INDIAN ACCENT RESTAURANT in NEW DELHI

This review is different, since it is a guest post by a Twitter friend?/acquaintance?/cyber-friend? –  well, anyway, someone with whom I chat and tweet online. His Twitter handle is @alltough, and last month, he tweeted a review of a Delhi restaurant, which caught my eye.

@alltough tweeted in a series of posts – for those of you who don’t tweet, you are limited to the numbers of characters per tweet.

This review, sentence by sentence and photo by photo, appealed to me enormously as it unfolded slowly in cyber-space, and so I asked @alltough if he would guest post for me.

Here is his review.

 

A pictorial tribute to an exquisite fusion dinner that was indulged in at the Indian Accent restaurant on March 28, 2012 based in the Manor Hotel in 77, New Friends Colony. The meal was prepared by the friendly Chef Manish Mehrotra that evening for a table of five. For their menu online, click here: http://www.themanordelhi.com/restaurant-menus.htm

  1. Went to the Indian Accent at the Manor Hotel last evening. Had never heard of it before but now I won’t stop raving about it for a few days.

  2. Had the most delicious little parathas stuffed with blue cheese as an appetiser. I think, I can safely recommend, it is worth dying for it.

    Too much naatak; too little to eat – a cheese ball hung over a slender cup filled with shorba. I couldn’t dunk it

  4. Items on menu have a slight Indian twist to it hence the name. the chef came to our table & explained the aesthetics of his presentation.

  5. most fine dining places can be quite snobbish but this one had the friendliest staff. They make you feel at home. not everything is priced.

    The chef sent this to our table as a complimentary item:  enjoyed the tangy chilli strawberry dip but ignored liver

    It took time for us to touch this one because nobody had the heart to destroy the way it looked. Potato chaat

    This was a strict no-no for me. I pretended it wasn’t there. some part of a goat’s ankle many will relish

    crisp Mexican rotis stuffed with chicken gravy (naming whatever I like as I don’t remember menu) this was delish

    I could have died & gone to heaven if I had eaten the whole thing. Prawns on a bed of thick Goan rice. Must have

    Some very exotic fish whose name I can’t be bothered with. With fried lotus roots. Again, nice mellow flavour.

  14. The names on the menu were simple but long and without any added adjectives like ‘creamy’, ‘smooth’ and ‘spicy’, but staff use it liberally.

  15. dessert was strictly okay. Fancy names but I was too stuffed to change the way my palate felt. Order assorted stuff & share in a small group

  16. Indian Accent is in the Manor Hotel in New Friends Colony (West) at #77. Make a reservation. Good experimental food and great service. Go.

  17. We paid for our food. My hosts loved it so much they asked the unassuming celebrity chef to come to South Africa and open one there. #Delhi
