Food Review – The Drunk House (Rajouri Garden,Delhi )
Dr. Preeti Chauhan
I recently visited The Drunk House Restaurant and Lounge in Rajouri Garden ,Delhi .This place is very popular among the Kitty ladies groups of that area and on most afternoons if you walk in there may very well be a kitty party in progress .
Before you get any ideas about this place because of the Kitty reference , let me clarify that this place has an upbeat and modern feel to it and yet a cosy tavern like feel because of the wooden furniture and dim lighting .It has an in house DJ and a large screen for the young crowds .
I was particularly happy with the service as all the servers knew the details and descriptions about the food on the menu .They were also attentive and the food arrived in a short while of ordering .
Starters – For starters there was mutton Keema Pao( mutton mince in tawa masala served with pao ) , honey chilli potatoes (crispy potato batons tossed in sweet and spicy sauce ) and Jalapeno poppers (Cheesy croquettes of jalapeno served with Cajun Mayo ).
The Mutton Keema Pao and the Jalapeno Poppers stood out among the starters .
Honey Chilli Potatoes
Drinks and Beverages – I tried their Mint Mojito, Peach lemonade , Chocolate Cookie Negroni (Chocolate Cookie Syrup, Bourbon, Espresso and Vermouth ),Teekha Beer (kiwi,Chat masala, Black salt and Beer ) and Mint and cucumber daiquiri .
Chocolate Cookie Negroni
Main course –
Pasta Alfredo , Pasta Arrabbiata, Mediterranean Sandwiches (grilled assorted Pepper ,zucchini sandwiched in bread with Basil Pesto Mayo ) ,Corn Pepper Pizza .
Corn and Pepper Pizza
The Pasta Arrabiata was very flavorful and al dente and in every bite of the mediterranean sandwiches one could taste the pesto and the zucchini .Yum !!
For main course I ordered a Stir fried Chinese greens, Plain rice ,Paneer Lababdar ,Lacha parantha ,Dal Makhan wali and Vegetable Biryani .The breads were very good and most of the dishes served were very good especially the Dal .The Stir Fried Chinese greens with rice was also quite good but i feel the flavors could have been built a bit more .

Desserts – Chocolate Walnut brownie,Candy Putin ( Fried kit kat bar topped with caramel sauce and warm marshmallows ,Gems and Chocolate pizza . The Candy Putin desserts won unanimously for its melt in the mouth kitkats and marshmallows .
Gems and Chocolate pizza
Sheesha – I tried their pan flavoured Sheesha and it was very nice and had a great flavor too .
FINAL VERDICT – All in all , a great place with Good food and even better drinks coupled with brisk service and cool ambience .This place is definitely happening and I rate it a 4.5/5 .
