Restaurant Review: SodaBottleOpenerWala, Khan Market, New Delhi – 4/5 Stars

What excited me about SodaBottleOpenerWala when it opened in Gurgaon was trying out “Parsi/Irani/Mumbai street food” sitting so close to my office. When I got to know about it opening in Khan market which is quite close to my house, I was obviously thrilled. I was delighted to be a part of its launch.

The interiors and decor transport you to the Irani restaurants of Mumbai—the walls, the pictures, the menu, the bakery corner, the furniture..everything was just so interesting- full marks on creativity. Everything seems to resemble the home and lifestyle of the quintessential Parsi from old Hindi movies. Personally I found the ambience much better than the Cyber hub outlet. Sitting in such an ambience amidst Parsi perennial delicacies that started flowing, I was having a wonderful time. I was just thinking of which dishes to try when Danesh Irani, a Parsi stand-up comedian from Mumbai walked in and took the audience by surprise. He narrated hilarious incidents about Parsis which made our evening even more enjoyable.

Coming to the food- authentic with great amount of detail paid to the manner in which it is served. We hungrily devoured Berry Pulao, Mutton dhansak, Vada pao to start with. Berries and fried cashews gleaming appealingly, it was a matter of seconds before we dug in. Mutton Dhansak was simple, yet toothsome, mutton cooked to perfection adding fantastic delight. We also tried Patra ni machchi- fish cooked with green chutney wrapped in banana leaves, Vengna no Patio- a tasty spicy brinjal preparation that I loved even though I am not a brinjal fan and Tamota Sali Par Eeda- baked us with Parsi tomatoes. And all of them were super attention-grabbing. The drinks were well made and interesting with the glass bottle presentation making it even more alluring.

Candies from the good old grandma days were a final end to our meal- kala khatta and boiled orange candy which induced strong childhood recalls, stockpiled on the shelf were lines of archetypal ‘martabaans‘ or bucolic Indian glass jars. We even had fresh home-baked style cookies- shrewberry biscuits and berry nankhatai which was full of crisp goodness.

Chef Anahita was sweet enough to take time out and come talk to us. The staff was polite and more than helpful to make us understand what the dish was.

Everything fell into comfort zone! And I would definitely fo there the next time to try out the rest of the stuff that I could accommodate in my overstuffed tummy.

XOXO
