We experienced this in its best form at Smokeys, Khan Market, New Delhi. Shivkaran Singh , the mastermind behind this Mr.Shivkaran Singh has always worked wonders in his restaurants. The techniques and the expertise he has put in his offerings really shows.
This new outlet in the most bustling area of Khan Market has opened around 8-10 days back. Done beautifully in hues of orange and black with ample natural light and murals and quotes on the walls makes it really sophisticated. The bar on the 2nd floor is stocked up nicely with very talented bar men. It also boasts of a small balcony which will be more worthwhile in cooler months.
We started with their signature cocktails like Lock stock and smoking barrel and Mimosa mimic which were utterly different and very well made. But my favorite turned out to be the Melon sangria and the New old fashioned. I usually don’t prefer whiskies in my Cocktails but I loved the new old fashioned here as it was just too good and I could not taste too much of whisky flavor in my mouth.
Accompanied with one of the best Tossed sausages dish and the Atomic ( a spicy version of the sauce) chicken wings. I ordered a Chicken caesar salad again as always which was good. One of us ordered the Lamb kibbeh a traditional mid eastern kebab which came out to be really awesome. Soft with good flavors of sumac and crunch of pine nuts.
I was totally boggled when I tried the Pork ribs….The best of the lot with house made condiments and marinade.Totally succulent and fall of the bone texture. The Burger is very popular on their menu. And yes I realized why it was so popular, when I dug into the lamb burger myself. Best burger I have had till date. The sweetness of the onion relish and juiciness of the meat with so many flavors and textures just bursting into my mouth. I could not have enough of it, so definitely going again soon to have it again. We also liked the Hotdogs sliders especially the Andhra style tenderloin and the bacon wrap sausage.
They have some interesting desserts too. Like the Banoffee pie and with nice crust at the bottom and the choco lava cake witrh ice cream which was also fine.
Overall a nice chic place for a quick bite or a relaxed evening with a special cocktail and a smoked meat creation.
