Imly, Rajendra Place - Review

After numerous praise and amazing reviews, I finally got the chance to visit this place.
Though they have spread their wings to different parts of Delhi NCR, The Rajendra Place one remains the prime unit which had to be visited.

One of the main attractions here is the 250 meter long railway themed restaurant. Seating shaped like coaches, with luggage space given overhead containing cute trunks. {No, you don’t need to keep your bags up there}

This train themed restaurant serves the best of the street food. Its menu is classified based upon the place of Origin!
My favorite was,

Dahi Puchkas: I was sold when I saw how it was presented. It came about in a little Ferris wheel.

On my first bite, It was literally an explosion of chatpata chat in my mouth; an overflowing one, actually.

Bombay Junction: Pav bhaji

Everyone knows that Delhi’s Pav Bhaji is different from the Bombay one! The one served at Imly was very similar to the ones we have in Bombay! It was way different from any Delhi wala would prepare it.

So, if you like Bombay ki Pav Bhaji, you’ll definitely love this one!

Rajasthan & Gujarat Junction: Dahi Bhalla:

I don’t really prefer Dahi bhalle, but this one is surely a delight. Gooey and chatpate.

Also, the drinks here are basics >

Kokum Shikanji:

Kokum is a fruit basically originating from Maharashtra!

The drink was sweet and salty at the same time!

Desi Mojito:

The famous old mojito with a chatpata twist, making it Imly’s Desi Mojito.
Definitely, a nice way to start your meal.

Mango Banta Shikanji:

Mango flavored shikanji was something that I never had before.
Presence of mango made it sweet, whereas the presence of banta made it as cool.

Uttar Pradesh Junction: Karare Palak Ki Chaat
{Ordered on the suggestion by the one serving us}

It was basically spinach leaves, roasted and topped with chaat, sev.
The leaves were not really karare, but got a little soggy. I have had better, so wouldn’t recommend this!
Delhi Terminal: Papri Chat

Similar to the Karare Palak ki Chaat, but except the karare papad;
The chaat remains pretty much the same though!


Jalebi with Rabdi

The combination of Jalebi with Rabdi remains a constant when it comes to desserts.

So, at a place like this where they have done every street food to its best; I had to try!
At the very first bite, I was in love!

The jalebis were crispiest and the thinnest jalebis that you could have had anywhere; served along with cold rabdi.

Rasmalai Tiramisu:
This item on the menu had all my attention from the moment I laid eye on it.

Rasmalai was crushed and laid on the bottom of a glass, while the tiramisu and cream covered it to the brim.
I was however, disappointed with it; had high expectations.

To end the meal,
they give you little imlies to take on your way out.

Overall, This meal surely left me craving for more!
A place so fine, with amazing food, and so reasonable deserves a visit and all the praise!
