Bharawan Da Dhaba at Ranjit Avenue is where we dined this day, after the Kanha Sweets lunch and a pre-supper at the Golden Temple langar after doing some sevva there.
This place looked relatively new, bright and sprightly, unlike what you picture when you hear the term ‘dhaba’. We tired quite a range of tandoor dishes here from your standard paneer tikka and paneer malai tikka to stuffed mushrooms and things in between.
We ordered their vegetable seekh kebabs, their spinach corn seekh kebab, cheese corn fritters, stuffed potatoes. Everything was good, seasoned and flavoured well. The paneer – cottage cheese as you call it in English, was very soft and tender. And even the malai tikka version, which looked relatively bland tasted great. The green yogurt chutney to go along with these tandoori bites was very bleh. They should get that bettered for sure.
For something more filling, a cousin-in-law who’s fond of biryani ordered that. I was skeptical about trying biryani in Northern India, but it was good.
Another cousin-in-law (older), in a fit to try and make a point, messed up the biryani plate before I got to taking a picture! But sadly, he didn’t get to make his point, as I ignored and took a picture of the messed up plate with as big a smile as ever.
They had flattened versions of gulab jamuns, which were very, very good. I didn’t get to eating the phirni, but folks who tried it weren’t very pleased with it.
There were a couple of lassi glasses ordered too, and they were your usual good.
