capital city. When you think of paneer tikka and tandoori chicken, you picture the rustic presentation of food, where it’s all about the taste. But here are a few restaurants that are not only concentrating on the taste but also about the presentation of the food. They want the customer to eat from his eyes as well as his mouth. It’s an overall experience.

If Heston Blumenthal is someone you admire and love his experiments with food, you’ll surely love what these restaurants have done with food.

1. Indian Accent

“First we eat with our eyes,” says Manish Mehrotra, the chef at New Delhi’s award winning Indian Accent. So you can be rest assured that not only your tongue but all your senses are going to be feasting when you visit this place. The fine dining ambience with outdoor sitting serves some of the most spectacular fusion food you would taste in India.

Roast Scallops Balchao, Saboodana Papad, Kokum Powder: The wide contrast of the roots of the ingredients. And that plating is just breathe taking and so delicate.
