Japanese food is what I usually write about and it’s what floats my boat for sure! However, I recently visited Jamun – which is a regional Indian eatery and celebrates India’s rich and diverse regional Indian cuisine; and the food is what made me write this blog post. Jamun is located in the posh Lodhi colony market and brass utensils with Jamun colour themed interiors get ready to be transferred to a traditional Indian eatery with warm and welcoming vibes.
Looking to explore the regional dishes we stared with Jamun Chicken 66 – a step up on the old classic chicken 65 marinated in spice and curry leaves.
Pork chili fry was the next appetizer which we tried – stir fried with onions and chillies. Before we could even get our hands on the appetizers – we were severed “Chutney Charlie” which is a 3 tier papad platter – fried, roasted along with a huge selection of chutneys and salads. And for me was the star of the show!!!
In the drinks department we tried couple of mocktails which came highly recommended – the Rooh-Lemonade (twist on the classic drink) and Jaisalmer Juan made with agave syrup – was quite refreshing!
The mains which consisted of raw mango prawn curry – for me mango and prawns could never work together but they compliment both each other just beautifully with subtle on the spices. Jamun-e-Josh Mutton curry was the second dish we tasted and it not the usual mutton curry we get in north India, it was a very pleasant change for my palate. In the breads too we
continued with the regional theme – Poi bread which is a Goan specialty, appams and a garlic naan, could not stop myself from ordering one!!!
With our tummies stuffed with all the food, we somehow manage to push through and order dessert (Like we were going to miss it). Rabri faluda and Passteis de nata which is served with cinnamon ice cream; I missed trying the Jamun Kulfi which is recommended to eaten with Himalayan salt using the cute little salt grater.
Assorted local candies platter was served last – and trust me it had pretty much every candy you may have eaten during your childhood; a trip down the memory lane is certain!!!
From food to service to interiors everything has been thought out like an indoor shed that resembles a traditional hut and in my opinion I would probably rate them as one of the best Indian restaurant in Delhi!!!
